Question about Electrical Supplies

1 Answer

I bought a Sears Craftsman snow blower: model 247.887791 3 years ago, used it that winter, then let it set unused for 2 years with gas in it. I knew I have a fuel problem. I drained the gas tank, it was clean, I still washed it out with carb cleaner. I took off the float bowl, light corrosion and rust, removed the float pin, here's my problem. The NEEDLE VALVE, I thought it would just fall out, I grabbed the brass end that fits in the float slot with hemostats and gently pulled, no go. How do you remove it? I can make forked tool to pull it out by the head on the needle valve without damaging the plastic tangs on the float. Thanks don't want to Buy a carb.

Before you go further , check that a neeld is available from a mowers spares
the needle should have a spring loaded section that the float tangs connect to that fits inside the needle body
that allows for vibrations in the float area to maintain constant fuel level
just use needle nose pliers and pull the needle from the housing
it is probably corroded in or the rubber seat on the needle has stuck to the seat

SOURCE: kohler motor starts then carb loads up with gas

If the engine is running rough then this could mean that you have weak spark or valve adjustment. When an engine runs rough it will not burn all the fuel, which will create excess fuel in the air cleaner housing. Also, make sure the the float is closing in the carberator.

SOURCE: wont start. put. gas in carb runs two minutes

If the engine has not been run in a while & it still has the same fuel in it, then it is most likely the needle valve.

I just bought a Sears snow thrower, I put in oil and gas went to start it but the pull cord will not pull up. I then tried the electric starter but it just made a grinding sound. Why won t it start?


Check the crankcase and make sure it has oil. It sounds like the engine is frozen. If its brand new, take it back to Sears and have them start it for you.

The model number of your snow blower is actually 247.886640. That's why nobody else could figure where to get your manual.
Here is the link to the manual:
