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 :
If your pressure washer is refusing to work or even turn on, the culprit could potentially be the power switches. Most pressure washers use two micro switches that disconnect both the live and neutral connections between the supply and the motor. These switches can jam cutting the power out from reaching the motor.
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.
Briggs And Stratton Lawn Mower Engine Locked Up
Common causes of this type of engine lock-up include a lack of oil in the engine, incorrect fuel and spark plug misfiring.
Each time the power cord is plugged in to an outlet, the Reset button on the GFCI module must be pressed down to connect to electricity. Check to see if the Reset button has been pressed. Next, confirm the small plastic window below the Reset button shows RED in the window.
If the pump is leaking, the cause may be minor and easy to repair. Check the seals, packings, and O-rings for wear. These can easily be replaced, saving you the cost of a new pump. However, major leaks such as the ones caused by cracked or damaged plungers, can lead to pump failures.
Water leaking from a loose connection can cause the unit to cycle on and off. Verify if the pressure hose has an O-ring at the connection. If missing, this will also cause the unit to cycle on and off. While the unit is running look for any water leaks that may cause the unit to turn back on.
It Can Harm The Unit
A pressure washer requires water to cool and lubricate the pump, which is the part responsible for pushing water from the supply hose to the nozzle. Without water to cool and lubricate it, the pump will work harder than it should, causing it to wear down quickly.
You can leave the garden hose out of the equation. Portable pressure washers have an easy-fill tank to which you can add a certain amount of water, from your indoor tap or water supply. The tank and washer are integrated into a single device, so your power washer doesn`t need any additional technology.
The problem may be in the recoil starter itself. A tangled coil of rope or a broken spring may be the problem. In many cases the recoil starter is easily replaced as a single assembly. DO NOT attempt do take the starter apart.
Gas Pressure Washer Attachments
There are only three basic types of connections used on gas units: M22, 3/8″ threaded, and Quick Connects. The only exception is with the gun and lance.
No, not all pressure washer accessories are universal, nor are they always interchangeable. Accessories may differ in fittings from one machine to another and may not fit together correctly. Some pressure washers are also brand-specific, meaning they will only work with accessories from the same manufacturer.
Blade obstruction occurs when something is blocking or stopping the blade from moving and makes your pull cord hard to pull. This issue commonly occurs when there is small debris lodged between the blade and the mower deck or when you are starting your lawn mower in the yard.

The pull cord on gas pressure washer wont allow me to pull it as though it is tangled up, But when i removed the housing, it woorks just fine
Sometimes the housing gets bent slightly. A lot of the housings have little taps or prongs that get slightly bent. I would take the housing off make sure it not bent or warp, to make sure there is nothing to block the free flow of then cord flowing. If it pulls fine with housing off, and hangs up when installed it slightly bent. Use small needle nose pliers and gently bend tabs away from area where cord is hanging up.

Where is drain plug for engine oil – Briggs & Stratton Gas Pressure Washer 20244
If you are refering to the engine, the drain plug is on the underside above the pump. Sometimes it’s located on both sides at the very bottom where the engine is bolted to the frame. It may have both of these drains, but the one on the side you can’t get to due to the frame being in the way so this is why they put them in two different spots. I hope this helps.
