Hi, check that your carberter has not got the pipe from it to the engine either cut or loose as it seems that your engine is getting to much air.
May just be the hose clip around the intake tube a little loose.
If this is not the problem check with the seller whom you bought it off as the carb may need reset.

Starts but wont keep running


The fuel bowl has a float and needle, the bowl is filled with gas and over time the float gets filled with gas or just don't float as it should within the bowl. the needle is pulled up by the float which lets fuel flow into the carb. A repair kit can be bought for $5 and is easily replaced. After you take this apart, it's a good idea to clean the carb with a carb cleaner. You'll have to take off quiet a bit which looks difficult but it's really not.

Stuck pull cord on Toro 6.5 self-propelled mower


1) Common problem when a mower sits for several weeks at a time between mowing;
check for extra grass debris to be glogged between the blade and the mower shell.

2) If the mower has a 'bail' or 'zone' control handle;
this releases a brake mechanism on the flywheel to allow it to rotate, and after it is running, releasing the lever will 'kill' the engine.

NOTE* when transporting a push mower in the trunk of a car, try to keep the mower as level as possible.

*extra note when mower has been transported in the back of a car;
sometimes the mower is placed in a trunk at such a severe angle that the oil from the crankcase is forced around the rings and sits on top of the piston so that when you try to pull the rope you have a 'hydra' lock. (that is when a liquid is between the piston and the spark plug) You cannot compress a liquid, so the rope appears stuck.

If this happens, remove the spark plug (make sure the loose plug wire is fastened away from any combustable that comes out of the spark plug hole *** AND THERE WILL BE A HUGE STREAM OF OIL AND GASOLINE, SO BE PREPARED TO CLEAN UP A MESS ***
pull as normal until fluid is dispelled from internal engine
clean or replace the spark plug
a few more pulls (no choke required) and you are up and going

Lawnmower fires and immediately dies out


If you are starting it on choke setting, try adjusting it, or starting without choke in hot weather.

Please remove air filter each season, wash, and impregnate with a little oil when dry before replacing.

If you still have problems after this, drain the fuel tank, and refill with fresh fuel. Check condition of tank at this point for rust or sludge.
If there are any deposits visible in there, take the tank off, clean it out, and replace fuel filter.

Self-Propelled Model Starts, then dies after about 15 seconds


I posted same problem as this couple days ago. Took mower to shop. The governor spring (located just under the air filter) had come off. So glad it was something so minor!

Sounds like a common fuel problem you need to remove carb & fuel tank and unless you can get a compressor they need a good blast out you may even take carb apart & check diaghram they have very small jets in fact most lawnmower shops have a sonic bath for this
