Ariens snowblower won't start

wenonahmaryMarch 1, 2007

Had my 2-stage Ariens snowblower tuned up last year but didn't try to use it until last week. It has electric start. The engine turns over but it won't start. I have the manual but there are not any troubleshooting ideas in it. The machine is about 20 years old. Any ideas?
