SOURCE: i have a toro ccr 3650 snowblower the electric start just grinds

This problem has been solved! I took the covers off the machine, removed the starter and eventually replaced the drive. Apparently the drive parts were put on back ordered and took about 4 weeks to get the drive set. One thing I suggest if anyone does this is to look at the fly wheel to insure it's in good working order. The dealer I worked with said often that is chewed up (the teeth on the fly wheel) and leads to a bigger headache. Fortunately mine was just fine. The machine now works likes like new as I put in a new spark plug as well!

SOURCE: Toro Lawn Mower Electric Start Won't Engage

you'll need to pull the starter. It sound like your Bendick's is bad. that's the upper gear drive assay. the only other res ion would be, low power to the starter, and not receiving an acquit amount of amp to reach the rpm's it needs. good luck

SOURCE: electric starter not working on Toro

I've had the same problem (I think) - the starter will not activate. First time, I found the fuse that's attached to the battery "tray" had corroded. For that I put a good coating of silicone dielectric grease on the fuse contacts and holder. This keeps moisture out. With that it was good for a few months. Now it's gone bad again. This time the fuse is good, but the battery is dead, and so dead that it won't recharge. Apparently the cause of the discharge was/is grass and moisture finding its' way into the battery area, and providing a conductive path between the battery terminals. I was recharging it regularly, following the owners manuals' instructions, so it's definitely not a negligence problem caused by me.
So, obviously what we have is a design flaw in the mower that allows grass clippings to get into the battery area. Time for a recall, but for a quick fix for your current pioblem, you might just find the fuse is corroded, and a replacement + non-conductive grease may be all you need to git'er going.

SOURCE: Toro Personal Pace Mower won't start w/ electric starter

There are a couple of things you can check;

First, check to make sure the bendix is engaging. It is the gear that meshes with the fly wheel.

If it is, then try and see how fast the motor is spinning. Don't look at the blade though. It could be a faulty starter motor.

Make sure to also check the battery voltage with a volt meter. It should read at 12.0 or higher.

I HAVE A TORO S-620 SNOWTHROWER.it was running fine but stalled and now pully rope won't release and won't start using electric start.any ideals as to why?


It may have stalled due to flooding and the pull starter wont work because the engine is hydrolocked. Take off the spark plug and see if the pull starter frees up. If it does than I think your electric start will work again as well. The cause of the hydrolocking may be a hung open float in the carb. Which maybe due to fuel gelling in the carb from long periods of sitting. So the Chem-Tool idea is a good one but I would also check the carb by having someone take the carb bowl off and looking for gelled fuel.

I have a toro snow thrower 622 that is leaking fuel. its coming from under the unit fast. any ideas to why and how to repair?


a rapid volume leak could indicate a cracked/rotted fuel hose. Not uncommon for a gasoline engine that sits for long periods of time between use. If all hoses seem in order a stuck float valve(needle & seat) in the carburator would also cause rapid overflow of fuel. This willm require a carb overhaul to repair

2007 Lawn Boy model 33006 snow thrower - when I push the electric start it makes a grinding sound. Would it be the starter motor or the drive starter?


check the bolts that hold the electric starter to the housing, if loose tighten them, if they are ok, try to get some lubricant on the shaft of the starter, the bendix spring may be stuck....

Craftsman single-stage snow thrower hard to push


You can adjust the guides on the side of the blower so that it rides on those. If they are set to low you will see the problem you have now. If they sit to low for a long period of time you can wear out the blade on the bottom.

Toro Max 1028LXE Snow Thrower will not travel. Engine runs great, and the two stages of the thrower works but will not move. It was working for about two hours but now it isn't


thank you for the reply. with the belt drive take a ruler and push the belt down you can use your finger as a referance point if you can push it past the half inch mark the belt needs to be tightend you can do that by adjusting the belt tensioner thats done by losening the bolt that holds it in place then moving it so there is no more then half an inch of play in the belt and retightning the bolt. and if the tensioner is at its stops then the belt needs replacement.

Snow thrower won't throw snow


the problem could be the snow is to heavy for the motor to keep up, if thats the case you may need to upgrade to a more powerful model or try not to overload it. take it a little slower so the motor can keep up. but try tightening the belt. with your pointer finger push down on the belt it should have about a half inch give, if it moves more than that its too loose and probably slipping under load
