Depends on which Jiffy you have. Different engines on different models. Different carbs and ignition systems.

The main problem will be lack of fuel. Carb adjustment should take care of it.

A plugged exhaust will exhibit the same symthoms. But if your auger is brand new, this would not be the case.

I have seen some of the TC200 and TC300 engines that did not have the igniton coil adjusted correctly. This will interfere with the spark at the plug. A fouled spark plug will give he same problem.

There's a way of adjusting the idle screws by turning them all the way in and then turning one a quarter turn and the other some more... i wish I knew the right amount to turn it (maybe someone else on here does) but once you adjust it to that, it's a good starting place rather than guessing by gosh and by golly where your idle screws are set.

I think all you're gonna need to do is increase the idle speed a little. If you take a close look at the carb and work the trottle at the same time, you will see the screw that needs to be adjusted.

I have had to do this with every auger I have ever bought new, Jiffy, SM, and Nils.

Congrats on your auger purchase, Fishon! There's just no subbing for a power auger when the ice gets thick.

Pick up a flasher yet?
