SOURCE: My Troybilt Snow Blower wheels have locked up

Just found the same problem with mine.  The bearing on the gear shaft is frozen.  To replace these, follow the instructions in the manual to replace the friction wheel, then tap out the bearings in the side of the case, you'll probably find one frozen up.  As long as you're there, might as well put in a new friction wheel.  Mine is looking pretty worn after fighting the bearings all winter.

Electric start does not work. how do i trouble shoot it?


Mine the electric cord had pulled out of the receptacle.on the blower so it was not working. I pulled it right out and reinstalled it It's ok now.
Do you have power coming to the blower or have you blown a GFI and it needs to be reset. Does the starter click or try to work? These are things that I have to know before we tear things apart.
If it buzzes it could need a gear replacement. on the starter itself.

Wheels are locked up on troybilt snow blower


Sounds like your drive could be seized up or something jammed in the belt area. There are areas that need lubricating also and we don't think about it.

Leaks are normally from bad seals or ones put on engine wrong. Many snow blowers leak oil, very common. Electric start needs to be taken apart. Rust is problem most likely. When you engage the starter it kicks out the gear to turn over engine. Carefully remove the starter from engine, try to start starter an if the pinion gear does not kick out from starter disassembly it an try to clean rust away from action. Dont break wires around electric motor careful about getting dirt an rust in winding. Try to lube spring an moving parts around gear. One other thing it could be a sheared off gear on starter also.

To know for sure you need to test the battery and the solenoid but first reach under the motor and turn the shaft and make sure the motor turns.You can do both at the solenoid First check to see how many volts are coming in to the solenoid then engage the start switch and check to see how many are coming out. then go to the starter and check the cable by testing the voltage at the lug going into the starter. Make sure your starter bolts are tight. If they are not remove the starter and clean where the starter contacts the motor if necessary. If all this checks out and you receive a little more than 12 volts. then it is probably going to be your bendix drive. This is usually a system of two interlacing gears where one travels up other elevating the the starter interlock gear to the fly wheel. First is it traveling up to the fly wheel gear engaging but the shaft is spinning inside the gear. Or is it not traveling at all. either way it's got to go.O7OUT

I have a craftsman snowblower that I believe is about a 1998-99 model. I need to know what type of oil it uses... If it does at all.


I can answer this for you if I have the model number of the snow blower. But, if the snow blower uses a 2 cycle motor it will use an oil/gas mix and no oil in the crankcase. If it is a 4 cycle motor it uses oil in the crankcase and none in the gas.
The easiest way to find what type of oil it uses is to look in the operators manual. To get the free manual go to managemylife.com and input your model number in the manuals tab.
Your model number is located on the machine and looks like 247.123456.
