Question about Toro Lawn Mower. 22 in. Personal Pace with Blade Stop System Self-

1 Answer

Toro Personal Pace sounds like it is running at half power

Toro Personal Pace that doesn't have an adjustable choke sounds like it isn't running at full speed anymore. Like the choke is on half power if that makes sense. I have replaced the air filter and cleaned out the carburetor bowl and no change. Starts up with out any trouble. Briggs 190cc engine only a few years old.

Got oil in it, or do you add oil. Left outside alot, fuel line clogged. Is the gas old. Check the blades and the exit portion of the clippings. Does it have a drive train for ease of moving. those can bog down a mower. good luck

Testimonial: "Just changed the oil and had drained out the old gas, put fresh stuff in. Blade seems okay, underside of deck is clear of any grass and debris. Wish I could adjust the choke on this model because that's what it sounds like it needs, but it is not adjustable. I'm not sure if a fuel line is clogged, but I did clean everything around the carb bowl and the also the line that goes to the back side of the air filter. Thanks for your reply. I can't find anything on the web regarding this yet and it is very frustrating for such a new mower "

    Figured out what my problem was. Ended up being the spring that connects to the linkage above the carb. I must have had a stick or something get up there and stretch out that spring. The tension was very loose. Once I compressed that a bit, all was good. I will order a replacement spring for that. Thanks for the help though.

SOURCE: Toro GTS 20332 (bought it 12 months ago) won't run

I believe that Toro Guarantees to start 1 Pull, was gas left in it all winter?, If so this is'nt covered under warranty, cause gas is to be ran out or dumped out at end of season this will prevent any gumming up of carb . did you completely disassemble carb? does it have a primer on it, those gskts need replacing, clean out the jet in bottum of float bowl,small holes,sometimes missed and remove and check your needle/seat to make sure that when float drops gas runs out then lift float up and gas should stop. hope this helped you,another thing spray carb cleaner in carb and pull over and see if it will start that way enough to keep running with choke to see if it will **** gas into it

SOURCE: The motor on my lawn mower starts easily and runs

This is usually caused by either a fuel float that is heavy due to taking on fuel where there is supposed to be an air cavity or.
There is debris in the float needle seat allowing excess fuel to over-fill the float bowl. The float needle has a rubber tip that seats against a tiny fat rubber washer called the seat. If there is debris in between the seat and the needle tip the fuel will NOT shut off causing the symptom you descibed.
If you provide a model number I will look up the inexpensive repair parts that will correct this symptom and provide you with a parts source.

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

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.

My Toro Model 20070 that until now has always started on the first pull, won't start at all now. It started fine last week. It's getting spark (a little more yellow than blue). I replaced the plug,...

Hold the butterfly valve (behind air filter) open with a screwdriver, while somebody else tries to start it. Toro has had problems with atuomatic chokes. If it fires right up, thats the problem! If so, just wire it open, or contact Toro for a repair kit. Try using starting fluid, not carb cleaner, and spray directly into the head through the spark plug port. If you didn't do it already, blow out all the ports in the carb with compressed air, or carb cleaner. Also, be sure the safety lever is engaging correctly (top bar on handle) at the engine. Lawn mowers are pretty simple, so the problem is most likely simple too.

It seems as if my toro personal pace mower is stuck in the choke position, it will not increase the RPM's. Could the be caused by a dirty air filter?

check to see if the idle spring on carburator is connected, if the pop off the engine will only idle a very low speed or choke out. plus it doesnt hurt to clean the air filter
