10 HP snowblower motor starts then dies after a couple seconds

Can anyone provide help ?? I have a Snapper snowblower that will start and run a couple of seconds and then die. The oil level is full, all safety keys/issues are checked OK , i put new gas in. Thanks for any guidance!

You may have some obstruction in your main metering circuit of your carburetor. Check the main jet assembly and float bowl for any build up. The main jet is the nut on the bottom of the carburetor that holds the float bowl on, close off the fuel supply and remove the jet assembly. There is a small orifice in it make sure it is open. If there is any build up in the float bowl, spray it out with carburetor cleaner and see if that helps, if not a complete carburetor rebuild may be needed.

Good Luck :thumbsup:
