Did you drain the fuel before you put it away? If not then you should drain the fuel and clean the carb. Gas when in lawn mowers and any other small gas engine will turn into a slim in a way and will block the carb. Drain the fuel and clean the carb system will run great when that is done

Sounds like the seat switch is not reading you are in the seat. Without a wiring diagram, it is difficult to say exactly.

I jave a toro timecutter z5035 and it starting making a popping noise when running. When blades are engaged the blades turn slow and the engine idles down and then will pick up running for for 30 sec


clean the spark plug or even change it , when you store it you must run it out of gas which means shut the gas off so the gas does not turn into polish that clogs you carb , needle and seat etc ,

Timecutter PTO clutch switch clicks when I engage the switch but will not engage the belts


Check under the deck and make sure the blades can spin freely, there will be resistance but mostly check to see if they are stuck. If they are not and can move, yiu can try to remove the belt from the pto, engage and see if it spins then. If it does not than there is probably an issue with pto clutch

07 mtd yardsman mower with 13.5 tecumseh runs great untill engage mower , then dies down and blows black smoke


This sounds like a micro switch acting up, the first switch to check is the seat switch, make sure the block connecter is pushed fully home on the switch ( there is often a fail safe inside the connecter should the block come away from the switch )

The 12.5 murray 38 in runs fine until i engage the blades,while engaged the mower runs fine for about five seconds then starts to spit and sputter.once i disengage the blades it runs smoothly again


The problem is in the carb. First try using some bottled fuel system cleaner at a heavier dose than for a car, but be aware that too much may damage the carb. Then run the fuel out and fill with fresh and try again. When you engage blades and it sputters try to throttle down until it runs smooth and then slowly bring engine back up to mowing speed. You should be able bring it up and mow. Run out the fuel tank. If unable to do this trick and get the fuel system cleaner through you will need to have the carb. taken apart and cleaned thoroughly.

White smoke and blade won't engage


Sounds like a low compression problem. The piston rings have most likely failed and oil is seeping past them and burning, thus the white smoke. An engine needs three things to run...Spark, Compression, and Fuel. Just take the mower back as it is still probably under warranty. Mike. Rate 100% please.
