What To Do When You Have Snow Blower Starting Problems. Snow blowers experience problems just like any other small engine machine. Your snow blow may differ because of the terrain you want to clear, the severity of the winters you experience or basically the conditions in which you would be working. Things like this may be the cause of many of the problems you experience with your snow blower. That’s why you need to make sure you get it up and running before the winter season comes around. The aim of this article is to help enlighten you on the things you should do to troubleshoot your snow blower’s starting problems that may have arisen because of lack of basic maintenance. “Choke and Throttle”: Ensure that your throttle is on “fast” when you start the engine. Ensure that if your engine is hot, your choke is closed and if your engine is cold, your choke is open.. “Carburetor Service”: Your engine should be receiving fuel so if you realize that the fuel valve is switched off, switch it back on. Otherwise, check the carburetor sediment cup to see if there is any gunk in it. They may develop because of the untreated gas that stays in them for long periods of time. You may need our services to help you clean out the carburetor.. Spark Plugs: Check to ensure that the spark plug isn’t loose of hasn’t become detached. See if there is any dirt and ensure that the gap is correct. If that doesn’t help, it’s time to get a new spark plug.. “Fuel Quality”: If your fuel has been sitting in your snow blower for quite a while, it probably isn’t good anymore. You simply need to empty out the old fuel and replace it with new fuel. Also, remember to add stabilizer too.. See if these tips work for your snow blower startup problems.
