Not getting gas to carb. changed fuel pump, bypassed filter. hold gas line below tank and fuel comes out. but not being sucked through pump it appears. help

It has a pressure differential fuel pump, just put a little fuel in the carb. and it should start it may stall but do it 1 more time and then it will stay running as it uses the crank pressure to actuate the fuel pump

Toro mower quick running after 5 minutes - repair shop said cleaned carb jets, air filter, plug - same thing next time I ran it - repair shop then said it was probably the fuel cap vent. Just run it for...

Hi and welcome to FixYa. First off having worked in lawn mower shops personally you should take your mower back to the shop you had it repaired in. What you have is what we in the biz call a repeat disrepancy. Most likely there is a fuel supply problem if the jects have been cleaned. The problem can be:

1. Debris in the bottom of the fuel tank.
2. Clogged fuel filter
3. Float needle and seat is not opening fully or there is debris in the needle seat.
4. Clogged or pinched fuel supply line.

That is about it but I am telling you the repair shop owes you a free labor fix for this. You may have to purchase a needle and seat for around $5 - $6.00 and or the cost of a new fuel filter but, they certainly should eat the labor.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

Simplicity Broadmoor only runs for a minute or two and then quits

Check both the air and fuel filters. Either being clogged would give this situation. It could also be dirt in the fuel line. Disconnect at both ends and blow them out. If none of the above helps, then the problem is likely in the fuel pump or carburetor and will take some disassembly.

Lt 1045 runs 20-minutes then stalls and everthing

It could very well be something simple. There are Oil level sensors that are pretty fussy. What can happen is just the slightest drop in oil level can cause the oil level switch to kill the ignition. If there is a safety relay connected in the oil level switch it can prevent starter use also.

On of the tings I would start looking for is the condition of the battery cables. (both ends) Check for a loose ground or a loose starter connection.


Seat safety switches have been known to cause the problem you describe. On newer model riding mowers there is a switch on the seat that there must be someone sitting onthe seat for there to be any power to anything on the mower.

Check the seat switch wiring and connectors. You could have a loose connection on your seat switch that is simulating no one in the seat even though there is an operator.

AThat is it for now.. give the above a shot and if the problem persists just respond here and we can continue troubleshooting.
