Toro snowblower chute wonít turn or rotate

My toro snow thrower plastic chute is no longer turning or rotating when I spin the handl which turns spiral arm. Any help would be greatly appreciated to keep this 10 year old beauty running.

Quikchute? Is neither the joystick or chute Moving?

Possibly the locking paw under the cover attached to the chute. I’ve seen the cable require an adjustment, preventing the paw from disengaging when pressing the release on the joystick.

Mike, welcome to SBF. Is the handle stuck and will not turn OR will the handle turn and not move the chute?

If the handle will not turn, remove the chute, clean and lubricate the base with a lithium grease.

If the handle will turn, you may have a mis-alignment between the gears OR a stripped gear.

Posting your Toro model number would help US see what set up you have.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.
