Question about Black & Decker 1700 PSI Electric Pressure Washer

Open Question

Pressure washer runs for 15 minutes then shut off. Overheat?

I have a B&D pressure washer model PW1600 that runs fine for about 15 minutes then shut itself off. 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 be wrong and how can I fix it? Thanks.

check the unloader valve (pressure relief valve) probably need to replace the o-ring. it should be on the side of the pump and have a large spring. just unscrew and replace.

What is this problem - Karcher 3.86 electric pressure washer: humming noise, plug gets very hot, then unit shuts down?


Your pressure washer is either not fitted with a run/stop device in which case like mine you have to switch off within a few seconds of closing the trigger. Check your model features?
The humming noise is the motor stalled out against the pump because there is nowhere for the water to go. The shutoff is caused by the safety overload switching off after overheat.
Or, it has a pressure operated run/stop which is not working. Because water and electricity don't mix, I would suggest getting more specific help. You can download Karcher manuals /spares lists online from Karcher specialists but remember electricity is the silent killer.

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.

Pressure washer shuts off overheating


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.

John Deere 3000psi pressure washer stalling


Mine is having the same issue...I googled and found this with no answers. I'll update if I can find a cure on my own...
Have you checked your oil level?? Small engines have a cut-off switch if your oil is low...mine is topped off so this is not the solution for me..but it could possibly for you.

John Deere will replace the cap for free; they acknowledge the vendor who supplied Briggs & Stratton gas caps provided faulty caps. Call 1-888-228-3068 then 1 (English), 2, 1 and a technician will ask you for model number and Serial Number (which they need to replace the cap). Don't drill a hole in your cap: debris will find a way into the gas tank and end up possibly fouling the engine. Bob from NJ
