Could be that the motor is low on oil, if the Honda engine runs low on oil it will shut down after running for a couple minutes. I would check that first. If you still have a problem next time before it shuts down take the gas cap off, it is possible that your gas cap is bad and is causing a vapor lock in the tank. Anything other then these items will indicate that something is wrong with the carb.

What is causing, to lose 3piont hitch and PTO during operations, can shut down wait a few minutes. Start it back up and they work again ,for a little while Working on an old 1020 John deere


Could be a internal leak in pump causing it to lose pressure, when you shut it off you allow it to build up pressure again. There has to be a way to have it pressure tested. Good starting point for a diagnosis. Hope this will help you good luck

John deere lt155 lawn tractor shuts off when it gets hot while mowing, could this be electrical?


I had a similar problem lasy year.
Try this:
As soon as the machine seems to be stalling, loosen the gas cap.
If the engine continues to run, clean the gas cap vent hole(s).

Engine will not run but a few minutes at a time


Check your spark plugs, see if they are failing, if they are then your motor is getting to hot. meaning that you either have the fuel mixture set to high or the setting on the spark plugs are not correct causing you to burn hot.

John Deere 3000psi pressure washer stalling


Mine is having the same issue...I googled and found this with no answers. I'll update if I can find a cure on my own...
Have you checked your oil level?? Small engines have a cut-off switch if your oil is low...mine is topped off so this is not the solution for me..but it could possibly for you.

John Deere 3300 PSi pressure washer shutting off while in use.Everything appears fine Oil level,Gal level,Air cleaner ok etc.. May run 2 minutes or 12 minutes then spudders a bit then Bang "Off" as if i...


John Deere will replace the cap for free; they acknowledge the vendor who supplied Briggs & Stratton gas caps provided faulty caps. Call 1-888-228-3068 then 1 (English), 2, 1 and a technician will ask you for model number and Serial Number (which they need to replace the cap). Don't drill a hole in your cap: debris will find a way into the gas tank and end up possibly fouling the engine. Bob from NJ

If it has a clutch, that would be the problem. An electric clutch will kick on and off when it is hot if it is bad.

My pressure washer works 4 a while then starts to sputter & dies?


I am going to suggest a tune of of the engine. Change the oil and oil filter. Check the air filter is clean and replace it if it isn't. A new spark plug.

It sounds like your intake is plugged with debris. What usually happens is a water hose that has been laying around will get various stuff in it -- dirt, grass clippings, small insects (and whatever they take into it nest building). These days most homeowner pressure washers do not have a proper inlet filter, but just a screened hose washer like on a washing machine. The unloader valve can cause pressure variance, but usually not in the manner that you described. The pump is being "starved" for input water. Just use a pair of needle-nose pliers and pull out the screen and clean it or replace it.
