Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools

1 Answer

Chokes off immediately after starting

I have a little older model Recycler, which I've never had a problem with before. This time around, I had to "overprime" it to get it start...and then it cuts off after a few seconds. I replaced the air filter, and it has plenty of gas. I'm certain I changed the oil less than a year ago, but I'm considering doing it again. Anyone else have this problem, or know if it's something besides the oil?

Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:

You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner.Makesure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to see daylight through it.)

Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152),to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

If you need further assistance on:
1. Fuel line replacement or
2. Carburetor kit replacement

Just let me know.

How to fix stuck pull cord of a 22 inch Toro Recycler lawn mower


Is the engine seized?. Try turning the blade and if it won't turn then you have a seized engine. If that is ok your recoil has a stuck part possibly something has broken off inside. If it's an older model try shooting WD40 inside the recoil as it could be rusty.

Chokes and Dies when cutting


Adjust the choke or carburetor. In case your chainsaw stalls when the engine is idling, ensure that the choke is set properly. To do so, first try releasing it to adjust it, and then move the plate and tighten all screws once again. To loosen any grit, spray carburetor cleaner spray on the choke's shaft. The carburetor may also need to be adjusted; consult your owner's manual which will guide you on resetting the idle mix screw.

What are the best chokes to use for a beginner on clay pigeon shooting?


To increase your odds of hitting targets - use the most "open" choke that will maintain good density at the distance you're shooting - exactly the same as most experienced shooters do... Skeet choke for shooting Skeet, Mod to Full for Trap, Cyl to Light Mod will handle 95% of shots on the sporting clays courses around here.

To increase your skill - occasionally use your full choke for everything until you learn proper gun mount, swing, and lead and follow through. When you start getting frustrated, switch back to the open chokes to get a little positive feedback on some close targets, then move back to the full choke.

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.

Seems to blow cold air at times when the engine has been running long enough to be hot and lately its been slow to start and sometimes chokes out immediately after starting


Re: blowing cold - I'd flush cooling system and replace thermostat. Re: hard start - when was last healthy tune up? Plugs, wires, all filters including FUEL FILTER and run a good fuel cleaner through it.

Where is the model number on the frame of a toro recycler lawn mower?


Toro model plates are white stickers with black lettering. On rear bagging models it is usually under the rear bag flap to the left of the discharge area. On side bag and commercial type units it is frequently on the underside of the plate that is just below where you hold the handle while mowing. On older recycler mowers it was on top of the left rear portion of the deck and usually fell off before the mower was very old.
Good luck!

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.
