Question about Toro Blowers Rake and Vac - Electric Blower/Vac - 51573

1 Answer

ELECTRIC blower will not start.

Toro electric blower/vac Model 51591 will not turn on. There appears to be a circuit breaker that will not stay depressed. The circuit breaker has two blue and two red wires. When the breaker is depressed and held, each blue wire connects to one red wire. 1) Is the breaker broken? Where can I purchase a replacement? Can I bypass the breaker - I'll plug into a GFI?

    Still will not turn on. However, the apparent circuit breaker behaves like a safety interlock switch, so that is probably not the problem. The speed switch diode is 40K in one direction and open in the other - probably OK. What else could it be?

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

Toro model 51575. Was using it as a vacuum and it just shut off. Checked breakers ...all ok. Plugged it in direct to outlet and still nothing. What might be the problem?


If you're Toro electric blower is slowing down, throwing sparks, or not starting you may need to replace the carbon brushes. Replacing brushes and cleaning commutator early can prevent damage to motor armature!

There are Electric Motor replacement carbon brushes on E-bay for all three motor sizes (7 AMP, 10.5 AMP, and 12 AMP) of Toro Leaf Blowers (Toro Rake and Vac Super and Ultra Blower Vacuums)
Search E-bay for: "Toro Blower Carbon Brush"

- 12 Amp leaf blowers Toro Super (Old model 51552) through Toro Ultra (New model 51609).
- 10.5 Amp leaf blowers Toro Old through Toro New model 51573.
- 7 Amp leaf blowers Toro model 51586 and other Toro 7 amp blowers

Toro Blower..No power. Like a blown fuse. Does it have a fuse?


I have the Toro 51591 model. Yesterday, mine did the same as yours. I opened up the case and found that a small cylinder had broken off of the switch. So it could be that your switch is the problem. I have been unable so far to find a replacement anywhere.
You should consider using your warranty.

Toro leaf blower Model 51591 from 2003 has started


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.

Toro blower model 51591 electrical prong melted. help!


The answer is wrong. This model and other Toro blowers with the plug built into the body (as opposed to the new design with plug on cord) has this problem when the plug does not completely mate with the cord. This happened to mine too. Unfortunately Toro does not provide a replacement part. HOwever, perhaps the new designed cord will fit as a replacement, but I am unsure of this. When my plug melts completely I will try that.
