Question about Briggs and Riley Garden
Take carburetor off, remove carburetor bowl, there is 1 bolt under the bowl that holds it on. If it looks gummed up, has brown and or gummy deposits it needs to be soaked in carb cleaner, paint stripper also works well. Let it soak for a few hours and check it. Also the bolt has 1 hole in the center of the end of the bolt & 2 holes on the sides of the bolt. Push a sewing pin or some other object that will fit through the holes to clear them out. Adter all that rinse the carburetor out with water, then blow out with compressed air, especially all holes.

SOURCE: Pressure washer with no pressure
Are you priming the water lines before you switch on the power?
i.e. with power OFF, hook up hose and turn hose on (doesn't need to have much hose pressure), then take your spray gun or attachment and pull the trigger and allow water to flow through the system (at hose pressure obviously). You might need to gravity feed it if its not flowing through...
But you will generally only get pressure once all the air is removed from the lines and the pump is pushing water only... Once you have water flow and lines are primed, switch on pump and see if that solves it.

After a long none use, I tried to wash my driveway and powered on the washer,it did, but when i tried to engage the power washer by pressing the wand lever, it did not engage. What can I do to get the power washer working?

From the manual CleanShot 2050 Briggs and Stratton
Change Pump Oil
1. Drain engine oil and fuel from pressure washer
2. Use an 8 mm allen wrench to remove black pump oil cap between high pressure outlet and garden hose inlet.
3. Tiltl pressure washer to drain oil into an approved container until it drips slowly from pump.
4.Tilt pressure washer in opposite direction and empty premeasured pump oil bottle into same opening (a small funnel may be helpful) [THIS IS WHAT THE MANUAL SAYS-NOT CLEARLY WRITTEN IN MY OPINION OR WRITTEN BY SOMEONE FOR WHOM ENGLISH IS A SECOND LANGUAGE]
5. Install black pump oil cap and tighten firmly.
6. Set pressure washer in upright position. Add fuel and engine oil.
From the engine manual use synthetic 5w-30, 10w-30 from -20 degrees F to temperature of 100 degrees F.
Change oil after 5 hours of operation initially. Before tipping to drain oil, remove fuel from fuel tank by running until tank is empty. Remove oil cap and dipstick and tip engine. Keep spark plug side up. Or remove drain plug from the bottom of pressure washer with a ratchet and square extension and drain oil from bottom. (fuel does not have to be removed)

SOURCE: Need to know where oil
I have the same model...... it should be just underneath the unit.... it will look like a square head recessed. I used the ratchet set extension and it fit just right. I literally had to tilt the darn thing upside down to find it. Then once it was loosen a bit, I put the machine upright on the wheels again, and slip a plastic pan underneath as I finished unscrewing the oil plug, Out came the black goo.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly
First off make sure the oil is full in the crank case.
Remove the spark plug and check for spark with the Engine on / off switch ON.
If there is good spark then turn off the fuel and remove the float bowl by unscrewing the bowl nut.
1) Remove all of the debris from the float bowl. It must be very clean.
2) Clean the bowl nut. This to must be very clean.
3) In the threaded area that the bowl nut screws into there is a Brass fuel jet. You must make sure that the pin hole of the jet is free of obstructions. I use a round toothpick broken in half. Use it like a scraper and clear the pin hole of the orifice. DO NOT force the toothpick into the orifice hole. It will break off and clog the orifice. Spray carb cleaner downward into the brass tube in the carb throat making sure that the carb cleaner passes through the jet orifice.
4) Use a spray paint can lid to catch fuel and turn on the fuel. Fuel should flow enough to fill the spray paint can lid in 8 to 10 seconds with the float hanging down. Raise the float gently to the level position and make sure fuel flow stops. (If you are not getting fuel to the carb remove the main fuel line at the carb and check fuel flow.) I.e fuel selector lever on and off. Poor fuel flow here = clogged fuel tank outlet port of debris in the fuel shut off valve area.
5) Install spark plug fuel lines and float bowl.
6) Attempt start. It should start. If it does not start squirt a small amount of fuel into the carb and try a start. Just respond here with symptoms. I.e have fuel.. have spark / fuel in carb throat = brief start or no start.
There is more that can be done.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,
