Electric snow blowers come with a variety of chute types. The chute control directs which way you blow the snow. To turn the chute without stopping, consider a model with a crank or lever chute.
This Old House recommends spraying the exit chute with a silicone (like WD-40® Specialist® Water Resistant Silicone Lubricant) to keep snow from sticking. When you are finished clearing snow, let the snowblower run for a few minutes to dry out to prevent parts from being damaged by freezing.
A “snow thrower” refers to a single stage snow removal machine that picks up the snow in one motion and throws it out the chute with the continuation of that movement. The term “single stage” describes the fact that the snow is thrown in one single movement. A “snow blower” refers to a two stage snow removal machine.

If your snow blower is cold, you`ll want to pull out or turn on the choke while you`re starting it. This closes off the air supply to your carburetor, which makes for a much richer fuel mixture.
These shear bolts are classified as a grade 2 bolt, which are hard enough to maintain auger rotation, yet soft enough to shear if the auger is prevented from rotating.
Brass 1/4″ shear bolts are most commonly used on smaller, entry-level snowblowers. Black 5/16″ shear bolts are for larger mid-grade snowblowers. Silver 5/16″ shear bolts are the most durable and are used on professional-grade snowblowers.
Because snow blowers are used in cold weather, a battery would not function well. Therefore, it`s necessary to plug it in to use the electric start.
A much quicker and easier method is to spray the inside of the discharge chute with a silicone lubricant (a silicone spray can also be used on the auger blades or impellers instead of grease). This silicone spray should be renewed each time the snow thrower is used.

Will not start – Yard Machines 24" 208cc Two Stage Snow Thrower
If there is an adjusting screw on the carb turn it out a little bit at a time and see if that works before you do anything else. If that don’t work put the screw back where you started.
If that doesn’t work take the plug out and install a new one and while the plug is out put a table spoon of gas in the spark plug hole and reinstall the plug and put the plug wire back on. If the engine starts but stalls after the little bit of gas is used up. Take the bowl off the carb and clean it out as well as clean the fuel jet that is in the bolt that holds the bowl on. Put back together and see if that works. It is quite often dirty gas that is the problem. Especially if its been sitting. Oh yes put fresh gas in it as well.
