Motor mower wont start


By tipping a 4 cycle motor on a lawn mower or any equipment, you have all the oil and gas running into the combustion chamber and sometimes the oil and WATER will get into the tank. It will need too have the spark plug removed, the engine turned over with the starter to blow the oill, gas, and water out of the cylinder(s), the plug should be either dried and gap reset, and the gas tank drained and FRESH gas put in it. Replace the spark plug prime with just a few drops of gasoline in the carburetor throat and restart and let run to dry evrything. NOTE: An oil change is recommended, too!!

My 418 ZE Toro snowblower won't start either manually or electrically. I need to empty the gas. How do I do that?


Easiest way is to pull the fuel line from the carburetor.
If you have not started it since last year and had the gas sitting in there. You need to clean the carburetor too.

Toro snowblower wont start. seems like the fuel isnt getting into carb.how and what can i do


Reference your toro snow blower. does it start and run for a few swconds then die. if so It may sound crazy but loosen the gas cap just a bit. I had the same issue with my snow blower and a friend gave me the solution. It works great now.

Toro GTS 20332 (bought it 12 months ago) won't run


I believe that Toro Guarantees to start 1 Pull, was gas left in it all winter?, If so this is'nt covered under warranty, cause gas is to be ran out or dumped out at end of season this will prevent any gumming up of carb . did you completely disassemble carb? does it have a primer on it, those gskts need replacing, clean out the jet in bottum of float bowl,small holes,sometimes missed and remove and check your needle/seat to make sure that when float drops gas runs out then lift float up and gas should stop. hope this helped you,another thing spray carb cleaner in carb and pull over and see if it will start that way enough to keep running with choke to see if it will **** gas into it

I have a Toro 20332 that stopped running after 20 minutes and would not restart. Tried several days later and it would start for a few seconds and stop again. Took it to the Tor dealer twice last year...


Just take off your carb and give it a good cleaning. Be careful and watch how everything comes apart so you can put it back together with little or no trouble.

Toro lawnmower appears flooded and won't start.


Actually all you have to do is take out the spark plug and pull the engine through several times. What has happened is the intake valve was open when you tipped the motor so when the fuel ran out of the carb into the engine it saturated the spark plug. You may have to by another spark plug to get it started or dry yours out very well. The main thing is to make sure that most of the liquid gas has exited the cylinder.

One more thing.... the float needle may have tilted a bit in the seat as a result of haging it tipped on its side. This is going to sound a bit strange BUT... grasp the handle and alternately bang the front and rear wheels on the ground a couple of times by lifting the back of the mower with the handle about 2 inches and drop it. Do the same by pressing down on the handle for the front tires. (2 inches and drop)
IT WORKS!

This should get you going. IF not just respond here and we can continue troubleshooting.
