I had one like this. The problem is probably something wrapped around the blower. You may have injested anything from string to a piece of plastic.

Remove the two screws holding the control panel to the machine. The spark plug is behind the panel.

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!

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

The Mamco motor is WAY too much money.I bought brushes on E Bay and made them fit. #51591 takes 1/4 " square brushes.

the problem could be the snow is to heavy for the motor to keep up, if thats the case you may need to upgrade to a more powerful model or try not to overload it. take it a little slower so the motor can keep up. but try tightening the belt. with your pointer finger push down on the belt it should have about a half inch give, if it moves more than that its too loose and probably slipping under load

Or, you can try the easy approach. Take a 1/4" bolt about 2" long and cutoff the head. Force the bolt into the old fuel line on the fuel tank side (after removing fuel tank), push other end into new fuel line, tape the lines together well with electrical tape. Gently pull from one side and push from the other until new section of line comes through. Just did this and it too all of 5 minutes.

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.

I had a broken brush for an electic weed eater. I could not replace just the brush. I would have been required to purchase the whole electric motor. I chose to get rid of it, it just was not worth it. I suppose you may try to find a parts one, good luck. Or maybe see if you can get access to a carbon brush kit like the ones used for industrial maintenance. That may be your best shot, depending on who you know. Otherwise you will probably have to replace it. Sorry.

If really helpful, please rate.

Some of these have a reset button in a tiny hole in the bottom rear of the unit. Try pressing the reset with a hair pin or a paper clip. then try turning it on again. Hope it works for you.

You probably bought a new one by now.Nov. 2011.
If the broken chunk was sucked into the motor? Yeah.

Sounds like a piece of wood is caught under/between the impellor and the case/housing. When removing the impellor, you may find it has a left hand threaded nut.
