There are several safety switches that prevent operation in case the rider falls off, etc. First check seat safety switch...the likely culprit. It must close ensuring a person is in the seat for movement or blade operation. Find a toro wiring diagram, or visually wire trace, or just inspect the proper operation of all safety switches. DO NOT BYPASS SAFETY SWITCHES, but ensure they are working properly for SAFE OPERATION.

SOURCE: Mower starts but when the blade is engaged it stalls

Check the pulleys on the deck...one of them is jammed or rusted to the point that will not turn.

SOURCE: Hello,

It sounds like a fuel restriction, check the siphon tube. Also make sure your oil isn't over full.

Remove float bowl from carb. Ensure gas flows with float hanging down. Ensure gas flow stops with float pushed up.. Remove float and meter needle. clean passage way were meter needle is inserted with a bread wrapper wire, with 1 in of plastic peeled off it, wire should be observed behind choke flap when fully inserted thru passage way. Replace float and meter needle. Clean float bowl. Observe float bowl screw, look to see if it has a hole thru it, if so clean with wire. Reinstall float bowl. Try to start.

When you cleaned the carb did you clean out the metering jet with a needle and blow out. It only takes a tiny spec of dirt to raise hell with these small carbs.

I have a problem starting my Toro Power Max 828 LE snow blower. It has fresh gas and a new spark plug. When you prime it it doesn't seem to be getting gas. It also has an electric start that is working...


Take a spray bottle and spray gas into the carb and see if it starts.If it starts you more than likely have a carb problem. first thing check and make sure gas is flowing to carb. Take the line off at the carb and see if gas flows through the line. If you have gas to the carb you will have to take carb off and clean it out and check to see if float is stuck closed.you might want to put a rebuild kit in it while it,s apart.

What is wrong with a Toro GTS5 that starts well but dies 5-10 seconds later. I have changed the spark plug, air filter and oil. New gas too. Any suggestions? Thanks.


I had a similar problem. I'll bet I took off the carb. 5 - 6 times and cleaned it with no success. Very fustrating! One time while checking the fuel level I accidently left off the gas cap, I started it and while running I put the gas cap back on and started to mow and about 10 seconds it died. I thought could'nt be! So I loosened the cap, restarted and it kept running. Any way the small vent hole was plugged. Thats my story!. Good luck.

Toro personal pace mower 5 yrs old only runs 10-15 seconds.


Was gasoline left in the tank during off season? Sometimes gas will break down and clog the jets in the carb. The priming bypasses the carb so when you put fuel in by pumping the bulb it runs, but dies becasue no additional fuel is coming through the carb after the primed fuel is burned off. Sounds like you need to clean the jets in the carb and in the future, use Stabil in gasoline to keep it from breaking down.
