Question about Garden

1 Answer

I have an ARIEN snowblower Model 921031 24". It will not start. Please help me remedy this. Thank You ....Eddie

I have gas and oil in it. I've changed the spark plug. I've used it for the past two years so I know all the levers and knobs are in the correct position. I've tried to start it by hand and electrically.

If there is adjusting screw on the carb open it up a part of a turn and see what happens I had to do that to my Craftsman Blower. Open is left If that does not work
Take the spark plug out and shoot a little bit of gas into the plug hole then put the plug back in. Try to start it. If it starts and stalls then try two or three times. Make sure you have fresh gas as well.

Craftsman 30" deck model 247.290000 fails to start

you might want to take the carb off and clean it but don't mess with the set screws. in the bottom of the carb there is a small pin hole that sometimes gets clogged. Use a stick pin to clean out the hole. you can buy carb. cleaner at an auto parts store.

I have a Husqvarna snowblower, model 9027ST, that is 5 years old. I can not get it to start. It has not been used in awhile. Any suggestions? Thank you


When gas engines haven't been started in a while, the gas tends to gunk up. This is due to Ethanol being added to today's gas.

You will need to drain the carb bowl and clean it. Drain the fuel tank and refill the fuel tank with, fresh, Premium gas (no Ethanol additives) and add Sta-bil to the fuel tank - add the recommended amount to the fuel tank. Run a full tank through the system. When refilling the tank again, use SeaFoam additive. This can be obtained from Wal-Mart or your local parts house. Follow the directions on the can and add the recommended amount to your fuel tank. Start the engine and let it run for approximately 5 minutes and then shut it off. Your Snowblower will be easier to start the next time you use it. Always use Sta-bil if your engine is going to sit for any length of time.

Shear bolt size for an Arien 624 snowblower

You will need to contact your local lawn & garden dealer for the proper pin. It is NOT just a regular bolt. DO NOT use a regular bolt, as it will damage the shaft or ribbon because it has too high a bolt 'grade' (ie., it is too hard)

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

I need a manual for a snowblower craftsman 10/30 it doesn't start,i changed the sparkplug and it doesn't chage anything,i change the oil last year,does it need to be changed this year to

Most common problem with snowblowers is clogged carb. Remove spark plug and put a tea spoon full of gas in the plug hole and try to start. If it starts for a sec that is your problem. To get a manual go to you will need the model number to find the correct manual. Model number should start with 917.XXXXXXX.
