Question about Garden
I have inherited this petrol washer but have very low power water constantly comes out of what I think must be a pressure release valve on top of the pump even when the engine is not running. when you start the engine it is like a giant fountain surely this is not right
you are going to need a pump seal kit or they may call it a rebuild kit but this sort of thing happens often and you should not have any trouble getting the parts you need with the kit should come a exploded view diagram but request one just to make sure be careful when putting it back together if gyou damage any of the brass or neoprene parts you will be putting it together for nothing lay out your parts on a clean towel keep all dirt and grime away and clean your pump housing really good before you put the new parts in and i mean clean enough to eat off of if you do all of these things your rebuild will probably last longer the the original good luck and get back with me if you need help with the rebuild

This may not be a motor problem. It sounds like your pump is not working properly and the motor is just following the pump. First thing to do is check for leaks in the pump, wand hose, gun etc. It may also be a blown water seal inside the pump.

Sounds like the valve in the handle is sticking closed. May have a broken spring, or maybe a part is stuck..
I say take it apart, and the answer will present itself.. Play with it with nozzle out too... Maybe something is stuck after storing so long and will loosen up.. Fingers crossed
