The Carburetor is flooding. The only thing that
will cause a flood problem is the float needle is not seating properly in the
needle seat. The Carburetor will need to be removed to replace the Needle and Float
assembly. After instillation the float level will need to be checked, and
adjusted if required. This is a little tricky, and would be quite lengthy to explain
hear. Short version is, the needle is a two part piece, having a spring loaded
piston located in the needle, the neoprene needle tip will need to be seated in
the seat, the spring loaded piston in the needle will need to remain uncompressed, in other words not pushed
into the needle what so ever. With the float tang just touching the top of the
uncompressed needle piston. To do this hold the carburetor housing in a
position to accomplish the the above configuration. Measure from the carburetor
housing gasket surface to the highest point of the float drum. The measurement specifications
are (14.5 to 18.5 mm) or (0.57" to 0.72" in). Make sure the float pin rotates

You should have the injectors cleaned, As fuel gets old, the most burnable part of it evaporates This leaves a very liquid gunk behind, the gunk contains some very big bits of rubbish, (compared to clean fuel or injectors) it sounds as though you have blocked injectors. If you give them a good clean and fill the tank with new fuel you should fix the problem.

19e412-0134-01 won't start. gas leaks out air


The float is stuck on the carb flooding the engine and leaking gas out of air filter. Remove the float bowl after the gas is turned of or drained. Thoroughly clean carb And bowl with carb cleaner. Reove the float {very carefully} if it is copper, shake it. If you here fuel in it then it is no good. If not then clean everything and reassemble. If it needs to be replaced, most small engine repair shops will have your parts.

Hi, Dan and the usual suspects are:

The last time we used the machine worked fine. Now when we try to use the machine, it won't start. It will turn over a little, but that's it. We have tried on several occasions to get it started...


Make sure the fuel is fresh (not older than 30 days). Never use old fuel unless it has an additive such as "Stabil" in it. Remove and clean or replace the spark plug. Make sure it is getting spark. With the plug out, shoot a couple good shots of carb/choke aerosol cleaner into the engine. Reinstall plug immediately. Choke it and try to start it. If you can get it running that way, the normal fuel flow through the carburetor may resume. Any other number of things could be wrong, but the machine has to have 1. Compression 2. Clean Fresh Fuel 3. Clean Air 4. Strong Spark (blue color). Mostly, the problem with these is a fuel supply problem, which consists of the fuel filter, fuel lines, internal parts of the carburetor and condition of ALL sealing gaskets on the engine. Any air leak will result in a no start condition. There is no majic fix. The ethanol in the gas now wrecks havoc on these little machines. Check all the above. Try the carb cleaner and post back with results.

Have gts toro, engine starts then stops can not get it started.. r s


Your mower engine has to have these things WORKING to run: 1. Compression (engine in good shape) 2. Strong Spark (magneto air gap has to be correct for strong spark) 3. Clean air ( good, clean air filter w/no air leaks) 4. Clean, fresh fuel supply (gas less than 30 days olds with an inline filter installed in mower's fuel line). These things are assuming the mower hasn't struck an immovable object such as concrete, tree stump etc. recently. This will shear the flywheel key and timing may be off so far that engine won't start. So, where would you like to start my friend? Try checking these things. In the meanwhile....we can try to "coax" the engine into running. Remove the spark plug. Get an aerosol can of carb/choke cleaner spray. Spray a couple of shots into the engine. Reinstall plug. Choke the carb and attempt to start. This may or may not work, according to the conditions listed earlier. If this doesn't get it running, remove the plug and try it again.
We are trying to get it to run on its own, so it will start (or attempt to start) drawing fuel from the carburetor. Sometimes the brass bolt that holds the carburetor float bowl on gets clogged. You drain the gas, remove the bolt and clean all the small hole in the bottom and along the sides of it. This bolt is also the main jet of the carb. Cleaning this with carb cleaner can only help. If you do this, use NO metal objects to poke or scrape the bolt. The holes are metered and have to stay that way. Check for spark, check your air filter, see if the plug gets wet after you attempt to start. If it doesn't get wet or even smell like gas, then likely you have a fuel flow problem. Try ALL these things and post back; and again, if you have hit something solid recently with the mower, you will have the replace the flywheel shear key. It is a small aluminum $1.00 part so don't worry. Post back as needed. We wish to help.

When coming to stop car dies out. It's automatic and already cleaned mass airflow - could it be posible i need a bigger battery?


No, As long as you're vehicle starts and runs fine with some options being ran off of the battery, you're battery is not the issue, It sounds like a vaccum leak or a fuel delivery issue. Run Some Premium gas in it with fuel system treatment "Cleaner" and see if in a couple of days it gets better. If not you most likely have a vaccum leak, listen for a hissing noise under the hood of you're vehicle while it is running, if you hear a hissing noise than liik for little black hoses that will have a hole, tear or that have just come apart from where they are suppost to be.

Toro GTS 20332 (bought it 12 months ago) won't run


I believe that Toro Guarantees to start 1 Pull, was gas left in it all winter?, If so this is'nt covered under warranty, cause gas is to be ran out or dumped out at end of season this will prevent any gumming up of carb . did you completely disassemble carb? does it have a primer on it, those gskts need replacing, clean out the jet in bottum of float bowl,small holes,sometimes missed and remove and check your needle/seat to make sure that when float drops gas runs out then lift float up and gas should stop. hope this helped you,another thing spray carb cleaner in carb and pull over and see if it will start that way enough to keep running with choke to see if it will **** gas into it

If your unit needed to be "recharged", it has a leak. Have a sevice company look for and repair the leak before charging it again.
