Check your armeratur air gap. Where your flywheel is, it is a magnet on the fly wheel that when it goes around the armeratur it sends a spark, the depth needs to be business card size gap from the flywheel. If you remove the pull start housing you will see the spark plug wire running to the armeratur by adjusting that closer or farther away you get more volts which means more sparks. If that doesnt work replace the part and you will get spark.

Toro CCR 2450, Common starting problems? Fresh gas/oil mix. Good compression. Just pulls, no pops or sputters.


Next step would be to check the ignition module(coil),I have a lawnmower that uses the same 2 cycle engine. Check coil for spark by removing the spark plug from the block then connect the insulator side of the sparkplug back to the coil then ground the plug by touching the threaded side to the block away from the sparkplug hole while turning the engine over. Should see a spark, if not you'll need a new coil,not hard to replace. calls for Briggs & Stratton #80-1268 you can also use a Toro/Lawnboy coil #99-2911 or #99-2916 or #684049.

Toro lawn mower has no spark. Grounded spark plug no spark across electrodes.


Get a new coil go to psep.com and get yourself one and replace it it's easy, go for it. the only thing you have to worry about is the space between the coil and flywheel magnet. Measure old one with feeler gauge before you take off. Good Luck! Don't forget the thumbs.

Stalled out does not seem to get spark


First, you must find out if your getting spark or not. Remove plug, and ground it to the motor and pull cord, see if your getting spark. If you are, then your problem is your not getting fuel. If your not getting spark there are a couple of things that can cause this. !st, defective spark plug, Second, cable from control handle to engine may have stretched and is not releasing the kill switch. Disconnect the kill switch wire and check to see if you have spark, if you have spark, replace engine control cable. If with kill switch wire disconnected you still have no spark, you would have a defective magnito coil, which is rare, but does happen. This engine control cable kills the spark when you release the handle and also is the engine brake, It serves two functions.

I have a 5 year old Toro mower. No spark at the plug. Now what?


Hi there
If you don't have spark that means you have a bad ignition coil . To locate the ignition coil just follow the spark plug wire . First try to readjust the coil because with the time most of the coils goes loose with the vibration . The coil should have 2 bolts holding it against the flywheel . To readjust get a piece of paper and put it betwen the coil and flywhell and retight the bolts , remove the paper and see if there's spark , if not you have to replace the coil.
Hope this help

I have to prime the toro mower every time I empty the bag to get it to start?


  1. what is the model, manufacturer and year of mower?
  2. has any maintenance been performed on this mower?
  3. if no, try replacing the spark plug and air filter (it's possible the spark plug could be fouled and/or the air filter is clogged) be sure to follow the manufacturers recommendations for oil, gas, filters and plugs.
routine maintenance involves:
  1. sharpen/replace blade
  2. oil change
  3. replace air filter
  4. replace spark plug
  5. new gas

I have a Toro Wheel horse, 13-horse Briggs & stratton and have zero spark what do I look for. I replaced the spark plug and have a full charged battery. I know little about engines so if you suggest i...


Usually when you have zero spark, it's one of 3 things. Either there's a shutoff that is trying to shut it off when it's not supposed to, the coil is bad, or the flywheel key is sheared.
