There may be a shorted winding in the motor. Bypassing the breaker may smoke the whole thing. Look in your phone book or online to find a Toro repair facility. They'll have any parts you need

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

If you take it apart there is a little spring on the bottom of the motor. When overheated it "trips" and looses contact with a wire. Need to reset the spring.

The high speed mixture screw is initially set at 1 & 1/2 turns out. Then adjust it to give good acceleration and top speed, while not closing the screw more than you need to. The low speed mixture screw is set at 3/4 of a turn out. Adjust that, to give a smooth idle. The 3rd screw, the idle speed screw, is set to give a low idle speed without stalling.

You have problem with the coil ignition.

4 stroke engines that do this, sometimes have a problem with the fuel tank venting. If the tank isn't venting correctly, a vacuum will result, and fuel will cease to flow to the carburetor. Make the the fuel cap isn't getting smothered and is able to "breathe." Check the holes in it and make sure it is clean. If snow covers it while operating, occasionally wipe it off. Many people have had this problem in the South in warm weather with their lawnmowers and as puzzling a problem as it is, sometimes this is the simple solution. Clean that fuel tank cap and keep it that way.

Can you hear the motor run when you try to start it when it's cold? If so then it could be in the drive mechanism. I had one that I thought had a bad bendix in the starter. Here it has a rubber disc that turns the starter sprocket. I removed the retainer, took off the sprocket. Cleaned everything and re-assembled, and low and behold it worked. A new starter was over $100.00. Now if yours doesn't even turn when its cold, I'd look into the starter push button, or key switch for bad connection.
