Question about Electric Garden
common for not starting unless trigger engaged as you are turning the pump as well as engine creating pressure,as for stalling pump has unloader valve which is probably in need of grease(use good silicone grease)this allows water to ciculate when trigger released.

Sounds like the pressure valve is broken thats why you cant depress the trigger , the valve is on the pump , i would suggest taking it to a repair shop as they are fiddly things to fix

spill valve is stuck and needs to be cleaned and greased common problem....also check all connections for blockage in line

When the trigger is released, pressure builds up and this acts on a valve (spill valve or pressure control valve). When this pressure is big enough it will push the spill valve out and closes a micro switch. Now this Spill Valve gets stuck sometimes, mainly due to soap and chemicals...so the micro switch is not closed...so the machine contiues running. If this is left likee this it will cause damage to the valves. So all one has to do is service the spill valve or as I usually do I replace it. There are cases were the micro switch is damaged also..and needs to be replaced. To see the spill valve and micro switch you must open the cover. The spill valve is located where you see a cover with an electric wire coming out of it. If the micro switch is good...you must tackle the Spill valve.

Testimonial: "Makes sense!"
The unloader/bypass valve is jamming or defective. When you are not pressing the button the water is directed through the unloader valve/check valve to recirculate.It is common for them to corrode or for the spring to break.If it has an adjustment screw on the unloading valve for unloading pressure make sure you count the turns before disassembling it to make sure you dont over pressurize it.It is not opening causing the engine to choke out.Please let me know if this helps
