Loud noise turning off

Today was the first time I got to use my new Arien 28 Deluxe. This was my first time using a snow blower, when I turned the machine off it made a loud bang, almost like a gun shot. Is this normal, or should I be concerned?

Not normal.

How did you turn it off?

Was it a metallic bang or an engine backfire?

You may want to power it down slowly. This can happen because the EPA want engine to run very lean.

Back fire, one more for throttle down before shutdown

On my Toro Zero Turn mower with a 14 HP Briggs & Stratton, it MUST be turned off at full throttle, or I get an afterfire that sounds like a 30-06 firing. (Backfire is through the carb, afterfire is through the muffler.) There's actually lingo in the Owners Manual:
To stop the machine, move the traction control levers to neutral and separate to the brake position, disengage the PTO, ensure the throttle is in the fast position, and turn the ignition key to off.
B&S - Possible Fixes for Afterfire:
  • Change to a different non-alcohol or alcohol brand fuel. Gasoline that contains alcohol has a tendency to ignite easier, which can cause afterfire.
  • Ensure proper carburetor adjustment for optimal engine performance.
  • Check the anti-afterfire solenoid for proper operation. If equipped with an anti-afterfire solenoid, shut engine off at full throttle.

since this is new i would call dealer..

like others have mentioned, throttle down before shutting off and see if it still happens.

warranty?
