Karcher Pressure Washers

Description

Pressure Washer Cylinder Head

If your Karcher isn't reaching high pressure, and you've noticed the trigger is "pulsing" this could mean you need to replace the cylinder head. The valves in the cylinder head can become blocked and clogged, reducing the tension needed to be able to use the washer to its full potential. 

  • Comes complete with piston seals

This is a genuine Karcher spare, suitable for select appliances in the model fit list.

Please note: For certain models the spare is serial and chassis number dependent. Please contact our call centre with this information so we can advise if the part will fit. Your chassis number will look like: 1.504-604.0, and the serial number will be 6 digits long.

    Had little trouble identifying the right part from web site. Despatch and delivery went smoothly and it arrived ahead of scheduled delivery time. Fitting was quite easy but you do need the special tool bits to get at the screws! Job well done.

  • Q Ref cylinder head for K5.140m 1 Answer

    I received new cylinder head supplied by you this morning Thanks for your quick turn round and service I fitted new head but problem still happening Pump still pulsing when trigger is released every second or so Can you suggest cause and cure

    By Sparky - Hull - 26 September 2013

      The pulsing is caused by a loss off high pressure anywhere between the gun and the cylinder head. You have replaced the head itself but the next part we would try would be Stock Number: ES952769. We cannot guarantee this is the fault but it is the next most likely part in our opinion.

  • Q Water leak 1 Answer

    I have a Karcher 420MH model and seem to have a water leak around the cylinder head area. Is this a common fault and can it be fixed?

      Had the same problem with a 380. Tried to repair but the pressure is too great( shows how good the Karcher is). Bought a new head of espares, stripped and fitted in about 35 minutes.

  • Q My Karcher 3.97 pulses when not flowing.The pressure is low, there are no leaks 1 Answer

    I have changed the cylinder head and checked the water filter in the inlet but the problem persists. What else can be faulty?

      If the cylinder head doesn't fix it then try replacing the Control head which is the plastic housing which sits on top of the cylinder head
