SOURCE: mtd pro snow blower runs then die

it sounds to me like either the oil pressure switch is being plugged after startup and causint the engine to quit then the plug settles until you start it again and it plugs again easiest way to test is to take the swith and remove the wire to it and see if the engine starts and keeps running, if so then replace the old pressure switch. If this does not solve the problem then the only other thing I can think of is the needle valve is partially pluged, at startup the fuel bowl is full and the engine startsbut after starting the fuel bowl runs low on fuel as it is not filling fast enough and the engine stalls. By the time you try starting it again the fuel bowl is filled again and the whole thing starts all over. Hope This Helps Don

After it sits for a while the wheels will not turn and are stuck?


Hi William:
Snowblowers tend to get a lot of wet slushy use and if the are put away wet they can easily rust. Try to make sure all the mucky stuff is cleaned off (air hose works great) and spraying penetrating oil or WD-40 generously over all the moving bits except belts never hurts.

The tecumseh carburetor on my mtd snowblower is leaking gas from the throttle hole on the side that is facing away from the engine . the carb is new and so are gasket i cant stop the gas leak


Gas is coming out of the area where the air filter would go IF a snowblower had a filter....That happens when the Needle valve is stuck open for some reason. Either the Float that closes the valve has a leak and sink in the gas or the needle is slightly rusted in the carb in the open position. you need to take the bowl off the carb and see if you can easy lift the Float and see the needle valve moving up and down. A;so see if there is gas in the float. There shouldn't be

MTD Snowblower starts good but runs very rough


Carb adjustment. There is usually a HIGH and LOW fuel mixture adjustment on the carb. Sounds like the LOW needs to be adjusted. Do a search on the Internet for a service manual for your particular model/make. Simple job IF you have the manual there for guidance.
Good Luck

Mtd snow blower,8hp 2 stage, 1995, Problem: oil leaking on axles, and on casing wear axle come out.wheel stop turning , no gear selection. could you direct me ???


The oil leak normaly would make the 'friction disc' inside the frame slip so as to not drive the axle.
Locate the oil leak
#1 engine crankshaft seal
#2 engine crankcase cover gasket
#3 engine overfull so that the excess oil is coming out of the crankcase breather tube and running down inside the frame

Possibly cut a very short piece of the old fuel line off and put it back on the fitting with one of those small spring type hose clamps.

Auger stopprd working on an MTD snowblower.


The manual has a step by step procedure for adjusting the cables for the auger, speed selector and drivewheels. One socket wrench and about 10 min should do it.

My Yardworks is an MTD product and it's manual should be similar to yours. If you lost it, you can download it from MTD's site.
