Reliable Snow Clearing Expert: Snowblower Repair Services in Chicago

Chicago winters are notorious for their late-season surprises. Just when you think you’ve put the shovel away, another snowstorm rolls in! The sidewalks are slick, the wind is whipping through the trees, and your driveway is disappearing under another blanket of Chicago snow. Time to fire up the snowblower… unless it’s decided to take a winter vacation of its own. Broken snowblowers are a dreaded part of life in the Windy City, especially in late February when those surprise storms always seem to sneak in. Let’s talk about the common problems that could be sabotaging your snow-clearing efforts.

The Dreaded Symptoms: What’s Wrong with My Snowblower?

  • Engine Won’t Start: You give the cord a mighty yank, but nothing happens. It might be tempting to blame it on the frigid temperatures, but a lack of fresh fuel, a bad spark plug, or a clogged-up carburetor are often the culprits. Remember, the fuel left over from last season might not be cooperating.
  • No Power, No Snow Blowing: Your snowblower turns on but barely spits out a few pathetic puffs of powder. Check those worn-out belts and the drill for damage. It’s also possible that internal issues you can’t readily see are causing the power drain.
  • Mysterious Noises: Grinding, rattling, and whining mean something’s wrong inside the machine. These sounds could be anything from loose bolts to bearings on their last legs. Ignoring these noises won’t make them disappear – get it checked out before a small problem becomes a catastrophic failure.
  • Other Troubles: Snowblowers have a knack for finding creative ways to break down from fuel leaks to belts snapping mid-throw to jammed controls. If it doesn’t feel right, don’t ignore it – even the seemingly minor issues can worsen when battling heavy snow.

“Can I Fix This Myself?”

If you’re handy with engines, basic troubleshooting, like checking the spark plug or fuel lines, is within the realm of DIY.

That’s where the expertise of EPM Motorsports shines. Our team tackles issues that may leave the DIY mechanic stumped, ensuring a proper, long-lasting repair.
