First i would check engine compression. It will change once it gets hot and cause you to use more choke until finaly it wont run.and if that is okay i would rebuild the carburator. A rule i use in my shop is to always check compression first then go from there.

I have a Craftsman Snow Thrower model # 247.881731. At the end of last year I drained the gas as recommended in the manual, this year I filled it with fresh gas and it now has a problem starting. I pu


Draining the gas from the tank doesn't drain the float bowl in the carburetor. It still had last year's gas in it. Gas will start to turn to varnish if left sitting 6 to 12 months. You'll probably have to remove the carburetor, disassemble it and clean it out with Gumout carb cleaner or some similar product.
When you get it running and the snow's over and done with, put some Stabil in the gas tank to prevent the gas from converting to varnish and then start it up and run it until that stabilized gas is through the carburetor and into the engine. You can leave it with the treated gas in the tank.

Runs for 10 minutes and stops


When running is the idle smooth or up and down?
Is the chock operating, or adjusted after the motor gets warm?
Is the carburetor needle adjusted after the engine idles to warm as it should be to be set correctly.
Are you blowing snow when it dies or at idle?

Around the back of the engine, just below the cylinder cooling fins. The shut off should face you if standing in front of the recoil starter, for the fuel tank. The fuel line should wrap around I the side of the carb and be protected by the metal cover surrounding it.

Try draining all the old fuel out of the fuel system. Fill the tank backup but add a little "seafoam" gas additive to help clean out the system while running.

Your snowblower carburator is gummed up. Go to an auto parts store and get a can of a carb. cleaner called seafoam. Follow the directions as far as how much to put into the snowblower gas tank. Run it for a few minutes and it will clear up. Regards, Joe

Snow thrower won't stay running


Replace the spark plug being sure to use the plug recommended in your owner manual, and the gap recommended. Then clean or replace the air filter. Finally use high test, new gasoline. Not gas that has been sitting around for months. good luck
