Question about Craftsman Garden

Open Question

Sears Craftsman Model 580.752182 Pressure washer engine stops running after about 5 minutes. I can restart it - but it is difficult - then it doesn't stay running. Worked for over an 1 hour the first day I used it. Now it will not run for more than a couple of minutes.

SOURCE: won't run with air filter on

I have a fairly new pressure washer with the same problem and discovered that because it was temporarily stored on its back (rather than upright), oil seeped into the air filter housing. If you look at the air filter it may not look like it has oil on it - especially if the oil is new. Mine runs fine without the air filter, but as soon as I put it in, it does the same as yours. I came across this site since I am looking to order a new filter. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: pressure washer wont run unless choke is on

I have a Karcher pressure washer w/ a 5hp Honda engine. It only will run while the choke is pulled out and only runs at about half the rpm's. When the choke is pushed in.. it coughs, sputters and shuts off. Can you tell me how to fix this....

SOURCE: craftsman model 580.752020 electric pressure

turn off water and machine electrics.

remove high pressure hose from front of machine, this may be tight if there is still pressure in the system.
turn on water, when water comes out of machine hose outlet turn on machine. does the machine turn on and water flow increase, if so you probably have a blocked lance jet or trigger.

remove lance extension if fitted and fit hose back to machine, try again. If its ok then this proves you have a blocked lance jet, maybea poke about with some stiff wire will free the obstruction.

If this doesnt bring on the machine you probably have a jammed pressure switch on the pump.

this pressure switch turns on the pump when the trigger is pulled and switches the motor off when the trigger is released.

hope this helps.

SOURCE: Craftsman Pressure washer will not spray

your not missing anything, check the pump, they tend to go bad over time and may need replacing. The pump provides the pressure as well as the suction for the whole process, pulling water from the hose or tank and pushing it forcefully through the pressure washer line. If the motor is running and you have the water going through the line and to the pump, and no water is coming out, my guess would be the pump.

SOURCE: John Deere 3300 PSi pressure washer shutting off

I have the John Deere 3300 PSI washer. The unit has the John Deere name but was assembled by Briggs and Stratton and has a Briggs and Stratton engine. I also experienced the engine shut off after the unit ran several minutes. I also found the gas cap was not letting the gas tank vent. I loosened the cap and the engine runs fine.

I don't like leaving the gas cap loose. I am wondering if it might be practical to drill a small vent hole (1/8 inch) in the center of the cap?

Common carb problem, sometimes the fuel hoses need replacement. Clean carb with carb cleaner. Be sure to remember where all parts go. Get a repair kit, very cheap, clean out all ports with brass or steel bristle or something small. Put back on engine if still has problems replace carb it could be worn out

Craftsman Electric Pressure Washer 1800 psi. Start then runs for a minute then stops.


The motor overload / thermal protection is likely the cause. Check your hose and wand / nozzle for restrictions. Is this the same hose and wand that it shipped with, or is it from another machine?

Your local Sears store can get you a user manual and diagram for our pressure washer for further troubleshooting.

Craftsman pressure washer constantly fluctuates and then stops


sounds like fuel problem. Either water\trash at bottom of tank, or most likely, carb needs to be disassembled and bowl and jets sprayed out w\carb cleaner.my money is on the latter.
