craftsman snowblower flooded

i think my snowblower is flooded. it started earlier today, but I was taking it to a friends and it tipped. It wouldn't start after that. I smell gas when I pull the starter. I'm guessing it's flooded. What should I do to get it going?

When you suspect that the engine is flooded from whatever, the first thing to do is to pull the spark plug and with the kill switch set to off, pull the engine over several times to get the excess fuel out of the combustion chamber. Plus with the plug out, the gas will have a tendancy to evaporate too. Sometimes you may have to give it a few minutes to evaporate most of the gas and by then it should be ready to start.
I hope this helps.
