Pull the gas line of the carbureator and drain the line. Crank the mower for awhile to get all that bad gas out of the line and bowl, then re-install the line and continue to crank it over. That should work, otherwise, you may need some cleaning performed. One thing you can do once you get ready to start it with clean gas, remover air breather, take a small rag slightly soaked in gas and momentarilly hold it over the air intake of the carb when you crank it over. That usually gets it going and it might be fine after that. You just have to get that bad gas completely out of the system.

Wont start,pops, slow-low idle if at all.


Hello Donald,

Always make sure to disconnect the spark lead BEFORE handling mowers... in EVERY manner.

Simply turning the blade can start them (when they are feeling good).

The single biggest trouble with starting mowers is OLD, TIRED fuel.

If your gas is FRESH skip to the double asterisk ** below.

Disconnect the spark lead... remove the gas cap and turn the mower over and drain ALL the gas out of the tank into an old oil pan (to transfer to recycling container... for proper disposal... of course),

Re-connect the spark lead.

Put in your FRESH (newly purchased) gas... give the primer bulb (if equipped) a couple of pushes ... set the choke only until the engine coughs... the next crank it will start and run well...

**If it does not check for splits or cracks in the fuel lines... the fact that you are discussing idle at all gives your SPARK a clean bill of health.

Good luck and remember to watch out for that blade

Won't start by using primer ,have to use starting fluid


could be a number if things, dirty carb, old gas, dirty coil contacts, low combustion chamber pressure, (bad rings), bad spark plug. First try replacing the spark plug and if it is old gas remove and replace with fresh. if that doesn't do it then the carb needs to be removed, cleaned and blown out thoroughly with an air compressor. reassemble and reinstall. next is to remove the recoil housing and clean the coil contacts. the coil is attached to the spark plug wire. remove and with some old gas or wd-40 and a wire brush, remove dirt and rust from contacts as well as magnet on the flywheel. be sure to leave the proper gap between the coil and flywheel when you replace the coil. If you can pull the recoil with your forefinger and thumb, chances are your machine is toast and needs a ring job. good luck

Starving for fuel runs fine on starting fluid


Make sure gas tank and gas line isn't plugged. Also, make sure the gas itself is good, might have water in it.

TORO TIME CUTTER SS4235,NOT STARTING,NO ELECTRCAL POWER TO SWITCH


Check wiring for ground. Ensure battery is fully charged or replace. Replace spark plug. Clean or replace air filter. check oil level, all mowers have a low oil start cutoff. Bad gas? Flush out fuel tank by removing gas line, flush fresh gas thru. Reattach gas line, fill with fresh gas, always use Stabile in gas! Check fuel line for cracks and secure connection to carb. Battery should read 12.8 volts or higher. .

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.
