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).

SOURCE: yard machine 21'' push mower runs 2 to 3 seconds cuts off.

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...

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.

Need to find correct spark plug for Troy-Bilt #42027 Snow Thrower.


Several engines were available, you need to look for the number on your current plug - easiest method.

otherwise, you will need to give the motor manufacturer and nameplate info (Tecumseh SnowKing 8HP?)

MTD Snow Blower will NOT start up!


fuel float stuck --- need carburator repair -- to check it has spark then pull spark plug --- if wet blow off spark plug and check spark on plug then squirt a small fuel out of oil can into plug hole and put plug back in -- if engine fires on first pull carburator needs fixing -- check by squirting fuel in carburator with oil can and see if you can keep it running

I just bought a Sears Craftsman snow blower,put gas and oil in it.Itried to pull the starter cord but it will not pull. I then tried the electric starter but it just grinded.Why won t it start?


Sounds like a serious flooding issue, perhaps due to having blower on its side, take out spark plug and place plastic bag over and try pulling over, be careful that it doesn't spark and ignite any fuel expelled out of cylinder.
if that is the case pull over several times blow off plug and try again, fuel might be trapped in muffler so be aware of spray, ignition.
If it doesn't pull over with the plug removed take it back as a valve might be sprung.

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.

My yardmachine snow blower 8hp auger won't turn. I replaced the cable and belt but it still won't turn. What else could be wrong?


Check the auger shear pins replace if necessary with correct parts(not regular bolts).
If auger and the impeller are not turning your cable is out of adjustment.
If only the auger doesn't turn, and the shear pins are ok then the brass/bronze gear has shredded which is why proper shear pins must be used. Donyboy73 on youtube show how to replace that gear on an older but similar MTD affiliated blower.
