If you are using an extension cord this will happen. If using an extension cord make sure it is a 12ga.If you are not using an extension cord then it could be a bad motor or low voltage from the source.

Why is my powerstroke pressure washer overheating and stopping?


From what i understand ,you might have a bad armature
Armature partly dammed it can work for a while then will
stop when it overheat ,
Check if you have a high spark around armature , red spark
then check brushes , if brushes is good but the spring is damaged
that mean you have an overheating problem and you need to replace your armature , I hope this will help you solve your
problem ,, let me know if you need any further assistance.

Pressure washer runs for 15 minutes then shut itself off. Overheating? I have to let it cool for 30 minutes before it can be used again, may be for 10 minutes before shutting down again. What can b


Not enough water VOLUME and pressure to supply the pump with a steady flow of water. Water is cavatating (adding air to the water) and the piston is heating up and jambing. Try using a larger size hose diameter and a shorter hose to supply the pump.

Electric fuel pump stops working and after 15 or 20 min. starts working again ?


fuel pump is overheating. it takes the 15 to 20 min. to cool down. Low fuel in tank? in tank fuel pumps use the fuel to keep them cool. what is fuel pressure at the rail? if fuel pressure is too low the pump may be working too hard and overheating. need to test for a bad fuel pump or clogged fuel filter or possibly an obstruction in the fuel delivery system.

Onan generator dies after 2-3 hours of running , wiil not restart rigt away wait 10 minutes starts no problem then runs for 15 minutes shuts down and keeps reapeating on 15 off 10


This sounds like overheating. These small generators don't have overheating protection, but if a low oil pressure or low oil level is present it may be the reason for stopping.

Check the oil level in the starting conditions and again when it stops. It may become under the "stop" level and after some time the precipitated oil has reached the "start" level. The same may be with oil viscosity and oil pressure.

Try to add some oil or change the oil with bigger viscosity.

Northstar PW shuts off hot if washer is moved. Honda engine


Being petrol driven, it may have a mercury kill switch which puts a ground on the ignition circuit stopping the engine if you move it. Perhaps for safety in case you overturn the unit somehow.

Craftsman pressure washer constantly fluctuates and then stops

these small power washers are tricky. Keep working with it. It may just be waiting for u to squeeze the trigger to activate. Make sure you have the water connected and turned on.
