I have the 88691 and went to use it for the first time just before a big snow storm. It starts. That's about all it does. The engine is barely turning over even after 5 minutes warming up. I had a repair appt for today but it was cancelled - due to the snow. I managed to get another appt at the end of next week - but I need to run the blower now. This unit is brand new, good gas, and it acts like it has no fuel supply. I'm not aware of any gas valve (like my generator has), the throttle is set to high, choke off. I primed it 3x before electric starting it, it catches, I take off the choke, but it NEVER speeds up to running speed.
Is there anything I can do today to fix this?
