Ariens Snowblower

I have an Ariens Deluxe snowblower model number 110415 (921032) and it only runs on half choke. It runs perfect on half choke but on full choke it sputters. It is only 2 years old. Any thoughts.

At this time of the year it should not need full choke, not even half choke except for starting it....

If you mean it runs well on mid throttle but sputters on full throttle, than I agree with cranman..... clean the main jet



You can also try putting "seafoam" in the fuel and running the engine for a half hour to see if it clears it (I don't know exactly what this seafoam product is, but I've read of a few members using it with success, maybe a member that know what it is may chime in with the name of it).

not familiar with Ariens but agree with members saying the main jet needs cleaning. can take bowl off the carb and use carb cleaner with that straw attachment on nozzle and stick it up the middle of the pick up tube. that is the main jet is, i believe.

give it some generous squirts. that usually works depending on gunk in carb. this is usually caused by old gas. you can also put about an ounce of seafoam in gas to help keep the carb clean.

if the first part doesn't work, you'll probably have to remove carb and do a more thorough cleaning. there are some good videos on you=tube showing this procedure.

+1 on the Seafoam. That stuff works miracles and can very often save you the aggravation of a rebuild or replacement. Try it before you do anything else. After you get it running right, run the tank dry and keep it that way until you're ready to use it. The ethanol laced gas is murder on small engine carbs.

So just put the seafoam in and run it for a bit?
