Question about Toro Blowers Rake and Vac - Electric Blower/Vac - 51573

1 Answer

Snow blower is running sluggish with the choke in the on position

After the blower is started, I move the choke to the off position, but it cuts off and the only way it remains running is to move the choke back to the on position. Its not running to its full capacity and power. I have a toro, model # 38170.

    Mine is a Model S620 with the same issue, and if you attempt to use it while running this way, it dies. Seems to run good with the choke in the on position. I'm thinking that maybe because of the choke position that it may be an air issue???

It sounds like you my need to rebuild and clean the carburator. Or you have an air leak between the carb and the cylinder.

I have an older craftsman snow blower 10 hp. It starts ok with full choke, runs ok half choke, backfires with no choke-run position.


It's too lean; not enough fuel mixed with the air. Look for the main mixture screw--it should be a large screw with a spring under it on the carburetor. Run the engine until it's warm.

With the engine running, turn the screw outward (lefty-loosey) about 1/8 turn slowly and see if it improves. Slowly turn the screw back and forth until it runs best with the choke completely off. Then set it 1/8 turn richer (turn screw outward 1/8 turn) than the best position.

Reason for doing this: Conditions change, even the barometric pressure. Small engines run okay if they are a little rich but not if they are a little lean.

Start snow blower runs for 3 min. and starts to over heat checked oil its ok then stats to shut down like its not geting oil


Why do you say its over heating .Runs for 3 minutes the oil is OK .
Do you understand how the choke works .
bacsicly you prime the mechine in cold condutions 3-4 pumps choke to max throttle at 3 /1/4 .
Start backing off the choke after 3-to4 mins .
The choke shuts the fresh flow down to the engine in cold condutions ware it needs more fuel then air to run.
When the engine starts to get hot it can't run with out fresh air to mix with the gas it won't run anymore because there is to much gas and not enough air
Its simple fool prof will work everytime if you adjust it right

Snow thrower starts then shuts down after a few minutes


Hmmm... THAT sounds like you have an obstruction (ice???) in the fuel line or in the bottom of the tank.

Snow blower won't stay running


ok heres what you do to get your snow blower to keep running.
while you have it choked, and you get it to the running point, turn the cup bowl ajustment in/out a fraction at a time while you move the chock off slowly till you get the right setting to keep it running then ajust the setting once more to clear it up to purrr like a kitten again the vibration moves the screw out to set everything out of wack......
