How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?
We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :
Impeller freeze-up occurs when ice “welds” the impeller to the drum blocking the rotation of the impeller. Snow blowers are especially susceptible to freeze-up immediately after use when the machine is stored outside or in an un-heated garage where the tem- perature is below freezing.
Examine the Belts
One or more of the belts slipping off the pulleys can be the cause of a snowblower not throwing snow. If they can be put back around the pulleys snugly, that might be all it needs. But if the belts are stretched or broken, they absolutely need to be replaced.
The auger blade or blades collect the snow and throw it out of the chute. If the blades get worn they will not effectively throw the snow. Visually inspect the blades for excessive wear and replace if needed.
The most common cause of a surging snowblower at idle is a blocked carburetor idle jet. Removing, cleaning, and refitting the idle jet commonly fixes the issue.
The two most common snow blower equipment problems are starting issues and clogged chutes; however, both can be resolved with the proper maintenance and tools. Follow these easy troubleshooting tips to help get your snow blower up and running so you can get the work done quickly.
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.
I would apply a silicone grease or silicone spray lubricant into the opening regardless of your freezing issue, this will definitely help with displacing and preventing moisture build-up. Plus, it will operate more smoothly.
The impeller propels the snow through the chute. If the impeller is not jammed or broken, the snowblower won`t blow the snow. If the impeller is broken, replace it.

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.
