    I have the same problem with a craftsman 24" 8HP two stage snowblower, but when I turned it over, there is no plate - it has a solid unit that looks like a motor. Do I need to replace that? (gear box? clutch)?

SOURCE: I have a yard machine snowblower that will not start

If the engine is infact seized, then it will have to be re-built or replaced. It was probably run with very low or no oil at all. You may be able to get a short block for your engine. All you would need to do is reuse your cylinder head, flywheel, carburetor, ignition modual, recoil houseing, fuel tank, governor linkages and controlls. The engine block and all internal parts would be replaced. It is far cheaper to just replace the engine rather than re-build it unless you are able to do it yourself and save the labour cost.

SOURCE: MTD snowblower with Tecumseh engine 8 hp stalls out when chock is adjusted to run position

hello ,your engine is a tecumseh HMSK90-156525D, Sounds like carb. may need adjusting. Take the heat box off to expose carb. the heat box is the metal box surrounding the caeb., 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.692509.pdf (application/pdf Object)
i have included the manual to give you a good understanding of the carb, page 7 to 25, hope this helps,don't forget the 4 thumbs up,any comments welcome,thank you.~~

SOURCE: we have a yardworks snowblower and when not using the wheels always lock up. how do you unlock them without turning on snowblower.

Had the same issue and found out that the wheels lock when the motor isn't running and the accelerator handle is engaged. I still had both handles tied down from transporting home and it rolled fine after they were untied. Hope that helps

How do I fix my snowblower when the wheels won,t move ahead or back


Sounds like gear on axle shaft broke shear bolt or key. Take bottom plate off base of snowblower.It is ok to tip snowblown up on front end so wheels are in air. After plate is off turn wheels and see if drive gear is moving with axle. If not key way or bolt has broken off, replace and will be back in motion.

I have a MTD snowblower yard machine.how to adjust


There should be metal shoes on the side of the snowblower. They have adjustment bolts that allow the auger housing to move up and down. loosen them and adjust to how close you want it to the ground. It also depends on the model. This process only applies to large self propelled models which are a two stage snowthrower. if its a small single stage there is usually no adjustment.

Snowblower stuck in gear


The issue here is likely related to the "linkage". Linkage is the parts (often a cable or metal rods) that connect the shifter to the actual part(s) inside the snowblower that need to physically move to change speed and direction of the machine.

You'll need to carefully inspect the entire linkage to locate missing or worn cotter pins, bolts, etc. You may need to open the underside on the snowblower to inspect and access the entire linkage. These are typical parts that are used to keep the linkage connected to the shift handle and internal wheel assembly. The linkage isn't usually complex - often a pin or threaded portion that passes thru a hole in an assembly - that is held in place with a cotter pin, bolt, etc. Simply move the shifter so that the linkage can be secured properly and you should be "good to go".

Good luck!

Yardman snowblower won't self-propel


Do not start to do this but put the blower in gear like you would run to drive its self and try to turn the wheels by hand and if they turn easily then you may have a shear pin that is broken or missing in the drive pulley.
Just a thought.

Snow blower won't roll


Don, If no neutral, it will not roll easily. You can remove bottom cover and make sure gears and bearing are lubed up and not misaligned on shaft, if they are replace faulty bearing.

I lose power and stall when i engage clutch to spin snowthrowing blades on my mtd 24" two stage snowblower. any way to fix?


You probably have a small rock or stick jammed in the smaller throwing auger. Carefully rotate the small auger backwards using a stick/board and tapping with a light hammer till the jamming object pops out. Be careful not to place your hands or fingers in even if it is not running. Worst case scenario the worm gear that rotates the larger auger is broken and jammed and needs replacement. If both augers move freely then you will have to remove the cover under the motor and inspect the belt drive mechanism.
