Check and clean your gas tank. If still a problem there might be dirt in the carb.

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 the 6.5 hp self propelled model, It starts fine and runs strong for aprox 5 min then dies, seems to die when it gets hot possibly, the die time is always the same aprox 5 min. Once it dies it will...


I don;t know what engine is on your mower but if it has the self contained electronic ignition coil I have seen happen on several engines. It would run good for several min. then the spark just stops . And it will not spark again until it sets and cools . Just make sure it is the ignition that is not working.

Briggs stratton,16 H>P> runs smooth 'til mower is engaged.


Is the choke staying on perhaps? check spark and plug check airflow, get compression test maybe the oil/compression rings giving way... sounds like its getting hot and increasing fuel flow for some reason??? perhaps clean carb with some cleaner while running (remove air cleaner) spray directly into carby while running run at full throttle as you spray it will try and die ... relax on the spraying and see how it goes.. check air cleaner for blockages as the same time :) hope you get it working!

Engine shutoff on hot days after 45 minutes.


it sounds like the electronic ignition system(under the flywheel) is going bad,that would cause the mower to shut down when it's hot. if you take it back to the repair shop ask them to replace it and it'll be good as new.. Good Luck

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.

Starts runs min. or two then stops....


Go to toro.com then click customer care, then click manuals and parts. Type in model no. and download the owners manual. This should get you the spark and flywheel gap. Probably still something in the carb. Some orifices are very hard to find and to clean but they must be clean. Also check for dirt dopper nest in the muffler.
