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.
Since your snow blower has sat idle for months, the gas could easily have developed gummy residue, which can make starting the machine difficult. Siphon out the old stuff with a small siphon pump, and follow these steps for how to dispose of the gasoline. Then, fill the tank with fresh gas and try starting it again.
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.
A misadjusted or broken control cable will prevent the wheels from turning. Replace the traction control cable if necessary but be sure to properly adjust the cable`s tension so the drive disk properly engages with the friction wheel when the handle lever is depressed.
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. Next, try replacing the spark plug by disconnecting the rubber boot attached to the plug and removing the plug with a ratchet wrench.
