2 year old bolens premium snowblower won't start. Never used.

Got the machine about two years ago brand new. Started at that itme. but no snow, so did not use for 2 winters. Sat in garage, now trying to start and it would not. Put fuel stabilizer last summer but did not try to start it at that time. did the spark plug test and look good. Primer does not seem to be spraying fuel. Just heaing sound of air and not smelling any fuel when prmer is pressed 4 to 6 times..

pull the flywheel and check if the key(latter models the flywheel itself will need replaced if stripped)is damaged. This is a possibility.

This sounds too easy of a solution but I had a like ptroblem with my Craftsman. I loosed the gas cap a bit and the rough running and stalling stopped. he vent on the gas cap that contains a turn over interrupt valve was plugged causing the gas not to flow. I took the cap apart and cleaned out the vent hole though cleaning the holewith a paper clip would have worked as well. fixed my problem. I think my dirty hands of deris deposited the matera in the vent hole when filling with gas.

you carburator just needs to be cleaned/adjusted, and if your original fuel filter isnt clogged and looks clean, leave it, but the air filter is a good idea to change at least once a year (grass shavings covered filters dont help the engine much).

SOURCE: J.D.x300 tractor 8 months old will not start. It

ok a couple of things to try 1 try using starter fluid in carburetor 2 second spritz and crank does it fire or pop? if yes then there is spark, if not then pull spark plug and put new one and try again, if no then leave spark plug out of engine and lay on engine with wire connected and look for spark( do in shade to see better. if no spark then coil if bad. if it does fire on starter fluid, check gas filter and air cleaner it may be too lean or rich to fire properly.

I started this snowblower in the summer and it worked fine...both winters I've tried to use it it won't start. The first year I had it it worked very well.

So you are saying it wont run in the cold. Will it run if you left it in the house until you wanted to use it?
Are you going thru the procedure of Choking the engine ? Is there a Primer Bulb that you have to push on this machine?
I'm just saying that engines don't like the cold to begin with, just make sure you are going thru the 'Cold Start' procedure properly.

Snowblower won't start this year. Machine

Did you run the engine for about 15 minutes after you added the fuel conditioner? If not then the conditioner didn't get into the carburetor and you probably will need to take it apart and clean it again. The ethanol in today's fuel causes problems in carbs that sit

Tecumseh 8hp snow blower. Hi started the snowblower this year for the first time with no problems. The oil was changed and the level was fine. I cleared the driveway and after about an hour turned it

not sure i understand you correctly but if it turns over to a spot and stops. it is on the compression stroke. that means the valves are out of adjustment. reset the valve clearances and it should be as good as new. or take the spark plug out and see if when you try to start it it shoots out gas out the exhaust that means you have a bad needle or seat in the carburetor. it will need to have a kit put in it. it is easy to do and cheap.
