Ariens ST824 problems


Hi, Im new here and i have an question about my snowblower

I have an Ariens ST824 tek-8hp. Ive cleaned the carb 3 times now, changed the spark plug, fresh fuel and checked the fuel line, everything seems okey. But it will only start if i put the throttle on low with or without choke. Then it will run for a bit, but i wont run smooth. If i try to give a little bit more throttle it stops and brigt white smoke comes out of the muffler.

Any suggestions?

Ayuh,... It sounds like the Hi-speeds jets inside the carb are plugged...

Ariens ST824 problems


Ive tried to clean out all the jets with a compressor, still wont run like its supposed to. I can get it to start like before on no throttle, and it will run for a second or two on full throttle, but it only ignites once a second it seems. Dark grey/black smoke comes out of the muffler on full throttle.

Any more suggestions??

Bright white smoke? Could it be water in the gas
