No fuel, frozen fuel or fuel lines, broken ignition, bad ignition, no oil on the engine and it seized, broken shaft, etc. I mean the list is all of the parts that make the snow blower, two words, work.

Remove the spark plug and snap the small end back in the ignition wire. GROUND THE THREADS of the spark plug on the engine. Lift the throttle lever to half speed. You hold the ignition wire so the threads are grounded while someone else pulls the engine recoil handle Of you don't see a bright blue spark and hear it snap, you need a new *electronic ignition coil. It's under the flywheel housing where the ignition wire plugs into. Hopefully a Toro dealer will have one. There is a trick to install a new one. You must find a .011 - .012 feeler gauge to lay between the magnet in the flywheel and the two steel legs of the coil. The magnet will snap the coil down on the feeler gauge then tighten the small bolts to hold the coil in place. All you have to do now is rotate the flywheel by hand and the feeler gauge will drop out. If you do have spark more than likely you've got water in your fuel tank and what ever you store it in at home. Dump a half a can of Isopropyl alcohol (dry gas) in the snow-blower tank If you see any SMALL round droplets in the float bowl after you turn the gas back on you have water in the gas!
