Q:

snow thrower

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issues you're having with the snow thrower. I know how frustrating that is. 

It will be difficult to give a price range without knowing exactly what's wrong with it. It may just need standard maintenance. The belts could be slipping, the cables may need adjustment, or it could be something more intensive like the gear box. You Tube has some great videos on snow thrower maintenance like how to lubricate the drive shaft and perform belt maintenance. I would recommend viewing some of those, and give the snow thrower a good once over. If it seems like it's something major like a gear box (part 918-04172B), which is an expensive component, it may be worth looking at a replacement. 

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

The carb on this model is NG. Every time you use it and it sits for a period of time (a week maybe?), the gas glues the needle valve in place. I've tried additives and stableizer, drained the tank kept it full, you always end up popping the wheel off and cleaning that carb. Bought it 2011 and I've had the bowl off this thing more times then I can count, not real happy about that. There is also a "service bulletin" on this model's MTD motor #TB 71-37 for guess what? Don't bother calling the Recall dept. in East Jabip, Afghanistan? they're clueless. Call the excellent Tech service dept. here in the USA

Q:

Engine Surging - Running Rough 247889702 Craftsman 26

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear that the engine is running rough and that the choke must be engaged for it to run properly. I know how frustrating that is.

This is a very common symptom of a blocked main jet within the carburetor. A thorough carburetor cleaning should take care of the issue. However, if the carburetor is excessively varnished, a rebuild or a replacement may be called for.

I would pull the carb from the engine. With a full can of carb cleaner, a wire brush, and a bread tie/small gauge bailing wire to poke through and clean the main jet; I would recommend a very thorough cleaning. Start by taking off the float bowl. Douse it very liberally with carb cleaner, and undo the pin for the float, and remove the needle and float. Clean them very thoroughly with the wire brush and carb cleaner. Pay close attention to the seat the needle sits in and clean it well. Once clean, start brushing the carb bowl and body and make sure you get all the varnish out. It may take three or four brushings with carb cleaner dousing in-between. From there, take the straw of the carb cleaner and shoot carb cleaner through any little hole or passageway of the carb. Shoot out the throat of the carb and poke the main jet with the bread tie wire. You have to make sure you get everything the first time, if you leave anything behind, it’s likely to reclog once you have it reassembled.
