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.

Hello I have a craftsman 123cc single stage 4 cycle snow thrower. . Motor runs great with a little choke. When I put choke off it runs high and low. The spring linkages are moving back and forth


pull the carby and clean out the jets and passages
the carby cannot produce a constant air/f;ow mixture unless the choke is on and the governor is having difficulty keeping the engine speed constant

Start snow blower runs for 3 min. and starts to over heat checked oil its ok then stats to shut down like its not geting oil


Why do you say its over heating .Runs for 3 minutes the oil is OK .
Do you understand how the choke works .
bacsicly you prime the mechine in cold condutions 3-4 pumps choke to max throttle at 3 /1/4 .
Start backing off the choke after 3-to4 mins .
The choke shuts the fresh flow down to the engine in cold condutions ware it needs more fuel then air to run.
When the engine starts to get hot it can't run with out fresh air to mix with the gas it won't run anymore because there is to much gas and not enough air
Its simple fool prof will work everytime if you adjust it right

Toro snowthrower 38180 won't start


You have probably fouled the spark plug (got a heap of black carbon on it) remove the spark plug wash in some petrol then use a wire brush vigorously brush between the contact points on the plug then reinstall. & lastly don't forget to push in the choke when you get it fired up next time.??

Snow blower won't stay running


ok heres what you do to get your snow blower to keep running.
while you have it choked, and you get it to the running point, turn the cup bowl ajustment in/out a fraction at a time while you move the chock off slowly till you get the right setting to keep it running then ajust the setting once more to clear it up to purrr like a kitten again the vibration moves the screw out to set everything out of wack......
