Have a two years old Bosch Aquatek 160 Pro power washer
It has been cutting out frequently when in use for more than 10 minutes and blows the 13 amp plug fuse very frequently
Immediately before cutting out, it makes a loud buzzing/vibrating noise
Have spoken to Bosch technical help line, but they have no idea
Bosch don't seem to have any local maintenance/repair outlets and suggest sending it back to Bosch which is areal problem with repackaging etc
Any clue as to what is going on electrically ?
