Carb is dumping! Get a service kit with a new float, needle and seat and install. Can be done with basic tools and mechanical abilities. You can look up the carb type online for specific instructions.

Poulan snowblower won't start; it backfires and sometimes starts but only lasts a few minutes if lucky; I've replaced spark plug and gas.....no luck


Gotta take the Bowl off the carburetor and see if the Jet is Plugged up.
Today's Ethanol gas ills carburetors. New gas wont help a gummed up carb from leftover old gas.

Not getting any gas


Most people leave gas in the tank year round. This is a problem for engines that are only used a few months out of the year. Old gas will cause the carb to gum up and not allow gas to pass thru into the combustion chamber.

You will need to pull the carburetor part and clean it.

check out this YouTube video. It shows how to clean a single stage snowblower carb

John Deere Snowblower 1032 won't start. Obvious solution?


First dump the old gas and put in fresh. Clean or replace spark plug.
Put a squirt of starting fluid in the carb. If it fires the ignition system is good. Do this a few times because there is still old gas in the float bowl and fuel line. When the fresh gas gets to the carb it will stay running. If it did not fire with starting fluid the points and condensor will need to be replaced and maybe the coil.

Craftsman snowblower will not kick over


Old gas? Did you pull out the spark plug and see if you have a spark? If the gas is old, drain the tank and line to the carburator, then put in fresh gas. Never put it up for the summer with gas in it. Run it until the engines runs out of fuel, then put it away.

If there's no spark, then you have a coil issue.

C950-52474-6 snowblower starts but don't stay ignited


Many small engine problems such as you described are fuel related. In today's world, most of our gasolines are blended with ethanol and thus gasoline shelf life has been reduced to 4-6 months. It is important that after each season's use you be certain to run the snowblower until all gasoline in the tank and carburetor have been used - effectively running the snowblower out of gas. If you did't do that last season the "old" gasoline in the carburetor has began to gum up and will not let the carburetor mix fuel and air properly. The solution will be to remove, disassemble and clean the carburetor. It is likely the gas tank will also need to be drained, removed, and cleaned. If you are unable to do this you will need to take to a qualified small engine mechanic in your area.

Lastly and, very importantly, make certain when you are ready to use your repaired snowblower that you use FRESH gasoline. And, remember the first part of this discussion at the end of the season.

Gas leak from valve to pool heater


Leak is probably at a connection, unless pipe is ruptured.

Use soap and put soapy water over each connection and look for bubbles in the soap.

If gas line was put in after sidewalk was poured, then there will not be a connection under sidewalk.
Buy gas detector, but cheap one may not work well especially in wind.

Toro powerlite snowblower sputters out after 10-15 minutes


I would change the spark plug and be sure to gap it as per your owner's manual. I would also clean or change the air filter. I would also use only high test gas and the oil recommended by the manufacturer. good luck.
