Engine dies after pressure builds

\015 Pacific hydrostar 65078 - new, used once. engine starts fine but as soon as pressure starts to build in pump (when I pull trigger in wand), it kills the engine. after this it will not restart and i feel a lot of resistance in the pull cord. If I relieve pressure and unhook the hose, it will pull easy but still won't restart until it cools down.\015

Engine dies after pressure builds


... Pressure Washers

I have a Briggs & Stratton gas power washer. This is the 1st time this year that I have used it. I put in fresh gas, hooked up the water supply. The engine started and then quickly stopped. I had to release the water pressure in the hose before I could pull start the engine. The only way to keep the engine running is to hold down the spray nozzle trigger. Once that is released the pressure in the hose builds up and the engine stops.
