Toro Tecumseh mower won't start or stay running

Can get the mower to start by removing the air filter and blocking the air intake. I tried the adjustment screw on the side but cannot get the mower to start any other way.

    When you put your hand over intake, you are choking it. Does the choke not work?

Sounds like the automatic choke to me. When it acts up next time, remove the air filter, and observe the butterfly valve on the carb. Hold it open with a screwdriver, and see if it starts and runs. I have found that wireing the thing wide open solved my Toro problems. The mower is still under factory warrenty however, so you can always take it back! Hope this helps my friend!

This sounds like a fuel delivery problem. Maybe remove the carb and tear it down and then soak it overnight in a cleaner after removing all the moving parts...not real hard normally...then let dry and reassemble...If this doesn't improve the fuel delivery problem, maybe get another carb for it....Make sure the air filter is not plugged up, blocking air flow to the carb itself..just something to make sure of at first.

I have the same mower and problem. Found out the issue was the carburetor. Pull the Carb and do a quick cleaning. Order the replacement kit prior to working on. My bowl o-ring was shot and I couldn't get a seal after cleaning it out.

No fuel filter but there is the air filter. Try removing the air filter and starting the mower. If this works replace the air filter. If not, then check the engine's carb. Engine was made by Tecumseh. There aren't many parts to a Tecumseh carb so replacing the few parts (gasket around bowl, float, needle and seat) isn't a lot of trouble.
