Re: Craftsman 247.886940
Good question. I was working on this unit for a friend. The snow blower came with the house he bought last summer. At the time, he started it up and it started easily and idled good. Now that we have snow, he gave it a try and it immediately stalled under load. I did some basics on it...cleaned plug, new gas, removed cleaned and replaced carb. Still starts, idles good but continues to stall under load. When I cleaned the carb, I just disassembled, cleaned and shot the jets with carb cleaner. Bowl and float were clean (no deposits), needle valve looked good, and jets passed carb cleaner freely. The load is not excessive as both wheels and impeller/auger turn freely by engaging controls and pulling the starter cord. Any ideas?
