Won't Start and Lost Electric Start Cord

I adopted the Toro S620 Electric Start Snow Blower. It's been regularly maintenanced by the prior owner (family). I can't get it to start and don't have the electric start cord available. When I pull the cord it sounds like it's just about to turn over and start the engine but never gets there. Is it a spark plug? How can I fix myself? Thanks!

Hi Patti, If you can not pull the cord more that what you said, try removing the spark plug and see if that makes a difference, if not, leave the spark plug out to prevent accidental starting, raise up the front of the mower and see if you can turn the blade if not...it only gets worse from there. If you can't turn the blade from under the mower, the engine is more that likely seized up, sorry

It sounds like the starter drive may be jammed. It should not be engaged unless you are using the starter motor. Take the spark plug wire off, put on heavy leather gloves, and try turning the blade by hand to dislodge the starter drive. If it does dislodge, plug the spark plug wire back up and try the pull start again.

you'll need to pull the starter. It sound like your Bendick's is bad. that's the upper gear drive assay. the only other res ion would be, low power to the starter, and not receiving an acquit amount of amp to reach the rpm's it needs. good luck

Electric start does not work. how do i trouble shoot it?


Mine the electric cord had pulled out of the receptacle.on the blower so it was not working. I pulled it right out and reinstalled it It's ok now.
Do you have power coming to the blower or have you blown a GFI and it needs to be reset. Does the starter click or try to work? These are things that I have to know before we tear things apart.
If it buzzes it could need a gear replacement. on the starter itself.

Lost my manual for toro 418ze snow blower. cant remember how to start it


The gas is bad. You have to add preservatives to it before you store it. Now you need to drain the sour gas and put in new gas. Then try to start it again.

My toro s620 will not start I replaced the spark plug still nothing won't even say anything


Well, There is nothing like a good repair shop to take care of a problem. I would recommend looking at the diagrams at a site like www.arcolawn.com and consider the carburetor rebuild kit fuel line and the primer. Inspect the parts on the machine and order replacments right at the web site.
Good luck

please vote my fix up if you find it helpful

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.
