Question about Garden
This is a Karcher #411a, right? Just wanted to make sure about the manufacturer.
From the symptoms that you are describing, your motor is cycling on the thermal overload protector. For some reason, the protector is heating up, tripping (opening the circuit to the motor), and when it cools down, allows you to use the pressure washer a little bit longer.
Given the fact that most of the pressure washers are stored outside in a shed or in garage, consider disassembling your washer. You are looking for nests made by insects (be careful!), as well as to locate the overload protector.
If your water pump is detriorating (losing oil perhaps), it may be putting a higher load on the motor, causing it to heat up abnormally.
I wasn't able to find your exact model #, perhaps there is a product # on the name tag as well. This site has a listing of all the Karcher part and assembly manuals.
