Gotta take the Bowl off the carburetor and see if the Jet is Plugged up.
Today's Ethanol gas ills carburetors. New gas wont help a gummed up carb from leftover old gas.

    Thanks wadingriver. I actually believe I've located the problem....as you noted, I found a burn mark on the white mesh covering over the wires to the Run/Stop switch. I wrapped the wires with electrical tape.......problem solved.

Hi, Michael and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery, should have 12.5 volts or better and be able to pass a load test if necessary.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage check for spark leakage in the dark.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.

Have a Poulan PR208 Stormforce snowblower that quits after 2 or 3 minutes.


Chcek stuck or loose choke flaps and integrity of carb manifold gasket. Check the ignition coil cable (connected to the spark plug). The kill switch wires should not any crack that may touch the chassis ground.

Hi, Anonymous and the usual suspects are:
1. Severely discharged or a damaged battery should have 12.5 volts or more and be able to pass a proper "LOAD" test if necessary, you may have a preliminary reading of 12.5 volts or more but little or zero amperage the battery is faulty and must be replaced, AGM batteries fail in this scenario more so than lead acid batteries.
2. Check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
3. Faulty main circuit breaker and or connections.
4. Faulty ignition coil and or connections.
5. Faulty spark plug, oil or gas fouled, wrong heat range or service type, wrong gap, loose in the cylinder head, broken electrode or insulator.
6. Faulty spark plug cables, leaking or broken, internal damage check for spark leakage in the dark.
7. Faulty ignition module, switch, CKP, MAP, CMP, sensor and or any connector in the ignition circuit could have corroded, loose, or broken pins/sockets
8. Burnt exhaust valve or air leak in the exhaust system.

How to start the snowblower yard machine when you've tried everything to start it up correctly and it doesn't start?


How did you store it? The gas should be drained out of the carburator and tank prior to storing. If you don't do that it starts varnishing the jets closed in the carburator. So to start it, try draining all the old gas out. Take the spark plug out and put the wire back on and lay it on top of the block. Crank the engine over turn switch on if it has one, does it have spark? If it does good. If not try a new plug, if it still does not have spark you will have to pull the flywheel to see what is wrong with the points or pickup. Once you have spark established, put new fuel in tank. Spray a little WD40 into spark plug hole. Put spark plug back in and go through normal starting procedures. Good luck.

Have craftsman chain saw, runs ok for a few minutes then dies. found broken gas line.replaced fuel line,air filter,spark plug, checked muffler, also mixed fresh gas.eng acts like its out of gas. leave it...


The plugged vent gets my vote. Loosen the fuel cap when it starts to starve.
