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.

My snowblower isn't starting


If it's the starter that makes a humming noise then you need to check the starter out. the gears could be stripped or even a tooth missing so it won't grab the fly wheel. Try pulling the start rope and see if that makes a difference. My Craftsman 8 horse has a recoil starter as well and I quite often use it as well. I don't always use the electric start.

Brand new snowblower. Engine will not start


Stuck? you mean if you try to use the pull starter the engine will not let you pull the cord out?
Will it not start OR is the engine frozen. help us with your description
Take the Spark Plug out and see if that helps it turn over. Maybe the float in the Carburetor is stuck open and the cylinder filled with gas Causing Hydrolock.

My snowblower just died 2 years old its an ariens 8524 just sold it to a friend and he said it siezed up no iol is this possible or is there a saftey device on the engine that just shuts it down


there is a low oil sensor that does shut down the motor when the oil level gets to low -- fill oil to the correct height and try and start the machine.
now if the motor is infact siezed up and wont even pull ( siezed piston ) then there is a chance that the sensor failed and the machine did run out of oil and siezed up. if this is the case then the piston rings will need to be replaced.

MTD Snowblower starts good but runs very rough


Carb adjustment. There is usually a HIGH and LOW fuel mixture adjustment on the carb. Sounds like the LOW needs to be adjusted. Do a search on the Internet for a service manual for your particular model/make. Simple job IF you have the manual there for guidance.
Good Luck

I can't find my manual for a Tecumsah LawnBoy 824E 8.0HP Electric start snowblower. It starts fine, but does not continue running. I just filled the tank with new gas. It ran to run about 25 feet and then...


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.
