Auger won't start, any suggestions?

2 posts in this topic

I have a Strikemaster Lazer mag auger which I haven't used in 2 years. I added gas today and it won't start. I recall running seafoam and stabil through the engine 2 years ago but since it has been 2 years wondering if I need to take it in and get it checked out. I live in Shakopee, any suggestions for a repair shop down this way or is D-rock my best option? Also, does anyone have any suggestions I can try out before I take it in? Thanks for everyone's help!

Did you remove the spark plug and see if its getting gas?... Carb need cleaned?

Could be a bunch of things.

The first thing I would check is to be sure its getting gas, and be sure its getting a spark!

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
