If old gas was left in the tank and not flushed it makes the carb stick and won't allow the proper gas flow to the motor...I would first test the plug by verifying it has spark..if it does what i do at times is quickly spray some quick start in the plug chamber and reinsert the plug and try to restart...this at times will get the spark going and allow the motor to can also try to spary some in the carb before starting...just a squirt or two....the best thing to do is actually clean out the carb as it is likely the issue.....hope this helps

MTD Mastercraft Snow King Snowblower (1997) electric starter stopped operating today (during a snow storm of course). Any ideas? Thanks. Checked cord - good condition. Power to the chord. David

It was running and stopped while using or it worked one day but not the next?
The Machine stopped running or just the electric starter? If just starter check to see if snow/ice built up around starter button.

My mastercraft "deluxe" 8 hp, 26" snowblower won't

Could be dirt in the carb. If this engine has a fuel cup on the bottom of the carb take it off and clean it out and clean the fuel jet. It is the little screw that has a little hole through it. If this has any dirt in it the engine will not run. A lot of engines I get in this is a quick fix as most people do not run the old fuel out before they store it for the summer. Check the spark plug as well and see if there is wet gas after trying to start. Maybe your choke is not working.
