Question about Poulan Pro 22" Self Propelled High Wheel Mower
I have a poulanpro 9 hp 30'' snowblower. It is two years old. When I start it, it begins to die right away. I can keep it running by pushing the primer and keeping the choke on. As soon as I take the choke off, it shuts off.
You will have to remove the fuel bowl from bottom of carburetor and clean the varnish out of the carburetor.Take note that the screw on the bottom of the carburetor is a fuel metering jet,there are small passages in it that may need to be cleaned out with a small wire,be careful not to enlarge the holes in it,they are important for fuel metering correctly.You may have to soak it in carb cleaner. Be sure to use good carb cleaner. The brand name Berkebile 2+2 is the best followed by Gumout.

Fuel Starvation - Float Bowl Carburetor
1) remove air filter assembly
*be cautious of tearing the mounting gasket. If it does tear, you HAVE to replace it. It is part of the priming system
2) remove the float bowl fastener. This is the main jet
3) carefully remove the float bowl, the rubber o-ring/gasket will not be able to be used if it is removed, you WILL have to replace it
4) using a spray 'carb cleaner'
spray up thru the center of the carburetor
spray and clean the main jet with cleaner and 'tag' wire
(tag wire is very thin, and can be used to clean the hole in the center of the main jet)
5) clean any debris from inside the bowl or carb body
6) re-install bowl and center bolt, air filter assembly
*if you need gaskets, your Briggs dealer can supply. The kit is cheaper than individual gaskets, and all the parts needed to finish the above repair are in the kit.

This is a common problem with snow blowers becuase they set around more then they get used and the gas gets stale and cloggs up the carb. First thing to try is remove the bolt that holds the carb bowl on and clean it. It should have 1 or 2 holes through the side close to the bottem and 1 hole about half way up. If this doesn't do the trick you need to remove the whole carb disassemble and soak it in carb cleaner.

Hi and welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly.
What has happened is that there is debris in the Jet orifice in bottom of the carb. You will have to remove the float bowl by removing the 4 mounting screws and the bowl nut.
Once you have the bowl off the Jet / Orifice is located in the very bottom of the carb. It will be recessed about 3/8 inch inside the ventrui. It is BRASS. It can be removed with a flat bladed screwdriver. When you get the jet out hold it up to the light. You should see a pinhole in it. No light.. JET is clogged. Just clean it and reinstall it.
After you have cleaned the jet... take a look at the bowl nut. There are 2 holes in the side of the nut assy that must also be clear. Before you re-install the float bowl turn on the gas and gently lift the float \ensuring that fuel flow stops. Then as you let the float down it should pass fuel.
If you do not have fuel flow at this point then check the gas tank outlet for obstructions. Once you have established fuel flow reinstall the float bowl, nut and mounting screws.
It should work just fine after this.
A word to the wise.... DO NOT disconnect any linkages unless you have to...! Take a digital picture of the link connections BEFORE you remove them. Thrust me you will be glad you did!
Thanks for using FixYa,
