Lawn mower batter charger blows circuit breaker

When I plug in my battery charger on my Toro electric start, self propelled walk behind mower, it blows the circuit breaker. Don't know if its the charger, battery, or the electric outlet on my mower that the charger plugs into.

I'd try plugging it into another outlet first, then try turning off any other appliances that might be on that same circuit. If it continues to trip the breaker, I'd take it to the small engine shop.
hope this helps

SOURCE: Craftsman self propelled lawn mower will not propell

Take off the cover up front on the self propel. Engage the self propel and make sure your cable is not broken. If that is ok then remove the wheels and inspect the molded cogs on the inside of the wheels and make sure they are not stripped out. If they are stripped go to www.sears.com and on the tool bar click on parts direct. Under model number enter yours and it will take you to a parts diagram. Get the part number for the wheels and go to local small engine parts dealer and get new. You can also do a search on the web for the wheels and maybe get them cheaper.

Good luck and let me know if this helps or you need any more help.

SOURCE: my toro self propelled isn't self propelling

It may just be a matter of adjusting the cable. Sometimes they dont get them adjusted just right from the factory,heres what you do. Locate the plastic shroud in front of the push mower that covers the drive unit.Determine which screwdriver or torx bit is needed to remove shroud and remove it. After removal you will see a pulley with belt around it, as you pull the handle back to engage self propel you should see the pulley move into the belt to put tension on the belt. You can do this with it running to see if enough tension is being put on the belt,if not, locate the cable end where the small bracket holds the cable in place. Loosen the cable bracket and move cable until you have correct tension again,hope this helps.

SOURCE: my craftsman rotory lawn mower 6.5 hp self

You have water in in the carborator, I'll bet. I had this same problem. Here's what I did.

I emptied the gas tank, put in a new spark plug, changed the oil and then unscrewed thd big nut on the bottom of the float container (attached to the carborator near the rubber gas injector button) and emptied and cleand the float container. Then i put it all back together, pulled the cord and the same thing happened, but this time i could keep it going by having my daughter constantly pushing the rubber gas injector button. After it had run for a minute with this constant pushing of the button, all the water was gone from everytwhere and it worked.

SOURCE: electric lawn mower repeatedly trips house circuit breaker

The breaker is tripping because there is a short in the mower electrical circuit -- most likely in the motor winding -- it overheated.

If you have a multimeter measure the resistance (ohms) of the motor winding by putting the meter probes on the two flat prongs of the power cord with the mower switch on. If you get near zero ohms, the winding is shorted -- motor "burned up".

Using the multimeter again, check for continuity between the round ground pin on the power cord and each of the two flat prongs. If you get continuity on either of these, there is a short to the mower chassis. This can probably be corrected without much expense.

My bet is on the motor winding being shorted.

Have a self-starting, self propelled toro lawn mower about 5 years old, I ran it out of gas by accident & now it won't start


It seems to be an obstruction in your fuel delivery system. Get a can of ether and a spray a short burst of it into the breather area near the carburetor, if the mower starts up and then stalls out, then you may need to get your carburetor serviced.

Toro Electric Start Problem


Remove spark plug and observe condition. Fouled with oil, bad motor. With plug removed pull rope several times to blow out cylinder. Spray WD40 in spark plug hole, pull rope several times see if oil blows out. Spray a lot of starter fluid in spark plug hole, replace plug. Spray starter fluid in air cleaner area of carb, try to start. Replace spark plug, try to start. Ensure oil is full, all mowers have a low oil sensor now. 30w oil. Always use Stabile in gas.

"Is this a design flaw by Toro?" (sic) Well, it indeed maybe, it definitely, isn't helping the situation. Here's what to do, get some Mesh, and fasten it across the opening, this will stop most things from gaining egress, and protect what is behind, If that's not sufficient, then perhaps a Plastic,sheet (perhaps if required some holes in it). fastened, across the aperture, will work. In any case I have no doubt, you have the idea of what to do to remedy this situation.

6.5 toro walk behind self propell b&s engine. self propel does not work


Try adjusting your self propel cable. A slight extension of the cable (1/4 inch) will double speed, so do a little at a time. Take the back guard off and clean debris 2 or 3 screws and it is just a cover so nothing will pop out unless that is your real problem. You should have grease fittings behind rear wheels so squirt 2 times with grease gun in each wheel and 1 squirt every 3rd mow.
