Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
Empty the gas tank and, if you dare to try, the carb bowl too. If you don’t dare don’t worry about it. Refill with fresh gas, start it up and let it run. If it doesn;t run too good trying cleaning or changing the plug.

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.
Use Briggs & Stratton SAE 30W Oil above 40°F (4°C) for all of our engines. Check oil level regularly. Air-cooled engines burn about an ounce of oil per cylinder, per hour. Fill to mark on dipstick.

Experts advise doing an initial oil change after the first 50 hours of pump use. After that, change the crankcase oil every 3 months or after every 500 hours of operation, whichever comes first. High pressure plunger pumps require a specially formulated oil; otherwise regular pump oil is appropriate.

Where is drain plug for engine oil – Briggs & Stratton Gas Pressure Washer 20244
ANSWER : 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.

I have a Briggs & Stratton pressure washer, Model # 20292 (True Bilt 2200). I have no problem getting it to turn over and it will run for 3-5 seconds, but then die. Any suggestions.
ANSWER : If #1 doesn’t work, the ports in your carb could be clogged. I just dealt with this problem this weekend. This is a relatively easy fix. Locate your carburetor and find the aluminum bowl underneath. On the bottom of the bowl, you’ll find a bolt. Loosen the bolt (gasoline will come out because the bowl is a reservoir for gas, but please make sure you’ve turned the gas supply off) and remove the bolt and the bowl. Clean any debris out of the bowl. The ports are holes in the bolt you removed. Make sure that air can pass through these holes (I blow through them, but I don’t mind the taste of gas too much. Probably NOT healthy. You can use thin wire, carb cleaner, etc..) Reassemble and your motor may start, if this was the problem. Make sure that the bowl seats properly and that you are careful screwing in the bolt, lest you cross-thread it. Hope that helps.

Briggs and Stratton pressure washer will not spray water. The engine is fine but water does not flow.
ANSWER : The nozzle on the end of the spray wand has a very small hole in it that can be easily clogged by any sort of debris that comes through the water supply.If the nozzle can be removed, just take a pin & clear the hole from the outside & rinse it off. If the nozzle can’t be removed, then take the wand apart at the connector in the middle and do the same thing.
