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.

Ariens snowblower won't start


Did you drain the gas from last year? Gas is only good for a few Months. You should always run the machine dry at the end of the season or add Fuel Stabilizer at the end of the season. Id start by getting all the old gas out of the tank and the fuel Bowl on the carburetor. You will also want to check for spark. to make sure there are no electrical issues. Check oil level also. Depending on machine it may not start if oil level is to low alot of machines have a oil pressure switch.

After sitting for a week my new Ariens 22hp B&S won't start , no gas, tank full spark is good


Does it poot and ****? That's water in the gas.
You got spark - so no gas is correct, otherwise it would go - Maybe you have water in the tank and the carb. Gas tanks and gas cans **** it in nightly. Moisture condenses and falls to the bottom of the tank. Try a little
starting fluid spray in the air filter area,

Briggs & Stratton 11 horse snowblower engine pulsating


this i what my pressure washer does... I would say its just getting aged and you shouldnt have to worry about it, but if you want to try to get it to stop then give it a good tune up. spark plug air filter and clean the carb out with a small wire or tourch tip cleaner to make sure all the passages are clean and clear... or just let it keep doing it like I do.

Ariens 8.5 HP snowblower, 5 years old, recoil starter will not let me pull the rope out and the electric starter is not engageing, thoughts?


First I would take out the spark plug then try tugging on the rope. If no success take a ratchet and a deep well socket that fits the nut on the flywheel tighten and loosen the nut with out restricting the flywheel does the engine turn over? Does it move then stop after you loosen the nut? If it does then check the oil. If it is low or none in there then the motor froze up and needs replacement. If this was no help check in the shoot for obstructions like a newspaper stuck in the auger or the thrower.

Snowblower was running for 1 hr. i shut it off when i restarted it ran 1 minute and stoped could not get it started, it it sat for 6 hrs. and started but would not run at higher rpms. it seemed to sputter


Hi. And welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

From the symptoms you describe it sounds like the low oil sensor is shutting of the ignition.

i.e ran for 1 hour... hot oil... / low oil level ignition cut off. Sat for 6 hours all oil now in crankcase... started and higher rpm sputters....

Check the oil level. Other than that I think everything is fine.

If not please respond with a "make and model" of your snowblower. After that, there is more that we can do to resolve the problem.

Thanks for using FixYa!

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.
