My Toro 221QE stopped running the last time I used it and will not restart. It was working properly, I was just finishing up my driveway and it sputtered and stopped as if out of fuel. There was enough fuel in it to be able to see it when you opened the filler cap. Now, it refuses to start either electricly or manually and I just noticed a small amount of fuel spurting from the choke control when I tried to start it with the electric start.
Model: Power Clear 221QE
Followed starting instructiona for both electric and manual start. 2x's on the primer, ignition to on, hold starter button for 2-3 seconds. Blower has been stored indoors and is clean and clear. Just got the unit this winter and this is only the third time trying to use it.
replace the spakplug and we can work from there. Before installing the new plug, turn the engine over a few times without the sparkplug in it and choke off. Doing that will clear the engine engine.

The unit was purchased brand-new in December and this would be the second time I've had a problem with it and have only actually used it 3 times. I think before I replace anything, I will contact the dealer (who was closed today) and see what help I can get from them. I dont feel new parts should be warranted at this stage of the game and if anything is malfunctioning with the unit, it should be up to the dealer to make good on it.
Thank you for your suggestion.
I do undertsnad your last comment and I do recommend getting with the dealer and see what they may offer you.
