Having problems with your Pressure Washers ?

Stalls when triger released

\015 I have a karcher 2400 gas pressure washer had not been used for months. Runs fine but stalls the motor when the trigger is released. Also I need to release pressure to re start. Works only if I hold the trigger continually while using. Is there a pressure release valve that may be stuck?. \015\012\015\012Thanks \015\012\015\012Mark\015

Pressure Washer I have a Porter Cable pressure model no.PCH2401.It works fine for 5 minutes,then I can hear the motor loading down and then it stalls out. I tried to start it and it was very hard to pull on. disconnected the water supply and if was very easy to pull and started right up. I noticed the pump was very hot.This unit has a thermal relief valve on it,shouldn't it have released when it gets to a certain temperature .I was thinking maybe this is why it might be shutting the motor

I really appreciate the help and the information I have read so far. My Karcher K2400HH runs like heck until you release the trigger. Then, if I take the quick-connect nozzle off, pull the trigger and shoot a stream of water, I can then put the nozzle back on and it runs like heck again UNTIL I release the trigger. Then, it is the same process each time I release the trigger. Kind of frustrating.

The engine starts cold after 2 or three pulls, runs ok initially, but seems to have slightly less power. After a few minutes I can turn off the choke. When teh engine warms up and runs for about 15 minutes, there is a definite power decrease and the motor sounds like it will stall. If I paly with the choke, it does not stall, but has little power to pump water. If the engine does stall or it is turned off, it will not restart until it cools down.


I would first try draining the carb bowl, if you look at where the choke lever is and look below that you should see a clear red tube with a flat head screw below that, if you just turn the screw out the carb will drain. If you still have an issue yo ... Karcher G3025OH Pressure Washer
