Toro snowblower won't start - model 38182

Started well until just lately and now will only stay running when I press the priming bulb, as if it has no gas. Prior to this it ran at half choke only and then got better the next time, odd. Does this have a fuel filter or is this a carb float issue? My mix is correct and I've replaced the spark plug.

First take the carb off of the engine and then remove the bowl, carefully take the float off paying special attention to the needle and how it is attached to the float. Next, lightly blow air into the fuel inlet while holding your finger over the spot where the needle goes in. Use a bread tie with the paper scraped off. Stick the wire through the pick up tube at the bottom of the carb. Find any other holes and probe those holes with the wire. Then thoroughly wash the entire carb with carb cleaner then blow the whole carb off. Then put the float and needle back in making sure that when putting the bowl back on that it seats tightly all the way around the rubber gasket. Also, just before you put the bowl on turn the carb upside down to see if the float is sitting level. If it is put the bowl on, If not then the spot where the needle sits on the float has to be bent one way or the other just a little until the float sits level. After the bowl is put in place, the nut that holds the bowl on the threaded area should have two possibly three holes plus the hole down the center, probe all holes with the wire. put everything back on the motor and try again. If it still won't run then you will need a carb kit.

SOURCE: toro recycler will run until primed gas is consumed.

The problem is that the gas that sat in the carb all winter glazed it over and gummed it up. Begin by going to any auto parts store, like an aiutozone, and getting a bottle of carb. cleaner. Seafoam is one I use. Add it to your gas, one ounce per gallon of gas. Also, pick up a can of engine starting spray.

Remove the air filter and spray the engine starting spray into the air intake. Pull start the engine and give it additional squirts of engine starting spray until it runs smoothly.

SOURCE: toro personal pace mower 5 yrs old only runs 10-15 seconds.

Was gasoline left in the tank during off season? Sometimes gas will break down and clog the jets in the carb. The priming bypasses the carb so when you put fuel in by pumping the bulb it runs, but dies becasue no additional fuel is coming through the carb after the primed fuel is burned off. Sounds like you need to clean the jets in the carb and in the future, use Stabil in gasoline to keep it from breaking down.

I started this snowblower in the summer and it worked fine...both winters I've tried to use it it won't start. The first year I had it it worked very well.


So you are saying it wont run in the cold. Will it run if you left it in the house until you wanted to use it?
Are you going thru the procedure of Choking the engine ? Is there a Primer Bulb that you have to push on this machine?
I'm just saying that engines don't like the cold to begin with, just make sure you are going thru the 'Cold Start' procedure properly.

Install scarper blade toro powerlite mod. 38182


On everyone I have ever seen, there are just three bolts that go through it into the auger housing. There is a notch that the scraper has that fits on to the end of the housing. You can see the drawing for it here - http://www.partstree.com/parts/?lc=toro_consumer&mn=38182%2C+Powerlite+Snowthrower%2C+2009+%28SN+290000001-290999999%29&dn=3358-429-383366-0008
I just picked one of the models for 38182 cause i think they are likely all the same, but if you want to be sure, use the list here - http://www.partstree.com/parts/?lc=Toro+Consumer&mn=38182 and choose the one that matches your serial number range. Then select the drawing to see the rotor assembly. Should be pretty easy except sometimes the heads of the bolts to keep the scraper on get wore down if the scraper bar wasn't changed when it should have been.

Toro Power Clear 418 ZE Snow Blower won't stay started


The main jet of your carb is clogged and you need to open carb and clear the obstruction - spray carb cleaner on the bolt that holds the gas container to bottom of carb - also spray all the innards along with any tube that protrudes into the gas can.

Then using air compressor blow the sucker out and reassemble. That should do it.

Toro model number 200065 won't start. New gas, new spark plug, cleaned air filter. Doesn't feel like fuel is in the primer bulb when I prime it.


some toro primer bulbs don't fill up with fuel but blow air into a chamber in the carb that has fuel in it so when you press the bulb, the air sprays fuel into the carb ( just a little) So since it won't start, the bulb probably has a very small crack in it. replace it and then try it.

My lawn mower will not stay started


You need to check the fuel line for cracks/breaks. Check the fuel filter if it has one. If these two things are o.k., then you will need to clean the carb. It probably has debris in it.
