Question about Mtd 22" Yard Machine Push Mower

Open Question

I have the Yard Machines 8hp snow thrower. I changed the spark plug, tried electric & pull start, but no luck. It was outside in the open for the last 2 years without being used (gas tank was kept empty).

Tip the mower up on it's side with the dipstick tube on the down side and collect it in a suitable container. The gas you can do the same. When I drain old fuel, I mix it with a lot of fresh fuel and a bottle of dry gas then run it in my car.

Hi,
The bearing can be a bugger to remove....and it sounds like the bearing may also be bad... so you will want to replace that also...
To get it off make sure that the set screw(s) are backed out with an allen wrench...the set screws will be in a small hole in the lip of the bearing....an allen wrench is a six sides wrench that comes in many sizes... the screws may also be a metric size...

then to remove the bearing you will need to use a gear puller that will grab the bearing equally with thre jaws and the use the shaft for leverage as you turn the screw to pull the bearing off of the shaft...
You will bugger up the shaft if you keep trying without the proper tools and then you will really have a mess on your hands...

SOURCE: My MTD 10hp auger will

Yes there are 2 belts one for the drive and one for the auger. If you remove the cover on top that is located between the engine and the auger housing you can check the belts. The auger belt has come off the pulley or is broken. Hope this helps you out. Best regards and good luck.

Most likely cause is a failed ignition coil (reason that there is no electricity going to coil is that the coil generates electricity from magnets in rotor). Fairly simple to replace.

Will not start


Can't do much till you know if it's fuel or spark delivery. If stored a long time change everything. Remove plug and insert into wire cap. Lay threads on engine block in a dark area, and pull starter cord. Don't hold plug w/ your hand! Spark should be obvious jumping electrode. No spark means at least an electrical problem, but usually spark is there and prob. Is w/ fueling. Look/listen/smell for fuel delivery while turning over w/ plug removed. Very common cause is fouled/old plug, or bad gas due to long storage w/out fuel stabilizer.

It just quit running...sounds like it's trying to start...It has gas and oil and the filer is clean....


Check for spark, try pulling the wire and hold it near the engine while trying to start it, look for a spark to jump. If no spark replace the wire or the ignition coil. If you get spark try replacing the spark plug. if you get spark you should also pull the spark plug and see if the end of the plug looks wet if its not wet you aren't getting fuel and I can make some other recommendations.

YARD MACHINES 5.5. electric start 21-INCH SINGLE STAGE SNOW THROWER. Throttle wire is stuck, therefore now the blades will not move. How do I fix it?


prolly have to replace it, but you can try spraying P.B. lubricant on either end where the cable enters the jacket and working the cable back and forth untill it frees up; this has worked in the past for me on all sorts of jacketed cables, BE PATIENT AND ALLOW THE LUBE TO DO IT'S JOB, if you try to force it you could end up causing more damage to other components

Snapper electric start snow thrower won't start


if it is stalling, first change the plug as it could be flooding because you do not have hot enough spark. Never hurts to change plug anyway. Make sure you gas is good if it is old this could cause this..

Another thing to check is if you have spark and it starts and stall right away you could have a bad key under the flywheel . if this is broke it will throw the timing off. a good way to check this is this, take out the plug and remove the cover around the flywheel. this is the cover that has the rope on it. after you remove the flywheel cover and the plug you can stick a pencil in the cylinder where you took out the spark plug, then turn the flywheel by hand and as the magnet turns by the coil or magneto your pencil should come out of the whole indicating the piston in the up posistion. When the magnet on the flywheel passes the coil this must be on the up stroke of the motor or compression stroke so to say. when the magnet passes this is what causes to plug to fire. If your key is broken the flywheel will slip and it may try to fire when the piston is not all the up(timing off) the motor will never run. This is a fairly simple job and should only take an hour or so. you may need a wheel puller to do it or be very careful.

good luck

Tecumseh 8hp HIGH REVING! snowblower


Hi,

be careful, if the engine over revs it may just explode. These engines are very picky if over sped and easily blow up.
Your problem may be a broken throttle control rod, have look at that first. If the control rods are fine and in place it could be the fly wheel governor is worn out.

** Help Starting **Yard Machine 21inches 139cc


amiseybold;

First check for spark. Remove the spark plug. Leave the spark wire connected. Hold the plug against the metal of the mower engine so you have a ground and can see the gap of the electrode where the spark jumps across. Have someone pull the starter cord and verify that you have a spark. Hold it by the threads of the plug so you don't get a little spark jolt yourself.

go to an auto parts store and get a can of starter spray (it's actually ether), Remove the lawnmower spark plug and spray a little ether in the plug hole. Put the plug back and tighten it and see if it starts.
It will probably start, run for 5 or 10 seconds and then die. Repeat this procedure once or twice again and eventually it will start to draw gas from the lawnmower tank.

A seasonal tip. when you put the mower up for the winter, **** the remaining gas out of the tank, start the engine and let it run until it uses up the gas in the carburetor. This will make iot much easier to start in the spring

Hope this helps Good Luck Loringh PS Please give me a rating
