The problem is in your carbeurator. It runs for 10 seconds on the primer fuel only. Your carb. is gummed up and must be either rebuilt or replaced. OR you might get lucky and ungum it by making it run with some starter fluid.

What is wrong with a Toro GTS5 that starts well but dies 5-10 seconds later. I have changed the spark plug, air filter and oil. New gas too. Any suggestions? Thanks.


I had a similar problem. I'll bet I took off the carb. 5 - 6 times and cleaned it with no success. Very fustrating! One time while checking the fuel level I accidently left off the gas cap, I started it and while running I put the gas cap back on and started to mow and about 10 seconds it died. I thought could'nt be! So I loosened the cap, restarted and it kept running. Any way the small vent hole was plugged. Thats my story!. Good luck.

Brand new electric mulching blower/vac : cut out after 10 secs.


Electric motors sometimes have circuit breakers to protect them from overload or overheating. Some reset automatically, some don't. But even if you found and reset a breaker, this shoudn't happen 10 seconds after starting a new unit, unless you sucked a branch into it during those 10 seconds! Take it back to the store for a replacement.

Runs 10 or 20 seconds and simply dies


Hello. I recommend that you install a new spark plug and put some carbeurator cleaner in with your gas. i like a product called seafoam. just follow the directions on the container.

THE ENGINE RUNS FINE FOR 10 SECONDS THEN KIND OF DIES OUT BUT WILL THEN RUN FINE FOR 10 SECONDS AND THEN DIE OUT


Try replacing the in-line fuel filter, the Air Filter and Spark Plugs. Also make sure that you are using the proper start up procedure. In many cases that means using the highest choke setting until the engine tries to start, then going to the next choke setting and so forth until you get to no choke. It is imperative that you let engine run for at least 5 minutes before use to warm up. This will ensure a longer life and consistent running.

Engine keeps flooding out


Recommend completely draining the fuel system. Tank, lines, and carb. Make sure everything is clean and dry. Clean or replace fuel filter. Always try to store it with a full tank of fuel. It is common to get condensation when the weather goes from warm to cold and back.
