Sounds like its flooded. This same exact thing just happened to me.
Suggestion:

Let it sit with the the choke off. After a few hours, try starting it again, but don't mess with the choke (leave the choke set as if it was running hot). By your pulling of the recoil cord, you will be helping to clean out the flooded engine. Don not prime it during this excercise. (only pull the recoil 4 or 5 times).

Then let it sit again for a few hours.

After that waiting period, you should be able to start as normal, use the electroic start to get it going and lest it run, as normal.

You should then be all set.

One year old murry snowblower won't start. Don't smell gas


Most of the time it is trash in the carb. try putting just a small amount of gas in the carb. do that a few times until it starts you might have to use your hand to act as a choke, moving your hand up and down over the carb opening until it runs smooth on it's own.

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.

I cant find the manual to my huskee 27 in. snowblower, and the blower is currently buried under about 18 inches of snow and a tarp, so i cant readily get at the model #. all i need is refresher on how to...


It's difficult to tell you how to start "the thing" if we don't even know whether it's an electric start or a pull start, like a lawnmower. The model would be of great use. I would suggest you dig it out first, then worry about how to start it.

I need a manual for a snowblower craftsman 10/30 it doesn't start,i changed the sparkplug and it doesn't chage anything,i change the oil last year,does it need to be changed this year to


Hi
Most common problem with snowblowers is clogged carb. Remove spark plug and put a tea spoon full of gas in the plug hole and try to start. If it starts for a sec that is your problem. To get a manual go to searspartsdirect.com you will need the model number to find the correct manual. Model number should start with 917.XXXXXXX.
