Gently start rocking the fan GENTLY back and forth by gripping it in the large center area and see if it will rotate. If you ran it completely out of oil; the piston, piston rings or rod end bearings will seize up. If you can not rotate it by hand and your sure it has locked up... you are going to have to overhaul the pump or replace it. The link above is a good source for parts.

Before considering an overhaul... read out the motor windings after the pressure switch to see if the motor windings are open or read a resitance value under 480 Ohms.

Depending on the motor pump used most of them have thermal overloads that will self reset when the unit cools off. It should self reset in less than 15 minutes if there is one. Ones without a thermal overload end up cooking the motor windings or tripping the house circuit CB if they run out of oil.

My Briggs 23hp ran out of fuel is there a reset switch as the engin will not start anymore.


I would be checking low oil level as there is a low level oil switch that switches off when you run low on engine oil.

Sounds like oil pressure problems to me. Check to make sure your oil level is correct. If the oil level is OK get the engine checked by a professional.

Snowblower was running for 1 hr. i shut it off when i restarted it ran 1 minute and stoped could not get it started, it it sat for 6 hrs. and started but would not run at higher rpms. it seemed to sputter


Hi. And welcome to FixYa. I am Kelly

From the symptoms you describe it sounds like the low oil sensor is shutting of the ignition.

i.e ran for 1 hour... hot oil... / low oil level ignition cut off. Sat for 6 hours all oil now in crankcase... started and higher rpm sputters....

Check the oil level. Other than that I think everything is fine.

If not please respond with a "make and model" of your snowblower. After that, there is more that we can do to resolve the problem.

Thanks for using FixYa!

Makita MAC 5200 3 HP 5.2 Gallon electric compressor


Use non detergent air compressor oil. It can be found at Lowes, Homedepot, and even Walmart. It is sold in small containers for about $2-3 dollars. A synthetic blend air compressor oil is needed when the unit is used in severe conditions. Synthetic air compressor oil sold at Lowes $6.95 and other stores will take more heat. Second choice is 30w non-detergent motor oil. Engine oils tend to produce carbon on the reed valves in the head if used extensively. I have been using the Lowes Kobalt brand of air compressor oil for some years in my Makita and Rol Air compressors with good results. The part number for Makita brand of oil is 18112-A quart size. It is only available by special order where I live. Good Luck!
