SOURCE: where is toro 31820 auger shear bolt?

Shearbolt is located at #54 in this diagram.

part#322-9

It may be hard to spot on the auger shaft as it may have sheared flush with the holes so look close. You may also need to remove the part of the bolt remaning inside the shaft.

Hi, You have gum or old gas in the main jet on the carb, turn your fuel off, stand the snowblower on the front blower housing with handles in the air, remove main jet from the bottom of the carb and clean. Jim

SOURCE: How to adjust the Toro 826 snow thrower

Belts will have spring tension on the idler pulleys.
Both traction and auger control cables will also have cable length adjustments to cause the travel of levers or idler pulleys to tighten belts. Adjustments are commonly located under the control panel/levers.

SOURCE: I have a problem starting my Toro Power Max 828 LE

Take a spray bottle and spray gas into the carb and see if it starts.If it starts you more than likely have a carb problem. first thing check and make sure gas is flowing to carb. Take the line off at the carb and see if gas flows through the line. If you have gas to the carb you will have to take carb off and clean it out and check to see if float is stuck closed.you might want to put a rebuild kit in it while it,s apart.

I need help starting an almost new snow blower. I bought in December of 2013 and can't get it started for the first time this year.


I would make sure that there is new fuel in the tank. Most of the time the fuel in the tank goes stale. Ethanol that is used in gasoline now loses it potency over time and will not burn correctly. Evacuate old gas and put some fresh gas in the tank and try again. Place to start anyways.

Snow thrower doesn't start up!


If you have a spark at the plug (you have checked?) it's probably fuel blockage. Check all lines, fuel filter and carburettor are clean, use a carburettor cleaner spray to get all the gum out.

Hi, will try to help. This sounds like there is ice or debris that is in around the paddle or the auger preventing to turn at full speed. Without the blower running, look all over around the paddle and auger and get out anything that might be in there. I think that is the problem. This has happened to me many times, and have repaired many like that. I hope this helps you out. All the best and good luck.

Model 826 snowblower will start and run about 20 seconds


It sounds like its not getting enough fuel. Check for restriction in fuel line, clogged fuel filter or malfunctioning carburetor. Your choke could also be out of adjustment

Last year I purchased a Troy Bilt snow blower . I used it one time after using it I drained the gas out of it. Just recently I got it out and was checking it out because they were talking about snow so it...


Cecil,
I am curious why this repair was not covered under the warranty? This snow blower has a 2 year warranty from the manufacture.

Two things for you.
First, there has always been the "what came first, the chicken or the egg" issue over leaving fuel or draining the fuel from you snow blower. Half the experts say drain it, and the other half say leave it in.
Secondly, all of the current Cub Cadet, Craftsman, Troy-Bilt, Yard Machine, and Yardman snow blowers with the Powermore engine need to be treated differently than the old Techumseh or Briggs side-valve that you were used to.
The issue with your Powermore engine is actually today's ethanol fuel. If you leave the ethanol blends in your tank without a fuel stabilizer the alcohol separates from the gas. This alcohol then rises to the top of the tank and gets into the fuel lines. The fuel lines actually will soften. (I've seen the primer bulb actually melt on a few units)
If you drain the tank and run it dry the remaining fuel will "varnish" and/or dry out the carb.
I know a service manager that repairs a lot of these Powermore motors. Instead of replacing the carb, his techs actually take the carb off, soak it overnight in carb cleaner and then reinstall it. This is so common that he keeps a few clean carbs on the shelf and then just switches them out when a customer has a problem.
So how do you keep from getting those high repair bills? First, use fuel stabilizer ALL THE TIME! Mix Sta-Bil, Sea Foam, or Craftsman Fuel Stabilizer according to the directions on the bottle. Secondly, try not to use ethanol blended fuel. Especially try to fill the tank the last time you use it in the spring with non blended fuel. Third, When you put your snowblower away, fill it with stabilized fuel, start the motor and run it until warm. Then "fog" the carb with SeaFoam spray until it loads up and quits running. Put it away for the season. (If you don't know how to fog go to SeaFoam's website and read about doing this with the spray)
It will start next fall.
Feel free to ask me any other questions about your snow blower. Don't forget to rate this answer and you are welcome to leave a comment about it.

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.
