Troy-Bilt 2550 20293 pressure washer not producing pressure. Worked when last used 2 months ago. Pump pistons are moving up and down when engine is pulled through. Inlet water is flowing through pump but no pressure when engine is started. I have the same problem. Water flows thru the pump when not running, but no flow or goes in by-pass mode when I start the pump. The pump being Troy Bilt Model 020296-01. I replaced unloader valve even. Anything else I can do?

Troy Built pressure washer starts up fine and idles nice. Start spraying and everything is fine for about 30sec to 1min then the engine just shuts off.

I have the pump off the machine, what should I do? Model number 020208 Troy Built. Rev # 01

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
