Customer Question
Name is ***** *****...

Name is ***** *****, Used the snowblower last year brand new. Model HS724TA. Won't start.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

Added gas. I may have flooded it. However I waited awhile, but still did not kick over.

Mechanic's Assistant: OK got it. Last thing — JustAnswer charges a fee (generally around $32) to post your type of question to Honda Experts (you only pay if satisfied). There are a couple customers ahead of you. We can help you for less if you're not in a rush. Are you willing to wait a bit?

Yes
