SOURCE: SELF PROPELL NOT WORKING GOOD

Have you checked the belt that drives the wheel? This is more than likely the problem. It may be broken.

SOURCE: Toro self propelled mower rear wheel keeps falling off

Are these regular bolt on wheels? Have you changed the nut?

I would expectc to find a "Stover" nut on such an appllication. Stover nuts are similar to "NY-Lock" but without the nylon lock. Rather, Stover (and you have to ask for them at the hardware or auto parts place), are not round and/or have had a certain side portion punched to make the nut hard to put on. Some well meaning back yard mechanics (read me) have 'fixed' the Stover by running a tap through them maning them easier to get onto the threads ... but alas, it didnt stay. That was how I learned about Stover.

Let me know if this helps.

SOURCE: 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

Toro self propelled rear mower recycler.. starts and runs fine..Then stops if you do not keep the propulsion in gear


I would say that something inside the mechanism that engages the self-propelled action has broken. When you release the lever, (most of the way), that keeps the S.P. action moving, it's suppose to flip the action off but keep the motor running. And when you release this same lever all the way, it acts as a kill switch. If your wheels never disengage, then I would look at the mechanism spoke of above.

If you hear this mechanism click when you release this lever, this is good and it's not broken. Then you may have grass and junk clogged up under the cover where the front wheel is. This would also keep it from disengaging.

Good Luck!

My toro 20016 self propel is only turning the right wheel


Remove the left wheel and check the gears inside the wheel and the drive sheft. They might be worn or sheared and need renewing or maybe they just need oiling. Spray them with WD 40.

6.5 toro walk behind self propell b&s engine. self propel does not work


Try adjusting your self propel cable. A slight extension of the cable (1/4 inch) will double speed, so do a little at a time. Take the back guard off and clean debris 2 or 3 screws and it is just a cover so nothing will pop out unless that is your real problem. You should have grease fittings behind rear wheels so squirt 2 times with grease gun in each wheel and 1 squirt every 3rd mow.
