I have a craftsman pressure washer. it sat for a year but it did start and it ran fine. then my sister borrowed it and it started but while it was running she tipped it to move it to another location and it just stopped. i've checked all fluid levels, gas, etc. and are ok . i can't start it. is there a safety breaker/fuse that automatically shuts it down and has to be reset?

The pressure washer walked (vibration) about 6 feet from where I started using it and fell down a step, landing on its side. It took me a few seconds to get to it and was belching black smoke when I shut it off. Now, when I pull on the rope it only moves a few inches and no further.

I have a Honda GC160 5 horsepower power washer with 2400 psi. When its cold it is easy to start but after it has been running for a while the only way to start it is to have the water shooting out of the wand. Once it is hot and running if i stop the stream of water (release the trigger on the wand) then the machine shuts off. It seems like the only way to keep it running is to constantly have water running through the wand. Please help

My pressure washer starts fine, shoots water OK. After running for 5-10 minutes cleaning siding I shut off machine. I go to start it again within a minute or two and the thing feels like it's just about seized. If i wait until the motor is completely cool, it will pull start freely and start right up. I think something is wrong with the pump, not the engine.

Pressure washer has been sitting up for about 2 years.. worked perfectly before I parked it.. lol.. But, I put a new spark plug on, cleaned the filter, sprayed carb cleaner in it drained the gas tank and added new gas.. But it still does the same thing.. It starts in the choke position, runs awhile, and then shuts off. While its running, I tried to put the switch in the run position and it kills. Just wanted to see what an expert would say about the matter before I Brake it down. thanks

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. Is the capasitator on the electric motor the probable cause and is there a way to check out the capasitator to see if it is malfuncti


I doubt that it has anything to do with the capacitor on the motor. i think you are having a problem with the actual Motor Drive circuitry. What is happening is when you close the switch, this tells the Motor to "Ramp Up" to pump the water out, what ... Craftsman Pressure Washers

Started by Craftsman 2700 PSI , 2.3 GPM Briggs & Stratton Powered Pressure Washer for first time in 9 months. Added new oil, and gas. started but is smoking from muffler and is dripping what appears to be oil near the exhaust end. I shut it down. What could this be due to?


The first thing I would check would be the oil level, to make sure you didn't put in too much oil. If the oil level is correct, it could be a stuck piston ring, letting oil blow by the piston, and out the exhaust. If this is the case, you are going ...
