What is the starting proceedure for this snowblower

I purchased the electric start from a private party who did not have the service manual and due to lack of snow during the 2014-2015 winter season, I did not use the blower. Today we have a significant snowfall and I want to use the snow blower. Can you help me with the starting sequence? Thank you

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The blower works fine - but.... After a few yards the wheel fell off. Very poor quality. I fixed the wheel with a clamp just to be able to use it.
