You are not getting fuel to the carb take it off and give it a good cleaning, paying attention to the small orifices. Many times on older units the float bowl screw on the carb has an orifice that is always the culprit give it a try . Good Luck

I put a mixture of oil gas in my 621 R/621 toro snowblower?


Hi Jerome:
Shouldn't be too bad.
You could disconnect the fuel line at the carb and drain the tank.
Drain and flush the carb. Reconnect the fuel line and fill with fresh gas.
If it won't start, pull the spark plug and clean/dry it with a propane torch, or replace it.
Odds are it will be fine.
Cheers.

Snowblower will not start -plug has good spark--gas new -and getting to plug -have both back and intake pressure -oil level good new oil --flot and valves ok --all air lines connected ----yet no turn over...


If this engine turns over then try this. I am not sure if you mean starter won't turn or just won't start when turning over.
Take the fuel bowl off and clean it real good as well check the fuel jet and make sure it's not plugged. The jet in most engines is in the bolt you take off the bowl with. There should be fine holes in the bolt itself. I use my air compressor to clean mine.
If you want to try something first take the spark plug out and put a table spoon of gas in the spark plug hole and put the plug and wire back on. Try to start and if it fires up then stalls then you know its carb related.
Also if you have a fuel adjusting screw in the carb you can turn it out a little at a time to set the gas flow to the engine. Do this first before you take things apart.

My toro snowblower will not start,with gas or starting fluid,no spark,stater rust cleaned off flywheel,carb cleaned,bench set,It fired with starting fluid ,but the carb had gunk in float bowl,what am


Clean out the float bowl as well clean out the fuel jet in the bolt that holds the bowl on. There usually are very small holes in this jet and if you can't see or blow through them you have to clean this out. Will not run if this is plugged. You can blow this out with an air com presser or a very small wire to push through it. Don't force anything through this hole or you could damage it. If it will start when you put a spoon full of gas in the spark plug hole and replace the plug and stalls in a few seconds it's usually a dirty carb or dirty jet. You can buy a cleanser as well to spray if needed.

My '99 chevy truck with 5,7L 350 will start but wont stay running. put new fuel pump and relay switch in


First you must determine if the fuel is stopping or the spark is stopping..If the fuel is stopping this could be a computer problem.. If the spark is stopping then it could be the IGN Module in the distributer. or any nomber of sensors. Squirt a little fuel directly into the Throttle body on the intake manifold.. If the truck runs longer its probably loss of fuel.. Do this several times to make sure, be careful and only use a small amounty of fuel.. you do not want a fire.. RE: Spark: Take a plug wire and an old plug..put the wire on the plug.. hold the plug against a good ground .. have someone crank the engine .. does the plug stop firing? The engine dies.. and will not restart for a minuet or so.. during this "no start" time do the plug test. If the plug will not fire during this time take the module out and take it to Orillys Auto parts.. They can test it.. really expensive part. Don't replace until you know it is BAD..

John Deere Snowblower 1032 won't start. Obvious solution?


First dump the old gas and put in fresh. Clean or replace spark plug.
Put a squirt of starting fluid in the carb. If it fires the ignition system is good. Do this a few times because there is still old gas in the float bowl and fuel line. When the fresh gas gets to the carb it will stay running. If it did not fire with starting fluid the points and condensor will need to be replaced and maybe the coil.

Craftsman snowblower will not kick over


Old gas? Did you pull out the spark plug and see if you have a spark? If the gas is old, drain the tank and line to the carburator, then put in fresh gas. Never put it up for the summer with gas in it. Run it until the engines runs out of fuel, then put it away.

If there's no spark, then you have a coil issue.
