Just got a like new compact 22. Was only used a few times in the last few years. I had to take spark plug out and spray starting fluid to get it started. Plug was very gas soaked. When it did start it was full throttle with flames shooting out the exhaust. I moved the snowblower under power and worked fine but it can’t run that fast can it? Is there a way to bring down the engine speed? I’m afraid it’s going to blow up as fast as it was running. I have a call and email into ariens customer service but have received nothing back. Any ideas?
