Question about Ariens Garden

My Ariens snowblower (model #924048) won't start

It won't start now. It ran for about an hour a week back. Spark plug and oil are okay. If I spray 'Gumout' into the carburetor after removing the cover it starts and runs for two seconds and then dies. Everytime I spray Gumout it does the same thing. Is this something I can fix it myself/

    Hi chennindirar, Check that your fuel has not been sitting so long it has deteriorated. Try draining it and replacing it with fresh issue. We had this with a chainsaw. Regards, Dave Bisset

Dissamble carburator. Spray Carburator cleaner  through passages, and wash out bowl. Dump gasoilne if old.  Reassemble Carburator. PS count the turns on the two Jet (mixing) screws and place back into the same position after cleaning passages.

Why I have a toro snowblower model#38272 that started a couple weeks ago and now will not start


Check wires for insulation damage. Spray Carb Starter Fluid into manifold and see if that gets the machine to turn over.

I have a 1984 ariens snowblower with a Tecumseh and no spark


Electronic Ignition was introduced on many engines about that time frame. I would need to have model and type numbers from the engine to fully determine that question. However, have spark is still the issue. If the unit has a switch installed on the operator's console, it should be disconnected at the engine so that any safety switches are not masking or causing a problem that is not engine related.

Let's investigate a few basics first.

a) How have you determined that there is no spark?
b) Have you used a type of spark tester?
c) What is the condition of the plug. Brown or dark brown is OK. Black or silver is NOT Ok.
*If you do not have a spark tester,
a) remove the plug, and with it connected to the wire,
b) find a portion of metal around the cylinder that you can ground it on, and then pull the rope.
c) If the plug is black, you may see spark, but you should replace the plug.
*** PLEASE NOTE ; if there is excess fuel in the cylinder or on spark plug, it can catch fire, so be carefull to cover the hole with a heavy rag so that any fuel cannot be exposed to spark plug durning test !!!!

Get back with me on how this issue works out.
thanks, rwvanlue

Brand new Ariens ST624e seized after 15 minutes of operation?


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