CLEAN FRESH WATER IS IMPORTANT FOR THESE PUMPS, I ALWAYS USE A HIT OF ARMOR ALL IN THE PUMP AFTER USE . YOU MIGHT SEE IF IT'S GETTING POWER TO THE MOTOR MIGHT HAVE A BAD GFIC ? PLUG IT IN PICK UP THE UNIT AND TRY DROPPING IT FROM A FOOT OFF THE GROUND, THIS JAR MIGHT SHOCK IT BACK TO LIFE ?

A clogged carburetor is most commonly caused by leaving fuel in the pressure washer for a long period of time. ... This sticky fuel can clog up the carburetor and cause the engine to run stall. If the carburetor is clogged, try cleaning it with carburetor cleaner.

A modern hot water pressure washer can have complex circuitry and it is a good idea to read the user instructions and have a diagram for reference when troubleshooting - certainly some dismantling will be necessary to trace the power rather further inside than the power cord.

If the unit hasn't been used for a time the pump could have frozen and have overloaded the motor when switched on - there is often a facility for the pump to be turned by hand to unfreeze the pump before switching on.
