One of two things will cause this. Either your piston rings have fried and your piston is stuck. The bearing on the flywheel is bad. Or actually one of thing, the crank shaft has broken. You willl need to take the motor apart all the way and see what is going on. If you take the flywheel off try to turn it by hand and see if you can turn it that wy. You also can try easier to check for first symptom is to make sure you are not in vapor lock. Remove the spark plug, turn unit upside down and see if you can get the motor to turn, if you can then replace the spark plug and it will start up. You can getvapor lock by running it low on fuel or the wrong fuel or running it to rich

How do I convert something from pull start to electric start?


Alvin:
If your machine is a pull start, it will not have teeth on the outside perimeter of the flywheel, so there is nothing there for the starter Bendix teeth to engage. Converting your machine to electric start would probably be economically unfeasible.

After it sits for a while the wheels will not turn and are stuck?


Hi William:
Snowblowers tend to get a lot of wet slushy use and if the are put away wet they can easily rust. Try to make sure all the mucky stuff is cleaned off (air hose works great) and spraying penetrating oil or WD-40 generously over all the moving bits except belts never hurts.

Our HMSK 80-110 electric start snowblower starts up right away, but the idling is very rough. It runs very smoothly when it is engaged in snow throwing.


The Tecumseh snow motors are notorious for idling rough. Especially the last few years of production. Most service techs just say "live with it" But there are a couple of things you can do to help.
It is not a carb adjustment issue. It's usually a fuel, clean carb issue.
First, use a premium grade fuel without ethanol and a fuel stabilizer. This will give you the best fuel mix.
Second, Remove the carburetor shield and clean the inside and outside of the carb with carb cleaner. Even though you can't see the carb usually, they do get varnish build up and cleaning it will help some.
Third, Put the recommended amount of fuel system cleaner in the gas. I use Sea Foam brand. Over a tank full or two you will notice a difference in how the engine idles.
Fourth, Use a high quality spark plug and use a new one every year. Make sure the gap is correct.
Good Luck! Feel free to as any other questions you may have. Don't forget to rate this answer!
