If I buy an Amana Chipper, does it come with a warranty?

All new products should come with a warranty. When I bought my chipper it had a 1 year labor and parts warranty. On the amazon site it says that the product comes with a limited lifetime guarantee, so it's good to check the small print.

I have a mtd chipper shredder that's been idle for years. I have new spark plug, gas & oil. Air filter is clean. Any other tips to get it fired up?

The unit could possibly have carburetor issues after being idle for so long. For a start, add maybe some solvent to the fuel to attempt varnish removal in the carb without taking it off the engine. I suggest using a dose of the Chem Tool Berryman B-12 in your fuel mix. It is pretty strong and if you are lucky, it will enable the engine to run. If not, carb removal and rebuild will probably be required.

Hi, I'm almost sure that if it sat that long that your fuel has turned to varnish and you will have to clean out the whole fuel system including carburetor with a good solvent before you will get it to run. This is assuming that you have spark to the plug

MTD yardman chipper wont start get spark need manual

I am successful too at using the starting fluid in the carb or directly into the clinder. That is how I start my MTD 5.5hp chipper. My problem is I have to hold down the primer bulb to keep it running. If not, the engine will stall.
