Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools

2 Answers

Mower will not stay running - will run as long as you pump primer

Toro 22" 6.75 HP recycler self propelled mower will start but die as soon as the primer fuel is consumed. If you continue to pump, it will stay running. I dismantled to carb. -- checked the float and needle. It all seems to be working properly. I blew air thru the ports and all seemed clear. Somehow it is not getting fuel. Any thoughts?

Thanks,

Bill

Hi,

Initially, pls check:

  • all the fuel hoses and the air return to the tank;
  • depending on the model, pls determine/check the fuel pump (if present);
  • again, depending on the model, pls determine/check the vacuum hose from the carb/intake manifold to the fuel gate valve (if present);
  • pls check if the tank, valves, filters are clean and free from residue;
  • some models have small screen filter that gets clogged and would normally be located between tank and valve.
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.

Check the fuel filter, the fuel pump, and the carburetor.

    If you already checked the float and needle, and cleaned the carb filter, then the carb is done.
    Just ensure that the carb setup is done properly, and that engine is not just chocking because of a bad carburator settings.


    Check that the fuel pump is working, and pumping with enough pressure, and also that fuel lines are clear and fuel filter is fine. Some model has a double fuel pump (one near to the secondary fuel tank line) in that case this will explain why the machine runs only with primary fuel.

    Check also that the fuel line from the fuel tank is not clogged, and that there is no oxide at the bottom of the fuel tank.

    Here you get schematics for a Toro GTS.

We have a toro recycler 6.5 self propelled mower,pull startno primer,and took gas line off there was a fuel filter in the line?If it is can we replace it?


yes you can replace the filter but while you are in there it is a good idea to replace the fuel line also. usually on push mowers they don't have a in line fuel filter.

Have a self-starting, self propelled toro lawn mower about 5 years old, I ran it out of gas by accident & now it won't start


It seems to be an obstruction in your fuel delivery system. Get a can of ether and a spray a short burst of it into the breather area near the carburetor, if the mower starts up and then stalls out, then you may need to get your carburetor serviced.

Carburator issue. If you have some mechanical abilty you can pull the carb off else take it to a shop. You probably left gas in it off season. Either the main jet is clogged or the float valve is stuck. Either way, remove the carb, tae off the bottom cover and clean everything out with gum out or a carb cleaner. reassemble and eveything should be fine.

I have toro 6.5 super/recycler that stalls out after about 5-10 minutes after it starts up then it will not start for about 30 mins. i've changed the spark plug and cleaned the filter


Dont know if this is the same problem but it may help. I've recently bought a used Toro 6.5 recycler and have cut the lawn 3 times with it. This third time it began to stall out on me. If I hit the primer button several times it would start up but then die again. I thought I'd have to pull the carb and clean it, ut after looking at a few problem listings online I realized it was probably just some trash in the needle valve. I managed to get it running again by first pushing the primer pump 3-5 times, then pulling the cord to crank it, then while holding the contact bar in place with one hand to keep it running I reached down and pumped the prime button a few times before it cut out again- after one or two tries it apparently flushed the trash out and it ran fine again. Had the same problem later and fixed it the exact same way, then went on to finish the yard.
