Snowblower runs then quits

Snowblower starts, but seems to run a little rough. Forgot to run stabilizer through it at end of last season. Drained old gas out, put in fresh gas, added a little carb cleaner. It will run for about 5 minutes and then quit. Do not put it under load, let it sit there at full throttle. Then it just quits. Seems to be starving for fuel. Let it sit for another 5 min. restart it , runs again and does the same as described above.
Please help!!!!!

Poulan snowblower won't start; it backfires and sometimes starts but only lasts a few minutes if lucky; I've replaced spark plug and gas.....no luck


Gotta take the Bowl off the carburetor and see if the Jet is Plugged up.
Today's Ethanol gas ills carburetors. New gas wont help a gummed up carb from leftover old gas.

Ariens snowblower won't start


Did you drain the gas from last year? Gas is only good for a few Months. You should always run the machine dry at the end of the season or add Fuel Stabilizer at the end of the season. Id start by getting all the old gas out of the tank and the fuel Bowl on the carburetor. You will also want to check for spark. to make sure there are no electrical issues. Check oil level also. Depending on machine it may not start if oil level is to low alot of machines have a oil pressure switch.

C950-52474-6 snowblower starts but don't stay ignited


Many small engine problems such as you described are fuel related. In today's world, most of our gasolines are blended with ethanol and thus gasoline shelf life has been reduced to 4-6 months. It is important that after each season's use you be certain to run the snowblower until all gasoline in the tank and carburetor have been used - effectively running the snowblower out of gas. If you did't do that last season the "old" gasoline in the carburetor has began to gum up and will not let the carburetor mix fuel and air properly. The solution will be to remove, disassemble and clean the carburetor. It is likely the gas tank will also need to be drained, removed, and cleaned. If you are unable to do this you will need to take to a qualified small engine mechanic in your area.

Lastly and, very importantly, make certain when you are ready to use your repaired snowblower that you use FRESH gasoline. And, remember the first part of this discussion at the end of the season.

Carburetor might be gummed up with old fuel. I would recommend carburetor overhaul. That should be the fix. When storing your snowblower till next use, either run the engine until out of gas or add fuel stabilizer to fuel tank to prevent fuel break down that causes damage to carburetors when not used for a long time.
