Check the vent hole in the gas cap. A partial vacuum in the tank will cause this.

Dont know if this is the same problem but it may help. I've recently bought a used Toro 6.5 recycler and have cut the lawn 3 times with it. This third time it began to stall out on me. If I hit the primer button several times it would start up but then die again. I thought I'd have to pull the carb and clean it, ut after looking at a few problem listings online I realized it was probably just some trash in the needle valve. I managed to get it running again by first pushing the primer pump 3-5 times, then pulling the cord to crank it, then while holding the contact bar in place with one hand to keep it running I reached down and pumped the prime button a few times before it cut out again- after one or two tries it apparently flushed the trash out and it ran fine again. Had the same problem later and fixed it the exact same way, then went on to finish the yard.

    Thank You, VFM-mower. I read your solution, went out and tried it on my mower which was having the same problem, fixed it the first try. Like you said to do, I primed it, held on to the handle, primed it again before it chugged out, then finished mowing the lawn. Ran perfect.

Starts, then stalls after 10 min


Make sure the fuel filler cap breather hole is clear if its blocked it will create a vacuum in the tank which prevents the fuel flowing forward. Also check out the links below

Toro personal pace mower will not stay started?


If ir starts and runs for only a few seconds it's a dirty carb/bad gas. Drain the fuel system and use FRESH gas; change out your fuel supply monthly to avoid "phase separation" issues. If it runs for several minutes and then dies it is possibly a sticking valve. Do a compression check cold and after it stalls to confirm. Hope this helps

Starts and runs great(when engine is cold).\r\nafter 15 mins the engine dies. will start up again, but will only run about 5 sec. and then dies. toro super recycler 5.5 hp GTS5


I would check the gas cap. If the gas cap is plugged or pieces missing from inside it will not allow air into the tank and the fuel will not flow properly to the carburetor. Just loosen the cap and try it, if it does not change check for dirt in the fuel line.

I have a Toro Super Recycler GTS 6.5 HP. Upon starting the mower white smoke comes out of the exhaust (silver housing) on the front. The smoke stops after about 2 minutes of running. Any ideas??


Oil level too high? *(check oil level with dipstick fully screwed down!)

or

Leaking valve guide *(rare.)

Cylinder walls not sealing well and oil leaking past rings. *(less rare...nothing you really can do about....just getting used up)

I would change the oil and be very careful to fill only within the full range.
Then, run the unit once to clear the muffler out.

Good luck and be careful!

Your carburetor is definately dirty or it needs new gaskets, screen, and needle valve( carb. kit). Is this something that you think you might want to attempt? It really isn't that difficult. Can be done in about an hour. If so, let me know and I can give you a few tips.
