Ariens 522EC Snow Thrower - Repair Manual Available? (Change Fuel Filter)

I have an Ariens 522EC Snow Thrower with a Tecumseh engine that is about 5-7 years old. It won't start and I'm wondering if it is a clogged fuel filter. Does anyone know if there is a service manual available free on-line or at a reasonable cost so I can get some direction in repairing it?

you can get it from Ariens.com. but what you really need is a Tecumseh manual. The only gas filter used is a screen inside the gas tank. Your problem is most likely varnish in the carb. This E-10 gas starts going bad in 30 days. You will need to remove the carb, take it apart, soak it in a carb cleaning solution, wash off with water, blow out ALL holes with compressed air, and install a new kit.
Here is the Tecumseh manual
