Any motor will shut down or could be damaged if the load is too great.

Make sure there are no blockages in the line.
Unless you are comfortable checking the pressure you should have it professionally
set abd verified that it is not putting a strain on the pumo.

If you adjust it but the pump is still in a strain the motor will wear out/ or become damaged in a short period of time.
