snowblower repair

I have a Toro 20 which last spring I put away after running sta-bil thru it out this winter, ran once and would not start again. I replaced the spark plug and put a new carb diaphragm in starts, but won't stay running....any ideas ?

snowblower repair

Is the fuel valve open?

Does it stay running with the choke on?

I had a similar problem this year and it would stay running with the choke on yet stall after turning off the choke. Turned out to be a few things. Bad spark plug, needle adjustment screw was missing, stuck float and stuck throttle. Its amazing it even started with all that wrong.

Sounds like it isnt getting enough fuel.
