    Default karcher playing up ?????

    motor is running ok but there is a loss of pressure, maybe only working at about 75%.

    anyone have any ideas what might be wrong.

    cant see anything obvious.

    some times, you will get a bit of dirt right at the end of the tip, where the water leaves the lance. its one of the hardest things to get to. so i always check that before any thing. 75% of the time it will be that

    no you will need to remove it, as if you push it back in it will just get pushed to the tip again
