Hello,

First start by pouring out the fuel in the tank, into a container that you can see through. Is the fuel a yellowish color, or is it blueish? If it is yellowish, someone forgot to put oil in it, and you seized the engine and you wont be able to fix it. Well you could, but it would be cheaper to buy a new one.

Hope this helps

My 12 years old Craftsman snow blower suddenly died after hearing a bang. Start pull is stuck. Electric start runs, but doesn't seem to be engaged. Thank you for the help in advance!


I suspect the engine is locked. What is the oil level and condition. You can further investigate by removing the starter housing and try to rotate the flywheel. You can remove the cylinder head to inspect if the piston is moving. I suspect the engine will need to be replaced. The original engine is no longer manufactured by Tecumseh (out of business). You may want to replace the snow blower. This is of coarse a worst case senario

Pull Cord Stops...


could be valve needs set. if it isn't opening at the right time it wont release compression for it to start. it may be the shear key in the flywheel has sheared if you have hit something like a big rock or log or something causing it to die suddenly.

I operate a 32cc Weed Wacker from Craftsman. It was working just fine, but all of a sudden stopped running and somehow I cannot pull the start cord, it got stuck. Where should I look first before opening...


The first thing I would do is remove the housing for the pull cord and spring to find out why it isn't pulling. That may be the same reason as to why it stopped and appeared to lock up.

I have had my mantis for five years. It has always been hard to start. From the very beginning I had to move the choke in and out after it started to keep it from dying after it started. Each year it has...


I feel it might be time to overhaul the carburetter. Clean out all the passages and jets, especially the little screen that is pressed into a hole under the one diaphragm. Clean out the recess for the needle and seat and replace all the gaskets, the valve plate and the primer bulb. Also check the fuel tubes and the filter at the end of the intake tube (if it has one). If there is too much wear on either the choke shaft or the throttle shaft, it may just pay you to replace the carb completely.

Engine dies when running. Intermittently dies while running no sputtering or other warning, all of a sudden the engine is off. Mostly happens at lower rpm's. Starts right back up after putting it in park.


first thing to replace and cheapest would be the fuel filter ,if that doesn't fix the problem , it may be the fuel pump . GM fuel pumps are in the gas tank, and they have a built in thermo fuse . when fuel pumps get old 60000 miles or so..the motor in fuel pump starts running to hot and the thermo fuse kills the power till it cools down then it will run till it gets hot again note the cool down time keeps getting longer and longer

Pull cord won't pull


Check the shaft to see if there is something stuck in there. You can pull the wire shaft out to check. It is wire but looks like a small cable. Good luck...Lee

Pull-cord will not retract.


If you put a longer cord on it , then it will not retract as far and get stuck.
