Re: Electric or Gas?
Pressure washers are either electric or gasoline powered. Electric pressure washers are low maintenance and quiet. These generally are for light duty. They are handy where you need to work on small confined area, however you need to run power to them and have a pressurized water source. Also the National Electrical Code and Underwriters Laboratories now require ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) be use when operating an electric pressure washer.
Gas models are recommended for tasks that require more power, such as paint prep, heavy vehicle cleaning, or cleaning heavily soiled concrete.. Gas models start with PSI of 1750 and go as high as 4000. They also offer more portability, as they are not limited by electric cords. Also some gas models can draw water from a source other than the garden hose, which allows you to work away from a water line. All gas models have 4-cycle engines and run on regular unleaded gas.

If it is a gas powered machine and it cuts out when you release the spray gun trigger, it means that your unloader valve is stuck closed.
It would help to have more information about your machine and your problem. Gas or electric? Does it start up and run fine or cut out a few seconds after starting? Does it cut out when you release the trigger?
Does it cut out while spraying?
Is it gas or electric? Gas: Could be the carburetor float is stuck. Try beating on it. (#28 in the picture) DO NOT TAKE APART CARBURETOR! If that doesn't help might be something else. Electric: Was it left out in the cold in the winter with water still in it?
