Over the years, I have found a few things to be true when working on about anything. Cars, boats, motorcycles, snowblowers, computers, you name it.
The first thing I check on any piece of equipment is the last thing I worked on. It's easy to leave something undone or out of place.

1. Check the simple things first. (KISS- Keep It Simple Stupid)

Won't start:
a. Is the switch on?
b. Do you have gas?
c. Is the gas on?
d. Is the plug wire on?
e. Do you have spark?
f. Is the fuel getting to the cylinder?

Won't blow snow:
a. Belts on and in good shape?
b. Controls functioning properly?
c. Shear pins/bolts intact?

That's just a quick general list and isn't intended to be a service manual.
Any hints from others would be more than welcome.

Thanks for the great advice, Charles, hopefully this can be helpful to others on the forum. As you mentioned, it is always wise to start with the little things like the gas and switches. Too often I tend to start at the complicated things, only to find that the problem lies in a simple mistake!
