When I start my snowblower with full choke and go to turn choke down it dies
If you are using ethanol... DON'T!!! The symbol for Ethanol should be the middle finger. Ethanol ruins small engines because it leaves a corn residue in the bottom of you tank so when the engine is sucking fuel through the fuel lines it also sucks some of the residue with it. Because the lines are smaller in a snow blower that stuff can build up quick and it starves the engine of fuel. Kind of like how people have heart attacks. So there for you engine is needing less air and more fuel so that is why you have to have the choke on full all the time because the choke regulates the fuel to air ratio. If you are not using Ethanol the still check your gas lines because over time the lines dry up to the point they chip and crack. If it is chipped and cracked the fuel may slowly be leaking. Just because you can't see the leak does not mean it's not there. It could also make the pump struggle to create a suction because it would be sucking air so then again your engine would be struggling for fuel. Worst comes worst just take it to the shop to have the engine looked at. 50 bucks out of your pocket could last 10 years depending on the quality of the replacement parts.

You may simply need a new fuel cap,vacuum in the tank will rob your fuel and stall it engine,try taking off the fuel cap and see how it runs.If this does not help you may need a new fuel pump,which runs off of crank case pressure and should take over from the choke once the tractor has started.

SOURCE: snow blower won't stay running
ok heres what you do to get your snow blower to keep running.
while you have it choked, and you get it to the running point, turn the cup bowl ajustment in/out a fraction at a time while you move the chock off slowly till you get the right setting to keep it running then ajust the setting once more to clear it up to purrr like a kitten again the vibration moves the screw out to set everything out of wack......

had same problem with a small 2 cycle outboard motor last year. I had run it during the summer, put it away for the winter and when I went to fire it up the following Spring it would only run with half to full choke. Old fuel had gummed up the carburater by letting it sit in there for a few months, had to disassemble and clean all the carb parts (including the jets) and it worked good as new. You could do it yourself or take carb to a small engine repair shop and have them do it. May or may not require a rebuild kit depending on how gummed up it is. Hope this helps.
