Electric snowthrower motor turns, blades don't

Three weeks old and worked fine until today.. fourth snowfall to clean up and all of a sudden,while workin hard, the blade stopped spinning and the motor didn't. Before I take it apart I wonder is there a shear pin or belt that drives the blades?

Blade turns until you push against tile


You may have some burnt windings in your motor. If so, you'll have to replace the motor.

My electric lawnmower sometimes does not start, just humms. Then I TURN IT OVER, AND TURN THE BLADE A LITTLE BIT. the blade feels hard at first but soon feels loose. then it wil start as normal


The lawnmowers electric motor has a bad spot on the armature. You need to replace the electrical brushes that contact the motor. If you are lucky you may just need to clean them and reinsert them in to brush holders.

Is this a gasoline powered motorcycle/scooter? If so and if you got off in dirt, the carburator may have dirt in it. Drain the gasoline, clean the jets in the carburator and try again. If its electric, sorry, can't help!

Vitamin 3600 canister leak


I think it's the little washer in the blade assmbly since mine was worn to a sliver when it started doing what yours did. I replaced it with a similar washer and it worked for a week and then started spitting out metallic dust until it stopped working again. Could be the bearing seized. I would say yes a new blade assembly but I hadn't found one- since I have a 3600 which is very old-when my husband bought a used replacement container with a working blade assembly on ebay. $37 bucks, problem solved.

Clothes smell after drying


I don't think the problem lies with the dryer, I would suspect the washer has mold, this is especially true on front load washer, they make products designed just for this problem, check with a large retailer, not sure who makes the mold and mildew remover, I think Home Depot or Lowes may have the product or know about it..

After a heavy snowfall, I turned on the windshield wipers and now they don't work.Yes I had heavy snow on the windshield


Check for a blown fuse. With the heavy snow, the blades probably were prevented from moving which would have caused the wiper motor to overheat and blow a fuse.

Toro s 200 snowthrower electric start when air is cold elec start wont work when warm electric start will work but who needs a snowthrower when its warm electric is a 110 start.....no battery...


Can you hear the motor run when you try to start it when it's cold? If so then it could be in the drive mechanism. I had one that I thought had a bad bendix in the starter. Here it has a rubber disc that turns the starter sprocket. I removed the retainer, took off the sprocket. Cleaned everything and re-assembled, and low and behold it worked. A new starter was over $100.00. Now if yours doesn't even turn when its cold, I'd look into the starter push button, or key switch for bad connection.

Grinder blades dull


I may be having the same problem. My coffee grinder has had more leftover beans in it more and more this week, until finally today, possibly a quarter teaspoon passed through to the filter basket and the remaining beans were still very much beans. My first assumption was the blades.
