It should slow down some as it is under a load. As long as it throws the snow far enough no problem. If not the speed governor may need adjusting. Make sure you have fresh fuel.

SOURCE: craftsman snowthrower will not throw snow

I have the same machine and it sounds like the belt is indeed slipping.  If the belt is not worn or stretched too badly, you can perform a small adjustment on the idler-wheel (the thing that controls belt tension) by sliding back the plastic cover on the spring that is attached to the bottom of the lever-cable and tightening the nut so that there is less slack in the cable.  If the nut is all already all the up, then you need to replace the belt, which can be easily accessed by removing the plastic cover in front of the motor under where the spare shear pin compartment is located.  There are two bolts (one on each side) that need to be removed and then the cover just pulls off.  This will expose both belts.  The front one is for the auger drive and the rear one is for the wheel drive.  The belt can be easily replaced without any further dis-assembly by simply removing and replacing it in the reverse manner.  Don't forget to readjust the spring so that excessive tension is not applied to the new belt.  Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Model 42 snowthrower throws more belts than snow.

what might be happening is that somthing is seezing as you are using it, a smoking belt meens that either the motor has seezed at some point and has burnt the belt, this in turn has made the belt thinner so will slipp allot, but i think the main problem is a bearing is seezing when it gets hot, thats possibly why it last a while then runs the belt, move the pullies in and out up and down to see if there is movement in them if there is they will need replacing, also feel if they are smooth when turned by hand, listen to them and see if you can hear a bit of graunching this is also a give away that the bearings are u/s...hope that helped

SOURCE: engine runs great but as

Sounds like an engine that either isn't fully warmed up or the choke improperly set.

A friend of mine gave me a zr series ,625cdv homelite weed eater and I can't figure out how to adjust the carb. Bought a new primer bulb it crank and run for a little bit but I have to idle it high


Screw in the HIGH and LOW needle valves. Then turn each one out 1 full turn, That should be a good starting point.
After engine is running Run engine at Full throttle. Loosen HIGH screw until the engines RPM slows a bit. When that happens Turn screw back in until it revs high and then just starts to slow again. You do not want the engine to run at it's highest RPM or it's not getting enough Lubrication It need to run Rich, that's why you screw the screw in a bit after the engine has reached it's highest RPM. Let it idle down . Then Accelerate hard, if it hesitates, loosen or tighten the LOW until it accelerates quickly with no hesitation.

My 2.0 engine idles fast on a cold start. Then idles down after warming up.


This is normally the way it is suppose to work. You need to have the RPM measured for High RPM and duration. What you are describing is how an electronic choke is suppose to work.

The errors would be how high the RPM goes and for how long it lasts. When cold the RPM, fuel mix and timing are changed to give a rich fuel mix. As the O2 sensors warm(Could be defective) they signal the engine to lean up. The water thermostat also has something to do changing the engine to a lean running slow condition.

If obtaining heat from your heater seems to take Forever, the thermostat could be weak. This would coincide with the engine continuing at a high RPM longer because it is not warming up.

I put the choke on at idle and the engine shuts down.


Hi, Bobby and the usual suspects are:
1. Fuel cap or fuel tank is not venting properly.
2. Fuel filter clogged.
3. Fuel line pinched or kinked.
4. Float needle and seat sticking.
5. Float level too low.
6. Carburetor bowl vent line clogged/blocked/pinched.
7. Idle adjusting ***** set too low.
8. Air/fuel mixture ***** set too lean.
9. Idle port, transfer ports, slow air jet clogged.
10. Slow fuel jet clogged.

I have a toro snowblower with a 2 cycle engine. When it's just running under no load it seems fine(maybe a little too high of rpm). When it starts throwing snow it gradually slows down until it quits...


It sounds like it is running lean. Back out your carbuerator adjustment screws a quarter turn counterclockwise. These settings should be 1 and a quarter on low speed (closest to engine block) and 1 and a half on high speed (farthest from engine block). These are starting points the adjustment may vary a little eigther way. Never adjust for max rpms that is too lean and will cause engine failure. Hope this helps ya.

Have a toro power stage max model 826LE electric start, runs irre


Sounds like carb. may need adjusting. Take the heat box off to expose carb., there should be 2 adjustment screws- 1 on the bottom of the bowl and 1 on the side of the carb just above the edge of the bowl ( depending how the carb sets off the engine - if the carb comes straight out it will be on the side facing towards the front of the snow blower or if it goes towards the handles then standing other side of the snow blower the screw will be facing you), turn both screws in til they just bottom out the turn them out 1 1/4 turns out then start the machine. While the machine is running at low idle turn the screw on the side of the carb. in (clockwise) a little at a time listening for the engine to start to rev up and then start to rev down, bog or studder then turn back slightly to bring idle back up. Once the idle is up then the screw on the very top of the carb. turn that out to lower idle to a normal idle. Repeat those adjustments till you cant get the idle to go up anymore. Now for the screw on the bottom of the bowl- move the throttle up to max and turn the screw in till you hear it rev up higher and starts to bog or sputter then turn it back slightly to bring the high rev to a smooth rev. That should take care of it. If it does not solve it then the carb may need cleaning then the adjustments done again. If you need more help on this please feel free to ask. Sometimes you have to do process of elimination and you start with the easiest first. Also the adjustments should help with the carbon build up on the plug.

Snow blower gets bogged down in snow.


It sounds like your engine is running lean, see if you can adjust the high throttle mixture on the carburetor (if possible at all). If there is no adjustment possible, it may be the carb is clogged and needs some service. Try cleaning it or find a new replacement carb for it.
