I have a Kobalt KLA1583009 Bought used for cheap.

Tank is empty, runs for a couple seconds then stops and repeats this cycle. I have the shroud off. I can hear a clicking coming from a below the board.

Looking at some of your other solutions I will be checking the starting cap. Any other possible solutions/
Thank you

Update!
by: Greg

So pulled the motor/pump assembly found that one of the wires going to a 30amp fuse was rubbing in the motor and created a short.

Repaired that and it still performs the same. I hooked ac power directly to the motor and it still cuts out and I can hear the thermal cut off resetting.

I am going to see if I can get a replacement for that component.
