Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hello, and thank you for choosing Just Answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you. Is this the first time you are starting your engine in a while? Did you leave fuel inside your fuel tank over the summer months? These are only troubleshooting questions.
The reason I am asking, is because it is very likely that our problem is carburetor related.
Thanks for this information. The fuel stabilizer will not help at this point. You will need some Seafoam, or some Mechanic In A Bottle.
Are you snowed in?
The reason I asked, is because if you could make it to a store, the Mechanic In A Bottle is designed to clean your carburetor for you, without you having to remove it from your engine.
Otherwise, you will need to do at least a basic cleaning to your carburetor.

I personally would have to recommend the Mechanic In A Bottle. I have used it, and it have worked really well, many times. I have heard great things about Seafoam, but I have never personally used it.
The two oz. of gas left inside your fuel tank, meant that the fuel bowl on your carburetor, had enough gas remaining, to contaminate your carburetor, and partially clog the small jet, and fuel passages in the body of your carburetor. It doesn't take very much.
You cannot over use this product. I would use the entire bottle ...
Hopefully this will resolve our problem, without you having to disassemble, and clean your carburetor.
Is your fuel tank fuel of gas?

I will check to see if I can locate a manual for you.
You are very welcome! Yes I did see it. I have searched, and I could not find a more detailed manual.
I will check for you.
Are you referring to your engine, or to your gear case?
I am not aware of an oil for your fuel/gas tank ...
If you can get the make and model numbers from your engine, I will check to see if your engine is 2 cycle.
I was unable to locate a user manual for you. If you can get the information from your engine, I can tell you, if your engine is a 2 cycle, or a 4 cycle engine. Thanks!
The numbers for your engine are different from the model numbers for your snowblower frame.
The model and spec numbers varies from snowblower to snowblower, although made by same manufacturer. Some are 2 cycle, some are 4 cycle. You are needing to know if your engine is 2 cycle. I rather not guess.
I will be away from my computer until 4:30 pm central time. I will check for a video for you, after I back. Did you find a name, or identifying numbers on your engine? With this information, I can get the most appropriate video for you.
If you can take a picture of your engine, this will also help. Thanks!
Hello. How are you tonight? Did you find any numbers on your engine? This way I can check for a video that matches your engine.
I did not find a video that is specific to your engine, but I did find a few general videos that shows how to clean your carburetor. I do believe your engine is a Tecumseh engine. Have you already removed your carburetor from your engine?
