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.

I have a snow king sno blower HMSK80 ,with a Tecumpsh 8hp,how do I adjust the carb., #1432F6h


If you have an adjustable main jet on your carb. Which is a screw sticking out of the bottom of the carb bowl. And you tried turning it and nothing happened. Then chances are your carbs main jet is just partially blocked. So no amount of adjusting will richen the mixture up. If your snow blower has a few years on it you may also be suffering from poor valve clearance which can sometimes cause erratic operation. A compression gauge will let you know if you are in need of a valve grinding or not. Finally you can try draining your fuel out and getting fresh fuel. Also be sure the fuel doesn't go into any can with old fuel in it. Be safe and good luck!

My 4514 Honda has a snow blower for the winter . It keeps stalling and the fuel pump never shuts off so I guess isn't pressurizing . I pulled the fuel line at the carb & it is pumping gas ....


sounds as if there is sticky gum in the carb that is keeping the float from seating unless it is hot enough to unstick. Take the carb bowl off and examine it for gum (real old gasoline will do that.

I have a 1996 Ariens ST-24 snowblower that is hard starting. When it does start it runs just fine. The Tecumseh engine has a primer and I run synthetic oil, 5W30 Mobil 1 and use non-oxy gas with Sea


You could have a hole you cant see in the primer or line to the carb. They vibrate and rub. Make sure you DONT use eco gas. This will turn your gaskets to trash in one summer of not using it. Lastly dump out the old gas and start with new. Snow blowers are famous for condensation building in the tank. Hope I helped

Will not start even withew gas


Try a spray of starting fluid into the carb. If it fires you know you have good spark. If it did not fire replace your spark plug. If it still won't fire point and condensor need to be replaced. If it did fire spray the starting fluid in the carb a few more times to pull the old fuel through the fuel line til the new gas gets through the carb and then it should run. Some machines have a fuel shut off valve make sure it is open.

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
