My PowerBoss 3000 with a Honda GC 190 engine will be working

Customer Question

Hi Pearl- My PowerBoss 3000 with a Honda GC 190 engine will be working fine during operation, then when I release the pressure handle trigger, the engine will stop instead of just idling . It starts right back up each time though.Any idea what might cause this?
JA: I'll do all I can to help. Is there anything else important you think the Small Engine Technician should know?

The pump unloader valve is not unloading, and is killing the engine. Locate the unloader in the parts breakdown of the pump and remove it and free it up.
