Experienced gardeners share their insights in answering this question :
Make sure that the ignition coil is not draging on the flywheel. Older engines had the ignition coil behind the flywheel. sometimes the magnets separate from the flywheel and jam the engine from turning over. If this checks out ok, the engine should then be totaly dissassembled for inspection. Depending on the damage found and the cost of repair, you’ll need to decide which repair is the most cost efficiant way to go. Also look at the rest of the machine for its overall condition. It might just be wiser to replace the entire unit.

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 :

First step, check the fuel tank to make sure there is enough fuel to operate your snow blower. You should see fuel slosh around. Second step, check the spark plug. A wet plug means there`s fuel going through the fuel system and there may be an issue with the ignition.
If your snow blower still doesn`t start, some of the old gas could still be in the carburetor. Add a fuel stabilizer to the gas tank but be sure to only to add the specified rate that can be found on the container. After adding the fuel stabilizer, try to start the machine.
If your gas blower is shaky or jittery when it`s on, there may be a problem with fuel combustion. Check the fuel or spark plugs—each is fairly simple to do. First, drain the fuel from the tank and refill it with fresh gas.
The gear box in a two stage snowblower engages the auger belt and powers the auger. If you notice it pushing more snow than throwing, you may have a damaged transmission. Check the oil fill level of the gear box often. Making sure that this is adequately filled with oil will help you determine if there are any leaks.
A clogged carburetor is usually the result of leaving fuel in your snow blower for an extended period of time. Old fuel resting in your snow blower can also result in fuel evaporation, which may leave behind a thick, sticky substance. That sticky fuel can clog the carburetor and prevent the engine from starting.
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 clogged carburetor is most commonly caused by leaving fuel in the snowblower for a long period of time. Over time, some of the ingredients in the fuel may evaporate, leaving behind a thicker, stickier substance. This sticky fuel can clog up the carburetor and cause the engine to stall.
Turn off the snowblower engine and leave it to cool. Remove the carburetor bowl, float bowl and flathead. Spray and clean the dirty carburetor with a carburetor cleaner, removing debris with a cloth. Let it sit to remove impurities.
The farther the friction wheel is moved from the center of the drive plate, the faster the snowblower moves. Moving the friction wheel across to the opposite side of the drive plate causes the snowblower to move backways.
A snowblower that won`t start after summer storage likely suffers from fuel system contamination. Draining the fuel system and refueling usually solves the issue, however, a carburetor cleaning may also be required.

Check the Spark Plug and Ignition System

Fuel on the Spark Plug: If there`s fuel on your spark plug it likely means you flooded your snowblower engine trying to start it, so simply clean the fuel off of your spark plug.
