Remove your spark plug, then try turning your engine over. Let's see if your engine spins freely.

It's on a snowblower. And yes it spins freely
Technician: Donald, Small Engine Technician replied 11 months ago

Thanks for your response. Did you notice if any gas spewed out of your spark plug hole, as your engine turned over without your spark plug inserted?

No gas spewed out of spark plug hole

What do I do now? Wait for call, Get a refund?
Technician: Donald, Small Engine Technician replied 11 months ago

If your engine spins freely after you remove your spark plug, but is hard to spin when your spark plug is inserted, is an indication that your valves are out of adjustment, and will need to be adjusted.
