SOURCE: toro recycler will start until primed gas is consumed.

I had similar problem and cleaned the spark plug and that seemed to have worked, but I think that may be a temporary fix because the engine still seems to be running unevenly. I feel that it must be a larger problem with the carb. If anyone can help this novice to adjust the carb or clean both carb and filter, or offer other solutions I would appreciate your assistance.

SOURCE: toro recycler will run until primed gas is consumed.

The problem is that the gas that sat in the carb all winter glazed it over and gummed it up. Begin by going to any auto parts store, like an aiutozone, and getting a bottle of carb. cleaner. Seafoam is one I use. Add it to your gas, one ounce per gallon of gas. Also, pick up a can of engine starting spray.

Remove the air filter and spray the engine starting spray into the air intake. Pull start the engine and give it additional squirts of engine starting spray until it runs smoothly.

Try taking the back wheels off and lubricating the joint cogs and wheels with ,say, 3 in 1 oil . The dealer recommended doing this once every couple of years as preventative maintenance when I bought mine , and it has solved sticking problems for me .

I have a Toro 8526 snowblower. Pull cord drags in cold weather- I have to use electric start-once started and warmed up, pull cord works fine-is this condensation you think?


Sounds like your recoil starter is dry. when it's cold it makes it a lot worse. I would shoot a little oil into the recoil. Even try a shot of WD40 and if that works use an oil can to shoot oil into all the moving parts

Replace the starter rope


you have to remove the recoil from the engine. you will see where the previous rope was tied off. remove old rope and turn spring assembly until tight then back off 1 complete turn. after tying your rope, put through the passages until it comes out the housing hole pull rope all the way through and tug on it to make sure that your knot stays. holding the rope let it recoil in slowly. pull on rope a few times to make sure action is smooth. install handle and adjust rope to proper length

Toro snowblower troubleshooting


FOLLOW this steps and fix it. Merry Christmas

Spark Plug

Every chainsaw relies on a spark plug to ignite the air-fuel mixture for proper combustion. Over time the electrode on the spark plug will burn away and the engine does not start. If the engine does not start, remove and inspect the spark plug. If there is any doubt that the plug is working properly replace it.

Carburetor

If the chainsaw won't start, the carburetor might be clogged or have bad fuel in the float bowl. If old fuel was left in the chainsaw for a long time some of the volatile ingredients may have evaporated, leaving a thicker, stickier product that is more like varnish or shellac. This sticky fuel can clog up the small jets and ports in the carburetor and it can be difficult to burn making it hard to start the engine. The only solution is to drain the old fuel from the float bowl and thoroughly clean the carburetor with carburetor cleaner. If that isn't effective, replace the entire carburetor.

On - Off Switch

Chainsaws are equipped with an on/off switch. If the chainsaw does not start, this switch might be defective. Check the switch for continuity. In the on position the switch should have continuity.

Safety Switch

If the chainsaw does no start, the safety switch - or throttle control switch - might be defective. If the switch isn't engaging with the throttle it won't provide enough fuel to the engine and the engine does not start.

Ignition Coil

If the chainsaw engine does not start the spark plug may not be getting voltage. Power to the spark plug is provided by the ignition coil. The ignition coil is mounted next to the flywheel. As the flywheel spins an electrical current is induced by the ignition coil. If the ignition coil is defective it will need to be replaced, it is not serviceable.

Rewind Spring

The recoil starter assembly has a rewind spring which spins the pulley backward to rewind the starter rope. If the rewind assembly is broken the rope will not rewind and the engine does not start.

Recoil Starter

If pulling the recoil starter assembly handle doesn't engage with the engine and the engine does not start. Repair or replace the recoil starter assembly.

Recoil Starter Pulley

The recoil starter pulley winds up the starter rope when not in use. If the recoil starter pulley is broken or stuck it may not rewind the rope and the engine does not start.

Toro Electric Start Problem


Remove spark plug and observe condition. Fouled with oil, bad motor. With plug removed pull rope several times to blow out cylinder. Spray WD40 in spark plug hole, pull rope several times see if oil blows out. Spray a lot of starter fluid in spark plug hole, replace plug. Spray starter fluid in air cleaner area of carb, try to start. Replace spark plug, try to start. Ensure oil is full, all mowers have a low oil sensor now. 30w oil. Always use Stabile in gas.

Its basically the same....best bet is to just buy the new pull start mechanism...they are pretty cheap, and they go bad on those units all the time.

I HAVE TORO SNOW BLW. MO.# 38195 CCR 1000C 3 H.P. TRIED STARTING WITH ELECTRIC STARTER SEVERAL TIMES DID NOT START AND NOW THE ELECTRIC STARTER WILL NOT WORK WHAT HAPPENED


Some have a circuit breaker that cuts out when too much current used when trying to start too much. Usually when it cools, will kick back in. Have you tried disconnecting battery temporarily, if just letting it sit doesn't do it? PS. Sometimes a little shot of WD-40 into carburetor will help start it if it's been sitting quite a while.

Doesn,t engage with engine


sounds like the dogs and or springs are worn.When you had the cover off the machine did you check that the dogs would freely move out when the rope was pulled? They some times stick and will not engage.

It sounds like the starter drive may be jammed. It should not be engaged unless you are using the starter motor. Take the spark plug wire off, put on heavy leather gloves, and try turning the blade by hand to dislodge the starter drive. If it does dislodge, plug the spark plug wire back up and try the pull start again.
