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.
Is the plug receptacle you use for your blower a GFI receptacle? If so you may have to reset the GFI as they do blow very easily sometimes. There should be a switch in the plug receptacle in if it is a GFI
You may need to reset it.
I don't know if there is a reset button on your machine or not.
Mine the electric cord had pulled out of the receptacle.on the blower so it was not working. I pulled it right out and reinstalled it It's ok now.
Do you have power coming to the blower or have you blown a GFI and it needs to be reset. Does the starter click or try to work? These are things that I have to know before we tear things apart.
If it buzzes it could need a gear replacement. on the starter itself.
