Too hard to pull may indicate that it is hydrolocked. Fuel from the carb may have leaked into and filled the crankcase. Check the oil level and see if it is very very high. Watch out! The fuel makes the oil level very hard to see. If the oil is filled with gas than not being able to start is a good thing. The motor wont get enough protection from wear with that much gas watering it down! If the oil is watering down then drain it out and get some fresh oil. Make sure you turn off the gas between uses to prevent the carb from dumping fuel. Get the carb serviced to fix the problem too.

Concerning your starter/pull cord problem, what has probably happened is that due to sitting idle for an extended period, the pinion gear had stuck in the down position on the clutch drive.

When you engaged it with power it spun as it was supposed to do but did not immediately spin up into the ring gear.

After you released the starter button and it began to slow down the gear spun up into the flywheel and jammed because it didn't have enough power to turn the engine.

A usually simple fix for this is to turn the engine backward by hand just enough to relieve the tension and the return spring will push the gear back down.

At this point, you can try the electric starter again and it should work properly. If it does not work, you will have to remove the starter and clean and inspect the starter drive on the top of the starter.

Concerning the fact that it would not start, you more than likely have some old fuel trapped in the bottom of the float bowl.

You may be able to remedy this by spraying some carburetor cleaner in the carb while trying to start it.

If it has spark and everything else is in good condition, it will start and run as long as it has carb cleaner getting to the engine so you may need to spray it a few times while it is running on that and sometimes the stale fuel problem will clear itself.

If it doesn't clear up and run on its own without the carb cleaner after 3 or 4 shots of spray you will need to remove the float bowl and clean it and the main jet with the carb cleaner.

Protect your eyes and bare skin while using the carburetor cleaner, it will injure you. Do not spray it on any rubber gaskets or seals, it will swell and ruin them.

Sorry for the "book" I wrote but I am trying to explore as many possibilities as I can to get you up and snow blowing!

Yardworks snow blower


Leaks are normally from bad seals or ones put on engine wrong. Many snow blowers leak oil, very common. Electric start needs to be taken apart. Rust is problem most likely. When you engage the starter it kicks out the gear to turn over engine. Carefully remove the starter from engine, try to start starter an if the pinion gear does not kick out from starter disassembly it an try to clean rust away from action. Dont break wires around electric motor careful about getting dirt an rust in winding. Try to lube spring an moving parts around gear. One other thing it could be a sheared off gear on starter also.

We have a yardworks snowblower and when not using the wheels always lock up. how do you unlock them without turning on snowblower.


Had the same issue and found out that the wheels lock when the motor isn't running and the accelerator handle is engaged. I still had both handles tied down from transporting home and it rolled fine after they were untied. Hope that helps
