Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools

Open Question

Personal pace don't work (Toro Model 20095) how do I adjust it?

Personal pace don'twork - when I pull the P.P Bar up, the cable down by the engine moves and the spring just beside the cable lengthens out but the PP does not move - I have to push it -- there is no action from the personal pace at all -- it's just like having a mower that does not have the self-propelled feature. My Toro is a 21 in Super Recycler , Model # 20095. On page 10 in the Toro manual -figure 18 (using the self-propel drive) there is a very small # that is G003221 ( I don't know if that is the cable # or just the figure # but it is there. How do I adjust this or do I need to replace something?

SOURCE: toro self propelled mower will not move

This is a very simple solution, When you pull the lever it simply pushes a pulley into the belt to make it tight. Most of the time the belt has come off or maybe the cable broke. Turn the mower over and you will see the belt. My money is on the belt off.

Your self-propel is probably belt driven. Belts can make an awfully lot of noise when unhappy. Possible it has rolled over and is running on the wrong side of the belt or is worn and just needs replaced. Hope this helps.,

Try taking the back wheels off and lubricating the joint cogs and wheels with ,say, 3 in 1 oil . The dealer recommended doing this once every couple of years as preventative maintenance when I bought mine , and it has solved sticking problems for me .

It's not that hard. I've never done it on my Toro GTS 5.0, but I have done it on a Briggs and it's pretty much the same. Start by removing the 10mm bolts around the perimeter of the engine shroud. DON'T remove the 4 top bolts on the recoil housing. You might have to remove the fuel tank first. Drain it, then loosen the 2 8mm screws and lift it straight up. No need to disconnect the fuel line, just set the tank aside. After removing the 10mm bolts, the shroud should lift right off. Flip it over and you will see the recoil pulley. Remove any leftover cord from the pulley. Now you need to wind the pulley against the spring in the direction it goes when you pull the cord. It might wind 2 or 3 revolutions but don't overdo it. Now you will need some sort of clamp to hold the pulley in place as you line up the slot in the pulley with the opening where the handle goes. Next, feed the new cord through the opening and into the pulley and tie a knot to keep it from slipping out. Carefully release the clamp and let the pulley slowly wind the new cord onto itself. Finally, attach the handle on the other end of the cord and test it. If you can pull the handle and the cord comes out and it retracts normally, re-install the shroud and tank.

SOURCE: How do i adjust the

There are four problems I can think of.

1. The belt has broken or slipped off the gears.
2. The gears could be broken.
3. The wheels could be worn out and won't propel the mower.(I doubt this one)
4. The lever you move to engage the wheels isn't working.

Start with the lever and check to see that it is connected and intact. If it is then take the cover off of the wheel where the belt and gears are located. Be sure you remember which bolts go where and how you removed the cover! Then look for anything broken or out of place.

I think you can fix it. The parts should be easy to find since you got it from Sears. Good Luck!

Toro model 20332. Have put new transmission, belt and new drive wheels on back. When I use the personal pace bar it makes a grinding noise. Doesnt make noise unless I push that down.


Sounds like either the gears on the wheels or ends of the trans shaft are bad, or the internals of the trans are bad. Are the parts actually new-new, or used and new to the machine, you didn't specify. What happens when you manually spin the pulley on the top of the trans in either direction?

Toro 20333 self propel. Doesn't engage. l


Is the tension spring gone? How is the cable? Usually there is a spring at the end of the cable in which when you pull back on the bar with your hands, this tightens the belt so that it engages with the engine allowing the wheels to turn.

How do I replace the torsion spring in the handle of a Toro Personal Pace lawnmower?


Thanks so much Jamie. I had the top of the handle off but couldn't get any
further. I had to use a screwdriver on one side to get the brass bar out of the
plastic channel (I was afraid I would crack the plastic but didn't). I was able to remove the bar from the handle by myself with lots of effort ( BTW in your
solution did you mean your son pulled vertically up on the handle while you pushed vertically down on the bar?). I had one foot on one side of the handle and pulled up on the other side while pushing down on the bar. Isn't the web and Google amazing. The Toro sight didn't have a service manual. So I just typed "How to replace the torsion spring on a toro lawnmower" in Google an the question came up. I think Toro has a design issue with an overstress point on the spring. That part is on back order at the factory.
I did it.

How do u adjust the personal pace toro...doesnt pull itself like it did.


Up on the left side of the handle should be the bracket that holds the drive cable to the handle bar. Take two 7/16" wrenches and loosen the clamp that holds the cable. Slide cable down towards the deck about 1/4" , then re-tighten clamp. Test the mower to see if it adjusted, might have to go 1/8" or possibly more. Hope that fixes it, some of these mowers have had a problem with the transmissions gears going bad from improper adjustment or lack of grease in the gear box. Also make sure the drive belt is good.

pull your spark plug and see if it will pull then, if so then it is hydro locked with fuel which can be caused y a bad fuel cap, not venting or a stuck open needle in carb causing gas to flood cylinder
