Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools

1 Answer

Mower won't start.

The mower started fine last time. I ran out of gas, now it won't start. When I pull the cable, it sticks about half way and snaps back really hard. Any ideas?

Yardpro mower wont start


If you left fuel in your machine for any amount of time I would consider a carb cleaning. Did you hit anything last time you mowed?
If so you may have sheared your flywheel key which times your engine. This will also cause a no start condition

Mower Hard Start/Not Cranking Up


Hard to start could mean a lot of things. Has the amount of pull required changed? IF it has then it might be something related to increased friction on the crankshaft. You either have spark or you don't. If you do then of course you need to change the gas first.

Model 917.370410 won't start


Sounds to me like this model is a POS. I also have this same model, purchased last August have used only 5 or 6 times , has the same symptoms: hard pull, puff of smoke, won't run , etc. Even brought this to an authorized dealer to get it to run, but then it only ran a couple more times, dead again. Does anyone know of any recalls fro this lemon? I can appreciate everyone troubleshooting , but you shouldn't have to tear apart a 5 month old lawnmower which will only result in your warranty being voided.

Cord won't pull more than a few inches on new mower. Seems locked up. I've only ran it once.


Ensure the cable for the dead man switch is not kinked. Follow the cable from the handle to the engine. There are 2 bolts that mount the dead mans switch to the engine , remove bolts, remove dead mans switch from engine, let hang, try starting. If starting, clean dead man contacts and reinstall. You may have to remove recoil rope assembly and engine cove to get to dead mans switch.

John Deere LA110 riding mower has gas in the oil


Try stripping it down and having alook sounds like the piston ring has snapped and is pumping gas into the oil that would explain why the oil is coming out the the exhaust the black smoke is just oil burning up ou also might want to clean the carb alittle too.

Poulan 550 Series push mower won't pull start


Hmmmm,,and the plot thickens. Without seeing the unit, i would have to think that when you pull the engine control cable bar, its not releasing the brake that sits against the flywheel. These cables do stretch. Pull the engine cover and you will see the brake against the flywheel. Pull the engine control handle and watch and see if brake is releasing. If its not, replace the cable.
That would be my bet. I hope this is of some help.

The last time I used the mower, it was running fine then cut off while I was mowing. I haven't been able to get it restarted. I changed the spark plug, filled the gas tank and added oil. It still will not...


Maybe the ignition module is gone bad. It helps fire the spark plug to make the motor to run. Also if it has a stop cable on it make sure the cable pulls back far enough to pull the flywheel brake off the flywheel.
If your mower was running then quit, it sounds like the ignition module bad.

Mower ran fine a couple days ago. Went to start


Remove the plug, pull the rope several times. Wait about 30 minutes. Put the plug back in. Try again.

Choke off? Use sparingly if at all. If you have a primer button, only press it 5 or 6 times.

Is your plug in good contition? It may need a replacement. Make sure you get the correct plug.

Let me know how this works out.
