As LeeatCSEb said, It's your float needle and seat not shutting off the flow of gas when your carb bowl is full. Have your needle and seat replaced. Dwain

SOURCE: My troy-bilt 8.5 horse 26 inch wide snowblower wont move anymore.

Take the belt cover off that covers the drive pulley on the engine. You should only have to loosen two bolts. Inspect the belt to see what it looks like. I am not sure if it drives a gear box or if it turns a friction wheel that drives the wheels. If the belt looks good check for shear bolts that might have sheared off and replace them.

Troy Bilt 3090 snowblower surges off choke, doesnt surge on choke, cleaned the carb, jets, float, drained tank, cleaned fuel filter, fresh gas, still surges. Could it be the governor or idle jet?l

you could try opening up the idle/mixture screw another turn to make the transmission from idle to throttle better
governors just open the throttle butterfly according to the spring tension setting from the throttle lever

My Troy bilt squall 2100 snowblower does not idle steady. It races and slows while idling.

It sounds like the carb needs cleaning and readjusting, or the fuel filter is clogged. Good-Day! Remove and clean out carb, it may be dirty inside.

Excellent. Put some grease on the axle before you put it back together so it comes apart next time.

The ground broke off of the electric starter of my troy-bilt storm 2480 snow blower. Is there a way to fix it other than buying the $230 dollar replacement part?

You could just connect it as usual but provide a wire with an alligator clip on one end and the other end connected to the bare ground wires in the outlet box whenever you need to start the snowblower. An alternative ground location that is often easier for homeowners to access is to connect it to a cold water copper pipe, the external, visible ground point near the electric service, water main, cable TV, telephone, etc. Some states permit iron gas lines to serve as ground too. Check with your wiring inspector or local electrician to see what is acceptable in your town. Whichever way you choose to access ground, add this wire without disconnecting any of the others.

Once you have it wired up, the procedure is pretty simple really - you would first connect the alligator clip end of the ground wire to an unpainted, solid part of the snowblower's engine, starter motor or frame. Then plug in the power cord the way you did before the ground was broke off (orient the cord / plug as if the ground were still present). Press and hold the start button as usual until it starts. Once running, remove the 120 volt power cord first - then disconnect the grounded alligator clip. The ground clip must always be first on - last off. This way, at no time is the snowblower ungrounded when it is connected to 120 volts.

Of course, some folks will say you don't have to have a ground connected. True, it will work / start without the ground wire - but you do give up a bit of safety by ignoring it. The ground is to protect people from electrical faults - its presence does NOT effect the ability of the starter to function. I wouldn't dream of spending $230 to replace the starter just because it is missing ground wire (because it is so easy to get around the problem with my simple little fix) but I would only start it w/o the grounded alligator clip wire if I had too. For maximum protection, you should be connecting the snowblower to a ground fault protected outlet when using the electric start regardless of whether or not you're using the ground wire alligator clip.

Good luck!

2410 troy bilt snowblower wont spark

unplug the switch to make sure it isnt just stuck in off position *(internally stuck while the switch will still move) If it starts you can unstick the switch with some WD and a couple back and forths with the key.

If you still have no spark you are gonna need a new coil.

Troy bilt snowblower 123cc starting problems

Carburetor might be gummed up with old fuel. I would recommend carburetor overhaul. That should be the fix. When storing your snowblower till next use, either run the engine until out of gas or add fuel stabilizer to fuel tank to prevent fuel break down that causes damage to carburetors when not used for a long time.

I have a new Troy Bilt Snowblower. My father ran over a large extension cord while blowing snow, which in turned wrapped the cord around the auger shaft ends. I can now only get one side of the auger to...

Your snowblower has 4 shear pins keeping the front auger safe. Use the manual to locate them if you are unsure where they are and how to change them. Since your snowblower is new I am going to assume you have the manual.
Your snowblower came with 2 spare shearpins. Check up by the handles and see if they are still there. If you don''t have them go to your local Lowes, Sears, or MTD repair shop to get new ones. DO NOT USE STANDARD BOLTS!

The drive shaft coming out of the gear box is one, solid piece all the way across the snowthrower so if one side is turning there is a 95% chance it's the shear pins.
Feel free to ask any other questions. I know Snow Blowers. Please remember to rate this answer!
