    I bought a 2006 self propelled Toro mower model 22500. when I try to start it I prime it three times like it says 2nd pull it starts but only runs about 3 or 4 seconds. I removed carb it was clean blew it out with air put it back on same thing won't run. It came with no blade so I don't know if that may be the problem with it not run or not.

Mower starts good but only runs 5 minutes befor stalling out and won't start again until cool. It idles OK when blade is NOT engaged. Cause? And how do you set the carb adjustment screws to max. p


No adjustment for carb on newer mowers. All mowers now have a low oil cutoff. Ensure oil is full. 30w oil. If any grey is observed vin oil drain all oil. Moisture in oil. Dump old oil out every 2 yrs and refill. Ensure spark pluf is clean and gapped correctly. Ensure air filter is clean. Replace spark plug and air filter each year. Always use Stabile in gas. Spray outside of carb with carb cleaner to ensure proper choke movement.

I have a Toro 20462 power mower -- about 15 years old, but until just today still running great! The spark plug is good, the gas is good, the oil is good the air filter is good. After priming, it starts...


Remove and clean the brass bolt that holds the float bowl on the carburetor. Clean out the bowl too. Use no metal objects to clean this bolt. It has 3 small holes...bottom...and on the sides near the top. Use carb/choke aerosol spray cleaner on it. IT can clog (esp. without an inline fuel filter on mower). Clean the bolt good, reinstall (not forgettting felt gasket between IT and the bowl) and your runnability problem and fuel flow problem should be solved as the bolt is also the main jet of the carburetor.

TORO 6.5 RUNS FOR 4 SECONDS AFTER PRIMING THEN DIES.pUT IN NEW SPARK PLUG,new gas,but after priming run for several seconds.. it dies again....can you help...sounds like dirt in carb??/ It had run...


Did you check the filter? If the engine doesn't get air they it could cause it to die out like that. Also make sure that there isn't anything in the air line to the carb.

Did you check the gas line and make sure that you are getting enough fuel?

Wont stay running


Bad fuel or check for water in your fuel! Clean your carb and float bowl. Empty gas into a clear container, if there is two levels of liquid one of them is water. Of course make sure you have good spark plug.

Mower starts and stops with in a few seconds


Ok your not getting fuel into the carburetor it sounds. This could be either your carb.needs cleaned or your low idle screw on the carb. needs adjusted. The idle screw is located directly underneath the air filter. Remove filter and turn clockwise all the way and then counter-clockwise 2 1/4 turns, then test. Adjust until it sounds about right.

I have to prime the toro mower every time I empty the bag to get it to start?


  1. what is the model, manufacturer and year of mower?
  2. has any maintenance been performed on this mower?
  3. if no, try replacing the spark plug and air filter (it's possible the spark plug could be fouled and/or the air filter is clogged) be sure to follow the manufacturers recommendations for oil, gas, filters and plugs.
routine maintenance involves:
  1. sharpen/replace blade
  2. oil change
  3. replace air filter
  4. replace spark plug
  5. new gas

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.

Poulan 6.75 Lawn mower will not start


Remove spark plug, clean and dry. Replace plug. Remove air filter. Spray WD-40 into carb opening; one second blast. Turn over engine, (pull handle). Engine should start briefly and run for 3 seconds.  If not, you are not getting spark to spark plug. If engine starts, you have a dirty carb and you can buy a rebuild kit from manufacture.
