Motor stalls under load

I have a 4hp north star pressure washer, used a few times. it starts and idles fine, as soon as a load is put on the washer the motor stalls out. is the pump seized from lack of use? i pulled the pump off and there were some minor calcium deposits in the pump.

SOURCE: wont start

tip a cap full of fuel in top of the carb to start intitially, check for spark as common fault is on/off switch, If no spark, link the 2 wires on on/off switch together.

SOURCE: builds up to much pressure in hose and stalls engine

Sounds like the unloader is not working. try replacing it and see if that helps.

This may not be a motor problem. It sounds like your pump is not working properly and the motor is just following the pump. First thing to do is check for leaks in the pump, wand hose, gun etc. It may also be a blown water seal inside the pump.

You need to start the unit and let it run for few minutes to get worm, make sure the water is fully open and the unit is fully cleaned. Push on the trigger on and off for few times not letting the unit shutdown, then start increasing the fuel mixture ¼ turn and push on the trigger again and see…this could be that the unit need service or the governor springs getting week if you got one on your unit…let me know how that work for you and please do not forget to rate my service so we can improve on it with your help. God bless

SOURCE: EXCELL VR2500 power washer runs and then stops

I had the very same problem and nobody could help me until I was talking with a co-worker. Its a very easy fix. I couldn't believe it. I did this yesterday and it ran like a charm. You can either replace the head gasket or just by a good sealer to use on your existing gasket or replace it. I use Indian head gasket sealer on mine. The bolts on the bottom were lose causing a loss of compression. If you need more info you can email me (for free) and I will tell you exactly how to do it. Agr8flson@aol.com

I have a north star pressure washer model 2SFX20ES3 and the pump is not working. The engine is working good. I pull the trigger and no pressure.


Hi
Sometimes you may have to allow a little time for the pump to prime itself and remove the air trapped inside. With the pressure washer at idle and the pressure hose fully extended, squeeze the trigger and see if you get pressure in a couple of minutes.

If you get no joy from that, your pump has likely checked out on you.

Hope this helps.

When start high idle put foot on break to put in gear then stalls


Doubt it's the O2 sensor.More likely an issue with your IAC(Idle Air Control) motor.Quite often they get plugged up with carbon and stick in position.

I have a roll air compresor its the weelbarrow type gas powerd wen i start it it fills up then it shuts off it will start again wen tanks are empty and the prosses has to be repited over an over


The pilot valve controls the pressure, idles the engine when set pressure is obtained and releases compressed air thru small vent while the engine is idling. If the idle is set too low, the engine may stall. Try increasing idle speed and make sure that when set pressure is reached that air is venting from pilot muffler vent. The pilot valve can be easily tested. With engine off and pressure in tank, flip the pilot valve start lever up then down. When flipped up, the throttle control shuld activate idle and the pull rope should be easy to pull. With lever down, throttle is pulled on engine and compressor is loaded making the rope very difficult to pull. If the engine stalls with air in the tank flip lever up to easily start engine then down to pump. Good holidays
