First take the carb off of the engine and then remove the bowl, carefully take the float off paying special attention to the needle and how it is attached to the float. Next, lightly blow air into the fuel inlet while holding your finger over the spot where the needle goes in. Use a bread tie with the paper scraped off. Stick the wire through the pick up tube at the bottom of the carb. Find any other holes and probe those holes with the wire. Then thoroughly wash the entire carb with carb cleaner then blow the whole carb off. Then put the float and needle back in making sure that when putting the bowl back on that it seats tightly all the way around the rubber gasket. Also, just before you put the bowl on turn the carb upside down to see if the float is sitting level. If it is put the bowl on, If not then the spot where the needle sits on the float has to be bent one way or the other just a little until the float sits level. After the bowl is put in place, the nut that holds the bowl on the threaded area should have two possibly three holes plus the hole down the center, probe all holes with the wire. put everything back on the motor and try again. If it still won't run then you will need a carb kit.

Well this could be a couple of things first thing first is check the air filter and make sure its clean you can blow it with air or pore gas over it and clean it make sure you let it dry before reinserting
second im assuming this is the first time you have used it this year if so the gas you have in it hasnt been sitting in it all year has it like anything else gas gets old
third alot of times you can let it run for a while with the choke out then slowly pushing it in
fourth you could have water in the gas remove the tank and empty it remove the spark plug turn the engine 4 or 5 times only bumping it dont hold it down this will blow some of the water out then dry the spark plug off and replace it
if this doesnt help it could possibly be carburetor problems

Hello,

The problem is you are running lean. The first thing you should do is dump the fuel out of the tank,lines and carburetor. The second thing you need to do is remove the float bowl and clean it out. The problem is either water holding the float in the up position, or stale fuel is got it "glued" in the up positon. You need to correct whichever it is. The needle jet needs to move freely to allow fuel flow. This may require you to remove the carb. to clean it correctly. The middle part, the part that sticks down through the float, has the main jet in it. This will also need to be removed and checked to make sure it is open. One of these reasons is the cause of your problems.

Hope this was usefull to you, Matt

SOURCE: Hi I have a Craftsman

the carburetor is lean, most likely is there is dirt in the main jet, remove the float bowl and unscrew the main jet from the bottom of the carburetor and blow threw it backwards to remove the dirt. reinstall and readjust the fuel mixture....HAVE FUN

2 stage craftsman snowblower1 year old with 5 hours running time won't run with the choke off


it is a carburetor issue. inside the carburetor the fuel gums up especially in seasonal equipment as snowblowers. look inside the bowl and see if there is any water. take it off and clean it real good with carburetor cleaner. it will run like new.

Adjust choke


I am not sure about yours but my Craftsman has a adjusting screw in the carb to set the gas. If it is choking you screw it in a little and if it falters screw it out a little. You should be able to adjust with it running. Just turn a little at a time. Mine uses a flat screw driver.

Your snowblower carburator is gummed up. Go to an auto parts store and get a can of a carb. cleaner called seafoam. Follow the directions as far as how much to put into the snowblower gas tank. Run it for a few minutes and it will clear up. Regards, Joe
