SOURCE: I have a Toro electric start 22

It sounds like the starter drive may be jammed. It should not be engaged unless you are using the starter motor. Take the spark plug wire off, put on heavy leather gloves, and try turning the blade by hand to dislodge the starter drive. If it does dislodge, plug the spark plug wire back up and try the pull start again.

SOURCE: Starter recoil spring reload, How?

If the spring is unwound.
Recoil Spring Rewind
I invert and secure the starter housing and rewind the spring large coil to small (need eye protection and both hands). I am right handed so I tension the spring enough to insert it inside the previous coil while holding what has already been installed with my left about 180° from my right hand. The tension will hold the spring in the housing once completely rewound. Then bend slightly the inner most part to engage the starter spool. It will require about 2 turns of pretension for it to retract properly.

If the starter cord needs a pretension, this works quite well.

SOURCE: The recoil starter on my Briggs & Stratton not engaging flywheel

Andy, Hi, well I would start at the Starter myself, usually the thing called the "Bendix" spring jams up and stops it dead. Pull of the Starter, and power it up, off the unit. This will show you if it snaps in and out.
Sometimes a few judicious whacks with a soft hammer will sometimes free up the spring, if thats is indeed what's wrong. Anyway try that first. before any disassembly.
Make sure the Motor CAN actually be turned, by turning the flywheel, this should show you if the Motor is "Free" enough to move.
Also check ALL electrical connection to the starter. Use a meter and see if you are actually getting a voltage to the starter too. make sure your starter battery is good too.

I have a Toro 8526 snowblower. Pull cord drags in cold weather- I have to use electric start-once started and warmed up, pull cord works fine-is this condensation you think?


Sounds like your recoil starter is dry. when it's cold it makes it a lot worse. I would shoot a little oil into the recoil. Even try a shot of WD40 and if that works use an oil can to shoot oil into all the moving parts

My snowblower isn't starting


If it's the starter that makes a humming noise then you need to check the starter out. the gears could be stripped or even a tooth missing so it won't grab the fly wheel. Try pulling the start rope and see if that makes a difference. My Craftsman 8 horse has a recoil starter as well and I quite often use it as well. I don't always use the electric start.

Recoil starter assembly


If you can post the engine make, model and serial number I can get a diagram for you. They are usually stamped in the engine housing. Start by removing bolts to remove cover and check spring. If spring is good you should be able to rewind. You will need to cut rope by handle and pull rope up between spindle and inner housing, rewind rope in direction of pull. Let it rewind while holding tip of rope. When satisfied with tension, push end of rope back through hole in cover and reattach handle. This can be tricky. I am thinking of posting a video of this procedure. Let me know if you have more question's.Good luck.

Snowblower will not start.Recoil starter is lock and electric starter is not working.


You may have to remove the recoil starter. Be careful, the spring, etc. may have disconnected from the recoil starter housing. There are probably 3 machine screws to remove to get the starter assembly off.
Then try the electric start.
Starter assemblies are a standard repair part.
Let me know if this helps.

Pull start on my Toro snowthrower (snow master 20 - model #38020) it wont recoil itself. I removed the starter housing but can not figure out how to get the pulley and starter recoil spring out/off of the...


Its basically the same....best bet is to just buy the new pull start mechanism...they are pretty cheap, and they go bad on those units all the time.
