Mine did that and the next day mine was jammed with ice. Put it in a heated shop for a few hours and let it melt and dry out it is ok now. Water had got into the sprocket and froze.

Electric start does not work. how do i trouble shoot it?


Mine the electric cord had pulled out of the receptacle.on the blower so it was not working. I pulled it right out and reinstalled it It's ok now.
Do you have power coming to the blower or have you blown a GFI and it needs to be reset. Does the starter click or try to work? These are things that I have to know before we tear things apart.
If it buzzes it could need a gear replacement. on the starter itself.

Electric start on Troy Bilt 21" single stage snow blower doesn't work. Recoil starter does. Electric start worked last year, but today, nothing. All cords good, power, etc.


The starter could be bad. Remove starter and see if it will turn over when 120v is applied.Check the wires to starter first! Good-Day!

I just bought a Sears snow thrower, I put in oil and gas went to start it but the pull cord will not pull up. I then tried the electric starter but it just made a grinding sound. Why won t it start?


Check the crankcase and make sure it has oil. It sounds like the engine is frozen. If its brand new, take it back to Sears and have them start it for you.

I just bought a Sears Craftsman snow blower,put gas and oil in it.Itried to pull the starter cord but it will not pull. I then tried the electric starter but it just grinded.Why won t it start?


Sounds like a serious flooding issue, perhaps due to having blower on its side, take out spark plug and place plastic bag over and try pulling over, be careful that it doesn't spark and ignite any fuel expelled out of cylinder.
if that is the case pull over several times blow off plug and try again, fuel might be trapped in muffler so be aware of spray, ignition.
If it doesn't pull over with the plug removed take it back as a valve might be sprung.

Can you pull the engine over and then the cord locks or you can't pull the cord at all?
