Instructions

  1. 1

    Verify the power switch is in the "I" ("on") position. Although apparently simple, forgetting to switch on the pressure washer is surprisingly common.

  2. 2

    Confirm the pressure washer is plugged into a working electrical socket. Check the outlet is switched on if your household outlets are fitted with on/off switches.

  3. 3

    Replace the extension cord with either a 25-foot 12/3-gauge cord or a 50-foot 10/3-gauge cord. Other types of extension cords may not work with your Karcher washer.

  4. 4

    Check your fuses or circuit breakers. Some of your electrical circuits may not be functioning due to a blown fuse or tripped breaker. Verify that all fuses or breakers are active.
