Question and Answers

Q:

Snow blower engin sputtiers then cuts out 536886540 Craftsman Snowthrower

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you're having with the intermittently running engine. I know how frustrating that is. 

This sounds like a spark issue. When the spark module or coil is going out, they will run erratically when the engine warms up. Next time the engine dies, pull out the plug (it may be hot), reattach it to the boot, and ground the base to the cylinder. Have a helper start the engine and see if there is spark. If not, replace the spark module. It is part number 440-505 for this Tecumseh 143.945001 engine model. If you do have spark, it will be fuel related, and you will want to clean the carb.

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

Why would the set screws on the auger pulley keep coming loose? I have verified that the pulley is lined up with the top pulley, so the belt is aligned. 536886540 Craftsman Snowthrower
