It is probably the starter switch

Take jumper cables and connect the cables to the battery like you are going to jump start the battery,
make sure ignition switch is on take other leads and put the ground on metal frame of blower and put the positive (hot ) on the red wire going to the electric start to see if the starter turns the motor over

If it does then the starter switch is defective you can take it a part and see if the connections are lose
you can pick up a switch (buttn or toggle at radio shak

Good luck

MTD Mastercraft Snow King Snowblower (1997) electric starter stopped operating today (during a snow storm of course). Any ideas? Thanks. Checked cord - good condition. Power to the chord. David


It was running and stopped while using or it worked one day but not the next?
The Machine stopped running or just the electric starter? If just starter check to see if snow/ice built up around starter button.

Yardworks snow blower


Leaks are normally from bad seals or ones put on engine wrong. Many snow blowers leak oil, very common. Electric start needs to be taken apart. Rust is problem most likely. When you engage the starter it kicks out the gear to turn over engine. Carefully remove the starter from engine, try to start starter an if the pinion gear does not kick out from starter disassembly it an try to clean rust away from action. Dont break wires around electric motor careful about getting dirt an rust in winding. Try to lube spring an moving parts around gear. One other thing it could be a sheared off gear on starter also.

Electric starter will not engage when trying to start snowblower


A common problem with snowblower starters. Rust gets all around the kick out pinion gear. When you apply power the throw out gear spring or mechanism is rusted an will not operate. Take it off engine an check for broken teeth as well. Most often is rust on starter clean if you can an lube but usually there is no fix

Sounds like you coil is over heating after running a few minutes. The windings are seperating, then when it sools they make contact again. Try replacing the coil.
