If it's a 4 stroke engine, i would say you have a valve problem.

My snowblower won't start

the carb is probably clogged up. Sounds like you are fairly handy... carefully remove it, keeping track of how it comes off so you can put it back on.

Soak it good in degreaser to disolve the gas deposits.
Then rinse it good with carb cleaner.
Then re-install it

I've had to do this to my line trimmer and my snowblower in recent years.

Craftsman electric start snowblower wont start

That's refreshing! You've already done a lot of the work!
First, try regapping it at about .040, see if it starts there. If not, check compression.

Does it generate any spark at all? Try it with a screwdriver instead of the spark plug. If none, track back to the magneto - also check any shutoff wiring at the magneto.

Um... you DID put fresh gas INTO it, right? 8) If you take the bowl off temporarily, does gasoline drain freely from the bottom of the carburetor?

Poulan snowblower won't start; it backfires and sometimes starts but only lasts a few minutes if lucky; I've replaced spark plug and 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.
