How to clean carburetor on pressure washer

Looking for general information on how to clean a carburetor on a pressure washer? You've come to the right place! Here we'll discuss everything you need...

Before you start any work with the pressure washer, make sure it's no longer connected to a water source. In case of external connection, disconnect the hose from the tap and in case of internal connection (= water is inside the machine), turn off the pump switch before any maintenance.

Turn on the tap and let some water run through the machine for a while. Then turn off the tap, disconnect the hose and proceed with cleaning the carburetor.
