First take the carb off of the engine and then remove the bowl, carefully take the float off paying special attention to the needle and how it is attached to the float. Next, lightly blow air into the fuel inlet while holding your finger over the spot where the needle goes in. Use a bread tie with the paper scraped off. Stick the wire through the pick up tube at the bottom of the carb. Find any other holes and probe those holes with the wire. Then thoroughly wash the entire carb with carb cleaner then blow the whole carb off. Then put the float and needle back in making sure that when putting the bowl back on that it seats tightly all the way around the rubber gasket. Also, just before you put the bowl on turn the carb upside down to see if the float is sitting level. If it is put the bowl on, If not then the spot where the needle sits on the float has to be bent one way or the other just a little until the float sits level. After the bowl is put in place, the nut that holds the bowl on the threaded area should have two possibly three holes plus the hole down the center, probe all holes with the wire. put everything back on the motor and try again. If it still won't run then you will need a carb kit.

You likely have it in one wheel drive,try lifting the rear wheals of the ground to check and see if both wheels tirn at the same speed.If they don't then you need to change the wheel that is not turning into a drive wheel by removing the pin and putting it back in in the lock position[usually the next hole back in the axle].

SOURCE: I have a Craftsman 9hp snowblower and it is not

It is belt driven, the belt is located between the chute and the engine behind the inspection cover some have it on the top and some on the bottom.That model may have to be split in half to get the belt past the shaft.But regardless it can at least be inspected by taking the cover off.Please let me know if this helps

Craftsman Snowblower Won't Start


If you did not put gas stabilizer in your fuel tank when you stored your machine the gas will turn into varnish. Try draining the gas and put new gas and try to start it. Good luck

How do I chamnge the oil in my Craftsman lawn


There should be a pipe OR quick release valve coming out the right side at the bottom of the engine where it bolts to the frame. Most of the Craftsman riders I have worked on, had a long pipe with an elbow at the end of it and a plug in the bottom of the elbow for draining. Turn the wheels all the way to the left to allow enough room for a collection pan. It holds less than 2 quarts so the pan doesn't need to be too large
