Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools
I stored my mower for the winter and took the battery out. The battery was charged two or three times with the most recent being in May of 2013. The mower worked great last fall, but now that I need it, it does not work. I attempted to hook up the battery to the mower (positive first, then negative), but, after hooking up the positive terminal, and attempting to connect the negative terminal, the terminals started to spark. As they sparked, the engine attempted to start every time it made connection with the terminals. After several times it sparked, it does not spark anymore, does not have any power to the mower, and does not try to start anymore. The key ignition is in the "off" position. I am at my wit's end and can not figure out why this is happening and why it is trying to start by itself. Hooking up the battery is an extremely easy thing to do, but obviously my mower wants to cause me headaches. Please help with a resolution to my problem. Thank you.
By trying to start it so many times sounds like you blew the fuse. your problem sounds like it started with a bad solenoid.take it off and test. if it is bad replace it. put a new fuse in and it should start as it is supposed to.

does it have a two cycle or four cycle engine on this unit????
if it's two cycle the piston and rings might me burnt and scored....
if it's four cycle,you need to check to see if the flywheel key is broken.didyou happen to hit some thing the last time you mowed????.to check the flywheel key you need to take off the blower housing so you can take off the center bolt that hold the flywheel on.you'll be able to see if the key is broken or not...

well if you can pinpoint the leak you may be able to repair it. if you test the compression in the engine you can tell if the rings or valve are bad. you need a specail tool to test compression, $45. let me know what you find

I pull the rope and it seems like it wants to start.It will not start with rope ? are you sure your brake control cable is adjusted right if not it could cause it not to start,you said after you pulled rope and trys to start you used it twice when ?

If you never used the starter,You need to have it checked, possible that it i froze up. Or brushes in starter arn't making contact. Also check connections. Good Luck

you'll need to pull the starter. It sound like your Bendick's is bad. that's the upper gear drive assay. the only other res ion would be, low power to the starter, and not receiving an acquit amount of amp to reach the rpm's it needs. good luck
