Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools
I HAVE A 2 1/2 YEAR OLD TORO WHICH THE MOTOR FROZE UP ( BRIGGS AND STRATTON) SINGLE STAGE. THEY TOLD ME THAT I DID NOT FOLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS AS TO HOW MUCH OILD TO GAS RATIO IS TO BE USED. i DID FOLLLOW THE INSTRUCTIONS AND HAVE NO WAY OF PROVING IT. HAVE ANY OF YOU HAD THE SAME EXPERIENCE?
You may have had no Fuel in the tank, But there may have been residual fuel left in the carburetor. It will need to be cleaned out.
Hope you get it done before the first snow fall.

thank you for the reply. with the belt drive take a ruler and push the belt down you can use your finger as a referance point if you can push it past the half inch mark the belt needs to be tightend you can do that by adjusting the belt tensioner thats done by losening the bolt that holds it in place then moving it so there is no more then half an inch of play in the belt and retightning the bolt. and if the tensioner is at its stops then the belt needs replacement.

You can adjust the guides on the side of the blower so that it rides on those. If they are set to low you will see the problem you have now. If they sit to low for a long period of time you can wear out the blade on the bottom.

See my tip on diagnosing small engines. It works for 2-stroke or 4-stroke engines.
It is best not to use starter fluid. Aerosol carb cleaner is what I use.

SOURCE: when i tip my toro
The primer bulb is replaceable (it is held in place with a ring with small tabs around it, behind the bulb). The carburetor's bowl may be loose and the bowl nut need to be tightened or the bowl nut (called that, but it is actually a small brass bolt) has an exterior washer that needs to be replaced. Another thing that may be causing your problem is the carburetor bowl-to-body gasket may be leaking and finally, the needle valve may not be completely shutting off the fuel going into the carburetor bowl. All of these parts are replaceable and the carburetor can be fixed to where it will not leak. The key is to determine exactly what carburetor the machine has. The manufacturer and model of the the engine and the year made are key here.
