If your snowblower refuses to start, the first thing to do is inspect the obvious (but frequently overlooked) things: check to ensure that the throttle is in the “start” position, then see if there is enough gasoline in the tank.

Your show blower engine fuel tank should be filled with fresh, clean fuel, not old or contaminated gasoline. If you use fuel stabilizer, the fuel in the engine will stay fresher longer, in fact, it can stay fresh up to a year.

Inspect the spark plug assembly on your snow blower and make sure that the plug is securely fastened to the throttle wire and properly fitted in the spark plug compartment. Replace spark plug if it shows signs of age, degradation or wear.

Check the air filter on your showblower and replace if dirty or worn.
