Customer Question

My K 2.40 cycles off and on as soon as the trigger is pulled. It sprays OK and pressure builds up. But as soon as you start spraying the pressure clicks off and on. Glenn Hahn

Check the water inlet screen , where the water hose attaches. If it is restricted with debris ,pump does not get enough flow to keep pressure up.
