I have an MTD snowblower. Motor stops once I squeezed the auger handle. What can be the problem(s)? Thanks!

I have an MTD snowblower lot/model 310-550-088/k069b that manage my life says they don't have a manual to. In any case, the snowblower starts, but the whenever I squeeze on the auger handle to start the auger, the motor stops. What can be the problem or how can I fix this when I don't have the manual? What parts do I need to replace? Thanks in advance!

I can understand how frustrated you must be when your snow blower is not working correctly. I was able to find some great general information. I hope that it's helpful and makes you understand what can be the problem with your item.

Thank you for your question. I was able to fine a model that I think is similar to yours. It looks to be about a 2001 model. If the engine stalls when you pull the lever for the auger, I suspect the auger is seized. I recommend removing the spark plug wire first. Then try to turn the impeller inside of the auger housing. The impeller is directly below where the snow is discharged. You should not be able to turn the augers because of the gearing. If the impeller seems to turn somewhat free, replace the spark plug wire and test the operation. If the engine still stalls, I suspect the problem is with the engine. Try to turn the choke on one click before engaging the auger. If the engine runs better, I recommend having the carburetor cleaned.
