Senad'


Is that the machine with the 205cc Briggs Polar Force engine?
If that's the case, my understanding is that the carb for that is part number: 798917


But also, wasn't that the machine that Ariens had a recall on for a serious fire hazard?

Maybe I'm thinking of a different machine......

I dont know if it would apply to your unit , but Ariens has a recall for the 24" model 920014 snow blower for a fire hazard, float bowl nut or something of that nature. I believe it was for units sold through HD in 2012

why do you need a new carb?

I'd rather try to clean and/or repair the original than put an inferior aftermarket carb on it.

I agree with Orangeputeh completely, the original is a better carb, first give it a shot and rebuild it.

Before I take them off I always put some carb cleaner in the gas,I've already had to run the choke for a while to keep it running but usually they get cleaned out &, start purring w/o touching a wrench to them.

I'll have to try this. How long does it take usually? a whole tankful ? or say 30 minutes or so.

I guess I don't have the patience. And with the carbs I have worked on , I try a in frame cleaning first, taking the bowl off, the main jet and emulsion tube etc. , and the idle jet. that usually works. I haven't worked on as many carbs as J Lawrence and others here. Only on a couple occasions have i had to completely remove carb and take apart to clean out.

I've run Seafoam for hours through a little Honda generator, with no improvement, it still needed partial choke to run smoothly, without surging. I eventually gave up and disassembled the carb to clean it. It didn't help my big generator either, or my lawn tractor. It may work wonders for some people, but unfortunately I have yet to see an improvement from running it.

There's certainly no harm in trying, though, especially if you already have some cleaner available. Maybe I'll try some other type of cleaner product in the future. I have an ultrasonic cleaner, which has worked great, but taking the carb apart takes time, and risks messing something up. Pouring stuff in the tank is easy and low-risk, and if it works, great!
