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

Blade won't engage - mower starts and propells itself, but when the yellow arm is pulled and lowered to engage the blade, nothing happens.


The blade is probably belt driven, and the belt is either broken, need adjusting, worn that bad, or there is a pulley problem. Get it in the air and check that the belt tightens. It will not be completely tight, there should be a tiny bit of play when engaged.

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.

Have wheel horse riding lawnmower that will not engage the blades


Take a look underneath, either the belt has stretched too much and its too long now or it has broke or fallen off. It could be that one of the pulleys have become frozen but you should hear squealing or the engine might stall. Good luck.

Toro TimeCutter z4200 will not start


First check to see if there is a fuel shutoff under the tank. On some models there is a fuel filter screen inside the tank where the fuel line connects to the tank. If niether of these work, R&R the carb.
