Toro single stage 6.5 hp snowthrower loses power after use

We have a 6.5 hp snowblower that we purchased 2 years ago. It was working fine last year but this year when we use it it works fine for 2-3 minutes and then the auger/impeller loses force. It does not propel even in a few centimetres of snow. We have replaced the gasoline and engine oil. Any suggestions?

SOURCE: snow thrower won't throw snow

the problem could be the snow is to heavy for the motor to keep up, if thats the case you may need to upgrade to a more powerful model or try not to overload it. take it a little slower so the motor can keep up. but try tightening the belt. with your pointer finger push down on the belt it should have about a half inch give, if it moves more than that its too loose and probably slipping under load

SOURCE: Toro Personal Pace self propel problem.

Your self-propel is probably belt driven. Belts can make an awfully lot of noise when unhappy. Possible it has rolled over and is running on the wrong side of the belt or is worn and just needs replaced. Hope this helps.,

No if your belt is shredding there is something rubbing on the belt. Check the idler/tightner pulley see if it spins freely. Check make sure nothing but the pulleys are touching the belt when it is engaged.

My 418 ZE Toro snowblower won't start either manually or electrically. I need to empty the gas. How do I do that?


Easiest way is to pull the fuel line from the carburetor.
If you have not started it since last year and had the gas sitting in there. You need to clean the carburetor too.

Mine does same. Wait a half hour, restart, runs good for 20 minutes and slows again. Just had it in for a tune up. Machine is only three years old.

Snowthrower. Won't even fire. Can I just clean carburetor?


See my tip on diagnosing small engines. It works for 2-stroke or 4-stroke engines.
It is best not to use starter fluid. Aerosol carb cleaner is what I use.

I have 6.5 hp toro mower and the self propelled wheels quit working. I need to know how to fix it - THANKS


Not sure which model you have, but the rear wheel drive that I have, 20070, transmission goes out every year. Toro had a real bad design on that transmission and they know it. They made a change in 2009 models to try and eliminate the problem and also give a lifetime warranty on the transmission. Model years 2006 thru 2008 has a single bearing on a half shaft and the torque of the drive belt is too much for that single bearing. I am on my second replacement and had an extreme conversation with Customer Service. Go past the first level, "Sorry It's Out of Warranty" to supervision and let them know about their product and insist they repair it. This has been going on for a month for me but I think you have to push these manufacturers to do what is right.

Mower starts fine, however have to keep priming every minute to keep running, we had this same problem last year, and sent out for repair at retailer we purchased from, new gas, filter, gas and oil. please...


You will need to check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks.

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spraywith carb.cleaner. Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals and/or jet in carb. These portals can become blocked. you may need to replace the diaphragm. Reassemble and start.

(NOTE:If the carburetor parts are more than four years old, and depending onthe use, you will need a new carb. kit if the cleaning doesn't work.)

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Toro 6.5 hp 9 year old mower. Starts Ok; surges


Sounds like your carburetor needs to be cleaned out. The surging is usually a sign of running to lean (not getting enough gas) because of possible water, rust, gum, varnish or trash in your carb. Hope that helps.....

Snowblower cuts out,


You have a single stage Tecumseh engine in that, if you look at the nut that holds the bowl on it should have the main bolt that holds the bowl and what looks like a screw going thru the center of the nut, the screw part is your high speed idle adjustment. While machine is running turn the screw in just a little at a time listening for the idle to go up. If it doesn't go up and it starts to bog then turn the screw out and listen for the same thing .when you here the idle go up then it starts to go back down then turn it back to peak and your set. It's best that you do this when it's cold so you can run it long enough to adjust, other wise it's not good to run it for any length of time in warm conditions.
