My Karcher dirtblaster worked perfectly yesterday, but today

Customer Question

My Karcher dirtblaster worked perfectly yesterday, but today is producing only a jet and not spinning. What can I do to overcome this?

Hello there,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Please note, I am just a moderator for this category, I can only try and find experts to help, I can't answer the question itself.

Thank you!

I really need an answer to this problem as I am busy cleaning off all my fences in preparation for spray painting and the Karcher Dirtbuster is not revolving and only leaving lines where it has been used whereas the day before it was working perfectly.

Check the end nozzle for debris and see if you can rotate it freely. The water going through the nozzle has to spin it. If it does not spin, it has to be debris or the nozzle/orfice is damaged! There should be a snap ring that allows the nozzle to be disassembled!
