    my toro 22" mower shuts off when it moves. I have a new plug and gas. It runs fine just sitting there but when I push it it cuts off. I checked the cable connection and everything appears in order. I started it and lifted up the rear drive wheels, the wheels moved fine and it did not cut out, but if I shake it it cuts out. It sounds like it's not getting gas or something. should I take off the top and check the fuel lines?

    The mower cuts off at the slightest movement even when it moves even at a very slow pace. the blade area is free of grass.

    i still haven't fixed the problem with the mower. I finally got the top shield off and checked all of the fuel lines. None of the lines were clogged. I then drained the gas tank to see it there was anything blocking the flow of gas. The tank was clean and the screen was clean. It runs when I start it but the sceond I shake it or move it, it cuts off. I am determined to fix it myself because I cant afford to have it fixed

Hi,

Perhaps we can try process of elimination:

  • if it were a fuel delivery issue, engine would cough, sputter before eventually die;
  • if it were the sparkplug, it would not even start at all;
  • that would then leave us with the ignition/electrical.
Based on the assumption of an ignition/electrical issue, pls check:
  • high tension/sparkplug wire;
  • ignition coil and its connectors;
  • kill engine switch;
  • frayed wires, loose connectors, loose grounding.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    I would still suspect an electrical issue.

Yes check the gas line, follow it from the gas tank and make sure nothing is clogged. When running does it sound like it is about to die or is it running strong?

mower will stop running when it moves - reel-mower-5.gif Since the gears in a manual reel mower make the blades turn faster than the wheels, you don't have to run to keep the blade speed up. Still, the person pushing a manual reel mower supplies all the power, and a steady, reasonable pace is required to keep the reel spinning. Other than that, mowing the lawn with a reel mower is much like using a gas-powered push mower. Knowing what kind of grass you have and what mowing height and care that grass requires will help you to mow your lawn properly.

Taking care of reel mowers is easy. If properly cared for, reel mowers can last for decades. There are no oil changes or tune-ups required. The only steadfast rules for maintaining a reel mower are:

  • Clean the blades.
  • Wash off excess grass clippings.
  • Keep the mower out of the rain to prevent rusting.

    hi

    The teeth on helical gears are cut at an angle to the face of the gear. When two teeth on a helical gear system engage, the contact starts at one end of the tooth and gradually spreads as the gears rotate, until the two teeth are in full engagement.





    Photo courtesy http://www.emerson-ept.com" target="_blank" rel="nofollow" >Emerson Power Transmission Corp. 
    Figure 3. Helical gearsThis gradual engagement makes helical gears operate much more smoothly and quietly than spur gears. For this reason, helical gears are used in almost all car transmissions.
    Because of the angle of the teeth on helical gears, they create a thrust load on the gear when they mesh. Devices that use helical gears have bearings that can support this thrust load.
    One interesting thing about helical gears is that if the angles of the gear teeth are correct, they can be mounted on perpendicular shafts, adjusting the rotation angle by 90 degrees.

Check the connection of the wire to the switch, could be a cut wire or loose wiring on the unit.

I have a Ariens snowblower deluxe 30 which is a year old. Starts fine and will run. Unfortunatley it is running way to low. I have replace the gas with fresh gas ran it through completely


It is very possible the carbureator needs a cleaning. Moisture can corrode the inner parts of them if left all summer. I find that the fuel usually does not go bad over the summer. I always start my snowblower once a month over the summer and then have no problems when the snow flies again. There was a time when mine was losing power and quitting also. There is a screw on the bottom of my carbureator that needed adjusting. If you are lucky that may be all you need. By turning mine in and out a bit I found the spot where the gas was correct and it worked fine again.

Hi we have a Massey Ferguson Dyna 4 5465 and it was working this morning and then it died we started it up and it ran for about 1/2 a minute when we try starting it now we can hear the fuel pump runs for...


am i to assume its a diesel ,if so sounds like its out of fuel but i could be wrong as its been many years since i have worked on tractors and all the fancy electronic gizmo on modern vehicles can confuse me.Now firstly check the key as no doubt as its a modern one it has a immobilisor and if the head of key loses its chip inside the key head it will never start unlike the old ones that would run on paraffin diesel or petrol ,the later ones were diesel only but again providing they had fuel and oil with the rad topped up they ran 24/7 ,thats a point check the oil level if its low it may stop the engine from starting

My Pentair pool pump runs continuously even though it is set to auto on outside & inside panels.


If your pump is running constantly either the timer is set to "manual on" or the timer has failed. Check the settings on your timer. Usually on a mecanical timer the manual on lever is just under the 24 hour dial. On the electronic timers it is controlled by a relay that if it fails defaults to always run.
