Question about Craftsman Snow Blower 26 In. 208CC Dual-Stage
Runs on choke why, and is there any carburator adjustments for this model besides idle
I recently had a couple of Tecumseh motors doing the same thing. Mine was just a carb adjustment, the jet was turned in way to lean so adding choke would help it suck in fuel. I would run it with the choke on, then back out the screw on on the carb til it runs a little rough, then reduce the choke. Do that same thing until it is running good with the choke off. Doing this will greatly increase your power when the motor is under a load.

The engine is running on choke because the jets are probably clogged in the carburetors.Some of the newer carburators have very little in the way of adjustment and it is usually cheaper to replace the whole carbthan to try and fix it. Tip : Always use premium gas with no ethanol in any small engine. Ethanol blend gas has ruined more small engines than I can remember. Especially ones that sit for an extended period of time ( like a snow blower). I also recommend add Stabil or Seafoam or any good quality fuel stabilizer to the fuel tank of all small engines. Hope this helps.
