Question about Toro Super Blower Vac

Open Question

Motor smoking Smoke started coming out of the housing from the motor as the power began to die during short use. I shut it off right away and opened it up. Is the motor done? Ive only had it for about 2 1/2 years...If the motor IS done should I just get a new blower or replace the motor..any help would be appreciated..Thanks..Paul

    When I opened it up there didn't appear to be any debris. It is an electric blower. I paid about $50.00 from Home Depot. Is it cheaper to get a new motor and install it myself or should I just get a new blower?

Does someone know how to shut off the electrical plug at the bottom of a v-twin briggs and stratton. I think this is causing my motor to smoke bad out the exaust. thanks


Are you refering to the solonoid on the bottom of the carb? That is an anti backfire device. It will not cause the motor to smoke. If it has failed the motor will not run; the solonoid prevents fuel from entering the main jet.
There are several things that wil cause a motor to smoke. First check for fuel in the crankcase. To check for fuel in the crankcase, it is hard to see on the dipstick, remove the dipstick and VERY CAREFULLY away from anything flammable and away from the motor hold a lighter to the dipstick. If the dipstick lights it has fuel on it, a lighter will not ignite oil. Blow out the flame and wipe the dipstick clean with a rag before inserting back into motor. A worn needle or debris in the needle will cause the carb to flood. It will fill the crankcase and muffler with fuel. To cure this you will need to rebuild the carb and change the oil. Installing a shut off valve in the fuel line will prevent this in the future. After the service has been done the unit may smoke for 5-10 minutes while it burns off the fuel in the exhaust.
Burning oil indicates stuck rings, overfilled oil, or worn valve guide seals ( valve guide seals will smoke on start up then clear up).
Also leaking rocker covers will drip oil on the exhaust and burn off.

I put too much oil in the mower over the past couple months. Two days ago the mower began steaming. I shut it down immediately. Today I did an oil change and cleaned the mower up but after I started it,...


If you already changed oil and it is at proper level on dip stick let it run for about 5 minutes to burn out any excess oil in cylinder, if it continues to smoke you probably blew a gasket or seal on engine.If that is the case you are looking at buying a new mower unless if it under warranty or you have a cheap mechanic.

My leaf eater starts to smoke. Where, or is there a place to oil the moter?


the electric motor should not need oiling sounds like you are running on a lightweight ext cord and under powering motor try hooking up to a plug directly into outlet see if problem persist

MY Kawasaki FH500V commercial lawn mower engine won't start.


Try cleaning the throttle body. If it runs on carb-cleaner being sprayed into the intake then you have a fuel delivery problem, if not you'd be more inclined to more serious mechanical failure. I assume if you use it every day you do the regular oil changes, air filter cleaning, and air-cooling system cleaning, correct? Please indicate if you had a white smoke, blue smoke, or black smoke from the mower too. The motor spins freely when attempting to start, and just doesn't fire, correct?

Smoke coming from motor, slows down


ASSUMING ITS A TWO STROKE. MIXTURE HAS TOO MUCH OIL IN IT. TRY DIFFERENT MIXTURE,IT'S BOGGING DOWN BECAUSE NOT IGNITING WITH A HIGH CONTENT OF OIL IN IT ON WIDE OPEN THROTTLE. MAY ALSO NEED CARB ADJUSTED. DO NOT MAKE MIXTURE TOO THIN ON OIT,YOU WILL SEIZE UP ENGINE
