Get those hard to clean condencer coils clean

Can't get your brush in to clean the condencer on your fridge, tape the big end of a funnel to your shop vac on blow or your electric leaf blower. you might want to do it outside though!!! it works really good if you dont have a compressor.

Toro model 51575. Was using it as a vacuum and it just shut off. Checked breakers ...all ok. Plugged it in direct to outlet and still nothing. What might be the problem?


If you're Toro electric blower is slowing down, throwing sparks, or not starting you may need to replace the carbon brushes. Replacing brushes and cleaning commutator early can prevent damage to motor armature!

Where can I find brushes for my Toro electric leaf blower (model 51587)? I went to the Toro site and to Partstree.com, but they only sell the motor as a unit (which costs more than a new blower). A friend tells me I can buy any brushes for my electric leaf blower that are a little larger than the originals and just shave them down to fit, true or false?

Toro replacements are hard to find because Toro does not sell them and it is tricky to make you own.
