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.

I don;t know what engine is on your mower but if it has the self contained electronic ignition coil I have seen happen on several engines. It would run good for several min. then the spark just stops . And it will not spark again until it sets and cools . Just make sure it is the ignition that is not working.

White smoke and blade won't engage


Sounds like a low compression problem. The piston rings have most likely failed and oil is seeping past them and burning, thus the white smoke. An engine needs three things to run...Spark, Compression, and Fuel. Just take the mower back as it is still probably under warranty. Mike. Rate 100% please.

Toro Personal Pace self propel problem.


Your self-propel is probably belt driven. Belts can make an awfully lot of noise when unhappy. Possible it has rolled over and is running on the wrong side of the belt or is worn and just needs replaced. Hope this helps.,
