Question about 2002 Husqvarna TE 400

1 Answer

Ariens 2 cycle snowblower runs a short time then stalls.

Ariens 2 cycle snowblower runs if I keep it tipped back but stalls when I set it down. If I prime it in normal down position it will run briefly until gas in carb is used up. It will run like a charm if I keep it tipped back. I hope you can help. Thank you.

Sincerely,
Denis Jones

That sounds like a float problem. When you tip it back it is raising the floats letting the fuel go through the carb. But when back at normal it closes the the fuel feed and thus stalling the engine check the float assembly.

I didn't realize that my Ariens 522 2 cycle snowblower is a oil/gas mix. I filled my tank full with just gas and no oil. Can i just add in oil and manually mix it?


Yes, you can. I thought it was a chain saw, but you can shake a snowblower :>) Put the oil in stir vigorously with a spoon.

I changed the category.

Jeff, Try running with cap off for a short time to see if cap vents plugged, probable dirty carburetor.

this i what my pressure washer does... I would say its just getting aged and you shouldnt have to worry about it, but if you want to try to get it to stop then give it a good tune up. spark plug air filter and clean the carb out with a small wire or tourch tip cleaner to make sure all the passages are clean and clear... or just let it keep doing it like I do.

My toro snowblower keeps stalling. It starts up fine, but won't run continuously.


If you haven't already, dump out gas and put fresh in it and try this, if it doesn't work you will have to clean the carb, take it apart and clean all jets ports etc and put back together and you should be Good to Blow Snow, pretty common problem with Small Engines that set half the season.

Ariens snowblower impeller not throwing snow


Sounds like you have a broken or partially broken shear pin in the auger.Check along the auger[machine off]and see if there is what looks like a bolt anywhere along the auger shaft.If there is [and there will be] remove and inspect it and you will see why the auger is not working.Next time,never clean out a chute or auger while the engine is running,people loose limbs this way.

My ariens snowblower only works in the choke position. once i turn it where it sould be it stalls


had same problem with a small 2 cycle outboard motor last year. I had run it during the summer, put it away for the winter and when I went to fire it up the following Spring it would only run with half to full choke. Old fuel had gummed up the carburater by letting it sit in there for a few months, had to disassemble and clean all the carb parts (including the jets) and it worked good as new. You could do it yourself or take carb to a small engine repair shop and have them do it. May or may not require a rebuild kit depending on how gummed up it is. Hope this helps.
