The unloader valve is likely stuck. The unloader kit is part #B3479GS . I added a image below that may help. If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Call Sears at 1-800-4MY-HOME or 1-800-469-4663.

A:

Thanks for your question. Adding the model number would help me in identifying what type of pump it has. Without the model number I will only be able to provide instructions. Generally speaking the most likely failure causing the engine to stall is a stuck "un-loader valve". It's always best to use a "Pump saver" in the pump when it's not used for a long period of time to prevent the calcium and minerals from causing the un-loader valve to stick. Pump saver can be found at most Sears stores.

Your users/operators manual should have a parts breakdown and information on the un-loader valve. You will likely have to remove and replace the un-loader valve. The un-loader can be removed by turning it counterclockwise (CCW). Your manual should also provide the part number. Replace the un-loader valve and it will likely operate normally again.

Q:

Craftsman Electric Pressure Washer will not pressurize the incoming water flow?

A:

There might some kind of error with the model number provided since that appears in our system and at Sears PartsDirect as a gas-powered washer with a 5 hp Honda engine, model GC160QHA.

If it is an electrical unit it might be kicking off due to poor water supply. That might be too low or high of water pressure or temperature coming in or a plugged inlet screen to the unit. Or, it might be a stuck check valve or other issue inside the pump itself causing an over-pressuring or starvation issue. Or, if it an electrical motor, it might just be a problem with too much amperage draw due to too much load, improper electrical supply, or a failing electrical motor.

If you confirm your model number you may be able to use it to find your Owner's Manual online, which should have more details on basic troubleshooting to help you pin-point an issue with improper water or power supply. You can also use the number to find available parts and get an idea of how the components fit together by checking the parts information at the Sears PartsDirect site. Or, feel free to submit another question here with a little more detail and we will do our best to help further.

Considering the high pressure and multiple parts involved in a pressure pump, you may also want to consider having a professional inspect and repair the unit to be sure the unit is safe and reliable to use again.
