Age, general wear and tear - freezing but you have already stated it was kept indoors. You may be able to repair it yourself - plenty of info on the Internet and YT.

How would that have happened though?

Cracked pump by the sounds of it.

Help With Karcher Pressure Washer
Hi, need a bit of help. I set up my brand new karcher k2 compact. Everything went smooth, used car shampoo on the foam attachment - went to change attachment to the brush then noth… Read more

The above method mentioned worked (:I cheers for the help (y) I'm still a bit annoyed though as I wasted a full bottle of car shampoo that came with the Karcher all for the sake an 'air blockage'

This is highly recommended, I also turn hose on pull trigger on Lance let it run through a bit then turn machine on when I use it to help prevent air locks

Kieran_Wildsmith

I'll give this a go in the morning

This normally fixes the issue. To clarify: Connect all the hoses but not the lance. Keep the machine powered off. Turn on the water & let the water run through the machine for 5mins. This should clear any air blockages. Then turn off the water, switch on the power, reconnect the lance, finally turn on the water again, and it should be working like normal again.

Just be careful if you keep pressing the trigger when it is making the noise and no water is coming out the machine may overheat and burn out

As you have mentioned.. see pic 2. Not the best method but certainly a good buy for the basic mod

Check the back, sometimes it’s sort of hidden and you need to pull it out. https://s1.kaercher-media.com/documents/datasheets/machines/en_GB/1.673-127.0_PI_en_GB.pdf

Kieran_Wildsmith

I wonder why the instructions manual has it included then (confused)

Kieran_Wildsmith

Cheers. I'll have a go with this (y)

This is what you need at the kitchen tap end.

sustar

I am quite sure a friend has a similar kitchen tap and got something like this but from Screwfix https://www.hozelock.com/product/mixer-tap-connector/

rimalpatel007

I don't think the OP kitchen tap has the ability to screw that connector in. OP can you confirm? Otherwise you'll need to look into one where the connector sits over the tap then you connect the hose pipe.

Thanks mate (y)

Yea c120 is fine for cars. at that price point you can. only get the bottom. of the range K2 which is a bit limp. some people prefer karcher, some nilfisk. in my. opinion the higher end of the karcher are very good, K4 etc but at the budget end nilfisk is better. have a look. at flow rate, not just pressure. re what quantity of water can it expel at high pressure. think c120 is 410L a min and K2 320L.
