Replace spark plug with a new NGK plug... Also check fuel cap vent to see it it's plugged, try loosing the gas cap a run it, if it stays running, you'll need a new gas cap.

SOURCE: CRAFTSMAN SNOW THROWER DRIVE WHEELS WILL NOT MOVE

well if it is a walk behind style it could be the drive is out of adjustment, also craftsman were famous for the cable mounts bending and that will throw them out of adjustment. follow the traction drive linkage down to the base of the blowe and there should be an adjustment, or it will be under the belt gaurd or even on the handle on some.

I have a 26 in craftsman snow thrower brand new engine runs erratically hunting


The choke does not have to be all the way open on a snow blower engine. The choke control has notches or steps for that reason. With the engine running adjust the choke one notch at a time until it smooths out. Once the engine warms up you may have to adjust the choke a notch or two to keep it running smoothly.

My craftsman snow thrower runs for about15 minutes before it requires more chock until it finally cannot run. Why is this happening


First i would check engine compression. It will change once it gets hot and cause you to use more choke until finaly it wont run.and if that is okay i would rebuild the carburator. A rule i use in my shop is to always check compression first then go from there.

3600+/- 20rpm. That's the top end, I'd say idle should be between 1200 and 1500, but I don't know what model motor it is. I'm assuming its a Tecumseh snow king engine

Around the back of the engine, just below the cylinder cooling fins. The shut off should face you if standing in front of the recoil starter, for the fuel tank. The fuel line should wrap around I the side of the carb and be protected by the metal cover surrounding it.

Your snowblower carburator is gummed up. Go to an auto parts store and get a can of a carb. cleaner called seafoam. Follow the directions as far as how much to put into the snowblower gas tank. Run it for a few minutes and it will clear up. Regards, Joe

Snow thrower won't stay running


Replace the spark plug being sure to use the plug recommended in your owner manual, and the gap recommended. Then clean or replace the air filter. Finally use high test, new gasoline. Not gas that has been sitting around for months. good luck
