How my new Troy-Bilt Storm 2620 Snow Thrower Leaks Gas.

(1/2) > >>

AJ:


I purchased this Troy-Bilt Storm 2620 Snow Thrower new on Feb. 8th, 2011.


After owning it for just a few weeks the chute directional control stopped working. I was able to repair that myself by replacing a missing pin in the box below the chute control handle.


This year I filled it up with gas for the first time and put it away in my garage. A couple hours later I enter my garage and I smell gas.


I take a look at my snow thrower and it's dripping gas all over the place. I pushed it outside and the next morning after the snow storm take this video of it leaking gas.


It has a constant drip and when you push the primer bulb in gas squirts out of it.


I have called the first six warranty service centers that come up on the troy-bilt website when I do a search in my area by zip code (57252) and they all tell me that they don't do troy-bilt warranty work.


Troy-bilts own 800 number just gives me a busy signal every time I try calling it.


Anyone else ever have this problem with a Troy-Bilt snow thrower?

I got a free gas tank one year when my plastic gas tank had a leak. I see where some snowblowers have been recalled for the same probo. Is your engine the same make as a Toro?

I believe mine is different.

This is the Troy-Bilt Storm 2620 Snow Thrower that I own.


I loaded it up and took it to a local small engine guy in town here this morning. I'm guessing it something with the float being stuck or not working anymore, but I'm not a small engine guy and I don't have time to mess with it myself.
