Having problems with your Honda Pressure Washer PSI 3000 ?

My pressure washer starts fine but after you run

\015 My honda gx390 pressure washer starts fine but after you run the pressure water for a couple of seconds it dies and has a lot of compression. Also will not start with the air filter on but I think its too old and dirty. I think the thing that throttles the carb when you spray is broken, you have to do it manually. Do you think thats part of the problem? I dont have money to take it in but i need it for work. Please help your advice is greatly appreciated.\015

I have a Craftsman power washer model 580 752020. When I start it up, turn on the switch the electric motor runs fine until I either close the trigger to the spray nozzle or press the trigger for power spray. The electric motor just shuts down, if I take my finger off the pressure and let the water run with no presssure the motor runs fine. My question is this.

It sounds like some of the "unloader valve" problems are similar but I do not see an "unloader valve" in the parts lists for the 2701...
