What kind of noise? Exhaust noise or mechanical noise? If the latter,
did you check whether it had any oil in it, and put oil in it if needed?
Did you read the Owner's Manual, or are you a "real man"(TM)?
Always 4 peace:
A 30 inch snowblower will have a gasoline engine on it and will need oil
in the crank case. Where I live, most people use 5W30 simply because
it's hard to get 0W30. Both should work OK in your snow blower.
Pull out the dip stick on the engine and confirm the oil level is in the
cross hatched section of the dip stick.
(IF you ran that snow blower for any length of time without any oil in
the crank case, you may have ruined the engine in it. Please tell us
you didn't do that.)
If there's oil in the crank case, check that there is a muffler on the
engine and that it's securely fastened in place.
Did you miss the BRAND NEW part above ? My bet is that the place he bought
from it didn't service it before delivery . Though that would depend on
where it was purchased , and he should have checked things like oil , etc
before he ever started it .
Ya think we'll ever hear back what the problem is/was ? I have doubts ...
mostly because the poster is not a regular to this group .
