squeeze the trigger a second later I get the same thing and so on. Is it just the idle that needs to be adjusted or something else?

How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?

We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :

The engine of your pressure washer may rev sporadically because it is experiencing an intermittent blockage of the air that it needs to function properly. The first thing that you should do is to check the air filter for clogs caused by debris or dirt. Clean out any clogs that you find and the erratic revving may stop.
Pressure may decrease if your packing is worn out or if there are abrasives or severe cavitation (bubbles) in the pumped fluids. This can be caused by an inadequate amount of water and/or a lack of proper filtration. To fix, install the proper filter.
There could be small leaks, holes, or tears in your garden hose or high-pressure hose that are causing your pressure washer to lose pressure when you pull the trigger. If you find leaks, plug the holes or replace the hose, which should solve your pressure issues.
Surging Pressure Washer Troubleshooting Tips

Check that the water supply and inlet screen are unrestricted. Check to see if the water supply does meet the necessary flow rate. If not, discontinue using the pump, because it will suck air, causing cavitation that can damage the pump`s parts.

How Do I Tell If My Unloader Valve is Bad? In most occurrences, the first symptom of an unloader valve going bad is no pressure from the wand when the trigger is pressed. This happens when the unloader valve gets stuck open and does not allow water to enter the hose and trigger.
A Clog or Blockage

If you`re having poor or inconsistent water pressure is the same area of your home, every time, it could be a blockage or clog in that particular fixture or area of the water line. One thing to check would be the aerators on the faucets in your home as they can sometimes clog up after a while.

DON`T Let the Machine Run Too Long Without Pulling the Trigger. Pressure washers operate under pressure, and that pressure needs to be released by pulling the trigger. If you let the machine run for two minutes or longer without spraying water, then you could damage the pump.
For this reason you should not let your pressure washer idle, not spraying water for more than a few minutes. Without cooling the pump head the temperature will begin to climb to 200+ degrees. When it gets that hot, water seals and o-rings soften and wear quickly. Valves can be distorted and warp.

Motor seems to be locked up!!!!!!!!
ANSWER : It may be your engine, but it may also be the water pressure. Try this: Hold the trigger down while pulling the recoil starter. This acts as an unloader for the pressure washer, and may allow the engine to turn over. There is also an oil level in the pump as well as the engine. Check both levels.
Just a thought, but I’ve been there. Best regards, W/D
