Hi roaddoctor86; I suspect that your carb is the source of your problem in the fuel system. I always drain the fuel in my 2 cycle and even 4 cycle engines and then start them and run them dry, before I put them up for the winter/. I would suggest you drain the tank or at least take most of the gas out and then add a can of gas treatment/solvent and see if that helps. Something like Heet I think is one product.

Hope this helps good Luck Loriongh ps Please leave a rating if appropriate Thanks

Hi roaddoctor86,

I aggree, you do have a carburetor problem, Loringh gave great advise for preventive maintenance but the damage already is done to your carb. You may be best of by just buying a new carb to get your snowblower working again. The old carb may need complete refurbishment. I believe just letting it sit in some sort of carb cleaner does not do the trick, I tried that myself and the carb still did not work right.

I tried cooking it in distilled water for an hour and still did not help, save yourself the aggrevation and just buy a new one and your back in business.

Hope this helps

There is no need to prime. But you do need to use the black spray nozzle to get soap to siphon out.
if that doesn't solve the problem let me know

All outflow stops when I start the motor on my Troy-bilt 2600 pressure washer. What's up?


Could also be crack/leak in HP pump. If it were left in cold weather without antifreeze, I'd check there first. Part + labor might warrant new washer if more than a couple years old.
Sorry.

Gas leaks out side of pressure washer


Your washer was sitting for a while I suspect. Check the carb and make sure it is tight to the engine. If it is then you will need to take the carb off, careful not to tear any gaskets. Then remove the fuel bowl and clean out all ports. Make sure to clean out the jet as well as I suspect the fuel is clogged in the carb and overfilling. Your needle valve is stuck open and then flooding your carb and spilling out the side of your engine. Make sure your needle valve and float can move freely before reassembling. Good luck
