Deere 1028E starting problem

Hello,

I live in Green bay area. I have a 2010 John Deere 1028E. B&S motor. I have had very few problems with it.
The other day I went to start it with the electric start, this is what happened.
Pressed start button, clunk engine did not turn over.
Tried the pull start, stuck could not pull.
Rocked the blower back and forth then was able to pull the recoil.
Used electric start and it fired up.
Blew snow for 30 minutes no problem.

Two days later same scenario.

Today it is fine again.
I would appreciate any help.
Thanks

Maybe ice/snow is freezing up in the impeller housing, and the cable is too tight, so the impeller is engaged and frozen. Just a possible scenario !

I would guess ice in the recoil rope housing. Once it warms or gets knocked loose the flywheel can rotate.

Did you own this last year, did this happen last year ?
One possibility is something isn't adjusted properly. I would check for proper factory adjustment of the drive and auger cables.
Do you store it outside between uses ?

Make sure the windows are up before the snow plow goes by !!

Thanks for the welcome. I bought it new in 2010. Never happened before. It's stored in a garage that never usually gets below 40 degrees,
although it was quite cold last week about 7 degrees.

If you have an air compressor run the blow gun spout under the shrouding in and around the recoil and electric starter if you get a few puffs of stuffing type crap you might have a nest.

Thanks to all that answered. I put the snow blower in my neighbors heated garage for a few days. Then blew out the shroud as suggested. Seems to be ok now.
