Adding/Checking Oil.
Cleaning and Maintenance 19
IMPORTANT
Used oil is a hazardous waste product and must be
disposed of properly. Do not discard with household
waste. Check with your local authorities, service
centre, or Canadian Tire for safe disposal/recycling
facilities.
Checking Air Filter
IMPORTANT
Clean air filter (12) element after every 50 hours of
use (every 10 hours under dusty conditions). Wash
in high flashpoint solvent, squeeze dry, dip in clean
engine oil, and squeeze out excess oil.
11
Screw down the knob counterclockwise, and
open the air filter housing outward. Take the air
filter down and use water to clean. After cleaning,
soak it into kerosene. Then put back the air filter
to air cleaner, and fix the air cleaner housing.
3. Check the gap with a wire gauge. If necessary,
reset the gap to 0.7 - 0.8 mm. Install and tighten
the spark plug to the recommended torque – 180
lb.in. (20 Nm).
4. Reinstall the spark plug wire and protection cage
in reverse order.
Inspecting, Replacing or Cleaning the
Spark Plug
The spark plug should be checked after every 100
hours of operation or every six months.
To replace or clean the spark plug:
1. Disconnect the spark plug wire by pulling it off the
spark plug.
2. Using provided spark plug wrench (N), remove the
spark plug by turning it counter-clockwise. If there
is a carbon sediment build-up, remove it. If there
is too much carbon sediment, replace the spark
plug.
NOTE: In some areas, local law requires using a
resistor spark plug to suppress ignition signals. If this
engine was originally equipped with a resistor spark
plug, use the same type for replacement.

been completely drained.
2. Add fuel stabilizer
• If you do not wish to drain the fuel tank (16), add a
fuel stabilizer into the fuel tank. Run the engine at
least five minutes after adding the stabilizer to
distribute it inside the fuel system.
7.4 Cleaning the Spray Tips
WARNING
Clogging of the spray tip increases the water
pressure and might damage the pump unit.
Clean the spray tip by carefully inserting the provided
spray tip cleaner (M), or a thin, sharp object (e.g.,
paper clip) into the tip to remove deposits.
3. Drain oil
• Drain the oil (→Section 7.2 Draining Engine Oil).

7.6 Winterizing Procedure
• Pressure washer might be damaged if subjected to
freezing temperatures. This type of damage is not
covered by the limited warranty. To avoid possible
damages, use a small amount of antifreeze.
Maximum Pressure
Rated Water
Pressure
• Place the pressure washer on its side, with the
water inlet (8) facing upwards, and pour 1/4 cup (60
ml) of antifreeze into the water inlet (8).
Maximum Water
Flow
• Make sure the engine I/O switch is set to O position
and pull the starter cord handle several times to
distribute the antifreeze inside the pump system.
Minimum Inlet
Pressure
Maximum Inlet
Pressure
• When taking the pressure washer out of storage,
run water through the system until it runs clear.
IMPORTANT
• If the pressure washer is to be stored with
gasoline in the fuel tank and carburetor, it is
important to reduce the hazard of gasoline vapour
ignition.
• Select a well-ventilated storage area away from
any appliance that operates with a flame, such as a
furnace, water heater, or clothes dryer. Also avoid
any area with a spark-producing electric motor, or
where power tools are operated.
• If possible, avoid storage areas with high humidity,
because that promotes rust and corrosion.
• Place the pressure washer on a level surface.
Tilting can cause fuel or oil leakage.
• Do not use plastic sheets as a dust cover. A
nonporous cover will trap moisture around the
pressure washer, promoting rust and corrosion.
