Craftsman Fuel Problems

Howdy! Just got about 12" of snow last night and, of course, my ol' craftsman gives up the ghost.

I have a spark and I changed the spark plug but I suspect the fuel line.

Does the craftsman line (older...probably about '97 or so) have a fuel filter that might need changing? I removed the spark plug to see the spark and noticed that there's nothing misting out of the spark plug hole. Would that normally happen if the plug is not in place?

Don't know the model but it's a smaller one with a auger but no power drive. It's a 2 stroke and has been running reasonably well up until today.

Thanks for any help

You shouldn't see anything coming from the plug hole. Try dripping a bit of gas into the plug hole and see if it will start and run for a second or two. If so, then you probably need to clean the carb.
