Question about Toro Garden
It sounds like the caarb floats have varnish (a natural byproduct of cheap gas) on them. This varnish will not allow the floats to slide up and down in their slides. Simply removing the bowl on the bottom of the carb (near the air filter)will show you the slides and float. With a clean rag wipe the brown varnish off the slides. drain gas into a can before you remove carb parts, otherwise it will drain onto the mower deck. after replacing all the parts you may have to re adjust the carb needles for air and gas mixture. here is a link to where to find the diagrams.
First thing I would do is see if the engine rotates. Remove the spark plug and see if you can spin the engine. If so, then it should be fine. If not, make sure there is not something with the drive system, blade, or starter that is binding and preventing the engine from rotating. Next repair the starter, the pull string starter.
99% of the engine problems today are caused by dirty carburetors. Today's carbs are manufactured with tight tolerances to meet EPA emmission standards...just a drop of water or a spec of grass in the carb can cause issues. Cleaning the carb with compressed air from an air compressor and spray type carb cleaner usually helps in this types of problem.Also check the start pull cord.Check if the oil level is low.Also check if any blockage in air filter. Clean every thing and re-check. This unit does not have an oil plug on the bottom of the engine, so it needs to be tipped on its side. This is best done when the fuel tank is nearly empty, so gas does not leak out when it is tipped over.The correct oil for your toro is SAE-30W.The air filter should be changed every year. The replacement filter is a Tecumseh 36905, which I found at both Lowes and Home Depot. Also to get required parts and manuals and parts diagram of your toro you can get it from the link below.Click the link. https://homeownersolutions.toro.com/portal/server.pt/community/solutions_home/222).
