Hi, this is WAY off topic lol, but since most of you are good with these engines and know what your talking about, i figured you might be able to help me, since my snowblower is also a 2 cycle engine....i think? lol. Its a small orange one with rubber propellers the pick up the snow rather than blades like the big ones have.

Anyway...It woulldnt start in the begginning of the winter, so I took it to a lawnmower shop to get it fixed and just got it back. I started it up today and it started up pretty easy, but it is idles at full speed, so when i pull the lever that says "engage propellar" it doesnt even do anything since the propellars already going. Thats not a problem though, I can deal with that, i would turn the idle down but the gu8ys probobly turned it all the way up for a reason? But, my problem is that itll start and run fine, but after i turn it off, i cant start it again for another 3 or 4 hours, and nmow i want to go blow off my deck, i just did the driveway, but i cant because i cant get it started...i dont get it. Can anyone help me? Thanks alot, Ross.

Why not just take it back to the place that fixed it?

If you already paid them to fix it and they failed to do so, why would you have to pay more money if you bring it back?

those things are a p.i.t.a.

so... first thing. what does your plug look like? how much compression? and, once its been running and you shut it off, do you prime and choke it to restart it? those things are supposed to idle fast. very few of them have a throttle control. as far as the paddles go, they should only engage when you squeeze the lever. if they dont disengage, either the idler arm is stuck, someone put too short a belt on, or the belt is hung up on something.

Alright cool, thanks alot donp!

They did fix it, i brought it to them because i couldnt get it started, they prettymuch just rebuilt the carb and cleaned some other crap, its not broken, it still works, it just is wierd since i have to wait a while after i turn it off until i could start it again. Thanks donp, ill check those things
