SOURCE: on my two stage snow blower--main auger stops turning .

Hi, I figured out the problem. The gear transfer case between the augers must be broke. The auger spins slowly until it hits snow and then stops-- The discharge fan continues to spin fast. I will try to get a local handyman to fix it or else but a new machine, this one must be at least 15-16 years old.
I thank you for your help, it is a great service. ojohn

SOURCE: one side of my ARIENS ST928 SNOW BLOWER doesn't work

most likely you have a broken shear pin. Look on the side that works, there should be a bolt or pin through it. The side that is not working is probably broke off. Find the hole in the auger and line it up with the inner shaft and replace with proper shear pin/bolt. Shear bolts can be obtained from most outdoor power equipment shops. I do not suggest replacing with standard bolt as it can cause damage to you gear box it auger gets jammed.

This is a good time to remind everyone that you should not leave fuel in equipment that is not used on a very regular basis. More than likely your carburetor is gummed up from the old fuel. This can happen in less than 30 days much less 2 years.
To properly clean a carburetor you need to remove the carburetor and purchase the correct kit for the rebuild. Disassemble the
carburetor carefully making notes where each part goes. Once you have the carburetor disassembled clean it by soaking it in carburetor cleaner for a few hours. Use anned aerosol automotive carb spray cleaner to fill a small glass jar with enough cleaner to submerge the carburetor. Use a jar with a metal lid so you can gently agitate the solution occasionally to make the process more effective. You need to allow the carburetor to soak as long as it needs to remove all visible deposits. After the carburetor is cleaned allow it to dry and reassemble.

Need a carburetor for old Ariens snowblower. Number on carb is 510121 but can't find anywhere?????


Carb was probably bought in from a specialist manufacturer by the engine maker along with the ignition equipment and the maker of the snow blower in turn would have likely bought in the engines.
Few manufacturers bother making stuff for themselves when others can do it better and cheaper.

If you want it to be authentic I suggest you get in touch with Ariens with details and pictures of your snowblower and ask them if they have anyone there with a long white beard and a memory to match who could tell you where the carbs were sourced. It will be a matter of playing detective and following a line of clues.

If you aren't bothered about authenticity there are a number of generic replacement carbs that could be made to fit and jetted to suit and if it is a governed engine the governor could probably be made to fit too.

Snow thrower doesn't start up!


If you have a spark at the plug (you have checked?) it's probably fuel blockage. Check all lines, fuel filter and carburettor are clean, use a carburettor cleaner spray to get all the gum out.

Ariens st24e leaking gas from carb body


As you said, it's probably got a stuck float. If stored without draining and fuel petcock turned off, gas evaporates from carb bowl and sticks float down, allowing fuel to flow all the time.

Solution: Remove carb and fully clean. Carb dip can be effective if left long enough but it will not clean out totally closed-up holes or clogged passages. Cleaners can only dissolve varnish if they can get to it and totally clogged passages won't allow cleaner to flow to where it's needed. Pros use a hot bath of cleaner and/or ultrasonic cleaners.

Start with a carburetor rebuild kit and use as many parts as necessary. Be careful to remove rubber parts like O-rings and gaskets before cleaning with solvents. Adjust mixture screws to factory recommendations and fine tune after you get it running. Good idea to purchase an engine service manual for you particular engine.

I have an Ariens 922018 snow blower. There is gas in the bowl. One pull it will run until the ether burns off. Completely cleaned the carb. No change. What could be keeping it from running?


Were I you I would assume that someone let it sit with gas in it for a summer and the gas in it turned into a shellac which has totally gummed up the carburetor. So what I would do is get a rebuild kit for the carb at a small engine shop, tear it down completely clean it and put it back together. Assuming it then runs I would make an effort to dump some Sta-bil in the gas tank at the end of each season before it goes into 3 season slumber. Just because there is fresh gas in the tank or bowl does not mean it is getting into the air/fuel mixture system.

I neglected to run my Ariens 5524 snowbower dry last spring.


No, just spraying gumout in the carb will not likely help. You will need to remove the carb, disassemble it and clean it. I suggest replacing the needle, bowl gasket and bowl nut gasket. Be sure you have cleared all passages in the carb.

I Have a Older 5HP Ariens Snow Blower. It Fires Up and Runs On Starter Fluid. Gasoline, NOPE. What Is the Proper Number Of Spark Plug to Use in a Ariens 5 HP Snow Blower. I Believe it is Gapped at .30 ??...


Gary, J19LM is a good fit.

Fuel Starvation - Float Bowl Carburetor
1) remove air filter assembly
*be cautious of tearing the mounting gasket. If it does tear, you HAVE to replace it. It is part of the priming system
2) remove the float bowl fastener. This is the main jet
3) carefully remove the float bowl, the rubber o-ring/gasket will not be able to be used if it is removed, you WILL have to replace it
4) using a spray 'carb cleaner'
spray up thru the center of the carburetor
spray and clean the main jet with cleaner and 'tag' wire
(tag wire is very thin, and can be used to clean the hole in the center of the main jet)
5) clean any debris from inside the bowl or carb body
6) re-install bowl and center bolt, air filter assembly

*if you need gaskets, your Briggs dealer can supply. The kit is cheaper than individual gaskets, and all the parts needed to finish the above repair are in the kit.

Very heavy smoke on start-up & primer bulb prob.


It should be fine, it's just some oil that seeped through and is now in the muffler. Just let it run for a while to burn off what is in the muffler you may also have a little bit in the carb, if you want to check the carb just pull the bowl off to see if there is any thing for oil in there, be sure to shut the fuel off or clamp it off with needle nose vise grips before you pull the bowl off. Otherwise everything will be ok just run it for a while and keep an eye on the oil level.
