How To Get A Craftsman Snowblower Started


Craftsman snowblowers are a great way to quickly clear large amounts of snow from your property. But, like any machine, they can be tricky to start up. With some simple steps, however, it’s easy to get your Craftsman snowblower running and ready for use.

The first thing you’ll need to do is make sure that the gas and oil tanks are both topped off. If you have an older model, you may need to use a combination of gasoline and oil. For newer models, simply add oil and gas separately. Make sure to use the correct fuel and oil for your model, and be sure to check the oil level regularly.

Once the tanks are topped off, you’ll need to prime the carburetor. This is done by turning the key to the “on” position, then holding the primer button in for a few seconds. Once it’s primed, turn the key to “start” and hold it down until the snowblower starts.

If the snowblower doesn’t start right away, you may need to try a few things. Check the spark plug first. If it’s wet or corroded, replace it. You can also try replacing the air filter or cleaning the carburetor. If the snowblower still doesn’t start, then you may need to take it to a service center for repairs.

Once the snowblower is running, you’ll need to adjust the settings for the snowblower. This includes the chute direction, speed, and auger height. Make sure to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for adjusting these settings. Finally, you’ll need to make sure the snowblower is in the correct operating position. This is typically the middle position, but make sure to check the manual for your specific model.

Now that your Craftsman snowblower is primed, adjusted, and ready to go, you can start clearing snow. Make sure to wear appropriate safety gear, such as gloves and goggles, and to work slowly and carefully. With these simple steps, you can easily get your Craftsman snowblower running and ready to use.
