Check to make sure your safty switch is not engaging causing no spark other than that your coil would be bad but they hardly ever go bad i think your problem is with the safty switch

SOURCE: my toro lawnmower model 20331 won't start. I replaced the fuel, oil, and spark plug but it still won't start. whats wrong with it?

Hi dana
Make sure you are getting spark at the spark plug, to do this:
Remove your spark plug and check to be sure you are getting a bright blue spark at the spark plug.
You do this by grounding the plug on the head of the engine and cranking the engine or by pulling the crank rope...watching the plug for spark.
If you are getting a nice blue spark then skip A below and go to B.
A...If you do not get a nice blue spark then you may need to replace the electronic module.
Note: If you have to replace the module be sure to measure the position it is in, it is critical to starting.
Take a picture for later reassembly.
B...Also take some fine grit sandpaper (not emery) and lightly sand the flywheel where the magnet is located to clean any rust or corrosion from the magnet area.
Then follow the procedure below:
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Sounds like you have dirt/debris in your caburetor jets,fuel passages or a diaphgram that is becoming non-flexible.
Check/Clean/Replace your Air Filter, a dirty air filter can make your engine run to rich with fuel.
Note: ALWAYS USE COMPRESSED AIR TO CLEAN YOUR JETS AND PASSAGES, VERY IMPORTANT.
Note:Before you disassemble the carburetor:
Write down on a piece of paper and or take a picture of how the linkage attaches to your carburetor for later reference when you go to reinstall your carburetor.
Mark each piece with a awl, or some kind of sharp instrument that will make an alignment scratch before you disassemble the carburetor into separate pieces.
That way you will know which way it goes back together when you reassemble it.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or by using a very small shot of starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that, and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Be sure to check your fuel tank for water and dirt/debris, if there is water/debris then you need to clean your tank.
Check you fuel line/s condition...after a while they will degrade and need replacement.
Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one.
When you remove your fuel lines from the carburetor be sure to make a drawing or take a picture of how the lines are connected to the carburetor.
Also a good time to take a picture for later reference for reassembly.
If the mower is over a couple of years old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
The diaphgram may look good and flexible, but it can be deceiving and not act as a fuel pump as it should because it has become too hard and will cause hard starting,start and run and shut off, etc.
When you clean your carburetor, I recommend that you use a laquer thinner type cleaner to clean and dissolve the laquer build-up in the float and needle jet passages.
Be sure to remove all plastic and rubber parts before using the laquer thinner because it can dissolve the plastic parts and render them unuseable.
Be sure to use COMPRESSED AIR to blow out all the fuel and air passages.The higher air pressure is needed to blow some of the trash/debris from the fuel or air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Keep in mind that the float (if you have one) for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instructions you get with the carburetor kit, or you could also ask the parts man that you get your kit from.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their original position before you started.
Once you have your carburetor cleaned/rebuilt that should solve your problem.
Please take time to rate me

Hard pulling starter rope


You say Pull rope mechanism is ok, How do you know that? Ive's seen them get the rope a little off and gets caught being wedged into a small clearance. Is the rope wearing? I bet if you take it apart put a new nylon rope and some wd-40 in rubbing surfaces including the ratchet area it will be good as new. Crank bearing has to get really bad to effect pull. How is the spark?

Tip

How to fix a recoil rope starter on lawn and garden equipment.


This tip is to help you if your power equipment starter rope broke and needs to be replaced. <br /> Step One: Prepare the equipment to be worked on by disconnecting the spark plug wire from the spark plug. This will prevent accidental startups while working on the engine. <br /> Make sure safety systems are in place. If this is a ride on unit make sure the brake is set and the battery is disconnected. <br /> Step Two: Remove the Starter housing or blower housing. The starter itself will have at least three fastening points and may vary in shape depending on the machine. It is not recommended to remove any rivets if you come across them. Most machines with rivets are part of a larger housing that needs to be removed. <br /> Step Three: Remove the leftover rope and inspect the starter spring. Once off of the machine you can remove any old rope and test the spring. the spring test is to spin or charge the spring as if the rope was being pulled out. As long as tension builds up in the spring you are ready to put a new rope in. If the spring does not build tension order a new spring from a dealer like www.arcolawn.com <br /> Step Four: Charge the spring and install the rope. Charge the spring as mentioned above by rotating it as if the rope was being pulled. Once tight back the spring off one turn and put the rope into the starter through the housing and into the pulley. Tie a knot on either end ot the rope and then slowly let the rope into the starter (make sure the grip is between the two knots). <br /> Step Five: Reinstall the starter housing on the machine and test. <br /> I hope this helps.

Lawnmower blade wont turn


Probably bent the shaft. Disconnect the spark plug to prevent accidental starting and lay the lawn mower on its side. Slowly turn the blade with your hand and watch the center of the shaft. If it wobbles at all it is bent. $150 to $200 job. Probably time for a new mower.

Have a 2-4 hp lawnmower where the rewind spring and rope was broke. Have put new spring and rope on-works great in housing. When attach it to lawnmower the rope pulls out but won't retract back in. As soon...


When you remove the recoil shroud ( housing ), the square shaft sticking out should move freely in a counter-clockwise direction and you should hear clicks when you twist. If you don't hear the little balls clicking or the square shaft doesn't move freely counterclockwise, then that square shaft is rusted onto the end of the crankshaft and must be freed before it can be removed. This is a common problem for mowers left out in the elements. Sounds like the shaft is frozen onto the crankshaft end. Procedure: First, disconnect the spark plug. Get a magnet ready because 5 little balls are gonna come rolling out on this upcoming move. Take a 1/4

Lawn mower won't start


to check for firing remove the spark plug insert it in the plug boot and pull the rope while watching to see if the plug sparks be carefull not to touch the plug electrode while pulling the rope or it will shock you. If you don't have a spark, try a different plug. If still no spark the coil could be bad.

Spark plug wet will not start on lawnmower 6.75


you're still fighting with the large amount of fuel that was in it the first time it was flooded. One way to get the rest of it out, is to take the spark plug out, and pull the starting rope hard several times to force some of the fuel out. leave the plug out for a while, and pull it again every 10 minutes or so to introduce new air and get the fuel out. If you're not that patient, you can flash the cylinder, but be cautious with it. This is where you use a lighter to flash the cylinder. You can only do this if there's no fuel spilled on the mower, and never put your face near the spark plug hole; it will give a loud puff sound and you may have flames jet out, but only for a fraction of a second. Then put the spark plug in, and it will probably start first pull.
