First thing to do is change the spark plug. If you still don't get spark then remove the stop wire from the coil and see if you get spark. If still no spark, replace the plug wire and coil. Click on the link below to read more

Why does motor try to stall after cutting for 30 or more minutes? Acts like it is running out of gas but has full tank.

check your gas cap
then check the fuel lines, if they are soft or spongy, replace
then check for spark
in this order

Engine wont start

Make sure wire from battery to starter is connected and there are no problems with wire ( I.e. no missing insulation, cuts and connection to starter is secure.) Also starter may be bad.

Toro 4200 time cutter stalls when the handles are pulled in

I believe the timecutter has a safety switch that only allows the unit to start with handles in the out position, then you need to be on the seat to be able to pull handles in without stalling engine. Have you tried checking the seat switch? It sounds like one of your safety switches isn't working. Either the seat switch or the handle switches. That's where I would look first. Good luck!

Starts, runs and when handles are in gaged moves forward then stops and kills the engine.

Sounds like a failsafe switch or sensor is causing this issue. I would have the seat switch checked to see if it is causing the cut off issue.

Toro Timecutter 14.38Z Model 74301 Briggs & Stratton Engine Model 280H07-0166-E1 Has NIKKI carb Starts & runs for ~ 15 minutes then stops. Will restart after 5 minutes rest and run...

Recheck spark when the unit cuts out. I am gonna guess you spent a lto of money chasing a bad coil! When a coil starts to go bad they become temperature sensitive. Time does the rest!

Toro str will not start, motor spins but will not fire

Ensure clean fuel. Always use Stabile in fuel. Follow fuel line from fuel tan to carb, ensure no leaks. Remove carb fuel bowl to check float operation. Have pliers to crimp line or use fuel shut off valve. Remove carb float bowl and clean. Float should hang down freely gas should flow. Push float up gas should cut off. Replace spark plug, ensure plug wire snaps on tight. Clean or replace air filter. Ensure oil is full, 30w oil. All mowers have low oil shutoff.
