Todays gas is horrible for gumming up after a few months. You need to clean the carburetor.
This description is for many 4 cycle engines.. it Might help The jet in the Carb is gummed up. Take that 1/2" bolt off the bottom of the Bowl..That IS the Jet. Many times the Bowl will just hold in place with the Bolt out.. make sure the three holes are clear. 2 are close to the head of this bolt and you should have a 3rd real small hole where the threads end. Screw it back in...see what happens

    glad you are good to go when the snow falls. Run the Blower totally dry next Spring. Although the residual still might clog the Jets.

Won't start. Even using electric start function.


try a spritz of Starter Fluid, if it tries to start then you know you need to clean the carburetor that was probably ruined by ETHANOL gas

Snow blower runs well then dies to a rough idle


Sounds like it has dirt or water in the carb and is slowing down the fuel flow and starving the engine of fuel.

Runs for 10 minutes and stops


When running is the idle smooth or up and down?
Is the chock operating, or adjusted after the motor gets warm?
Is the carburetor needle adjusted after the engine idles to warm as it should be to be set correctly.
Are you blowing snow when it dies or at idle?

Engin wont stay running after it starts


How long does it run? A few seconds or minutes? Sounds fuel related. Generally rebuilding or replacing the carburetor will fix it if it starts and dies after a few seconds. If it runs for a few minutes then we need to look at something else for the issue

Will not start even withew gas


Try a spray of starting fluid into the carb. If it fires you know you have good spark. If it did not fire replace your spark plug. If it still won't fire point and condensor need to be replaced. If it did fire spray the starting fluid in the carb a few more times to pull the old fuel through the fuel line til the new gas gets through the carb and then it should run. Some machines have a fuel shut off valve make sure it is open.

Toro snowblower wont start. seems like the fuel isnt getting into carb.how and what can i do


Reference your toro snow blower. does it start and run for a few swconds then die. if so It may sound crazy but loosen the gas cap just a bit. I had the same issue with my snow blower and a friend gave me the solution. It works great now.

I have a Toro S620 snow blower, I push the primer bulb and it starts right up then dies. If I keep pushing the primer bulb continualy it will keep running but the moment I quit it dies.


The carburetor bowl needs to be taken off and most likely the float and needle need replacing. When you prime the carb, this is shooting gas straight to the carb instead of traveling though the jets. This is a very easy task, but I know if you're using a snow blower you need it quick. The kit is about $5 and be sure to take your machines info with you.
