Sounds like the governor is stuck. My pressure washer speeds up when it has to pump. Don't know if yours uses vacuum to trigger governor or direct linkage. Good Luck.

I have a 5HP Honda engine installed on a Excell pressure washer. While the engine readily starts, it will not continue to run unless I keep the choke setting nearly completely closed.

... Briggs & Stratton Briggs Stratton 2550 Psigaspressure Washer

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.

Our AEG Favorit 50620 dishwasher won't start. When I push the power button, the power light comes on, but none of the other lights. Pushing the function buttons has no effect. The door is fully closed, and it was working perfectly before. I have tried turning it off and on, unplugging it etc. Nothing works. Interestingly, if you push more than one function button at the same time, some of the function lights come on, but then when you try to start the cycle it still won't work. Help!

When I switch my karcher k4.97 washer on it just sits and pulsates(on off on off etc.)When I squeeze the trigger it runs perfect,Then when I release the trigger it reverts back to pulsating.It leaks water when sitting idle.

I have a 6th sense dishwasher purchased new October 2004. It has been working properly and then has just stopped the next time I tried to use it - it will not turn on no matter what buttons I push - no response. I have checked the power out let with another appliance and that works so it is not the power supply from the power point. I can only think it must be a fuse or the controller. Can you please advise best course of action? Thanks Helen
