SOURCE: toro mower quick running after

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.

6.5 toro self propel.....new plug and new gas,,,turns over but then shuts down...replaced both neoprene hoses


Carburetor Cleaning TUNE UP of Toro 6 5HP Lawnmower with Tecumseh Engine

The above link will provide a video on how to clean the carb on the 6.5 hp mower. Before you go to that length, try putting some carb cleaner in the fuel tank and see if that corrects the problem. Also, as the video shows, make sure the spark plug is getting a good spark. If the spark is weak , the fly wheel may be rusted, ot the magneto is bad.

Recheck spark when the unit cuts out. I am gonna guess you spent a lto of money chasing a bad coil! When a coil starts to go bad they become temperature sensitive. Time does the rest!

Why wouldn't fuel be getting to the spark plug?; could primer bulb have crack in it if its an old mower (Model #20017)?


If your purge bulb has a crack then gas will leak from it. The Toros are famous for one thing. That little brass 1/2" main jet bolt on the bottom of the carb has a tiny hole right at the top of the threads that gets plugged up because it's so tiny (and ethanol gas sucks) you can't even see it (with my eyes). That needs to be cleaned with a needle or very very very thin piece of wire. My guess is that your whole carb needs a good cleaning and if you're not familiar with carbs, then have a pro do it for about $35 USD. Most of the Toro / Tecumseh's I work on run like new after I go thru the carb on them and it'll be worth your while to have a good carb cleaning done on it. Hope this helps and best of luck to you.

check your oil is it up to full, then I would check to see if you have compresson, pull your plug and roll over and feel with finger ,but don't touch spark plug wire or you will light up! next I would check for spark, then for fuel, make sure the carb is getting fuel,,,check your hoses and fuel cap and clean your carb and needle/seat and make sure gas will run through the fuel line. Also you could have sheared a flywheel key

the choke out you are talking about could of been a lean condition and smoked the eng rings
Good Luck compresson test should tell all 2StrokeJim

Lawnmower starts when pushing primer button but cuts out right after


1).You need to remove the fuel bowl from the bottom of the carb. and clean it. There is prob. some dried up crusty fuel in the bottom and it will stop up the jets in the carb. 2). If you can remove the carb. and run small wire in the jets.

Toro 6.5 Tecumseh Recycler won't stay running


I have the same mower and problem. Found out the issue was the carburetor. Pull the Carb and do a quick cleaning. Order the replacement kit prior to working on. My bowl o-ring was shot and I couldn't get a seal after cleaning it out.

Mower will not stay running


You have a problem in the fuel system. First start by checking fuel lines,filter,vacum fuel pump.If this checks out,remove carb. and clean. Check for water and trash in bowl of carb. or tank. This sould solve your problem.

Toro personal pace mower 5 yrs old only runs 10-15 seconds.


Was gasoline left in the tank during off season? Sometimes gas will break down and clog the jets in the carb. The priming bypasses the carb so when you put fuel in by pumping the bulb it runs, but dies becasue no additional fuel is coming through the carb after the primed fuel is burned off. Sounds like you need to clean the jets in the carb and in the future, use Stabil in gasoline to keep it from breaking down.
