SOURCE: pressure washer leaks
I had a Karcher water sprayer that did the same thing , the repair man told me it could be repaired IF he could get parts , guess what, he COULDNT get parts so i had to buy another one , the answer to your question is yes they can be fixed provided you take it somewhere that can get parts . hope this helps
ps i could have fixed it myself with the right part, its not a hard job to strip it and rebuild it

Hi Brian. Welcome to FixYa I am Kelly. This sounds as if the bypass / unloader valve is stuck in place and the pump id dead heading causing the unit to shut off. (There is most likely some corrosion in the unloader / bypassy valve assy / housing. What you can try is pouring at least 3 oz of oil into the water inlet assy and briefly.... like VERY briefly switch the unit on then back off. Then let it sit over night. The next day connect everything for normal use then turn the unit on again briefly. Use a bucket to PURGE the oil that you put through the system by squeezing the wand Power SW Off until the oil purges. Then switch the unit on and rapidly trip the trigger at 0.5 sec intervals or less. If it trips off wait 5 mins and try it again. Do the rapidly tripping the trigger on the wand routine for about 20 seconds. Your forcing the bypass unloader valve to cycle trying to clear out any debris / corrosion.
This works often and well. There are exceptions. Hopefully it will work for you.
Thanks for using FixYa.
