Question about Mtd 22" Yard Machine Push Mower
I have an 826 LE Toro snowblower. When I engage the auger drive, nothing happens. When the snowblower is in this condition, I can spin the impeller, but the augers do not turn. I had the same problem earlier tonight...I took the belt housing cover off, and really did not do anything (did not change belt, etc)...I put the belt housing cover back on, and then fired it up. The impeller/auger then worked as normal. I snowblowed the driveway, then the issue happened again. I can free spin the impeller without the auger drives turning. Both shear pins in the augers are good. What seems weird is that I can grab the impeller and pull it back and forth from the back to the front of the machine...this seems odd.
Do I have a minor problem, or is this the sign of the gearbox giving up the ghost? Why would this issue seem intermittent in nature?
Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated!
be careful, if the engine over revs it may just explode. These engines are very picky if over sped and easily blow up.
Your problem may be a broken throttle control rod, have look at that first. If the control rods are fine and in place it could be the fly wheel governor is worn out.

>>The Following is a Basic Instruction File I Made for Checking the Coil/Ign Coil/Magnetron/Armature on Small Engines. Any Input is Appreciated.
>>**To Check the Ign Coil; Remove the Spark Plug/s.
>>With a Good Plug, Wrap a Wire Around the Threads of the Plug and Attach the Other End of the Wire to the Engine Block. >>Remove the Blower Housing (metal engine cover). The Wire that is Connected to the Coil/Ign Module from the Shut Off Switch needs to be Removed (unplugged) from the Coil/Ign Module.
>>Now Check for Spark at the Plug.
>>If Spark, then the Shut Off Switch or the Wire is Bad.
>>If Still No Spark, then the Coil/Ign Module is Bad. If there are Safety Switches on this Unit and the Coil is Good; you Need to Check the Safety Switches for Being Bad and Check the Oil Guard Switch also.**
>>If you have a New Coil/Ign Coil and Still No Spark, then
>>Turn the Coil Over and Check for Spark. Ign Coils are Wound 1 Way for Clockwise Engine and the Oposite Way for Counter Clockwise Rotation Engines. I have Seen Ign Coil Boxed Wrong and Turning the Ign Coil Over will Correct the Problem.
>>The Coil is Gapped to .015in from the Flywheel.
For Better Assistance;
>>Send me the Make, Model and Type or Spec Numbers Off the Engine, Please. With these I can Locate the Proper Manual and Better Assist you.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If I Missed Something or you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

empty the fuel bowl & tank. start out with fresh fuel for one. then get a new spark plug if it still dont start. as far as the cable thats another deal completely but it shouldnt cause it to stall out. but if it ran last year it will this year too. always run it empty for summer storage. its your personal choice if you use a summer storage lubricant.

The bearing can be a bugger to remove....and it sounds like the bearing may also be bad... so you will want to replace that also...
To get it off make sure that the set screw(s) are backed out with an allen wrench...the set screws will be in a small hole in the lip of the bearing....an allen wrench is a six sides wrench that comes in many sizes... the screws may also be a metric size...
then to remove the bearing you will need to use a gear puller that will grab the bearing equally with thre jaws and the use the shaft for leverage as you turn the screw to pull the bearing off of the shaft...
You will bugger up the shaft if you keep trying without the proper tools and then you will really have a mess on your hands...

Yes there are 2 belts one for the drive and one for the auger. If you remove the cover on top that is located between the engine and the auger housing you can check the belts. The auger belt has come off the pulley or is broken. Hope this helps you out. Best regards and good luck.
