SOURCE: Toro Lawn Mower Won't Start

this is a very common problem with these toro mowers. the needle valve in the bowl of the carb. is plugged up with dirt or varnish from the fuel. just under the primer bulb there is the carb bowl. it has a nut under it that holds it on remove the bowl and make sure fuel flows constantly while the bowl is off. push up on the float to stop the gas flow. this could be messy and dangerous. careful with the gas. its flammable. best solution is to remove the carb and soak it overnight in a parts cleaner like gunk. caution small parts inside. this happins every year on mine no matter what i do. seems like the orifice is so small it clogs easily. good luck

SOURCE: Toro walk behind model 20025 Gas running through the carburetor

Carb. float must be stuck open. First if you have no fuel in the tank it must all be in the crankcase.Drain the oil and refill and also check the carb as the float has to be sticking open. Hope this will help you. Donnyb60

SOURCE: toro 2 stroke lawn mower won't start

Remove the Carb Bowl and on the bottom of the bowl clean the center of crust gas....

It blocks the gas from getting from the bowl to the inside of the carb.

Caused when gas dry's up in the bowl leaving deposits behind plugging up the works.

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.

check your mower for interlock switches that might interupt spark for safety reasons.

A chute switch or something like that. Check your owners manual for troubleshooting.

Unplug the keyswitch and try pull starting to rule out a bad switch.

If it still doesnt have spark you might need a new coil.

The coil is right under the recoil cover and are fairly cheap.

A set of hand tools and $30-50 for the part should do it.

Good luck and be careful.

P have a Toro riding mower and found that when I drained the oil it appeared to have gas in it. Last season near the end of the year it would blow a black liquid out the exhaust when it started.


It seems the carburetor is flooding and overflowing into the crankcase. This is a common problem. Need to determine what type of carb. you have: Walbro or Nikki to suggest a fix. Some simply put an in-line shut off valve between the tank and the carb. and turn the fuel "off" when they are not using the mower. You will need to change the oil and oil filter (if you have one). Hope this helps.

My gts Toro mower Model 20070 will not start with the electric start. If you reposition the blade you can then give it an extemely hard pull it will start. How can I make it easier to start so I can use...


Try this; take the air cleaner element out and squirt some light oil (like WD40) into the carb and immediately try the starter, if the engine starts right up it likely needs new rings.

I have to prime the toro mower every time I empty the bag to get it to start?


  1. what is the model, manufacturer and year of mower?
  2. has any maintenance been performed on this mower?
  3. if no, try replacing the spark plug and air filter (it's possible the spark plug could be fouled and/or the air filter is clogged) be sure to follow the manufacturers recommendations for oil, gas, filters and plugs.
routine maintenance involves:
  1. sharpen/replace blade
  2. oil change
  3. replace air filter
  4. replace spark plug
  5. new gas

Mower will not start,changed plug,new gas,has fire to the plug still will not start,backfires once in a while checked the fues it is ok,it is a lx460 mod# 13AX60RH744, cleaned the points etc,


Replace the air filter. Remove the plug and try to start it. If you don’t smell the gas your problem is fuel. Most have a primer button that needs to be pressed 3 times. Remove the air filter and press the primer button to see if you squirt fuel. If it has no or little smell, continue priming and starting until you have fresh fuel. Replace the filter and plug. Disengage the pto ect ( saftys)before starting. Here is the manual Don’t forget to follow the safty startup list.
