Toro Weedeater model 51932 will start however won't stay on

Have a 1 1/2 old Toro 51932 Weedeater that recently stopped running after immediately turning on. Is the weedeater at the end of its life or can this be repaired?

    I am having a similar problem with my Toro 51932 however it will stay running when I tilt it to the left (fuel cap facing the ground). When I tilt it back to 'normal' position to start trimming it seems to choke out and stop running within 5-10 seconds.
    Any thoughts or ideas would be much appreciated.
    Thank you.

SOURCE: My weedeater won't run in 'run'.

Sounds like the carburetor needs adjusting. The owners manual should show you how to adjust the carburetor. If not, I would take this to the place of purchase and ask them to repair or replace it.
It should be under warranty for at least 2 years. I have had the same problem and when the carb would not adjust to run properly. I took it back and got a new one . This was at lowes and they were really great about it. If you decide to return it, clean it up real good.
In california we have different regs on outdoor power equipment and can adjust the idle only. The carbs are different for the rest of the US.
They can usually be adjusted, If not take it back. You deserve to get what you pay for without problems like this.

SOURCE: weedeater wont run

Take the red and blue limiters off to adjust. Back out 1- 1 1/4 turns and go from there.

SOURCE: weedeater will not run with choke off

Check your carburettor mounting screws,they might be loose and it would mean the engine is
getting to much air and it would leak gas. Stephen

SOURCE: weedeater starts and immediately shuts off

Change gas, and spray out carb passages. If you tampered with the mix screws then its a whole nother story!

SOURCE: Weedeater starts strong , briefly runs and completely stops.

If it is not REEKING of unburned gas, likely the idle circuit in the carb is fine, but your high-speed jet/pintle seat is caked with crud...

If it was stored with fuel in it, you are going to find that nothing short of a rebuild on the carb is going to help you. :( Luckily, if you are handy many of these smaller diaphragm type carbs can be rebuild with tweezers, slot screw drivers, needle-nosed pliers, can of spray carb cleaner and a rebuild kit from any hardware shop. All told you're going to at most spend $16 bucks. If the engine is otherwise sound with all the work you put into replacing lines, fuel pickup/filer/stainer, the carburetor rebuild route will perk it right up. Good luck!

Won stay running


Check carburetor & air filter. Clean off all dirt and clean air filter. check age of gas. Cannot be more than 30 days old. Make sure to use fresh gas w/synthetic 2-cycle oil @ 40:1 ratio (1 gal.) Gas to 3.2 oz. Oil). Do not use old or stale oil/gas mixture. Before putting in fresh fuel, press the primer several times. A small amount of gas might show up in the fuel tank. Remove fuel. With carburetor cleaner, spray carburetor. Put in small amount of fresh fuel. Just enough to cover the fuel filter. Then press primer with fuel cap off, and watch to see if fuel is flowing smoothly. If not or if plastic primer bubble does not come back to original shape after pressing, then you have to take carburetor apart and clean or get new carburetor.

Toro Power Clear 418 ZE Snow Blower won't stay started


The main jet of your carb is clogged and you need to open carb and clear the obstruction - spray carb cleaner on the bolt that holds the gas container to bottom of carb - also spray all the innards along with any tube that protrudes into the gas can.

Then using air compressor blow the sucker out and reassemble. That should do it.

Toro model #51932 won't idle, runs fine above idle


hello sir, my machine will only start when pumping primmer bulb or squirting fluid in the carburetor than stops. the fuel line has broken off, in most small carburetors this is a ongoing problem.old fuel will crystallize when left in tank for a long time.plugging up ports, fuel lines, small screen in carburetor.fuel lines will dissolve clogging carb.this is why it will run when the choke is on creating a vacuum to where there is fuel forced in the carb to rum,also the gas will evaporate leaving the oil behind clogging up carb.the thing to do is remove carb. and clean out,replacing gaskets or fuel line if necessary.use carb cleaner to clean out carb.make sure to make note where fuel line go.the fuel filter broke off of fuel line letting debris get in carb plugging it up.the muffler is known to clog up a lot on these machines where they want run. the compression should be 60 to 120 lbs any thing below 60 is junk. when adjusting the carb screws turn in all the way than turnout 1 1/4 turns turn in slow until machine runs also you need to check for spark by removing plug and grounding against engine to check spark, ok.a new spark plug would be a good ideal too , if you are going to make these repairs use new fuel line and filter,hope this helps,any comments welcome,thank you, ==

Have gts toro, engine starts then stops can not get it started.. r s


Your mower engine has to have these things WORKING to run: 1. Compression (engine in good shape) 2. Strong Spark (magneto air gap has to be correct for strong spark) 3. Clean air ( good, clean air filter w/no air leaks) 4. Clean, fresh fuel supply (gas less than 30 days olds with an inline filter installed in mower's fuel line). These things are assuming the mower hasn't struck an immovable object such as concrete, tree stump etc. recently. This will shear the flywheel key and timing may be off so far that engine won't start. So, where would you like to start my friend? Try checking these things. In the meanwhile....we can try to "coax" the engine into running. Remove the spark plug. Get an aerosol can of carb/choke cleaner spray. Spray a couple of shots into the engine. Reinstall plug. Choke the carb and attempt to start. This may or may not work, according to the conditions listed earlier. If this doesn't get it running, remove the plug and try it again.
We are trying to get it to run on its own, so it will start (or attempt to start) drawing fuel from the carburetor. Sometimes the brass bolt that holds the carburetor float bowl on gets clogged. You drain the gas, remove the bolt and clean all the small hole in the bottom and along the sides of it. This bolt is also the main jet of the carb. Cleaning this with carb cleaner can only help. If you do this, use NO metal objects to poke or scrape the bolt. The holes are metered and have to stay that way. Check for spark, check your air filter, see if the plug gets wet after you attempt to start. If it doesn't get wet or even smell like gas, then likely you have a fuel flow problem. Try ALL these things and post back; and again, if you have hit something solid recently with the mower, you will have the replace the flywheel shear key. It is a small aluminum $1.00 part so don't worry. Post back as needed. We wish to help.
