Try adding a little (few ounces) of sea foam to the gas tank and then running it for an hour or so.
if this doesn't cure it, you may need to take the carburetor apart and clean it.
your symptoms are typical of dirty jets (not enough fuel/ too much air)

SOURCE: Ariens 926LE snowblower won't engage

First thing I would check is to make sure the traction drive belt didn't fall off or break. To do this remove the plastic shroud between the engine and the snow chute. The traction belt is the one closest to the engine.If it isn't broke Make sure it is on the upper and lower pulleys.

SOURCE: mtd pro snow blower runs then die

it sounds to me like either the oil pressure switch is being plugged after startup and causint the engine to quit then the plug settles until you start it again and it plugs again easiest way to test is to take the swith and remove the wire to it and see if the engine starts and keeps running, if so then replace the old pressure switch. If this does not solve the problem then the only other thing I can think of is the needle valve is partially pluged, at startup the fuel bowl is full and the engine startsbut after starting the fuel bowl runs low on fuel as it is not filling fast enough and the engine stalls. By the time you try starting it again the fuel bowl is filled again and the whole thing starts all over. Hope This Helps Don

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: my ariens snowblower only works in the choke

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.

Have to full Choke to run snowblower


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.

Try lowering the choke all the way below Turtle Speed. With any luck this will shut the snowblower off.

Your snowblower carburator is gummed up. Go to an auto parts store and get a can of a carb. cleaner called seafoam. Follow the directions as far as how much to put into the snowblower gas tank. Run it for a few minutes and it will clear up. Regards, Joe

How can you start a Ariens 824 snowblower


Ignition key on, throttle three quarters on, full choke, press primer 3 or 4 times, pull cord. Should cough, maybe start and run rough, then as it's chugging, turn choke to half, then quarter choke, let it warm up slightly, then choke off.

Jacobsen snowblower that will only run with the choke on full.


1. Check the fuel line for cracks/breaks. If it is o.k., then:

2. You willneed to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner.

3. Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb., including the jet. These portals can become blocked.

4. You may need to change the diaphragm while you are in there.

5. Reassemble the carburetor.

6. Make sure the air breather is clean.

If you need further assistance, let me know.

Engine keeps flooding out


Recommend completely draining the fuel system. Tank, lines, and carb. Make sure everything is clean and dry. Clean or replace fuel filter. Always try to store it with a full tank of fuel. It is common to get condensation when the weather goes from warm to cold and back.
