SOURCE: when spray starts engine stops
sounds like unit is drawing air into system or has a low water supply ,you will need to check the litres per minute supply to m/c,also could be grit stcking a valve or worn piston seals (common on m/cs that **** the water rather than being fed from mains supply) hope this helps, this is also very common to cat pumps

One thing I have found about pressure washers...you need to run water through the hose and everything until you get all the air out...or they will bog down and such until the air is out.

SOURCE: Engine wont stay running
It is a diaphram carb. Doe's the primer **** straight gas or does it have air bubbles in it? If it has bubbles in it then it is a leak in the fuel line.
If not then Unhook the intake fuel line and pump the bulb until all of the gas is out of it. Then pour the gas out of the tank and rinse it out with new gas. Pour in new gas and it should be ok.

SOURCE: engine runs great, when i
Make sure thre is no air lock in the system line. So first of all use a clean line to wash off and blow out any dirt in the spray gun.
make sure the engine is having good fuel and power it on to run and warm up . let it run over without any load on it . Now turn the hose on it and power it on slowing, do not stop but keep it running to power spray . The accumulated dirt might come off and make the run smooth after some time.

I think the bypass / unloader valve is sticking open but it can be a shuttle piston in the body. Since you did not include a model number I can not pass you a diagram of where the items are located that you need to clean up.
Something you can try in the mean time is to tip the unit up to where the water supply connection is vertical and add some engine oil to the water inlet until you can not add more oil and then connect the water supply BEFORE you move it to the horizontal position. Turn on the water and start the unit knowing that your going to be spraying oil (Use a bucket and spray it on the side so it does not make a huge mess.) As soon as possible after starting the unit fan the trigger on and off rapidly. I am talking about parts of a second here. You trying to force springs and plungers to move and be lubricated. You may have to do this 2 or 3 times before it starts responding.
If this does not work you will end up taking the unit apart, cleaning up springs, housings and seals. After that you will use lots of White Grease (to excess) to lubricate components. Try to only remove one item at a time for cleaning and lubrication.
If you respond with a model number I will look up your pump and provide you with a diagram of just what you need to clean and lubricate. Most of the time cleaning and lubrication is all that is required.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
