Toro Recycler with Techumseh enging will not start

It is 3 years old, 6.5 hp, manual start. Not a 2 pull performer. Spark plug is wet with gasoline. Has compression, gas, and spark. I am at 6700 feet elevation. Perhaps I need smaller carb jets? Also, I have NEVER had good results with Champion spark plugs. This will be my first try to resolve the problem. I only use the mower 2 or 3 times a year. Gas is fresh.

Make sure it can breath. Check the airfilter element. If its oil soaked replace it. Sounds like this engine cannot breath. This engine is set ,there are not jets to replace. Champion Plugs are not the problem FIRE IS FIRE . Fresh Gas if it aint less than 30 days old it aint fresh. Todays designer fuel goes stale quickly.

Toro recycler self propelled 6.5hp, 22" (gts)


Hi steve16092...
You may have MAJOR damage to your motor because of overfilling the oil.
Sometimes you can bend or break a piston rod when the engine is overfilled.
Meanwhile you can check a few other things.
Take your plug out and ground it against the head of the engine with the spark wire attached to it.
You should get a bright blue spark, if not then check your ignition module, it may be faulty.
If you have spark, then try putting a little bit of lighter fluid/or gasoline in the cylinder and reinstall the plug and try to crank it...if it cranks, then you may need to clean/rebuild your carburetor.
Please take time to rate me

I have a Toro recycler approx 2 years old. No spark, cleaned flywheel and magneto and its getting gas. Has the primer button on the side for starting. Please help. No key start.


Check to see if there is a wire off under the shroud that will run to the magneto. May have a hole rubbed in it allowing a short. The magneto should not be bad being only 2 years old, but it's possible.

If you have spark and gas, it should start. The plug shouldn't be wet with gas, adjust the carbuerator fuel flow screw to reduce fuel to the engine. Use full choke to get it started

Toro recycler will start until primed gas is consumed.


I had similar problem and cleaned the spark plug and that seemed to have worked, but I think that may be a temporary fix because the engine still seems to be running unevenly. I feel that it must be a larger problem with the carb. If anyone can help this novice to adjust the carb or clean both carb and filter, or offer other solutions I would appreciate your assistance.
