slipping belts? old belts?

I had the same problem. Stopped while using it. I discovered the black plastic cover over the motor was not properly seated all the way around which allowed snow to infiltrate the area. With all the moisture present it didn't take long for the carbon from the brushes to totally cake the copper contacts. Note all the ice present. After cleaning with a piece of emery cloth it's worked like new. Hope this helps those that are still having trouble. Take extra care to ensure the black cover is properly positioned before tightening the 3 screws.

The main jet of your carb is clogged and you need to open carb and clear the obstruction - spray carb cleaner on the bolt that holds the gas container to bottom of carb - also spray all the innards along with any tube that protrudes into the gas can.

Then using air compressor blow the sucker out and reassemble. That should do it.

If you have a reverse then you must have a forward. You say you are adjusting cables. Where do these cables go? There must be a lever that comes out of the transmission that allows the switching of gears from reverse to forward, look there. If cable is broken or has fallen off this may be you problem. Replace or repair cable and you should be OK. Good Luck Friend.
