View Full Version : Fixing a snowblower??

11-22-2008, 12:36 PM
I have a snowblower that won't start this year. I have no way of getting it to get serviced right now, nor the cash it might cost. This blower is under 2 years old. If there is anyone out there that knows a thing or two about engines that might have a minute to come and take a look at it and help out a single mom, and a full time student.... I would really appreciate it.. message me!! or pm me for my number thanks...

Is there old gas in it from last year? - sometimes all it takes is fresh gas - it can deteriorate sitting in the tank all summer. :)

Ron's Small Engines is at the lower end of McNabb Street (address is somewhere around 60 to 80 McNabb). He will come to your house and pick it up for you. Great guy, ... good work, .... good prices. Can't beat that.

what brand of blower ?

Make sure you have that red key in it :) A prime it a bit before trying to start. THen check spark plug. Those are the cheapest easiest things to do.

try fuel conditioner then/or check that fuel tank is not shut off remove hose before carb and make sure fuel is getting to the carb. take off bowl from carb and clean make sure hole in the needle pin is open put back and try

Well I just met the nicest people ever!!! Anapeg and his son came over and got my blower started in just a few minutes!!! They didn't want anything for their time and effort.. and even gave me all the gas they had on hand... as well as offered their assistance for anything I may need in the future.. I didn't know there were still amazing people like this out there!!! THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!!!

That was really nice of you guys!

It is nice to know that there are still people out there willing to lend a hand to someone in need and not have thier hands out.
