Troy-bilt storm 2840 fuel line not getting fuel to carburetor

Getting the snow blower ready to use for the winter. Added new fuel, primed and tried to start. Engine doesn't fire. Primed again and it sounded like puffs of air. Removed fuel line from carburetor and no fuel comes out. Blow into the fuel line and there is no resistance. Like blowing through a straw. Any suggestions?

Gasoline brakes down over time. What happens all the things the facilities uses to make gas separates and you end up with all the bad stuff. You may need to remove fuel tank and clean it out plus the carb may need the same thing done to. If you have to clean the carb get a rebuild kit. It's easy to rebuild but you may need to take the carb with you so they can get the numbers of it to make sure you get the right kit.

Testimonial: "Thanks for the response. I went back to work on the machine and was able to remove a couple of the plates protecting the fuel line and carb. Turns out what I thought was the fuel line to the carb was actually the choke line! I found the fuel line from the tank and bled out all of the fuel from the tank. After adding fresh fuel, the darn thing cranked right up!"

Troy Bilt 3090 snowblower surges off choke, doesnt surge on choke, cleaned the carb, jets, float, drained tank, cleaned fuel filter, fresh gas, still surges. Could it be the governor or idle jet?l


you could try opening up the idle/mixture screw another turn to make the transmission from idle to throttle better
governors just open the throttle butterfly according to the spring tension setting from the throttle lever

Snow thrower starts then shuts down after a few minutes


Hmmm... THAT sounds like you have an obstruction (ice???) in the fuel line or in the bottom of the tank.
