Question about Ariens 34 In. Zoom Series Riding Mower

Brand new Ariens ST624e seized after 15 minutes of operation?

I bought a new Ariens Model 920001 snow thrower at Home Depot a couple of months ago. At the time I assembled it and "ran it in" for 15 minutes as per the manual and everything seemed fine. A couple of days ago I needed to to use it and when I pulled the recoil starter it started right away but stalled out after a few seconds. I pulled the starter again and it ran about two seconds and then stopped. The next time I pulled the starter the motor could not be turned. I checked the oil level and it was okay. Suspecting the recoil starter I removed it but that wasn't the problem. I removed the spark plug and it looked soaked in oil. The motor still wouldn't turn with the spark plug out.

I had added gas stabilizer to the fuel when I filled it for the first time.

Any idea what could have gone wrong?

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

If there is oil on the sparkplug, you have blown a cylinder seal. It will need repair.

I have a ariens 24 "sno tech it will not throw


The most common cause of this is the drive belt is worn. If you remove the cover (usually plastic) in the middle of the snow thrower and look at the belt closest to the blower assembly. This is the blower drive belt. (Your operators manual will show you the location and how to remove the cover if you are unfamiliar with your snow blower)
With the engine not running, have someone depress the drive lever and check the belt. You should only be able to depress the long side 1/2 inch or less. More than that the belt has stretched and needs to be replaced. On some older blowers you can adjust the tension pulley, but most made in the last 15 years, you can't.
The belt may be frayed on the edges or glazed causing it to slip (it is shiny on the sides of the belt)
You can get parts (the new belt) through your local Ariens dealer or jackssmallengines.com

Just wondering if my ariens st350 snow machine uses detergent or non-detergent oil? Thanks


Hello. Actually, Many snow thrower manufacturers now recommend using synthetic motor oil particularly for subzero temperatures. Synthetic oil, such as Mobil 1 doesn’t contain any of the waxes that cause conventional oils to congeal in cold temperatures. As a result, synthetic oil makes starting easier and also prevent parts from running dry when a cold engine first starts. Synthetic oil also has higher film strength and stands up to high temperatures better than conventional oils. You’ll pay more for a quart for a full synthetic and you still have to change it as often as conventional oils, but you are giving your snow thrower engine the best chance for a long trouble free life.

If gas has been sitting in the carburetor since last season, The carburetor will need to be cleaned out and rebuilt. Some ports may be clogged up that allow gas to flow.

Is there a GENERIC Snow thrower for John Deere 110?


Two Stage - Snowblower - Snow thrower - Bercomac All of the Bercomac attachments are interchangeable on the same quick hitch mounting. Bolts on in minutes. What a great idea for people who have more than one tractor or buy a new one. No more having to go and buy all new attachments for the new small tractor, just buy a different model hitch kit if it doesn't use the same one. The resale value is preserved when you can sell your attachments to be used on another size or model lawn and garden tractor.
