Clean the pilot jet on the top of the carb. It can be removed from the outside.There is a small hole in the end so small that tag wire won’t go through. Follow with a blast of carb cleaner to verify it’s clear.

The most common cause of a surging snowblower at idle is a blocked carburetor idle jet. Removing, cleaning, and refitting the idle jet commonly fixes the issue.

In summary, the Toro SnowMaster 724 QXE is our best overall choice. It`s a hybrid that behaves as a two-stage model with self-propel action and a 40-foot snow toss. Our best value for the money choice is the Toro 1800 Power Curve, an electric, lightweight option with an easy chute control.
It can be caused by various factors, fuel injection problems, bad spark plugs, a malfunctioning air sensor, might be a dirty air filter, and troubles with the engine control. Other issues of the fuel ignition system can also trigger surging when stopped.
This is caused by a rich/lean cycle at idle. As the motor leans out the RPM`s increase and richen up the motor, when the motor richens the RPM`s decrease and the motor leans out again. This continual cycle is known as “blower surge”.

A clogged carburetor is most commonly caused by leaving fuel in the snowblower for a long period of time. Over time, some of the ingredients in the fuel may evaporate, leaving behind a thicker, stickier substance. This sticky fuel can clog up the carburetor and cause the engine to stall.

I was able to start my 5HP Toro but it is running rough. It wouldn’t start at first so I drained the gas and put in fresh. After several pulls it started. I started it because we are expecting a snow storm. The way it is running I’m fear that when it has a load on it will die out. Is there something I can do to clear up the problem?
Toro 5 HP Snow Thrower – Couldn’t find on product list so I put in lawn mower.
Try taking off the fuel bowl and check for debris or ice in it.If there is hardly any fuel in it you may have a plugged or pinched fuel line,try blowing back through it[might get a littl gas in your mouth],turn off the fuel and remove the line at the carb and the tank.If niether of these pick up a new spark plug and try that.

Clean the fuel out and the carb , make sure you are getting spark close the choke to start then shut if off or it will foul the plug

My husband just bought at Toro Snow Thrower #38588. Now hw wishes it had an electric starter. Can he purchase an electric starter and add it to this model, or is he out of luck?

I just bought a new toro mower. the engine surges in speed about 1/sec. how can i get it to run smoothly?
If this is a brand new mower you could take it to the shop where you purchased it. I will say that newer units are set to run pretty lean to meet emission standards and may surge a bit when not under a load. You could take a look at the carb and see if there are any adjustment screws visible. A minor turn with a screwdriver may solve your problem, probably turn the screw out about 1/4 turn or so, just until the surging stops. Many of the new machines today do not have any owner adjustable parts. If you don’t feel comfortable trying this, please supply a model number off the mower and more info might be available.
Toro Max 1028LXE Snow Thrower will not travel. Engine runs great, and the two stages of the thrower works but will not move. It was working for about two hours but now it isn’t
Thank you for the reply. with the belt drive take a ruler and push the belt down you can use your finger as a referance point if you can push it past the half inch mark the belt needs to be tightend you can do that by adjusting the belt tensioner thats done by losening the bolt that holds it in place then moving it so there is no more then half an inch of play in the belt and retightning the bolt. and if the tensioner is at its stops then the belt needs replacement.
