Ariens 28 deluxe fuel shut off dial broke off

I have the above snowblower puchased in 2014. Works great, trouble free. Today, while blowing snow, the fuel shut off valve broke off spilling gas everywhere. Very strange. Is this common? Is it an easier repair?

I wouldn't say it's common but it's cheap plastic so .... it happens.
Most just slip into the fuel line and have a compression clamp at each end. The valves can be had at a hardware or big box store usually.
Does this look like yours ?? This one is straight in line, some are 90 dregree.

2014 should be a LCT made engine, pics of it would confirm but if it is the LCT this is the one you need, Had a bad one on a used blower I purchased to resell and then I broke one over tightening it into the tank so just snug will do but this is the shutoff that screws into the tank.

OK just seen your link, YUP thats a LCT.

Sno-Tek Modded, 15"X-Track tires (Now has same X-Track tires but 13"x4" for better fit), 254cc engine LED light and hand warmers.
Snapper 6/22 sold but not forgotten. Was my first.
Ariens ST1027LE workhorse and going strong.
New 2017 Ariens Deluxe completely rebuilt after losing a fight with a forklift.

It should just be a matter of unscrewing the remaining part from the tank and screwing the new one in, slipping the line on and you're back in business.

An OEM honda shutoff valve has a provision, bracket, that you can put under a screw. If you have the ability to do that, and the original isn't held tight anywhere this may be a good replacement. These can be hard to turn if they aren't held in place.



These are just the first to links I found. I'm sure you can get them anywhere. I just wanted to give you an idea.



Here's an example:

Here's a generic example:

That's strange. What would cause something like that to happen, especially while the machine is in operation? There's no stress on it that I can tell.
