It is very important to keep the air filter clean on all of your equipment, including your power washer!
In case you don't know how to do this, all you have to do is follow these steps!
Slide the air cleaner leaver to the unlock position and then tilt the cover down to gain access to the air filter
Carefully remove the air cleaner, being sure to handle it with care so that no debris fall into the carburetor
If you are going to re use your old air filter (if it is not too dirty or damaged) wash it in liquid detergent and water, squeeze the air filter dry in a clean cloth
Saturate the foam air cleaner in engine oil and then wrap the filter in a cloth and squeeze it to remove excess oil
Re-install the clean or new air filter onto the base
Replace the cover and slide the lever to the lock position
It's as simple as that! Be sure that you consult you owner's manual for a suggested maintenance schedule
