I've had a similar problem before just to find out that the gas cap on the tank wasn't breading right so the gas fead wasn't strong enough. Loosen your gas cap and try again.

I had the same trouble and the same snow blower and i fixed it by removing the hose intake to the carburetor and rerouting it to the gas tank away from the engine block. I think it was having gas lock.I also relocated the gas tank bolting it to the handle bars on a 2x4 piece of wood.

I hope this works for you.

Good luck
