    It's a Sears...that explains why it gives you trouble.

    Frozen snow blower starter?!:wow:

    Real easy fix for that....just let the wifey back inside for a while, let her have some hot tea while she fixes you some snacks, and then make sure she has a nice pair of mittens and a sweater on before she heads back out to keep pulling on that recoil rope!:whistling:

    You do have a "back up" shovel, right? May as well call the chiropractor now and make that appointment for Monday. On the other hand maybe you can call Sears and they will send someone out right away! :rofl:
    Just kidding. I actually have a lot of shoveling to do as well. But the way I see it the Mrs. is always complaining that she doesn't get enough exercise. Today is her lucky day.

    That happened to me after clearing wet heavy snow.

    I bought one of those paint stripper guns; a cheap one. I set it to the lower heat, and in about 20 seconds, the starter works.

    You could probably do just as well with a hair drier; maybe take a little longer.

    The starter is small, and you only have to warm it up to about 35F.

    When you finish clearing the snow, brush it all off the the blower. Then it won't melt and refreeze when you park the blower.

    You bought a piece of crap! Next time buy a Toro.I bought a CCR-2000 single stage back in 1989 and it still fires after the first pull or second.
