 SNOW BLOWER DOES NOT START

My snow blower will not start. Fuse is OK, oil is enough. Any ideas why it won't start

 SNOW BLOWER DOES NOT START

Sue,

A little help here:

Manual or electric start.
Describe Not Start - does the starter crank but the engine won't run, does it turn over when you pull it but sputter and die - the more details, the more helpful we can be.

Now don't take offense to this part, please, 'cause none is intended (and some of this is from painful experience) -
do you have good fuel in the tank - or any? (I had a leak once, pulled for a half hour). is there a shutoff for the gas? its open, right? how do you shut off the blower - a metal strip on the sparkplug (not touching I hope)? is there gas getting to the chamber (pull out the spark plug and check) (oh, and was the wire attached?) While the plug is out, and the wire attached, check to see if the plug gives off any spark.

The list can go on, but we need a place to start.

I think I might try a shot of starter fluid and if that gets it going run some cleaner/small engine tune-up type additive stuff through it. Guess I've got to note that starter fluid for gas rather than diesel engines. If starter fluid doesn't get it going then Stan's list of questions is a good place to start.

Engines that sit for months between starts can gum up and it's probably good to use fuel stabilizer when they're shut down for the season. I'm going through the same thing right but my small engines would start with starter fluid and I hope the additive stuff does the trick.

Becarful with using starting fluid on small engines, starting fluid is better used for diesel and larger/industrial gasoline engines as a last resort. More times than not I have seen the top of pistons blown apart, or someone drowns a small engine with the stuff and it hydrolocks and snaps the connecting rod (especially with electric start models). Go with stan,s recommendations, begin with spark and then fuel. If you are unsure on how to check these things, ask a friend or nearby nieghbor. Good luck.

Yes that's a consideration but I don't believe I've heard of a case of damage to a small engine from using it once as directed, which is what was advocated. Maybe somebody is aware of such damage and then I'll learn something.

Risks noted and true the exact situation isn't known. However, if I was knee deep in snow and couldn't start a blower I believe I'd try a shot of starter fluid. It might get the blower going and the snow removed without having to tinker with the engine first.

I guess since the subject of starter fluid and diesels was raised, it would be good to note some risks here as well. I don't believe the stuff should ever be used in indirect injection engines, because they have glow plugs. I don't know if use is at all acceptable with other types of pre-heating systems. Almost everybody here has some type of pre-heating system, and I do recall stories of damage from one-time use of ether in indirect injection diesels.
