Question about Garden
I take it this is an electric powered machine.
If using these pressure washers with an extension lead for the electric supply it can cause a multitude of problems. voltage drops to motor etc, which increases current and overheats the motor.
I am not familiar with this model I work with industrial pressure washers. If the type of motor is a universal motor with brushes, similar to a vacuum cleaner, then I think the motor will be toast.
if it is a squirrel cage induction motor with capacitor, then the capacitor usually fails first. this is a cylinder with either wires coming out of it or push on spade connectors for the wires.
I have meters to test these but you can usually see that the cylinder is bulging , blown the cap off or pushed out a trail of grey stuff.
hope this helps.
