Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! My name is***** a technician with over 10 years of experience, and I'll be assisting you today. Sorry to hear your having issues, please stand by while I look into the problem for you, this is not an immediate service however I will try and respond as soon as possible.

The unit only has a fuse on the plug, there is a thermal cut out but this self resets. As such there is no manual reset switch, so if power is getting to the Karcher but no sign of life then its going to be an electrical failure inside.

You can arrange a repair here

It was a pleasure to assist you today. I hope the above answers the question. If you are happy for the question to be closed there is no need to reply (as this will reopen the question), however do let me know if you have any follow up questions.
