Here in Maryland we typically don’t have much snowfall until January. This year, however, it’s already snowed twice, and my girls are really hoping for that magical white Christmas. The snow hasn’t amounted to much. Even so, it’s a good reminder to be ready.
Now is the time to bring out your Snowblower and give it a once-over. You don’t want to wait till there are a few feet of snow on the ground to discover that your snowblower won’t start. Perform snowblower maintenance and repairs now while you still have time. If your snowblower isn’t working, Sears Partsdirect has the troubleshooting, repair guides and replacement parts to ensure your snowblower is ready when the time comes.

If your gas snowblower won’t start, here are a few tips.
The spark plug is usually easily accessible. Inspecting and swapping in a new spark plug is a good first step. Check out this guide from Sears Partsdirect for full details.
A worn out auger belt is another common culprit. If your snowblower paddle slips and squeals, it may need a new belt. Again, check out Sear PartsDirect guide here.
