Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools
I have a Toro 22 in Recycler Lawn Mower model number 20067. It is also an electric start. My problem that has been going on since I had it is that the wires that slide into the receptacle keep falling out. Even with wires attached the electric start will not do anything. I had this in the dealer for this problem at least three times and when i get it back it seems to be okay. But later it fails again. Once in a while after I play arouind with it, it seems to be okay again. I do not know what is making it okay though. Do you know of anything? thanks.

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

I pull the rope and it seems like it wants to start.It will not start with rope ? are you sure your brake control cable is adjusted right if not it could cause it not to start,you said after you pulled rope and trys to start you used it twice when ?

My son just bought a new Toro self propelled 22" recycler and has had problems on two different occasions. The mower just bogs down to a stop and when he tried to pull the starter cord, it was very VERY difficult to pull. At first I thought the engine had seized up for some reason (no oil?), but we found the problem.
First, disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug (to avoid the engine starting); tip the mower on its side and check very carefully the pulley and transmission belt. In his case, a piece of wood had gotten stuck between the belt and the pulley. Removing it fixed the problem (now he mows a little higher so as not to get so close to any debris). (We did have one further problem after that - the engine would not start - not even fire. After pulling and pulling, checking for gas, and checking that the air filter was cleean, we decided to check if the cylinder was flooded - we removed the spark plug, wiped and dried if off, and replaced it. It started right away.)
This belt 'n pulley arrangement isn't the best idea, if you ask me.

Check the oil ... does it have oil in it?
Disconnect the spark plug, tip the mower up, can you move the blade? If the blade will not move, the motor may be seized.
No oil = ruined motor ...
If the blade will move freely, there is a recoil starter problem.

Testimonial: "Great! You were right on target. All the oil was gone and the engine seized, they got it started for us but it EXPLODED on us the next time we used it. Brand new mower and we DID put oil in it. Go figure."
have you tipped mower over at any stage? oil will be in a/c and cyl/head ...any time you tip mower pull high tension lead off s/plug and tip mower so that spark plug points to the sky...you will need to remove spark plug (suspect it will be full of oil) replace air cleaner....and retop up with correct oil...
