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

Two stage snow blowers all tend to have sheer pins
I would suspect that the holes seen in the picture are for the sheer pin, check with club cadet, figure same as auger pins, if so feel for the hole with your finger then inser a short nail till you feel a rough spot then tap with a hammer till it comes out, otherwise you have to take the mess apart completely.

Yes there are 2 belts one for the drive and one for the auger. If you remove the cover on top that is located between the engine and the auger housing you can check the belts. The auger belt has come off the pulley or is broken. Hope this helps you out. Best regards and good luck.

the impeller is held on the shaft with roll pins, perhaps they have sheared off. try to turn the impeller by hand (with engine off) if it turns and nothing else does, look for some cross holes there should be 1 or 2. A good hardware store will have replacements. Use a punch with a blunt end to knock out the pieces that are left, and take them for sizing the replacements. Good luck CB

Snow blower gets bogged down in snow.


It sounds like your engine is running lean, see if you can adjust the high throttle mixture on the carburetor (if possible at all). If there is no adjustment possible, it may be the carb is clogged and needs some service. Try cleaning it or find a new replacement carb for it.
