SOURCE: north star petrol pressure washer.

Sounds like the regulator is sticking or is airbound. loosen the water connection and then tighten it back. Could also be that the trigger gun is faulty or needs adjustment. Hope this helped

Sounds like a coil.Run till it shuts off, then check for spark.If there is no spark you will need a coil.

SOURCE: Pressure Washer quit running

I have owned four of those units. Every one of them did what you are experiencing or just wouldn't give me any pressure after only a few uses. The company was certainly no help. I gave up after four and bought a heavier gas model from Lowes. Hope this info helps.

SOURCE: Pressure Washer Pump and Engine Stops Suddenly

The pump might be binding against the motor, causing the pump to overheat and temporarilly "seize up" and shut the engine off.
After cooling down for a brief period (5~10 mins) the engine can usually be re-started, but the overheating problem will keep coming back.

This happens when the pump either wasn't seated against the engine properly during it's initial instalation, or the pump housing wasn't machined properly and the PTO shaft is trying to drive the pump at a slight angle = excessive friction = overheating.

Try this:
1) Loosen the bolts that mount the pump to the engine just enough so that the pump can be wiggled slightly.
2) With the engine power switch in the "OFF" position, slowly pull the recoil starter rope so that the engine / pump completes about two revolutions. This helps to align the pump surface with the engine.
3) Lightly snug the pump mounting bolts in a criss-cross pattern, then slowly pull the recoil starter rope again to ensure that the pump isn't binding.
4) Finish tightening the pump mounting bolts in the criss-cross pattern (approx. 21 foot pounds torque).

The entire process should take you roughly about 10 mins from start to finish.

If this doesn't remedy your problem, then try running the engine for 20 mins with the pump COMPLETELY removed so as to isolate the components.

SOURCE: Hello there.My Karcher pressure washer motor

The valve that admits more water to be compressed is stuck. It is likely the O-Rings on it need replacing. No water to the pump, no pressure!

The motor will stop when pressure is up to the designed pressure.

    Power washer 12poe-170 takes 5 minutes to build up max pressure


    not a new gun but the nozzle removed and cleaned out. Pressure units work through a regulator that is controlled by the flow through the nozzle. If there is insufficient flow the regulator unloads the pump. It the flow is too low the regulator opens and closes as the pressure fluctuates. removing the blockage allows full flow and full operation of the regulator.

    Do not know how to work power washer


    Dear Carrie688,
    I cannot for sure understand your problem. You say, you do not know how to WORK power washer. Does WORK mean FIX...or USE???? I will assume that you wish to know how to use it.
    First without water connected and without gun connected...switch on the machine. If it turns, then this means the electric motor is OK. Now connect the hose and gun. Connect water supply. Now always start the machine with gun open. This will help to remove air from system. When pressure builts up, close gun, and machine must stop instantly. If machine does not stop, open the gun again and switch off the machine. If the machine continues working when the the gun is closed, this will result in a lot of damage. I do not know what model you have, because also there are old models that when gun is closed, the machine keeps running. I assume your model is recent. So the machine will stop when gun is closed. Now when finished, switch off machine and electricity. And most important release pressure from gun. Do not store machine with pressure still in it. This will damage machine and it is not safe.
    Now if you have detergent, this can only work on low pressure. There are bigger machines that detergent works on high pressure. But the normal system is that detergent works on low pressure. Also before storing, pass fresh water to remove all detergent from pump of machine. Never store a machine with detergent in its system.
    Regards,
    Fulltech.
