Remove the recoil cover and check the coil for proper gap (use a buisines card between tne coil and the magnets on the flywheel it should be snug but not to snug you cant get the card in between) if that is to tight you will have to adjust it, if it is ok than disconnect the ground wire and check for spark, if still no spark than your coil is no good, if you have spark than check the ground wire for a bare spot cause it is grounding out some where. also check the throttle shut off wire that it is not contacting metal when throttle is up and if it has a key that the wire there isn't cotacting metal also. Please let me know how you make out and if we have to check further.

Auger blades are spinning

sound like you might have 2 problems. If auger doesn't engage in heavy snow you probably just have ice accumulation inside the impeller. Dont try to engage until impeller is cleared of snow (shut off and unplug spark plug before cleaning) Second if blades are spinning than you must have hit something in your path and broke the shear bolt (about 2 bucks at hardware shop) remove the old bolt and replace it and it should work again if this is the problem. Good luck.

I overfilled engine oil in my Briggs Straton engine on my snow thower ... now can't get it started .... can oil foul the spark plug ?

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly. Depending on just how much you over-filled it yes it will fowl the spark plug. Most of the time though a small engine failing to start is either fuel or ignition related. Remove the spark plug and check for ign. spark and OIL in the cylinder by pulling the recoil through. Reinstall the spark plug (Just a note about an oil fouled spark plug.... if you clean it with fuel you must make sure that it is dry or it will not work. Spark plugs are cheap I recommend you buy a new one.
Try removing the air filter and adding just a small splash of gas into the carb. throat. then see if it tries to start. If it does but does not run you have a fuel supply problem. This is caused by debris in the carb bowl and fuel orifice jet. You will need to clean out the bottom of the carb and the orifice. Possibly there is debris in the fuel tank outlet, the fuel filter or fuel bowl below the fuel selector depending on your engine model. .I can help you with carb / fuel system cleaning procedures but would like a "complete" ENGINE model - type - and serial number so I can pass you the procedures applicable to YOUR engine.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

My yard master 5.5 horse power snow blower isn't blowing snow I have changed belts, spark plug, share pins all fine. Starts on first pull as soon as i hit snow it bogs down and stops. Main auger turns fine...

Assuming that you mean that the engine bogs down, try increasing the main jet setting by turning the screw CCW (looking at the outer end of the screw) somewhat. If no help, the carburetor may need cleaning to allow more fuel to the engine. Make sure the muffler and fuel filter aren't plugged. Hope this helps!

We have a snow king 5hp/22'' mtd snow blower that we cant get started. We have cleaned the spark plugs but it seems the fuel is not getting to the plugs to ignite the engine. is there a particular position...

key on choke it..start.

see if your getting spark first...if you are most likely you have a dirty carb and it needs cleaned well (build up from old gas will make them gummed up and not work at all). try that and then try to start again
