You should provide routine repair and maintenance to your snowblower to keep it running properly and safely. Below are some simple tasks you can perform to keep your snowblower running great.Make the repairs that you’re comfortable doing yourself and hire a professional to make the repairs that are beyond your skill level.
First place your snow blower in a well lit area. Remove and replace the spark plugs in your snowblower. If your snowthrower has a hard time starting or runs rough then you might want to check the carburetor. All it takes is a small peace of dirt or debris in your carburetor to cause problems. Cleaning and rebuilding the carburetor is a project that can be done by a home owner but will take time and patience. We sell original carburetor kits and after market kits for almost all engine manufactures. If you do not see what you need on our site please call us at 877-314-6990 as we would love to help you! It’s also very important to have a new fuel filter installed as it will catch most if not all of the debris in the fuel. We sell many universal fuel filters in the $3 to $5 range. Last thing with the engine that you would want to check would be the air filter. If the filter is in good shape then just shake out the dust or dirt and reinstall. If it’s in need of replacement then we can offer you the correct filter at a great price.
If you have not checked your snowblower paddles then you might want to before the snow hits. They are always in contact with snow and take a beating! Check your paddles and see if they are in need of replacement. It is very important to have a healthy set of paddles installed for the winter months. Apply wax to the paddles and the snow chute if the paddles are in good condition. Remove the rivets and replace the paddles if the set is worn out. We carry many paddle sets in stock so if you are in need then we can help!
