Check to see if in line fuel shut off valve is open.If so,sounds like carb is gummed up.

Why I have a toro snowblower model#38272 that started a couple weeks ago and now will not start


Check wires for insulation damage. Spray Carb Starter Fluid into manifold and see if that gets the machine to turn over.

38120 toro snowblower won't start. The carb is filling with gas. New diaghram, needle and seat.It was running then stopped. I do have a spark with new spark plug. What could cause this


Have you checked the coil?
To check the coil. Put a spanner or tell someone to hold something by the spark gap and make sure they don't hold it in a way they get electric shocked.

And you should see a spark. If not try the metal to the frame ( be careful)
And should see spark.

My toro snowblower keeps stalling. It starts up fine, but won't run continuously.


If you haven't already, dump out gas and put fresh in it and try this, if it doesn't work you will have to clean the carb, take it apart and clean all jets ports etc and put back together and you should be Good to Blow Snow, pretty common problem with Small Engines that set half the season.

I have a toro snow blower that makes a popping sound when pulled but wont start any ideas


Have you tried using starter fluid? Sounds like the timing may be off or it may be flooded. Pull out the spark plug and see if it is wet. If so dry off the plug and pull the engine over with no plug (move the spark plug wire away from the spark plug and ground it out so it wont cause a fire). This will spit out the excess gas in the cylinder and then put it back together and try again. What model is the Toro?

Toro push mower with B & S engine won' start unless I put gas in spark plug hole.. I removed carburater bowl and bolt holding bowl is clear. What's wrong?


There is trash in your carburetor blocking the main jet. You are going to have to remove the carburetor and give the carburetor a thorough cleaning. Watch out for the spray carb cleaner, wear safety glasses or a face shield as when cleaning out the carb the passages can redirect back at your face.

I hope this gets you going again.

Wont stay running


Bad fuel or check for water in your fuel! Clean your carb and float bowl. Empty gas into a clear container, if there is two levels of liquid one of them is water. Of course make sure you have good spark plug.

Toro 2 stroke lawn mower won't start


Remove the Carb Bowl and on the bottom of the bowl clean the center of crust gas....

It blocks the gas from getting from the bowl to the inside of the carb.

Caused when gas dry's up in the bowl leaving deposits behind plugging up the works.

Toro Lawn Mower Won't Start


this is a very common problem with these toro mowers. the needle valve in the bowl of the carb. is plugged up with dirt or varnish from the fuel. just under the primer bulb there is the carb bowl. it has a nut under it that holds it on remove the bowl and make sure fuel flows constantly while the bowl is off. push up on the float to stop the gas flow. this could be messy and dangerous. careful with the gas. its flammable. best solution is to remove the carb and soak it overnight in a parts cleaner like gunk. caution small parts inside. this happins every year on mine no matter what i do. seems like the orifice is so small it clogs easily. good luck
