Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools

1 Answer

Toro mower won't start. No sound when I turn key.

I have a Toro wheel horse 416-8, riding mower. Changed plugs, battery, fuses, pushed the clutch in, turned the key... nothing. No sound. Did it on and off last year. but after I would push down the plug caps and blow the dust off from the fuses, it would magically start. Any Ideas?

Definately connection some where i would use a volt meter and make sure where power is and make sure it is getting too where you need it, if its getting too the soliniod or not then too the starter.

Toro wheel horse 13-38xl lawn mower won,t start, makes buzzing sound when key is turned on,checked solenoid with screw driver but will not start motor, tuned pulley under motor and wheel on top of motor...

If you crossed the two battery terminals on the solenoid and the engine did not turn over, I would check the battery terminals first to see if they are tight. Then check the terminals at the solenoid to see if they are tight. If all of this is tight and you are sure you have 12 volts at the solenoid, then your starter is bad.

Mower will not start. Makes a loud fast clicking noise when the key is turned.

Loud ticking usually indicates near dead battery, take it out and charge it. If it still ticks you may need to replace it as they are only good for a few years.
