Common Faults that can occur:

Whilst this brand of domestic and commercial specification pressure washers are built to a very high standard, as with all electrical and mechanical products, faults can occur. A fault can occur because of a breakdown or damage to a component or an assembly, or it could be because of natural wear and tear that happens over a period of time.

Below we list some of the common faults that can occur with a Karcher Pressure Washer.


Some problems and faults with a pressure washer can be determined and rectified by going over some troubleshooting steps. Below we have listed several that may help you get your Karcher Jet Washer working again:

Is the unit vibrating quite badly? If so check that there is a sufficient flow of water. Check that your water tap is fully turned on and that your connection hose is not coiled / kinked, or twisted.

Does the unit cut out often or just after you have switched it on? If it does - are you using an extension cable or reel? Depending on the model of Karcher that you own you will need an extension cable that at a minimum is rated at 13amps, even the small K2, K3, and K4 models require an extension cable (if used) of 13a.

Is the pump leaking from within the units housing? If this happens, switch and unplug the unit from your main supply. A leaking pump is something that needs to be repaired by your Manchester Karcher Repair shop.

Is your pump hunting when on standby? This can be a sign of a blocked jet nozzle as well as a faulty non return valve. You can check your units nozzle by way of inserting a needle or a thin piece of fuse wire, if this does nor cure it the unit will need inspecting by an experienced repair fitter.

A leaking trigger unit - unless the handle and trigger unit have suffered some damage as a result of being dropped of heavily knocked, this is usually caused by way of a worn and leaking seal. This could be a seal that is fitted inside the handle unit or it could be the one that is fitted to the end of the connecting lance - the easiest way to check this is to replace both water seals for new ones.
