Question about Toro Blowers Rake and Vac - Electric Blower/Vac - 51573

Open Question

Toro Rake and Vac blower/vacuum 51573 and 51591 will not turn on.

Took apart and directly checked motor - works fine. Continuity checks on other wires are good. Diode does not show continuity thru it with or w/o switch on? If I check it with amp meter what should the reading be? Should this be done with the unit plugged in? Is it better to just replace the entire switch element or just the diode if it is bad? Thanks for your help.

I was able to find PDFs of manuals from the manufacturer directly at this site: https://homeownersolutions.toro.com
Just run a search based on your model. In this case, simply type in 51573 in their search box. You get access to an online interactive manual and also makes PDF available.

SOURCE: Snow blower spark plug replacement

I would check it at the start of every season and clean it. If you note that it seems to be running rich and might have fouled the plug, you can always pull it and check it again. Probably not a bad idea to check it before you put it away for the season. As for replacement, it depends on condition. I would think that you should get two or three season's use out of it before needing to replace it, at least.

SOURCE: Toro Super Blower Vac will turn come on. Is there a reset button?

Yes there is. Unplug the unit, pull the plastic adapter that converts it between vac and blower off and you'll see the little square reset button. It is recessed into the case. Push it in until it clicks, replace the adapter and plug it in and go. Good luck!

Toro model 51575. Was using it as a vacuum and it just shut off. Checked breakers ...all ok. Plugged it in direct to outlet and still nothing. What might be the problem?


If you're Toro electric blower is slowing down, throwing sparks, or not starting you may need to replace the carbon brushes. Replacing brushes and cleaning commutator early can prevent damage to motor armature!

I have an Oreck Xl upright vacuum. when i plug it in the light on the switch is on but the vacuum wont start. i took it apart to check the wiring and seems fine. is this a switch or motor or? problem. ...


I assume that you have a two speed switch and neither speed works. If you have access to a multi-meter I would check continuity through your cord going to the motor and the switch and also the motor itself. Anything where you do not have continuity going across should end up being your problem. Your wires from the cord will attach on the motor were there are black dots next to the wire tabs. You could try touching the wires together that go to the switch and see if the motor runs if you do not have a meter and if it does then you do have a switch problem. If you can check those things let me know how it comes out and if that does not take care of it I will try to figure out what else might be the problem.

While dismantling you have to be careful in handling the display chip. In all probability the supply wire to the display has cracked. There will be two supply wires to the display. Check its continuity. If there is no resistance or continuity, you will have to change the display

When testing a diode you need to lift one end of the component to prevent a second path of continuity. If you lift one end, and you have continuity in both directions when reversing the polarity, it would be shorted or defective. Does your Fluke have a Diode or Semiconductor setting? This will show you the voltage drop for the N/P junction which will be a better test than using the Ohm setting. If the diodes check good, test the motor windings, switch and heating element.

My toro model 51599 ultra with metal impeller began to overheat and shut it self off... is there a reset switch...this happened after moderate use tnx


If you take it apart there is a little spring on the bottom of the motor. When overheated it "trips" and looses contact with a wire. Need to reset the spring.

Problem is my hardly used Toro Blower Vac is getting no Power


If it has not run for awhile, check the brushes. they might need to be replaced. The plug is usually moulded right on power cord. That might have to be replaced because if there is a problem with a broken or disconnected wire right at plug there is no way to see it. Hope this helps.

Plugged it in and it won't run but it was running fine when I put it away two weeks ago.


Check the plug for loose wire or at blower where wire it enters to make sure the wire was not pulled and disconnected inside. If after looking and it is not a wire, check the brushes on the motor. They could be worn out or not making a good contact. Blow out brush housing and re-install brush sometimes this works. That's about all I can think of unless there is a safety switch then check that. Good luck.

Toro replacements are hard to find because Toro does not sell them and it is tricky to make you own.
