Toro snowblower not throwing snow

Toro snowblower not throwing snow. If you have a Toro snowblower that is consuming excessive amounts of fuel or gas, check the bottom of the bowl gasket and the carburetor gasket. When they are missing or dry, gas leaks occur and Toro snowblower does not throw snow.

You need to replace both of these parts as soon as possible if your snowblower has been in use for some time and they have not yet been replaced.

If you see that both of them appear intact but it’s still not throwing snow then test the connections of that plastic housing that contains the filter. In case it’s cracked, new pieces will need to be installed.

Here we will discuss some common issues and solutions for the Toro snowblower not throwing snow.

Shear pin breaks

Shear pins are metal pins that slide through the shaft sleeve of an auger drive axle, holding it in place. It is designed to split under pressure to prevent damage to the engine.

Breakage renders the auger inoperable. Inspect shear pins at regular intervals, paying particular attention to the wear patterns they create as they slide through the sleeves and remove broken ones if detected. Replace any failed shear pins before using a snowblower again.

Auger Assembly worn out

First, check the safety controls to make sure they work correctly. These components can be seriously damaged or worn if there is any damage or wear.

Next, check the auger blades for damage. If any of the components are severely worn or bent you should replace them with new ones.

It’s also important that you keep protective gear nearby at all times when operating a food processor so as to avoid injury when handling broken parts and jagged edges.

The shear bolt is broken

An auger axle sleeve is locked in place by a metal cylinder called a shear bolt, which slides through the sleeve. In order to prevent damage to the engine, shear bolts are designed to break in half if the auger hits a rock or chunk of ice.

If the shear bolt breaks, this means that there might be an internal problem with your auger as it will not turn any longer. Inspect the shear bolt and determine whether it’s broken or not; if it’s broken, you will have to replace it right away.

Shear Bolt and Nut Issue

An auger axle sleeve is locked in place with the auger drive axle by a metal shear bolt that slides through the sleeve. Shear bolts are designed to snap in half if hard objects get caught on your mixer’s spinning blades which can damage your engine.

Inspect your shear bolt to verify if it has broken and replaced the bolt if so – otherwise the auger won’t be able to turn.

 Defective Auger Blade

The auger blade or blades are responsible for collecting the snow and throwing it out of the chute. Snow will not be thrown as effectively if the blades become worn.

Inspect for excessive wear by looking at each individual blade and ensuring that there is no cracking or bending in any way.

If there is excessive wear, it may be a good idea to replace a said piece of equipment rather than attempt to continue using it since it could potentially cause damage to other components within the machine which would require more expensive repairs if not dealt with as soon as possible.

 Broken Cogged Belt

Inspect the belt to see whether it is loose or if it is laying incorrectly. If the cogged belt is broken, stretched out, lying incorrectly, or damaged in any way, replace it immediately.

An Impeller Problem

If the impeller is not jammed, broken, or missing, then the snowblower might blow properly. If, on the other hand, it has something wrong with it (like a snapped-off handle), then it will likely not work.

 Replace V-Belt

Inspect the V-belt for damage. Replace it if needed. The V-belt is responsible for rotating the drive pulleys to move the mower deck.

If a V-belt is worn and needs to be replaced, it will cause problems with the wheels because they won’t be able to rotate properly as a result of a belt not rotating them.
