Clean the carb,and check flow of fuel to carb,add a fuel filter if possible...You need to do a small servicing on it,a proper one to get it back as normal..Put the carb soaked in thinner overnight and make sure all plastic bits are removed as else it will melt.Also check the valve,just after the carb is it's a 2 stroke( if it has one, as some has not).This should solve this problem and get it back to normal.

How do i get my toro gts-5 550 lawn mower to keep running?


The problem is likely varnish buildup in the carb. Add PAINT THINNER ( yes, I meant to say that !) to the gas. Use 1.5 ounces each of Xylol ( Xylel) and Acetone per 10 gallons of gas ( 5 gal. can will use 3/4 ounce each ).Drain gas tank and carb float bowl. Add fresh gas mixed with thinners. Remove air cleaner element and use quick starting fluid with upper cylinder lubricant to start mower, and keep it running with SHORT bursts of starting fluid until it will run on its own. You may also need to replace or clean air filter if it is old or dirty. continue procedure for 5 minutes or so. Remember to run Sta-bil fuel stabilizer through the system before you shut down for the season, as this will prevent the varnish build up.
I've been using thinner in all of my engines ( gas, pre mix, and diesel ) for a few years with no bad side effects. I've ridden over 15,000 miles on my motorcycle - getting better mileage and power, and not having to buy premium gas either.
Hope this helps!!

My mower starts and runs until the engine get hot.


the only way to test i think is with a known good coil or resistance check. also possible you need to check valve clearances

Mower starts then it smokes


If you spilled any oil on the engine, it will smoke for a few good minutes until it burns off.

Or, you may want to check the air breather. It may be dirty.

I have a toro-recycler. it is about four years old and has always run great-until now..it shut off in the middle of the yard and wont re-start. i put in fresh gas/sea-foam, new plug, and air cleaner..it is...


It sounds as if the gas cap may be clogged. It must be able to breathe so that the carburetor gets the proper gas flow. Does it run for about 10-15 minutes? If so, this is more than likely your problem.

Toro 2 stroke lawn mower won't start


Remove the Carb Bowl and on the bottom of the bowl clean the center of crust gas....

It blocks the gas from getting from the bowl to the inside of the carb.

Caused when gas dry's up in the bowl leaving deposits behind plugging up the works.
