Hi , i'm not familiar with the machine so without model numbers it is hard to diagnose.
if it is a trapped pressure unloader valve, ie the motor turns off when you let go of the trigger , then it is possible for it to be a pressure switch causing problems. the pressure switch may turn it off immediately you let go of the trigger or it may have a delay stop on it, where it will turn it off after a predetermined time interval. it is quite common for springs to break or microswitches to fail in these switches.

SOURCE: My 1750 psi campbell hausfeld pressure washer will

Common with that washer...it has a wabble pump. Release the trigger, if by pass does not engage, stalls engine. You can however keep using it, all you have to do is keep trigger pressed, and when you are cranking engine, depress trigger with the free hand. Can be repaired, but the fix probably will cost more than a new pump.

Motor quits when pull trigger


It's the spark plug more than likely. If engine turns but won't stay running its more than likely spark plug. If that doesn't fix its the gas. Empty gas out get some fresh gas.

My 1750 psi campbell hausfeld pressure washer will operate at first until I release the trigger on the wand. Then it won't restart. If I wait for a while it will run again. Sounds like the pressure switch.

You can however keep using it, all you have to do is keep trigger pressed, and when you are cranking engine, depress trigger with the free hand.

Gas engine will not start without pulling trigger on wand to relieve pressure-engine dies when letting off trigger


I am afraid that is how they work even electric ones wont start unless you squeeze the trigger ,once they are running you should be ablr to release the trigger , and then squeeze it again whilst running . if yours dies when you release the trgger while motor is running -----good chance you are working at too high pressure. but to start you have to release all the internal pressure
