Tune up and carb adjustment. There are two screws on your carb which control the low end(idle) and the high end (throwing power) Play with those with very small turns to adjust.

Troy Bilt 3090 snowblower surges off choke, doesnt surge on choke, cleaned the carb, jets, float, drained tank, cleaned fuel filter, fresh gas, still surges. Could it be the governor or idle jet?l


you could try opening up the idle/mixture screw another turn to make the transmission from idle to throttle better
governors just open the throttle butterfly according to the spring tension setting from the throttle lever

Snow blower runs well then dies to a rough idle


Sounds like it has dirt or water in the carb and is slowing down the fuel flow and starving the engine of fuel.

My Troy bilt squall 2100 snowblower does not idle steady. It races and slows while idling.


It sounds like the carb needs cleaning and readjusting, or the fuel filter is clogged. Good-Day! Remove and clean out carb, it may be dirty inside.

Snowblower c950 52361 throttle will not change out of idle


Sounds like snow blower has been sitting since last season. Remove carburetor shield and move throttle linkage at top of carburetor. They some times seize or tighten up from sitting.Spray with WD-40 or something to lubricate.

Runs for 10 minutes and stops


When running is the idle smooth or up and down?
Is the chock operating, or adjusted after the motor gets warm?
Is the carburetor needle adjusted after the engine idles to warm as it should be to be set correctly.
Are you blowing snow when it dies or at idle?

I have a CCR 3650 Snow Blower ,The engine is racing at idle. How do I adjust?


Try the spring on the governor. sounds like it's not hooked up, or extremely week. I rebuild and sell these all winter. I've had it happen a few times. Runs really good! but, will ruin the motor running over speed like that. There are adjustments- some have the spring on a long flange of metal so it can be bent backwards to add tension- it doesn't take much! If the motor starts to rev up and down and up and down, add a hair more tension. It there is too much tension it will stall out when you hit heavy snow.

Carburator settings


If you have played with them the only way is to get it going pretty well is" ....
find the idle screw - usually larger - and turn in 1/2 a turn - hopefully that will keep it running - then find the 'slow' running screw turn it in until it stops then turn out 1 and 1/2 turns. Leave the fast one alone.
Get it started then adjust idle screw so its faaster if need be.,, now slowly turn the 'slow' screw in then out say 1/2 turn and listen for it either speeding up or slowing down leave it at the point where it sounds ok and try giveing a few 1/2 speed rev ups. If it goes back and idles as before - leave it.

The fast screw... (first make sure your exhaust outlet is totally unblocked - the slightest restriction here will cause it to never run right at high speed). Start it up and then try full throttle - same thing as before try adjust the fast screw first in a little then out until it runs well at what seems the faster speed it can - then check that it accelerates well from idle to full speed. If not adjust it a little more until it does.
Once it will idle ok and return to idle and also run full speed, then you can back off the idle screw until it will idle without the chain racing arond the bar.

Bear in mind th chain wil be racing around while you adjust it so keep fingers kids and idiots well away..because you are adjusting it with that chain moving..

Have a toro power stage max model 826LE electric start, runs irre


Sounds like carb. may need adjusting. Take the heat box off to expose carb., there should be 2 adjustment screws- 1 on the bottom of the bowl and 1 on the side of the carb just above the edge of the bowl ( depending how the carb sets off the engine - if the carb comes straight out it will be on the side facing towards the front of the snow blower or if it goes towards the handles then standing other side of the snow blower the screw will be facing you), turn both screws in til they just bottom out the turn them out 1 1/4 turns out then start the machine. While the machine is running at low idle turn the screw on the side of the carb. in (clockwise) a little at a time listening for the engine to start to rev up and then start to rev down, bog or studder then turn back slightly to bring idle back up. Once the idle is up then the screw on the very top of the carb. turn that out to lower idle to a normal idle. Repeat those adjustments till you cant get the idle to go up anymore. Now for the screw on the bottom of the bowl- move the throttle up to max and turn the screw in till you hear it rev up higher and starts to bog or sputter then turn it back slightly to bring the high rev to a smooth rev. That should take care of it. If it does not solve it then the carb may need cleaning then the adjustments done again. If you need more help on this please feel free to ask. Sometimes you have to do process of elimination and you start with the easiest first. Also the adjustments should help with the carbon build up on the plug.
