I have heard that Sears Canada isn't nearly as helpful as the US version and searspartsdirect. I don't know if anyone has tried but if you don't get the help you need from Sears Canada you might try Searspartsdirect, nothing to lose.

My cheat sheet does list 944 as Husqvarna and 950 as Laser.
I have a few C950 units and they are same as murray/noma units of the same era. USA searsparstdirect will show a few c950 if you put in that much of model number in a search. At home I have a bookmark to some more C models but all are c944 I think. Mostly mowers , not blowers.

I think you're right on that one.
Plus it can often be the manner in which one asks that either gets someone to help you if they can or possibly choose not to even though they could

phil_n I pass the Sears store here a couple of times a week usually. I'll go in and see where I get. Will keep you posted.

We've got a whacking great pile of snow outside, a hundred foot drive and both Craftsman blowers are down. (We got both of them used in the last three weeks, neither running at the time sooo..... I guess buyer beware!)

The shovels are still working though .

db9938 From what I've seen, from trying to help folks here, is that trying to research Sears things online for folks up north is a more difficult, then here. They may be better in person or on the phone, but in this day and age that seems inexcusable. Those diagrams and parts lists exist, why not make them public?

Interesting, because I have heard the exact opposite!
that US Sears is useless for customer support, while Sears Canada seems to be a very different operation and is much more helpful when it comes to outdoor power equipment...and also that Sears Canada has completely different Craftsman brand snowblowers than US sears, and the Canada models are much better..(that one is probably actually true!

As for the service, the truth is probably:
Some US Sears stores are great with customer service, some are bad.
Some Canada Sears stores are great with customer service, some are bad.

db9938 I think that it is extremely unhelpful to all of our neighbors up north, that any machine is as difficult, as this is to find parts. You would think, that in a country that that is prone to snow that a manufacture would more supportive in having what we do, available. This point of support, is a very salable point to any owner, new or used. This in part, may explain why some brands maintain their value better, then others and in which country.

phil_n Thanks for trying. I've run across that too - there is definitely some sort of space between the two sets of numbers but it's near impossible to tell exactly what it is. I have discovered that the C is for Canada (sounds like Sesame Street) and the 944 is supposed to designate the company that actually made the thing and appears to refer to Husqvarna but there doesn't seem to be anything on their site about it.

Maybe the helpful folks at Sears will be able to find something.

Kiss4aFrog I tried it both ways but is the actual number on the machines C944"." instead of "-"

I'm sure it seems picky but when searching on line some search engines and parts sights don't see the "." and the "-" the same way.
