    Hello
    There karcher Alpert’s to have died. I’m wondering whether to try and repair or replace?
    I reckon the motor has gone as it made a rattle noise and stopped immediately after turning it on today. I stupidly connected the water that was already on before the jet hose.
    Pump looks about £30 second hand. New jet washes about £80.
    It’s a k411a which fits well in my single garage too.
    Cheers

    Get a new unit. Fitting a new pump is not the easiest thing to do and if you damage the ceramic/carbon seal in the water chamber you haven't got the skill to replace it.
    A new unit will give you at least a 12 month warranty as well.

    Emailed them directly and suggested an air lock. I had my reservations, but tried it and all started to work!!
