If the mower was lying up for a time you will need to remove and clean out the carburettor and fill with fresh fuel.Stephen.

SOURCE: my lawn mowers carburator overflow and leak gas

If the mower/weedeater is over a year 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.
Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and 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.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using 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.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instrucitons you get with the carburetor kit.
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 orginal position before you started.

Mower hit a rock and won't start


On most push mowers, there is a "key" that is located on the end of the crankshaft, opposite end of the blade, that drives the flywheel. It's a small rectangle piece of metal that connects the two. When the inertia of the blade stops abruptly, the flywheel acts as a safety for the engine, and shears the key. Tools are made to remove the flywheel and videos online for repair assistance. Replacement keys are specific to the engine you are working on. Hope this helps!

The way i set the govenor is, slacken the screw on the engine govenor arm, push the arm fully over to open the throttle wide open, now turn the actual govenor shaft within the arm in the same direction, fully retighten the govenor arm screw,

Toro lawnmower Wiil not start


Remove carb float bowl. Clean bowl. Observe float bowl screw, look for hole thru bolt, if present use thin wire to clean out. Float should be hanging freely and gas should be flowing, raise float gas should stop. Pinch off gas line or use shut off valve. Remove pin from float, remove float and needle meter. Use thin wire to clean out passage were meter needle is inserted, wire should pass thru to behind choke. Replace float & meter needle. Replace float bowl. Pull rope half way several times. Inspect primer bulb for cracks or leak. Try to start, may take 5 or more pulls to prime.

Toro lawn mower won't start


3 most common possibilities: Most gas mower carburetors have a tiny hole for the fuel to rise into the vacuum venturi throat of the intake. The hole in this riser tube which goes down the center of your float chamber to the area where the fuel sits in the bowl is only about as big as dental floss. Take the tine of a wire brush to clear it of crystallized or varnished gasoline and oxidized pot metal tube crust. When they make stainless carburetors, it will eliminate half of the heart attacks caused by this problem. Additives and condensation that settle out in old gas also can lead to clogging. Another very common problem is shearing the aluminum alignment pin in the top of the crankshaft when the mower whacks a log, root or rock. The inertia splits the alignment pin in half and throws spark timing off. So it backfires or won't run. Also check your spark by grounding the fat end of the sparkplug with a jumper cable to the engine casing, leave it plugged to the wire and pull the cord to see if it is firing. Keep spark away from fuel. Ignition points in some small engines get crusty when sitting in humid conditions. So they have to be filed clean of oxidation for proper contact and sparkplug operation. Small engines like rich mixtures and starting fluid when they are cold.

I have a Toro Super Recycler GTS 6.5 HP. Upon starting the mower white smoke comes out of the exhaust (silver housing) on the front. The smoke stops after about 2 minutes of running. Any ideas??


Oil level too high? *(check oil level with dipstick fully screwed down!)

or

Leaking valve guide *(rare.)

Cylinder walls not sealing well and oil leaking past rings. *(less rare...nothing you really can do about....just getting used up)

I would change the oil and be very careful to fill only within the full range.
Then, run the unit once to clear the muffler out.

Good luck and be careful!

We can't find the engine model #or the mower ID #. We have a toro recycler


The mower ID is on the body of the mower under the plastic flap for the bagger at the rear of the mower. The engine Id should be on the front of the engine possibly on the exhaust guard screen.
