Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools

1 Answer

Carb. Problem? My lawn-boy model 4600 mower only runs at what seems to be idle speed. The throttle control has no affect on it. If I try to mow with it, it bogs down and the speed doesn't increase. Do you think it is a problem with the govenor or something with the carb.?

It could be the linkage from the govenor to the carb, maybe the throttle shutter is stuck. Try WD 40.

How do adjust for Speed stability on Lawn-Boy mower. It hunts up and down.


Speed control for motor is controlled by an automatic governor, so there isn't any adjustments. Surging is caused by an air leak. Has the air filter been changed? Spray card cleaner around that side of the engine to find the air leak. Does it have a choke adjustment? Make and model would be handy in answering this question!

Normally when you move the throttle control on the handle, all that is happening is that governor spring tension is increasing or decreasing pull on the linkage /governor arm. With engine off and plug wire removed, look for a small shaft coming out of the engine with an arm attached. Attached to the small arm will be linkage to the throttle on carb.. So when you move the throttle on the carb with your finger the arm moves also. There should be spring connected to opposite side of governor arm connected to throttle control at the handle or small lever or metal tab. When you incease pull on the spring, the engine will speed-up. Adjust as needed. Good luck

Mower runs at high idle no matter how the carb is adjusted


The carburetor is probably not the issue. There is a spring attached to the carburetor, the tab that it is attached to will control the engine "idle"speed. Adjust it lower for the mower to run at a slower speed. You should only need a pair of long pliers to do this. I hope this helps. If you have tried this and it is still not running correctly please click on add comment to let me know what you have tried. Thank you and I hope this helps.

Lawnmower engine idling to low


First, follow your throttle cable down to the carb. Locate the clamp that holds the housing in place and loosen it just enough to move the cable. Start the mower and adjust the idle by the screw that touches the same plate that your cable hooks to. Then push the throttle control to idle and retighten the cable clamp.

You need to check a few things. The spark first, you need to check if it is running correctly, does it have spark, by doing this: take out the spark, put it against a metal surface and pull the pull start if it spark, your good if not you need a new spark plug. Clean out your airfiilter it migth help too. Buy some carb and choke cleaner squirt it up theough the airfilter hole, and start the engine, this will clen the carb. yOU MIGHT NEED TO TAKE OUT THE CARB AND CLENA I OUT THROUGHOULY!!! Try that and it whould work after all these steps!

My mtd tradesman lawn mower does not run smooth. where is the idle mixture adj. screw? the engine is the tecumseh 5.5 hp model #VLV55 501029A(D)


The newer machines do not have a way for you to adjust the Idle, what you can do is change the spark plug or spray some carb cleaner or remove the air filter and run it for a few minutes without the air filter and see what happens
