How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?
We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :
A clogged carburetor is most commonly caused by leaving fuel in the pressure washer for a long period of time. Over time, some of the ingredients in the fuel may evaporate, leaving behind a thicker, stickier substance. This sticky fuel can clog up the carburetor and cause the engine to run stall.
Water leaking from a loose connection can cause the unit to cycle on and off. Verify if the pressure hose has an O-ring at the connection. If missing, this will also cause the unit to cycle on and off. While the unit is running look for any water leaks that may cause the unit to turn back on.
Low Engine Oil
The pressure washer starts normally, runs for a few seconds, and then dies. Solution: Check that your washer has enough oil in it. It is critical to check oil levels before starting your washer. Replace the oil as recommended in the user manual.
If your machine cuts out occasionally, it could be because you are using an electric extension cable. Extension cables must always be 13 amp constant rating and no longer than 10 metres. Please check your operating instructions for correct specifications.
Some of the most common faults that will make your washer stop mid cycle include thermostat failure, problems filling up with water for the rinse cycle, or even pump problems that prevent your washer from draining. One thing that you can check yourself is the lid switch.
Surging occurs when the pressure is fine and then weakens. It is caused when the flow rate for the pump cannot be supported by the water supply. Problems can mount from there so it is important that it is dealt with as soon as possible.
PLEASE NOTE: You should always press the RESET button on the GFCI before using the pressure washer.
One of the most common reasons a pressure washer won`t stay running is because the spark plug is dirty or damaged. To clean the spark plug, you will need to remove it from the engine and use a wire brush to remove any build-up on the electrode.
Clogged carburetors or air filters can cause a pressure washer not to start. If your pressure washer won`t start, you can also check for a clogged carburetor or air filter.

The simple answer is yes, pressure washers can overheat. This is not unique to pressure washing machines – anything with a motor or power source can overheat in the right (or perhaps, wrong) circumstances.
Machine Type: Gas pressure washers can typically run for about 30 minutes before they need a break. Electric models can usually go for an hour or more. If you`re using a hot water pressure washer, you`ll need to give it breaks more frequently – about every 15 minutes.
If your pressure washer is refusing to work or even turn on, the culprit could potentially be the power switches. Most pressure washers use two micro switches that disconnect both the live and neutral connections between the supply and the motor. These switches can jam cutting the power out from reaching the motor.

Oil appears to have come out of the oil filler cap. Is this a sign of overfilling the oil, or something else?
Id definitley say its over filled. try checking the dipstick
My power washer wouldn’t start. I replaced the spark plug and it started right up. but spray was a bit sporadic and then it began billowing thick white smoke and stopped running?
White smoke IS NOT fuel related. you twit! white smoke indicates oil consumption. they let anyone answer these things
Unit pressurizes then unloads over and over again with green tip, with red works perectly
Soap feed The soap feed hose on my Karcher 2650 does not suck up the soap into the washer. I pulled off the connector piece that the hose is connected to. I can blow through the hose. There is a little metal finger thing that you can tell pushes up into place when the water pressure is high. It seems like it is supposed to drop down and allow some soap through when the water is running. I found a loose(attached to nothing) gasket, looks like a little donut. It was just free floating in there. I’m thinking it may go over the finger mechanism. I just put it back on top of the finger, like a halo and put the screw in piece back in. Anyway, if you know, let me know how all that goes together.
I fixed mine works good too, watch my video step by step i put it on youtubehttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UFXSLOBL0Mg
New pressure washer runs starts and runs for 30-45 minutes with no problems then dies and will not restart. Once it cools for a few minutes it will restart but will die again quickly. If it is allowed to sit for 30+ minutes it will run for another half hour but then dies again. Changed oil, gas, checked all obvious areas. Any suggestions?
Try removing the carb bowl and check for dirt/water etc , also if the machine is over heating it may be getting vapour locked
Motor stops, washer was working , full level in oil and good oil. Don’t starts again, apparently barred engine, does not “turn” around.
Whats it like if you remove the pump and gearbox if driven by a gearbox?
In the base of a karcher k2,27
Diagram attached hope this helps:)
I got the pressure washer started – lots of smoke etc after not having used 3 years. I then poured in wrong oil to top it off – my brother’s chain saw bar oil. DARN. After 3-4 minutes it started rattling and stopped. Can’t pull the chord to get started. Did it seize the engine? I have drained all oil. Can I try using a cleaner, light weight oil to try to unlock it?
Nope! you have blown the seals and most likely the cylinder is full of water. You will need to take it to the repairer to have it cleaned checked and new seals fitted. $200
