Snowblower wont move in heavy snow?

If yours is self propelled and has a drive clutch you can let off of the drive power. What is happening is your snowblower is trying to eat more snow than it can in a reasonable amount of time. If you are not under an excessive load, its usually a blockage in the carb or old fuel. try new gas from the gas station, replace your spark plug, if this doesn't work you may need to clean the carb.

What do you do if your snowblower is not jetting any fuel?

No fuel in tank; clogged line at/in the fuel tank; clogged fuel filter; carburetor needle valve is closed, fuel float stuck closed. Disconnect fuel line at carb, if you have fuel there, the problem is at the needle valve or float; if no fuel. the problem liies between the carb and the tank, next methodical check would be the fuel filter, etc.

What causes a Two stroke snowblower to not start?

From my experience with small engines, first check for all safety releases up near the handle, - make sure the plug isnot being grounded by a safety devise. A common problem is that fuel is left in the tank and carb over a season and a shellac can form inside the carb as the fuel sits or evaporates. If you can, drain all fuel from carb bowl, and tank, Assuming the carb is cloged, try spraying starting fluid directly into the carb bowl possibly through the fuel line. Let it sit for a while to see if the volitile vapors will help open it up. You can then Mix new fuel oil, add some treatment such as Stabilze, to prevent and remove any remaining shellac, replace plugs and it should start. If not, maybe take it to small engine repair place
