SOURCE: mtd yard machine snowthrower not starting, doesn't

First spray a prime down the throat of the carb with the choke in the run position and attempt to start. If the motor hits and runs for a second then its a fuel related issue and you will need to remove and clean the carb. If it wont run or try to run on a prime then it may be an ignition issue. check for spark. If no spark then remove the ground wire from the module and check for spark again. If still no spark suspect the module, if spark with ground wire removed then wiring or switch is the culprit.

And make sure you dont over look little things like... does it have a fuel shut off valve and is it open? Is there a safety key and is it in -place? etc.

Running only on the prime is caused by the main jet in the carburetor being blocked. This can happen if you put dirty or old fuel in it or let it sit for a long time with fuel in it. Today's ethanolated gas goes bad quickly and absorbs tons of moisture which causes water to settle to bottom of the fuel tank, which in turn prevents the main jet from lifting fuel, it picks up water instead, thus causing it to die. So, check the tank for water, drain. Check the gas can, and get rid of the old stuff. If debris in either of them, you may have to take carb apart to clean the main jet.

Is it hard to change a magneto on a 5.5 hp Tecumseh engine?


How old is the gas in the tank? If it is older than 2 months drain it out and put in fresh gas and try again. Have you seen spark jump across the spark plug gap? To check for spark I use a spark checker. One end goes to the plug and the other to the spark plug lead. If you have spark you see a light flash which is more easy to see.

MTD Chipper 242-641-000 will crank and run for a short period of time, then cut off. I can spray engine start and it will run for a few seconds.


sounds like the carburetor needs cleaning OR your gas tank Vent is clogged. Try the easy thing first. loosen the gas cap and see if the mower will keep on running.

Mtd 22" yard machine staryts and dies using prospray.


Remove the float bowl again and remove the BRASS Jet in the bottom of the venturi throat. Clean the pin hole of the Jet so that you can see through it. DO NOT force anything through it. Just clean it. Underneath the jet is the venturi tube itself. It is also unscrewed with a screw driver. Remove it and clean all ofthe holes in it. Then reassemble tube and jet in to the venturi. Check the BOWL NUT for 2 holes. If the holes are clogged your engine will suffer from a lack of fuel. Lastly check that you have FUEL flow from the tank to the carb. If the tank outlet hole is clogged you will also have a lack of fuel problem.

Go on line to " PartsTree.com" Start your search by clicking on MTD. Go to chipper/shredders, and fine your Model number, It's listed. In the search window- type in chipper blade. Also, on the drawing schematic of the machine, the blades are # 31 in the list of parts. I looked up the 2005 model. There are are few years with the same Model #.

Oil? Gas? Additives?


Small engines like to see SAE30 oil. This is assuming a 4 stroke engine of course (if you have an oil filler spout and dip stick you have a 4 stroke engine). Use regular unleaded gas, and personally I mix STA-BIL into ALL of that gas I use with my small engines. I have too many carburetors to take the chance of needing to rebuild them in the spring.
