my carb is leaking fuel, and it is not running well. i tried cleaning out
the jets and ports with it on the snowblower. i did remove the bowl and
clean it and the purge jet. i did not remove the float, and clean the
needle, and seat. i am thinking the seat is dirty and not letting the
needle seat properly.

First time with my snowblower... seems like it's revving too high. Not sure
what it's supposed to sound like. Do you adjust the upper screw CW or CCW
to decrease idle speed?

Author Jim Dent (4 months)
I just cleaned the carb on my snowblower which would not run for me very
well this year. It runs great now but I notice that the muffler is glowing
a bit and flames shoot out the muffler when I go from high to low RPMs.

My carb is like the first one you show in this video. Any suggestions?

I bought a Sears craftsman worked great for last 4 years. This winter it's
seems to surge up and down during idle and when underload. Sometimes small
backfire after coming out of being under load if load not put back on it
right away. Any ideas.

Author Dan Allain (3 months)
I have the older type carburetor, When I prime it, fuels squirts out near
the top, an inch or so above the bowl gasket... Do i need a new carb, do
you think? I took it apart and the float has a crack in it also.

Author flamethis (3 months)
I was messing with mine all night (just picked it up as a freebie) it won't
run. Starts if I squirt some fuel in the carb but dies right out. I'm
thinking it's the adjuster on the bottom of the bowl now. I didn't check it
before cleaning so I think I tightened it right up.

Used this video and the carb cleaning video to fix a freebie toro snow
blower and got it running like a top...Then moved on to a problematic husky
saw and fixed it (broken gas line) by watching Don's chain saw vids. No
other way to say it... Don's the man!

snow we've been having. Doesn't clog anymore!

When I purge the carb I see fuel leak out from the bowl. How can I stop
this or is it a safety measure? Seems odd if it is a safety measure.

Hey dony! Love your videos. I have a snow blower that starts and idles but
shuts off as soon as it touches even 2" of snow. I've been told maybe I'm
getting too much air. Any tips?

My snow blower was running a bit rough and I was not sure exactly how to
adjust it to run smoother. I came on youtube looking for answers and found
your video. Thank you for a well done video that explains everything very
easy and clear as it was a great help.

I got some small stones caught in the snowblower on second time I used it.
The auger is stuck shut and if I try to engage it it makes a high pitched
sound, but does not turn. Please offer suggestion what to fix and how.

Hi Donny: Love your videos. Changing the drive gear on an electric starter
was a breeze thanks to you. Today I discovered that my older model Briggs
snow thrower is leaking from the plunger valve on the bottom of the carb. I
suspect the gasket inside the bowl has disintegrated. Do you have a video
that shows how to change that part out? Hopefully while leaving the carb
attached. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

My Ariens works great except for one problem. When moving a lot of snow the
engine suddenly stalls out for no apparent reason. It has nothing to do
with the auger/impeller get jammed up. I've found that if I shake the whole
blower as it starts to stall, it sometimes comes back. I did clean the
carburetor and adjust the mixture screws. Is this likely a problem with the
high-speed jet getting plugged?? Or, something else??? Should I drain the

Great vids! I have the same Tec engine with the old carburetor and when I
prime it it squirts gas and the priming rubber feels spongy as if it's not
building pressure. Do you know what it could be?

Author VlogginLife (2 years)
Thanks man...I think you just saved me some time. I just did a rebuild on
my tecumseh carb and its running fine with full choke but when you turn the
choke off it sputters and dies. I ended up setting the fuel mixture screw
out 2.5 turns..looks like I went a bit too far.
