13hp yardman snowblower, there is power in receptacle, but no sound of starter when I push the button.

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 start.....you 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

SOURCE: yardman snowblower wont start
More often than not, old gas in the carburator breaks down. It turns green and smells like turpentine. This usually fowls the carb inlet. I dodnot know the technical name but You can usually solve the problem by removing the bolt that holds the bottom of the carb. to the carb. It looks like a very small tin can under the carb. This contains the carb float and lets gas into the carb. The bolt is usually hollow and has two extremely small holes that allow gas to be taken up to the carb venturi. They are usually clogged and therefore no fresh gas gets through into the chamber. Use a very thin wire or needle to clear debri. Clean out old gas and residue before reassambley. It could also be the Carb float stuck closed and again no gas is getting through. You can service these issues usually without taking the carb off the motor.

Testimonial: "ill try that sound right"
This was poorly designed , you will have more problems unless you fix it right as the bolt heads underneath the shute ring is rubbing the right stop and on top of the motor housing the main problem is the left ring stop is hanging up on the front motor mount.
to fix it,remove the motor,grind about 3/16" off the rear shims and file about the same off the bottom of the front motor mount,remove the motor mount bracket,file about 1/4" off of the right stop,remove the shute and the shute ring, mark the left stop before removing,bend the left stop up about 3/16" be careful not to bend the ring,replace motor bracket first than shute ring and shute than replace motor.if your shute has hung up often you may need to replace the motor,you can go to an auto parts store buy a 1999 chevy lumnia passenger side window motor around $50.00 vs yardman $360.00 you will need to tap out the mount holes with a 5/16 standard thread tap and tap from the bottom of the motor,don't forget to file the bottom of front motor mount.

Check out the door switch. Push it in as far as you can by hand and hold then hhave someone try and start it. If that works you need a new door switch
