Sears Snowthrower/Blower won't start

I have an old sears snowthrower. It's model 536.918800. It was given to me by my brother in law who says it worked before I got it home. I can't get it started. I pull and pull but nothing. I checked the spark it's there but the engine just won't turn over. Any advice is appreciated. I'm pretty handy so if I need to take aparrt, etc. I can do that with the right instructions.

First try removing the float bowl a lot of times water gets in to the carb and won't allow the machine to start, while you are at it you might as well drain the old gas out of the tank be sure if there is a gas valve or petcock it is allowing the fuel to flow to the carb and the gas flows out through the nedle and seat, when you remove the carb's float bowl gas should leak out fairly quickly confirming proper gas flow. Also be sure the choke is operating properly, the only other thing it may be is perhaps a clogged float chamber vent clean the carb with gum out and reassemble. All these things I have described if done properly should bring the old beast back to life.

I own a Sears craftsman dual stage snowthrower . I haven't used it for a couple years now and I took out the old gas. But it still won't start Model # C950-52846-0 9.0 T.P. 24 inch


If you haven't taken the carb. off and clean it yet. you may need to do so. thak the bowl of to see if the float got bent. and you will need to clean out the float pin hole

How to remove bent augers from craftsman 27 inch snow thrower. model #944.528393


There is no repair manual for Craftsman snowthrowers including the Husqvarna built ones like yours. Sears trains their techs to repair these, but not the general public.
Here is the operators manual. It includes detail parts listings so you should be able to go off them to tear the unit apart.
http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals/25209/CRAFTSMAN-Snowthrower-Gas-L0909438?brand_name_search=craftsman+52839
I suggest you split the snowthrower from the power unit and put it on a workbench at a convieninet height for you to work from.
On page 22 of the manual is a parts breakdown of the impeller/blower area. Use this to tear your unit apart.
Feel free to ask anymore questions.

The model number of your snow blower is actually 247.886640. That's why nobody else could figure where to get your manual.
Here is the link to the manual:

Sears 10inch gas snowblower wont move but runs


You may have a bad clutch assembly. Check it and then see if the belt is tight enough.
