Karcher K4 not functioning...

by EricLeBouffon » Sun Apr 16, 2023 6:22 pm

HI There,

This Karcher worked last time I used it (a year or two?)

Now, nothing happens when I press the trigger.

The power is on and the Karcher is buzing.
The water supply is fine.
Nothing lights up on the handle when I press the trigger (I "think" one of the symbols should light up...) and I do not get any water through.

I left the Karcher switched off with the water supply on for about 10mns.

First time I pressed the trigger, a tiny amount of water went hrough

Any idea?

Thanks

Hi ericlebuffon,
Sound like the pump has seized, if you can get at the driveshaft or reach the impeller with a long screwdriver through the outlet hole, you may be able to free it.

Thanks, I'll give that a shot next time I get access to it (in a few months from now I'm afraid)

Thanks for the idea
