This sounds like a fuel supply problem. Like there is a restriction in the fuel supply some where. Pull off the main fuel line from the carb and check for fuel flow. Poor fuel flow here can be either a fuel tank port clog or an in-line fuel filter (if so equipped) If the fuel supply is good there then the problem is inside the carb.

If this is the first start of the season you may have to remove the carb float bowl as shown on the bottom of item 14 the above link to clean out the jet orifice in the threaded area of the carb. where the bowl nut attaches. Make sure you remove all debris in the carb float bowl area. You should also have good fuel flow any time the float is positioned below horizontal.

Here is a little about my experience:

Snow blower problem. my snapper 5horse snow blower doesn't throw snow like it used to. even stalls out when it used to go though 6" of snow easily. any suggestions?


Sounds like the high speed adjustment is out. You didn't say what engine is on it. If it has a bowl type carb it is on the bottom. Tank mount carb its on the side. Turn it out half turn and see if that helps ya it should. I am assuming the govenor is working. Hope this does it for ya.

I can start the lawn mower but it will stall if I press the primer button it will stay going....when it warms up I can get it to run but if I start to mow it will stall


First thing I would check is the air filter. Then the belt that drives the wheels. Open up the belt area and clean. Last I would check the carb. Good luck...Lee

Remove the float bowl again and remove the BRASS Jet in the bottom of the venturi throat. Clean the pin hole of the Jet so that you can see through it. DO NOT force anything through it. Just clean it. Underneath the jet is the venturi tube itself. It is also unscrewed with a screw driver. Remove it and clean all ofthe holes in it. Then reassemble tube and jet in to the venturi. Check the BOWL NUT for 2 holes. If the holes are clogged your engine will suffer from a lack of fuel. Lastly check that you have FUEL flow from the tank to the carb. If the tank outlet hole is clogged you will also have a lack of fuel problem.

Tecumseh 8hp HIGH REVING! snowblower


Hi,

be careful, if the engine over revs it may just explode. These engines are very picky if over sped and easily blow up.
Your problem may be a broken throttle control rod, have look at that first. If the control rods are fine and in place it could be the fly wheel governor is worn out.

Snow blower gets bogged down in snow.


It sounds like your engine is running lean, see if you can adjust the high throttle mixture on the carburetor (if possible at all). If there is no adjustment possible, it may be the carb is clogged and needs some service. Try cleaning it or find a new replacement carb for it.
