left snowblower outside to begin the season...

Hello friends. I left my craftsman tecumseh snowking outside on my back patio since it was under cover. It finally let loose here in central NY and now it wont start. It was a foolish idea to keep it outside, im aware of now, but is there a specific plan of action I might want to follow to get it started? Last season i put it in shed with gas and stabilizer. I didnt bring it out til last month, awaiting snowfall, and I am now letting sit inside the house to warm up. Whats next? And as always, your imput is always appreciated. Thanks Dan

A covered patio isn't a terrible place to keep it. The key to keeping it running is to crank it up and run it now and then.

I'd start by removing the carburetor bowl. It may just have stale gas in the carb that won't combust or some varnish build up from the gas sitting in it.
