SOURCE: my toro lawnmower model 20331 won't start. I replaced the fuel, oil, and spark plug but it still won't start. whats wrong with it?

Hi dana
Make sure you are getting spark at the spark plug, to do this:
Remove your spark plug and check to be sure you are getting a bright blue spark at the spark plug.
You do this by grounding the plug on the head of the engine and cranking the engine or by pulling the crank rope...watching the plug for spark.
If you are getting a nice blue spark then skip A below and go to B.
A...If you do not get a nice blue spark then you may need to replace the electronic module.
Note: If you have to replace the module be sure to measure the position it is in, it is critical to starting.
Take a picture for later reassembly.
B...Also take some fine grit sandpaper (not emery) and lightly sand the flywheel where the magnet is located to clean any rust or corrosion from the magnet area.
Then follow the procedure below:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sounds like you have dirt/debris in your caburetor jets,fuel passages or a diaphgram that is becoming non-flexible.
Check/Clean/Replace your Air Filter, a dirty air filter can make your engine run to rich with fuel.
Note: ALWAYS USE COMPRESSED AIR TO CLEAN YOUR JETS AND PASSAGES, VERY IMPORTANT.
Note:Before you disassemble the carburetor:
Write down on a piece of paper and or take a picture of how the linkage attaches to your carburetor for later reference when you go to reinstall your carburetor.
Mark each piece with a awl, or some kind of sharp instrument that will make an alignment scratch before you disassemble the carburetor into separate pieces.
That way you will know which way it goes back together when you reassemble it.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or by using a very small shot of starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that, and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Be sure to check your fuel tank for water and dirt/debris, if there is water/debris then you need to clean your tank.
Check you fuel line/s condition...after a while they will degrade and need replacement.
Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one.
When you remove your fuel lines from the carburetor be sure to make a drawing or take a picture of how the lines are connected to the carburetor.
Also a good time to take a picture for later reference for reassembly.
If the mower is over a couple of years old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
The diaphgram may look good and flexible, but it can be deceiving and not act as a fuel pump as it should because it has become too hard and will cause hard starting,start and run and shut off, etc.
When you clean your carburetor, I recommend that you use a laquer thinner type cleaner to clean and dissolve the laquer build-up in the float and needle jet passages.
Be sure to remove all plastic and rubber parts before using the laquer thinner because it can dissolve the plastic parts and render them unuseable.
Be sure to use COMPRESSED AIR to blow out all the fuel and air passages.The higher air pressure is needed to blow some of the trash/debris from the fuel or air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Keep in mind that the float (if you have one) for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instructions you get with the carburetor kit, or you could also ask the parts man that you get your kit from.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their original position before you started.
Once you have your carburetor cleaned/rebuilt that should solve your problem.
Please take time to rate me

I have a Toro 22"


Odds are the battery needs replaced. If it is a 12V battery, you could try jump starting to test the starter to verify. If it is a 6V battery you will have to find another one to jump. You could check the battery with a multimeter to check voltage if you have one or know of someone who does. Make sure you know how to do this properly so as not to destroy the meter. The meters can be cheap or expensive, depends on the model and the features, but always bad idea to let out the magic smoke.

I hope this helps.

My Toro model 20018 won't start. I've changed the plug, air filter and put in fresh gas. Doesn't seem to be getting any spark.


Check if there is spark. Take out the spark plug again and hold against cylinder head with screwdriver. Start motor as usual, see if there is spark on plug when starting. if there is no spark replace ignition module .The next thing is there fuel getting to engine. My guess is that you have a plugged carb. jet. Clean out and reassemble. Be careful not to lose the small parts. Good luck

I have a toro 20018. The bracket that holds the wire from the starter and battery has a cable that pulls the switch together at the bottom and off the kill switch at the top --- it has completely...


Bypassing probably isn't a good option as far as the kill switch is concerned because it is an important safety feature you want to always have. I'm not sure if you are in need of the bracket or the cable. Parts are available, finding them is the usual problem. OK

The cable can be found here. There are 2 listed. One is the traction (drive) and the other is brake (kill switch).
http://www.mowpart.com/partslookup.html#/Toro_Consumer/20018%2c_22%22_Recycler_Lawnmower%2c_2002_(SN_220000001-220300000)/HANDLE_ASSEMBLY/20018-25560-2002/3329%7c%7e334-%7c%7e3340008-0006

The bracket is possibly listed here as part number 6. It is listed as the mount for the switch. Your mower has different serial numbers and about 3 versions of diagrams are listed. This vendor has very good diagrams that include yours. Here is the diagram of the switch bracket with the starter assembly. If this isn't what you need, click on the menu tab above the diagram to view another location on the mower.

Having trouble with the drive train on my TORO walk behind MOD. 20018


This is from a service note in shop:

"SUBJECT: Self-propelled system locks up or does not work properly. If pushed the wheels will not roll. (may be accompanied by grinding or clicking)

SITUATION: Inadequate lubrication results in the key or drive pinion sticking.
CORRECTION: Remove the drive wheel, clip ring, thrust washer, pinion, key and spring. Clean any lubricant or rust from the parts. Lubricate generously with anti-seize and reassemble.
Note: More information regarding the service of this drive system is in the Walk Power Mower Drive Systems Service Manual, Form #492-4733.

Beginning in April of 2002 Toro began making changes in their production process to ensure proper lubrication. This was done in several steps, each has improved the situation. Please remind your customers that lubrication of the wheel pinion clutch is part of normal maintenance and is covered in the owner's manual. Three to four drops of engine oil on each side of the pinion is required every 25 hours, or at least once a year.
"

parts for this unit can be looked up at www.arcolawn.com
good luck

Toro Personal Pace Mower won't start w/ electric starter


There are a couple of things you can check;

First, check to make sure the bendix is engaging. It is the gear that meshes with the fly wheel.

If it is, then try and see how fast the motor is spinning. Don't look at the blade though. It could be a faulty starter motor.

Make sure to also check the battery voltage with a volt meter. It should read at 12.0 or higher.

It sounds like the starter drive may be jammed. It should not be engaged unless you are using the starter motor. Take the spark plug wire off, put on heavy leather gloves, and try turning the blade by hand to dislodge the starter drive. If it does dislodge, plug the spark plug wire back up and try the pull start again.
