Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
It doesn't appear that the model number you had posted in your prior information is a good model number. I have searched for this model and can't find anything on it. Regardless, most of the older Troybilt units did have a belt that run the fan or impeller and chances are that is going to be your problem. The belt is old and or stretched out and is slipping which is causing the fan to not spin as fast as it should. I would replace it and give the machine a try and see what happens. The only other thing that have seen on these units that cause a loss of suction is if the fan becomes damaged which you have indicated that yours looks good so I don't believe that it would be a problem. If you need additional assistance feel free to ask. If you can get a good model and serial number from the machine it would be helpful.
Thank you it has been a pleasure to assist you.
