Model Karcher 320H 1.141-205 When first switched on the pressure builds up and then the machine keeps no switching on and off, opening the trigger on the lance and it works ok, close trigger and the pulsing starts again, if left like this it would probably burn the motor out. I have lubricated the brass/plastic piston the operates the on/off switch but problem still exists. I have also opened the pump chamber but cannot see any debris or problems with the rubber seals. Any help would be most app

Noticed dishes on top shelf not entirely clean. Ran machine empty and opened many times during wash. Noticed that Lower Spray Arm works as expected, but Middle Spray Arm turns only 1/8 or less, then Lower Arm spins again. Schematic with Use and Care manual just says pump motor switches from one to the other in certain cycles, but I don't see this happening. Looked for obstructions to water flow and pressure seems normal. Is control for this function part of the pump, or in the control panel?

Our craftsmen electric pressure washer stopped working while in use. We have power - red light on gfci and we tested the master switch - has power too. So what can be the problem? One post mentioned a jammed pump switch. What is that and where is it? We used it 2 weeks ago and it worked fine.


The pump switch they spoke of is an internal switch. It is activated by a valve so that when you let go of the trigger, the machine shuts off. This valve is stuck or the switch is bad. Usually the valve is the problem. I would go to Sears and get ... Pressure Washers

We have a Katcher HDS 3.5/30-4 M Ea. Was using it, stopped using it briefly in the middle of a job, pulled trigger again, and there was a lack of pressure. Went to the machine to troubleshoot. The "engine indicator light" is on. Checked the temperature of machine: fine. Water intake: fine. We have not been running it at high temperatures, but about 50 degrees C. The pressure was at about 2300 PSI before it stopped. Any ideas?

I started working with the Karcher KB4040 pressure washer and all was well for 1-2mins, then it sputered a bit and all power died. All hoses were still attached properly, it hadn't blown a fuse in my house and the fuse in the plug of the washer is working fine.When I switch it on I get nothing. Do you think the motor has packed in? I borrowed the machine from my neighbour who's away on holiday, so don't know much about age of the machine. Any advice much appreciated.

I have a Delonghi dishwasher, it's a stand alone, like a washing machine. The water inlet is connected to the hot water tap, normally used for a washing machine. When we first started using the dishwasher, we kept getting the E4 error message, we reduced the water inlet pressure by turning down the tap, that worked for a while. Just a while ago, we started getting the E4 error message again, not sure we can turn down the tap any further without cutting the water off completely. Do you have a


The E4 error message could be because the water pressure is too low rather than too high. Can you let me know the exact model number of your dishwasher and I should be able to tell you more.\015\012\015\012Regards,\015\012BElectric ... Dishwashers

Stopped Working Hi, My Zanussi Aquapulse Dishwasher (DE6744S)has just stopped working. The red on/off switch still lights up when I try to start off a wash but nothing else happens. I know this is probably just a case of "call out a repair guy" but, even though I've had the machine a few years, I'm I bit miffed on the thought of coughing-up to have the thing repaired because I very rarely use it. Any suggestions? Many thanks
