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 :
If the pressure washer trips the fuse board or blows the electrics in your home, make sure there`s no water in the switch or the other electrical items – and again examine the capacitor if your model carries one.
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.
Air can become trapped in your pump, and this needs a quick fix. Simply turn off your pressure washer and disconnect the hose. Keep your garden hose attached and allow water to run through it for 20-30 seconds. Turn off your garden hose and reassemble.
When an RCD circuit breaker trips or a fuse blows when you switch the appliance on or off, this is usually caused by leakage to the ground or a short circuit. The problem can be caused by the incorrect connection of the appliance.
There are multiple causes which can result in a washing machine tripping the electrics, such as the motor, the heater, the supressor, a wire shorting out, or water leaking onto an electric part.

I have a Karcher B402 Pressure Washer and when i plug it in and turn it on – nothing happens, not a sound. I have checked the fuse and the plug itself and this did not help. I contacted a service technician and they said it would cost £45/hr to have a look and it probably wasn’t worth fixing! Is there anything i can try to narrow down the problem/fix it myself. Any ideas what might have gone wrong? Sorry i can’t give you more info. Cheers
Hi if you remove the torx screws that hold the electric box on and then bypas the on/off switch join wires together. and check the pressure swicth if it is the pressure switch you can bypass this but the machine wont shut down regards

Go to a smaller fuse, but it sounds like the PTO is shorted somewhere:http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&cd=4&ved=0CCoQFjAD&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.mymowerparts.com%2Fpdf%2FCub_Cadet%2FCub_Cadet_Service_and_Repair_Manuals%2FCub_Cadet_RZT_Series_Zero_Turn_Service_Repair_Manual.pdf&rct=j&q=Cub%20Cadet%20RZT%20mower%20manual%20pdf&ei=sWbITayPEoSbtweSvqmSBA&usg=AFQjCNEAreyaCVOyDN0SaP-6A0cxzha8bA&cad=rja
I have a karcher 2.o1 pressure washer does not work when i turn the water on, if i turn the water off it works, cant figure it help , help please
Please try without the high pressure lance on. If this works then you may have a blocked jet in the lance.
Machine will not switch on
Hell,machines dealing with water are having problems with powerswitches,the plastic hood covering the powerswitch might be broken and water might come in.Best thing to do, take the machine apart and look for rusty or wetted parts that should be dry, electrical parts that is..hoping to have helped youhugohugo.lindhout@ gmx.de
Karcher 4.91 checked fuse that is ok but no power
Check and see if you are getting power to the on/off swith. These switches have been known to go bad. Also, check the Ground fault breaker in the plug. Let me know how you make out.
There is no power when you use the sprayer Karcher K2.89
Depends on the model, but it is probably the pump, Most Karchers do not use expensive pumps. Also, if the end of your hose is off, you won’t get much pressure either as it takes a restriction in the end of the hose to increase the pressure. I have commercial pressure washing business & occasionally have an hose end come off, pump problem or high pressure switch problem, but all this stuff can be fixed. Hope this helps you, Rick
Wont turn on , light on plug will not stay on after release of button
Most likely faulty switch. Use licensed repairman for electrical hazard.
