Can't get my new snow thrower started

I just bought a ZLST401Q, Fushi, chinese manufactured snow thrower.
Its a single stage unit. I have followed the manufacture's directions for starting but can't seem to get it to start.

If the engine has a float type carburetor, remove the float cover and see if the float is hung in the down position. If so free it up and make sure it will now operate freely up and down. If not and the bowl is full of crud, you will have to remove and clean the carb.

prolly have to replace it, but you can try spraying P.B. lubricant on either end where the cable enters the jacket and working the cable back and forth untill it frees up; this has worked in the past for me on all sorts of jacketed cables, BE PATIENT AND ALLOW THE LUBE TO DO IT'S JOB, if you try to force it you could end up causing more damage to other components

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A SINGLE STAGE SNOW BLOWER VS A DUAL OR MULTI STAGE SNOW THROWER


Single stage has one rotating blade that collects and exhausts via upper shoot.


26373343-4yt0j151ox44pteg2g1nkeph-2-0.jpg Two stage has one blade for gathering into the center and a second that exhausts via shoot.


The two stage works best!!

Snow thrower not throwing snow far enough


Your belt is probably slipping Is your snowblower a single stage or dual stage?
If it is single stage, there are normally multiple holes that you can put the engagement cable into on the lever. If so, move the cable to a hole that is further away, so the lever pulls the cable further. If it's already in the furthest hole, it's time for a new belt.
If you have a dual stage blower, the adjustment is usually made at the idler pulley, found under the belt cover.
