If the snow blower isn’t starting due to a gummed up carburetor or other gum/varnish issues in the fuel system, Sea Foam will help clean it up and get it running again. Most small engine problems are caused by gum and varnish.

I’d get a can of Sea Foam High Mileage or Sea Foam Motor treatment and follow the instructions below:

  1. remove the old fuel from the tank, then drain the fuel from the carburetor (usually a screw)
  2. add a cleaning dosage of Sea Foam to an empty tank followed by a small amount of fresh fuel
  3. with Sea Foam mixed in the tank fuel, rope pull/crank or press your primer bulb 3 or 4 times to draw the fresh fuel and Sea Foam into the carburetor
  4. then let the engine sit overnight  to allow the Sea Foam to dissolve any fuel residues from the carburetor (older or excessive gum/varnish may need to soak two to three days)

Once the engine starts, the Sea Foam in the fuel will continue to clean and help restore lost engine performance.

Hope that helps!
