My Airens SB 24 LE is surging after starting...

I bought the 24 ax208 9.5 about a year ago in Dec. I used it once. This year I have not used it all although tomorrow may get a chance to. I replaced the fuel. The oil is fine. So I've used it 1 time total. Today when I started it, I let it run. Its surging bad and doesn't seem normal to me. I let it run awhile thinking some left over bad fuel was the problem maybe. I've looked all over the web. I have a hard time believing after one run total its doing this.

Anyone have some advice? Is this normal? Also if I mess with the choke I can get it to idle with the choke about half. I turn it up or down it surges again.

Thanks for any help.

sounds like some fuel was left in the carb and is plugging up the jets a bit, You could pull the main jet easy enough and try and clean it out some to see if it helps, A LOT of good videos on youtube on how to do it on your carb without me badly trying to explain how to do it (I'm not so good at explaining things)

Thanks for the info. I didn't properly put this away last year. Its only had one run since I bought it new. So I've learned my lesson.

Thanks.

Not to worry, we have all done it and for the snow fall the main jet is pretty easy to get out without removing the carb, Not fun it the cold but should only take a few minutes to pull it out and bring the jet inside to clean. I use a strand of copper wire to poke out any crud in there then spray it out with contact cleaner but carb cleaner would work a little better but I don't like spraying that stuff inside LOL

Thanks. I will tackle this first thing in the AM. Appreciate the help. Weird for us in Northern Ohio not to get the snow to use this thing. Twice in two years is very strange here. Be safe and Thanks again.

You are the person who everybody else in the neighbourhood can thank for buying a snowblower, and thereby causing most snow to miss you. You should talk up a collections from everybody on the street for the public service you have done in preventing most snow from coming anywhere near.

However you have to keep up on the maintenance, because the moment the machine is broken and waiting for parts that are a week or more away, BAM, you will get all the snow you would have gotten in the past before you had a snowblower, even in July! (would i lie to you)

Work fascinates me.
