Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools
I asked someone to help me put on a new spark plug. Well the guy wanted to do more. Regardless he was mad when I asked for my mower back 2 wks later. Is there a screw or something on the carborator that could be adjusted to keep it running that this guy could of done to not make it start now?? There is no lever or anything on this mower to adjust the idle. It is a 22 inch Toro Recycler. I am a single mom with no money the lawn mower was hardly used in the past year. This guy wanted $100 bucks to get it ready for spring all I wanted was a spark plug as I had no tool to get it off. He took it and came back saying I needed a carb redo at $50 and then bad valves??? at another $125. I could buy a new one at that but I have no money can anyone help me out to fix this myself?

SOURCE: Toro Lawn Mower Won't Start
this is a very common problem with these toro mowers. the needle valve in the bowl of the carb. is plugged up with dirt or varnish from the fuel. just under the primer bulb there is the carb bowl. it has a nut under it that holds it on remove the bowl and make sure fuel flows constantly while the bowl is off. push up on the float to stop the gas flow. this could be messy and dangerous. careful with the gas. its flammable. best solution is to remove the carb and soak it overnight in a parts cleaner like gunk. caution small parts inside. this happins every year on mine no matter what i do. seems like the orifice is so small it clogs easily. good luck

Your carburetor is definately dirty or it needs new gaskets, screen, and needle valve( carb. kit). Is this something that you think you might want to attempt? It really isn't that difficult. Can be done in about an hour. If so, let me know and I can give you a few tips.

The problem is that the gas that sat in the carb all winter glazed it over and gummed it up. Begin by going to any auto parts store, like an aiutozone, and getting a bottle of carb. cleaner. Seafoam is one I use. Add it to your gas, one ounce per gallon of gas. Also, pick up a can of engine starting spray.
Remove the air filter and spray the engine starting spray into the air intake. Pull start the engine and give it additional squirts of engine starting spray until it runs smoothly.

My son just bought a new Toro self propelled 22" recycler and has had problems on two different occasions. The mower just bogs down to a stop and when he tried to pull the starter cord, it was very VERY difficult to pull. At first I thought the engine had seized up for some reason (no oil?), but we found the problem.
First, disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug (to avoid the engine starting); tip the mower on its side and check very carefully the pulley and transmission belt. In his case, a piece of wood had gotten stuck between the belt and the pulley. Removing it fixed the problem (now he mows a little higher so as not to get so close to any debris). (We did have one further problem after that - the engine would not start - not even fire. After pulling and pulling, checking for gas, and checking that the air filter was cleean, we decided to check if the cylinder was flooded - we removed the spark plug, wiped and dried if off, and replaced it. It started right away.)
This belt 'n pulley arrangement isn't the best idea, if you ask me.
