You may have had no Fuel in the tank, But there may have been residual fuel left in the carburetor. It will need to be cleaned out.
Hope you get it done before the first snow fall.
Good Day.

thank you for the reply. with the belt drive take a ruler and push the belt down you can use your finger as a referance point if you can push it past the half inch mark the belt needs to be tightend you can do that by adjusting the belt tensioner thats done by losening the bolt that holds it in place then moving it so there is no more then half an inch of play in the belt and retightning the bolt. and if the tensioner is at its stops then the belt needs replacement.

You can adjust the guides on the side of the blower so that it rides on those. If they are set to low you will see the problem you have now. If they sit to low for a long period of time you can wear out the blade on the bottom.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: when i tip my toro

The primer bulb is replaceable (it is held in place with a ring with small tabs around it, behind the bulb). The carburetor's bowl may be loose and the bowl nut need to be tightened or the bowl nut (called that, but it is actually a small brass bolt) has an exterior washer that needs to be replaced. Another thing that may be causing your problem is the carburetor bowl-to-body gasket may be leaking and finally, the needle valve may not be completely shutting off the fuel going into the carburetor bowl. All of these parts are replaceable and the carburetor can be fixed to where it will not leak. The key is to determine exactly what carburetor the machine has. The manufacturer and model of the the engine and the year made are key here.

Snow blower will not throw snow far


I take it that you have a 2-stage snow blower, that is is has the auger blades and then the 2-stage impeller. The impeller blade is damaged <<OR>> the motor is to small to through the snow far. If you have a 5-horse engine and throwing heavy snow, the snow may not go as far as the light fluffy stuff.
A single stage snow thrower is not designed to throw snow far, just move it over a bit.

I have a toro snow thrower 622 that is leaking fuel. its coming from under the unit fast. any ideas to why and how to repair?


a rapid volume leak could indicate a cracked/rotted fuel hose. Not uncommon for a gasoline engine that sits for long periods of time between use. If all hoses seem in order a stuck float valve(needle & seat) in the carburator would also cause rapid overflow of fuel. This willm require a carb overhaul to repair

When snow is the least bit wet the blower won't pick it up and it gets cloaked in the shut. Will spraying the shut with WD40 or PAM eliminate this problem?


it sounds like you have a pretty small snow thrower, Here in northern michigan anything less than a 8 horse power will not work except on light fluffy snow. To answer your question, Yes that might help. any thing that reduces friction will make it work better. I really need a little more info before I can be of help on this. can you tell me what size (width) the blower path is, the horse power of the motor, the make of the device and also, is it one or two stage. when I hear back from you I'll try to be of more assistance.

Can't get snow thrower to start


Does it have spark ??? I would check that first, and IF it does maybe add a tablespoon of gas down the sparkplug hole then try it..

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
