The first thing you need to look at is the inside of the cylinder.Take the spark out and look down the hole.You will need a flashlight.Look towards the muffler side.If you see scratches.Its blowed up.If thats ok it could have an air leak some where.Or possibly a bad fuel line,or fuel filter.

Craftsman snowblower will not start


Dump out the old gas and put in new.Try a spray of starting fluid into the carb. If it will not fire on the starting fluid there is somthing wrong in the ignition system. Pull out the spark plug and clean it with a wire brush. If it still won't fire the points and condensor need to be replaced.

Will not start even withew gas


Try a spray of starting fluid into the carb. If it fires you know you have good spark. If it did not fire replace your spark plug. If it still won't fire point and condensor need to be replaced. If it did fire spray the starting fluid in the carb a few more times to pull the old fuel through the fuel line til the new gas gets through the carb and then it should run. Some machines have a fuel shut off valve make sure it is open.

Wont start,wont fire even off starting fluid,has compression,appears to have fire(with plug out and grounded to head)maybe no spark under load? help


Hi, first of all NEVER use starter fluid.........on anything. This stuff (ether) is highly volatile and could destroy your blower and cause you and others around you harm. Starter fluid is meant to start diesel engines when they are cold however, there is the possibility of pre-ignition and that could seriously harm your engine. Make sure your fuel/oil mix is correct. Also try pouring a few drops of mix down the cylinder, after replacing the plug, give the starter a try. With the proper fuel inside the chamber and a confirmed spark from the plug, the motor has no choice but to fire. From this you can determine if your idle is either too lean or too rich. Good luck.

My Craftsman leaf blower 358.794741 will no start. It won't eveen fire at all! I swapped out the spark plug with identical plug from weed wacker & the wacker started fine - thus the plug is OK. I...


When you say there is no fire, do you mean that you can't get it to act like it wants to start? Or, do you mean that when you pull the plug out and put it against the head, it has no fire? There is a difference. If you have pulled the plug and tested it that way, then it is a bad coil, (the part that connects to your spark plug).

However, if you haven't pulled the plug, then give me a description of how it is reacting.
Thanks,

Jim

Won't start, won't fire after starting fluid is used, checked spark and its blue and very small. Has new plug. Suspect bad magneto, can it be tested? Thanks Don't know model, label on handle says Poulan...


First off you should never use starting fluid on a 2 cycle engine. Serious damage to the piston and combustion chamber could result. Try changing the spark plug and if it's neccessary to prime to start use a squirt bottle with the same fuel/oil mixture as required to run your machine. Try squirting a small amount into the combustion chamber through the spark plug hole. Squirt,replace spark plug,and start. Starting fluid also washes the cylinder of an oil and it could cause a siezure of the piston.

New saw - will not start. Have put in premium gas/oil mix. Getting spark from plug when cord pulled. Hasn't even fired once.


It's possible the brake is on. Try pushing the brake forward then pulling it back until you hear it click. Then try cranking it again.
