SOURCE: Mower won't start

13 to 15 amps electric or battery operated mower may runs slow when cutting thick grass. also recommended not to cut grass when it's wet & need very sharp blade to do the lawn. may overloading it, cutting grass too thick also draws too much power. check house breaker first.

SOURCE: I have to prime the toro mower every time I empty

  1. what is the model, manufacturer and year of mower?
  2. has any maintenance been performed on this mower?
  3. if no, try replacing the spark plug and air filter (it's possible the spark plug could be fouled and/or the air filter is clogged) be sure to follow the manufacturers recommendations for oil, gas, filters and plugs.
routine maintenance involves:
  1. sharpen/replace blade
  2. oil change
  3. replace air filter
  4. replace spark plug
  5. new gas

SOURCE: first start is excellent when cold, will not restart again warm

It sounds as if your engine may be getting too hot. I suggest that you check under the covers and make sure that all the debris is cleaned out. These are air cooled engines and as such need to be kept relatively clear of debris, especially anywhere there are cooling fins.

Worx mower. I was mowing fine..stopped to change bag.. Wouldn't restart when pushed the key button. handle engaged and it would power move forward. Engine would not start.battery fully charged

sounds like, a valve clearance adjustment problem. starts when cold, looses some power when hot, if turned off or stops, won't restart until cold.

I have a 725 & an 825 series engines on two lawn mowers. They are almost impossible to restart after they have been run & you stop for fuel or to empty the bag. Can you suggest a solution ?

Run a compression test to find out the condition of the piston rings and valves. Low compression on a hot engine indicates either worn piston rings or not enough clod clearance on the valves.

Toro personal pace 20372, starts fine, runs well for 30 or 40 minutes then dies. Starts up again when cooled down just a bit.

Need fuel that is not more than a couple months old

Need a good or clean spark plug

Have no idea how old it is, or how many years
you have used it

Sometimes you have to remove the head & clean the
carbon off the piston & head
That is a tune-up on small equipment

Make sure the air filter is clean

They usually start with the air filter off,but you don't
want to do that all the time

My mower starts fine cold, just a few pulls to get it going, but then when i stop it to empty the bag, it has to sit for like 30 minutes before it will start again. It doesnt seem to be getting overly...

You should check for spark when this happens next time.

Usually this kind of no start problem is related to a heat damaged ignition coil.

If you check for spark and have none you will need to replace the coil.
The good news is they arent too expensive and you can replace it yourself with only simple hand tools and playing card *(yes, a card from a poker deck!).

If you end up replacing the coil you might find that an animal made a nest under your recoil housing too! This is probably what lead to the overheating and failure of the coil. I see it all the time.

Good luck and be careful!

Toro Lawn mower, 22" push mower

It sounds like the small orifice in the fuel bowl is clogged. This could be from dirt or varnish that collect in the gasoline over the winter if you don't empty the tank and run the mover dry before storing. If you are not mechnically inclinded, take it to a dealer and they will clean out the fuel bowl. Easy 5 minuite job.
