I would suggest you pull the carb off and clean it with mineral sprits or some other cleaning solution and blow it out with air and try it.if that don,t work you should replace it with a new one.

Loud noise when auger is engaged on 2 stage 24" 208cc

If this is covered with a warren tee I would take it back where I bought it. Sounds like a faulty bearing or something is sprung and hitting when it starts up.

Auger blades are spinning

sound like you might have 2 problems. If auger doesn't engage in heavy snow you probably just have ice accumulation inside the impeller. Dont try to engage until impeller is cleared of snow (shut off and unplug spark plug before cleaning) Second if blades are spinning than you must have hit something in your path and broke the shear bolt (about 2 bucks at hardware shop) remove the old bolt and replace it and it should work again if this is the problem. Good luck.

I have a Craftsman 22" Auger type snow thrower with electric start thatwill not start. It had gas in it from last winter. I primed it , I set the choke to full, gas open all the way and, at first, it

if you are using ethanol the check the gas lines for a plug because the ethanol leaves a residue behind that can plug your gas line.

I have a Sears snow blower. It is not throwing even a light snow. On engaging auger both sides spin slowly. I observed one side of the auger stops spinning when proceeding into snow pile. What may be the...

many Sears/Craftsman snowblowers have a shear bolt on the auger shaft or one on each side. This bolt is designed to break under a specific amount of force to prevent damage to the gear box or drive assembly if the blades encounter an immovable object or something becomes jammed (even a newspaper buried in the snow can cause this). They likely broke at some point during use in the past and you did not realize this, or they were not properly installed when the blower was new. If you check the auger shaft and find one or 2 holes that look like something should be there, then you found the most likely problem. If you reply with the model I can tell you exactly where to look and the part # or if you realize the bolts are missing you can contact that parts dept at Sears with your model and they can provide replacement bolts. Can be a pain with small things but a lot less expensive than a new gearbox.
