Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools

1 Answer

My Toro GTS LV195EA 362003C is starting, but not staying running. I cleaned the carb, replaced the spark plug and filter, and have tried to adjust the govenor and bowl nut on carb, but the throttle and govenor are reving up and down on their own, so the mower revs up and slows down repeatedly, when I hold the throttle open by hand runs fine, Any ideas on what I can do?

Engine surge is usually caused by one of two things...
1) a lean condition. Not getting enough fuel.
2) throttle plate shaft in carb is worn. usually clears up when engine is put under a load. You can live with it or replace the carb

SOURCE: starts runs min. or two then stops....

Go to toro.com then click customer care, then click manuals and parts. Type in model no. and download the owners manual. This should get you the spark and flywheel gap. Probably still something in the carb. Some orifices are very hard to find and to clean but they must be clean. Also check for dirt dopper nest in the muffler.

There is not a governor on newer mowers. Ease mower thru grass slowly, if starts to slow down stop, let mower speed up. In tall grass only use 1/2 of the deck width with side discharge open. Ensure spark plug is clean and gapped properly, replace once a year. Ensure air filter is clean, replace once a year. Ensure oil is full. 30w oil. Always use Stabile in gas. Use carb cleaner and clean outside of carb to ensure choke lever is free to rotate.

My lawn mower wont keep running, I have put on new spark plug, cleaned the carborator, changed the air filter. Any other ideas?


How thoroughly did you clean the carb? They need to be fully disassembled. There are some small orifices in them that need to be cleaned with either a jet cleaning tool or a piece of wire.

Toro GTS 6.0 hp idles up and down


Excess air or not enough air. Replace air filter. Spray outside of carb to clean & ensure choke movement is smooth. Water in gas may cause this also. Flush out tank, refill with fresh gas, always use Stabile.

Toro GTS 6.5 HP doesn't run well in grass. Any ideas?


Has the fuel filter been replaced lately? Also you can look to see if the new spark plugs are getting fouled out still. Sometimes just replacing the spark plugs wont fix the problem.

Have gts toro, engine starts then stops can not get it started.. r s


Your mower engine has to have these things WORKING to run: 1. Compression (engine in good shape) 2. Strong Spark (magneto air gap has to be correct for strong spark) 3. Clean air ( good, clean air filter w/no air leaks) 4. Clean, fresh fuel supply (gas less than 30 days olds with an inline filter installed in mower's fuel line). These things are assuming the mower hasn't struck an immovable object such as concrete, tree stump etc. recently. This will shear the flywheel key and timing may be off so far that engine won't start. So, where would you like to start my friend? Try checking these things. In the meanwhile....we can try to "coax" the engine into running. Remove the spark plug. Get an aerosol can of carb/choke cleaner spray. Spray a couple of shots into the engine. Reinstall plug. Choke the carb and attempt to start. This may or may not work, according to the conditions listed earlier. If this doesn't get it running, remove the plug and try it again.
We are trying to get it to run on its own, so it will start (or attempt to start) drawing fuel from the carburetor. Sometimes the brass bolt that holds the carburetor float bowl on gets clogged. You drain the gas, remove the bolt and clean all the small hole in the bottom and along the sides of it. This bolt is also the main jet of the carb. Cleaning this with carb cleaner can only help. If you do this, use NO metal objects to poke or scrape the bolt. The holes are metered and have to stay that way. Check for spark, check your air filter, see if the plug gets wet after you attempt to start. If it doesn't get wet or even smell like gas, then likely you have a fuel flow problem. Try ALL these things and post back; and again, if you have hit something solid recently with the mower, you will have the replace the flywheel shear key. It is a small aluminum $1.00 part so don't worry. Post back as needed. We wish to help.

Toro recycler will start until primed gas is consumed.


I had similar problem and cleaned the spark plug and that seemed to have worked, but I think that may be a temporary fix because the engine still seems to be running unevenly. I feel that it must be a larger problem with the carb. If anyone can help this novice to adjust the carb or clean both carb and filter, or offer other solutions I would appreciate your assistance.

You have a problem in the fuel system. First start by checking fuel lines,filter,vacum fuel pump.If this checks out,remove carb. and clean. Check for water and trash in bowl of carb. or tank. This sould solve your problem.
