SOURCE: My Toro self perpelled lawn mower starts then conks out.

It sounds like your fuel system is plugged up (or water in the carb) First i would make sure there is good fuel supply to the carb, then if so & not running, I would remove the carb and clean as it appears that it is running properly otherwise. Also check your air cleaner element as it may be totally plugged up.. Hope this helps you, Rick

SOURCE: Engine starts when primed but stops in seconds

it sounds like you have contaminants in the fuel and have clogged the fuel filter or carburetor, try changing fuel filter if there is one and back flush the fuel lines with carb cleaner spray and clean out fuel tank and clean with brake cleaner refill with fresh fuel.

SOURCE: troy bilt lawnmower not starting

In most cases it's not enough to just dump the gas out of the float bowl. The problem is that the gas has turned to varnish and varnish is sticky. It will put a nice coating over all the the interior of the carb. The only way to clean it is to dismantle it completely. This means removing the float bowl and float. Along with the needle.The important thing is that both the float and needle move freely and both the high and low idle screws are clean. Depending on the type of fuel filter you may also need to remove and clean it as well. If it is not an inline filter it most likely is located inside the tank. As long as your careful not to tear the float bowl gasket you shouldn't require a rebuild kit for the carb.
Hope this helps.

Toro personal pace 20372, starts fine, runs well for 30 or 40 minutes then dies. Starts up again when cooled down just a bit.


Need fuel that is not more than a couple months old

Need a good or clean spark plug

Have no idea how old it is, or how many years
you have used it

Sometimes you have to remove the head & clean the
carbon off the piston & head
That is a tune-up on small equipment

Make sure the air filter is clean

They usually start with the air filter off,but you don't
want to do that all the time

I have a Toro 16.5 riding lawnmower it stop and wouldn,t start back what could be my problem?


Battery charged? Bad fuel? Low on oil? 30w oil required. Clean carb. Check for improper ground on starting circuit. Ignition switch providing power to starter when key turned? Always use Stabile in gas. Remove bowl from carb ensure float is working properly. Float up no fuel flow, float down fuel flow. Ensure oil is full, low oil shutoff will not allow starting.

My 22" cut toro lawnmower with its 190cc Briggs & Stratton motor with automatic choke starts easily when cold and runs well. When you turn it off to empty the grass clippings bag, it will not restart...


You may want to check valve clearance, sounds borderline. You should have 11/1000s on the exhaust valve.The exhaust is usually the culprit, since it runs hotter.
