Toro snow blower idle surge

Toro CCR 2000 E snow blower - Idle surge problem

Last winter, unit would experience fairly significant idle surge and then die. Then it wouldn't start. Installed new carburetor today. Started right up. Ran great for about 2 minutes. Idle surge started again. Ran for a few minutes this way and again died. Wont start up again. Any one have any ideas?

Tecumseh Engine ?

If so, then this donyboy video usually solves the issue:

You could apply it to your old carburetor and put it back in.

Fuel deposits, especially with the 10% and 15% ethanol fuel cause this.

You probably have a Suzuki Engine. I had a whole series of posts and replies going last year trying to cure a governor that refused to adjust to a point where it didn't "hunt". I guess you could call it a "surge" too, but at any rate I tried everything to get it to stop "hunting" including boring out the main jet to enrich the fuel to no avail. A good cleaning of the carb allows it to run continuously but it refuses to idle smoothly. I will plow snow well under load but everybody that replied last year said I pretty much had done all anyone could do. If you find a cure, please let us know!

Don Boy has many excellent videos for DIY'ers but that vid was for a 4 cycle. The CCR2000E is a 2 cycle. Totally different engine.

I've messed with a lot of those Suzuki engines. Last time, a new carb solved the problem...for me anyway. Maybe a clogged gas cap stopping the fuel flow? Tough to troubleshoot, especially when the snow blower is "somewhere else".

A new carb wouldn't break me, Might be worth a try if it worked for you.
