Bought last year can not start


Is it new gas you are using? If you left the gas in from last year you may have a gummed up carburater. If you have a fuel cup on the bottom of the carb take it off and clean it up also cleaning the fuel jet as well. If the jet is dirty it will not run. When you remove the cup be careful the float does not come down too far or the gadget that the float works may fall out.

Start snow blower runs for 3 min. and starts to over heat checked oil its ok then stats to shut down like its not geting oil


Why do you say its over heating .Runs for 3 minutes the oil is OK .
Do you understand how the choke works .
bacsicly you prime the mechine in cold condutions 3-4 pumps choke to max throttle at 3 /1/4 .
Start backing off the choke after 3-to4 mins .
The choke shuts the fresh flow down to the engine in cold condutions ware it needs more fuel then air to run.
When the engine starts to get hot it can't run with out fresh air to mix with the gas it won't run anymore because there is to much gas and not enough air
Its simple fool prof will work everytime if you adjust it right

Try running some fuel system cleaner through it. A good choice is Chem Tools Berryman B-12. There are some hardworking solvents in the product that could help you overcome a dirty carburetor. Initially use a good, strong dose. Maybe double what they recommend . (1 oz/gallon). If this doesn't work, the carb will probably need to be removed and inspected and cleaned.

The running time seems to indicate a plugged fuel tank vent. Try opening the cap to see if that will allow continued running. Many engines have the vent within the cap itself, while others vent from the air cleaner through a line. Ignore the fuel drip on the adjustment screw. Hope this helps!

I have Ariens Model # 1336DLE snow blower aprox 5 yrs


A volt meter or test light will be needed. Also a 12 volt battery supply ( you can use an automobile battery or your automobile)

*Please Note: before testing, make sure all wires and connections are tight and not corroded, loose, or burnt. Many electrical problems are just loose, broken, or burnt wire connections.

Test the chute rotator motor: you will need to disconnect the motor from the wiring harness.
1) connect a wire to the 12 volt supply and one of the motor leads
connect the other wire to the remaining lead
*note: positive or negative does not matter, because the chute motor will rotate either direction, and by reversing leads, the motor direction will reverse.

2) If the motor is good, now check for voltage from the snowblower engine.
Locate the supply wire to the rotator switch, with the engine running, check the voltage reading on that supply wire.

3) If the supply is good, then the switch is bad
