Plz help

Hi. My name isAmanda and this is my second time using my dads snowblower. 1st time was fine. This time it isn’t starting. It’s a Simplicity. J have it plugged in, chocked, pushed primer multiple times, yes key is in, but it starts to start then stops. Any ideas? Its like below 50 out but it sits in a heated garage so I don’t think that should matter.
Oh and I don’t see a throttle like in some videos I watched or I can’t find it

If you have key in and throttle should be just to the right of key and choke it slides up and down. You should have the lever all the way up when starting.
choke should be all the way to right(full) Once started moved to half choke and leave it there for 20 seconds.... Then go to off.(full to left).


Wait Amanda what model simplicity and what engine????

Hi Amanda
If it sits in a heated garage and the primer was used plus full choke the engine may just be flooded, you can try to start it without choke and dont use primer and set throttle down towards idle. with that elect start only push the button for 10- 12 seconds at a time so as not to over heat the starter and cause more problems
If you are comfortable pulling the spark plug you would be able to see if the plug is wet with fuel indicating flooded condition, as well if you had a spare plug it could be used to start it using the no/choke /no primer
