Question about Garden

1 Answer

Toro 6.5 hp (B&S) front self propelled lawn mower. Just over three years old. Has been running great. Changed the plug last summer. About two weeks ago, it wouldn't start. Pulled the plug, cleaned it with a wire brush (seemed a bit oily to me) put a little fresh gas on the plug and it still wouldn't start. Thought maybe I had flooded it. Let it sit for quite a while and it still wouldn't start. The pull cord won't go back in all the way unless I ''coach'' it with short tugs. Just doesn't seem to want to fire. Once in a while it will ''tease'' me like it is going to fire but it won't. I will go get a new plug and try that. Any ideas?

I have a toro self propelled rear wheel drive mower, I changed the belt and now it won't let me pull the mower backwards. The self propelled works great.


If the new belt is not the same length as the old one it will cause it the not release properly. Even one eighth of an inch too short.

Toro timemaster is 3+ years old and doesn't self propel when you push the handle forward any longer.


Either the transmission is shot or the gears on the wheels that turn have been worn away;. They are plastic and do not last long nor take much abuse.

Have a self-starting, self propelled toro lawn mower about 5 years old, I ran it out of gas by accident & now it won't start


It seems to be an obstruction in your fuel delivery system. Get a can of ether and a spray a short burst of it into the breather area near the carburetor, if the mower starts up and then stalls out, then you may need to get your carburetor serviced.

White smoke and blade won't engage


Sounds like a low compression problem. The piston rings have most likely failed and oil is seeping past them and burning, thus the white smoke. An engine needs three things to run...Spark, Compression, and Fuel. Just take the mower back as it is still probably under warranty. Mike. Rate 100% please.

Toro Personal Pace self propel problem.


Your self-propel is probably belt driven. Belts can make an awfully lot of noise when unhappy. Possible it has rolled over and is running on the wrong side of the belt or is worn and just needs replaced. Hope this helps.,
