I know this might sound crazy but try replacing gas cap, or leave it a little lose as test. If the vent in cap is not functioning no air can enter the fuel tank. Then no fuel will come out the hose on the bottom.

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.

Recheck spark when the unit cuts out. I am gonna guess you spent a lto of money chasing a bad coil! When a coil starts to go bad they become temperature sensitive. Time does the rest!

My snowblower starts up easy but then it quits


Has it got a shutoff solenoid on the base of the carb? My lawn tractor would run fine for 15 minutes then shut off. Found out it was that solenoid.

Onan generator dies after 2-3 hours of running , wiil not restart rigt away wait 10 minutes starts no problem then runs for 15 minutes shuts down and keeps reapeating on 15 off 10


This sounds like overheating. These small generators don't have overheating protection, but if a low oil pressure or low oil level is present it may be the reason for stopping.

Check the oil level in the starting conditions and again when it stops. It may become under the "stop" level and after some time the precipitated oil has reached the "start" level. The same may be with oil viscosity and oil pressure.

Try to add some oil or change the oil with bigger viscosity.

Briggs and Straton 8 hp, craftsman snowblower stalls


Sounds like you coil is over heating after running a few minutes. The windings are seperating, then when it sools they make contact again. Try replacing the coil.

Hi
Sounds like a clogged carb which is a common problem for snowblowers due to they set around more then they get used and gas turns stale and clogs carb. Most of the times the problem is in the bolt that holds the carb bowl on it should have 2 or 3 small holes in it. Check that the holes are all open and clean if this does not help you will need to remove and clean whole carb.

Engine shuts off after about 10 minutes of use


Try loosening the gasoline cap on the engine. My snowblower acted the same way until a mechanic told me it sounds like the engine is not getting enough air. Some gasoline cap vents go bad and starve the engine. If your engine continues to run you can buy a new gas cap.
