    Thanks for the advice. However it is to cold for me to work on anything right now. At 07:30 this morning it was 10 degrees, now at 08:30 it is down to zero and falling.

    Thanks again, Lee

SOURCE: Sears Snowthrower/Blower won't start

First try removing the float bowl a lot of times water gets in to the carb and won't allow the machine to start, while you are at it you might as well drain the old gas out of the tank be sure if there is a gas valve or petcock it is allowing the fuel to flow to the carb and the gas flows out through the nedle and seat, when you remove the carb's float bowl gas should leak out fairly quickly confirming proper gas flow. Also be sure the choke is operating properly, the only other thing it may be is perhaps a clogged float chamber vent clean the carb with gum out and reassemble. All these things I have described if done properly should bring the old beast back to life.

One of your safety switches are not being operated. There is one on the seat, one on the brake, one on the mower deck and some have them on the clutch. But check to make sure that they are all making.

Sounds like it has a broken spring on the starter.

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.

Recoil starter assembly


If you can post the engine make, model and serial number I can get a diagram for you. They are usually stamped in the engine housing. Start by removing bolts to remove cover and check spring. If spring is good you should be able to rewind. You will need to cut rope by handle and pull rope up between spindle and inner housing, rewind rope in direction of pull. Let it rewind while holding tip of rope. When satisfied with tension, push end of rope back through hole in cover and reattach handle. This can be tricky. I am thinking of posting a video of this procedure. Let me know if you have more question's.Good luck.

The drive shaft moves and causes my pulley to rub on the drive shaft housing on my 42" Simplicity MFG 1691522 snowthrower


if it's a simplicity then chances are good you have worn out the bearing shimms inside motor housing and it's allowing the shaft to move more , if you want to save it you'll need to open up motor housing and pull pullys off shaft and add new schimms ,bearings too would not hurt to replace, don't forget to replace the housing gaskets with new .

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.
