Deluxe 24 Observation and Question

I picked up the Deluxe 24 a couple weeks ago and hadn't started it yet. I finally had some free time yesterday and was going to fill it with fuel and try, but I saw something and didn't want to attempt it until I got some answers. There was a open hole and I wasn't sure if it is supposed to like that.

I bought it from a box store so I thought I would seek out other answers before I went back to them. Also, being a Sunday night I wasn't able to go to the store to see if the models on display were the same. Anyway, I sent an email to Ariens.com, but I thought I would get a quicker response by posting it here.

I have attached a picture to try and generate some comments. Thank you.

I finally found a picture of the engine as it should be. It appears to that I am missing a cover for the electric start plug-in and it should be attached to the engine via a connector in the open hole. Hopefully, I can get the matter resolved with either the store or through the company.

My Toro does not have a cover for the electric start plug-in. My old Craftsman did not have one and worked fine for 18 years.

The plug on the right is for the 120 volt starter,the hole to the left of that may need a key to push in , to start.
You do not really need a cover for the plug on your starter.

Good luck

So this is the response I got from the company:

"Thank you for contacting the Ariens Company. The engine manufacturer is no longer installing the covers on the new models. It is not missing.
The terminal does not have to be covered and it may even do more harm that good under certain conditions. 20001428 is the part number of the cover kit if you wanted to purchase one from your Ariens dealer."

My question to forum members who have recently purchased a snow blower. Is this the case with your SB as well?

Bought my deluxe 24" (921045) in November 2016 it came with a cover for the AC connector- (I guess they are saving another 5 cents Per machine by not supplying it any more).
It's no big deal, My old Ariens (1970's) the connector is completely exposed and never had a problem.

I've made it over 16 year with no cover and mine is fine.

Never had this brand , but on my other snowblower what I would do is put a 3 prong adapter on the starter plug in case some crazy reason the extension cord I grabbed would not fit into starter plug .

I bought a 2016/2017 Deluxe 24 this last fall and mine came without a plug cover. I just checked and mine looks just like yours.
