Customer Question

When I turn on the water, the high pressure hose pops out of the trigger gub. What does the manual mean by aligning the connector correctly?

Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.

What brand of machine is this?

Most hoses are either screwed onto the gun or permanently fixed to the gun.

Customer: replied 9 months ago.
It is a Karcher K3.000. The hose does not screw onto the gun. As the manual says, "Push the .... hose onto the trigger gun until it locks audibly."

I am sorry but I am not real familiar with this machine. However I believe that the only piece that comes off is the extension and it does push in and twist to lock it into place. Does this have a quick connect hose on it? Is it an electric or gas powered machine? The K3.000 is just a series number and not the model number.
