Did I just kill my new electric power washer by getting it wet?
I picked up a new Karcher electric power washer on Craigslist. I used it for about an hour and it was working just fine. I was cleaning up some dirt and leaves on the ground and wasn't careful enough. The power washer got splattered with dirt. I rinsed it off but since then it won't work. I let it dry out for a few days in case that was the issue but it still won't work. I know people have problems with these little power washers. If it's my fault I certainly can't go back to the person who sold it to me for a refund. But if it seems like it should be able to tolerate being splattered then I will probably contact him. I still may not get a refund since he did test it ahead of time and it did work for an hour but I thought it might be worth a try.
Is there anything else I might be able to try to get it to work again?
Thanks for you help. Maybe next time I should pay full price and get a warranty. Lesson learned.
