Adjusting a Craftsman Snowblower Carburetor

I just purchased a Craftsman 179cc 24" Snow Thrower brand new. Is there an adjustment on the carb to adjust the speed/rpm? Even with the throttle at the high or fast position, the motor just seems to lag. Adjusting the choke on this unit doesn't seem to make any difference, aside from when the unit is cold. It just feels as though an adjustment would rev the engine to its proper rpm. I'm just not sure if there is an adjustment screw. I read somewhere that some engines don't have an adjustment, and it is what it is. I have the manual, and in the troubleshooting section, it says "If the engine runs erratically, the carburetor is not adjusted properly". Then it says, "Contact your Sears Parts & Repair Center".  Go figure!
Help!

Where are the adjusting screws on the carburetor for the st330p snowblower and what is the procedure to adjust both idling speed and full speed to prevent stalling under load.


Your carburetor is not adjustable. If your engine does not operate properly due to suspected carburetor problems, take your snow thrower to a service center/department.

Snow blower dying out?


Its the carburetor. Needs to be cleaned. But try this first. On the bottom of carb is a round bowl with a bolt holding it on .If snowblower has gas in it clamp fuel line to stop fuel leakage. Remove bolt and pull bowl down slowly. Look in bowl to see if there is water at bottom under gas.To be sure dump out fuel and clean out bowl with clean rag and some air. Next place a small piece of tube in bottom of carb that you took bolt out to hold bowl on. Blow air in to remove any dirt and reassemble carefully and refuel carb and start engine. Good luck.

Runs for 10 minutes and stops


When running is the idle smooth or up and down?
Is the chock operating, or adjusted after the motor gets warm?
Is the carburetor needle adjusted after the engine idles to warm as it should be to be set correctly.
Are you blowing snow when it dies or at idle?

Carberater for my snow thrower isn't getting gas


The carburetor could be clogged. Try spraying some carb cleaner into the engine to see if it starts. If it does, then some part of the carb may have varnish clogging some of the ports.
