The answer Barbara H sent is the correct answer. You can warm the 2 starters with a hair dryer to speed up the defrosting.

The manufacturer advises engaging the electric starter and pull the rope starter for a short time while the engine is running to remove any ice. This will make a loud noise, the manufacturer says it won't hurt the engine.

When you are using the snowthrower, snow builds up in the electric and pull starter. When you stop using the snowthrower, the snow turns to ice and jams the starters.

The snow throwers have a lot of work to do with the winter blizzards hitting the nation. A suggestion I have to help the expert provide a better answer is to add the model number to this thread. In the meantime, I did find one general answer that offers one possible cause. I attached the link below. Hope this helps!
