Is there an adjusting screw on the carb? If so turn to the left a little at a time and see if that corrects it.

C950-52474-6 snowblower starts but don't stay ignited


Many small engine problems such as you described are fuel related. In today's world, most of our gasolines are blended with ethanol and thus gasoline shelf life has been reduced to 4-6 months. It is important that after each season's use you be certain to run the snowblower until all gasoline in the tank and carburetor have been used - effectively running the snowblower out of gas. If you did't do that last season the "old" gasoline in the carburetor has began to gum up and will not let the carburetor mix fuel and air properly. The solution will be to remove, disassemble and clean the carburetor. It is likely the gas tank will also need to be drained, removed, and cleaned. If you are unable to do this you will need to take to a qualified small engine mechanic in your area.

Lastly and, very importantly, make certain when you are ready to use your repaired snowblower that you use FRESH gasoline. And, remember the first part of this discussion at the end of the season.

Engine will not run/tecumseh enginelstall once it starts/hsk model


I assume this is on a snowblower?

Be sure you have fresh fuel.

You can also remove the bowl on the carb and spray carb cleaner in any orfice you see.

Always store a snowblower with fuel stabilizer in it. Otherwise it the fuel can "varnish" the inside of the carb and cause problem.

If it still doesn't start check compression.

Backfire Tecumseh Generator


To maybe convert your Flamethrower back to a generator, Make sure the fuel line is a good quality thick rubber material (like OEM )since it passes through the engine,HEAT is a issue, if it has been modified to steel, or it's thin rubber, it will overheat the fuel on its way to the carb and cause backfires after the engine warms up , ( vaporizing gas and pressure bypassing the jets flooding the engine) I use 1/4 inch Goodyear sold at Autozone , one of very few name brand quality parts you can get there. The other possible cause is carbon deposits built up on the leading edge of the valve not allowing the valve to close all the way, just clean the valve, it is caused by too lean or rich carb setting or clogged jets, if it is a newer style carb with a pink main jet then debris in this area will always cause backfire, check and make sure the old tiny O-ring on this jet is not still in the bottom of the shaft, people forget to pull them out all the time or give up trying to pull them out, I use a paper clip and bend the end 1/8 of a inch @ 90 degrees to fish hook it out of there, CLEAN THE SHAFT with carb cleaner and a Q-tip.... A Tecumseh engine will always backfire if the carb or airflow is not perfect and sealed tight !!!!!! it looks simple to rebuild the carb but you must take your time and look close, clean it very well, make sure the jet is SEATED properly and all tiny holes are clean, use guitar string not torch head cleaners as they will enlarge the holes and make your carb run rich.
