Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools

1 Answer

I have a new 2010 Toro 22" Recycler that has the 190cc engine and key start. The mower starts and cuts fine, but after about 5 mins it shuts off and I have to wait about 2 minutes to start it back up. Once re-started, it does the same thing. A neighbor told me to change the spark plug, which I did and it didn't do any good. Please halp!!!!! Thank you. Tim Hall 773/495-6876

The problem is not with the plug. But with the ignition coil. It gets heated up and quits. Starts again when cooled and this cycle continues. Please replace the ignition coil. It is the coil from where the thick lead goes onto the spark plug.

How to fix stuck pull cord of a 22 inch Toro Recycler lawn mower

Is the engine seized?. Try turning the blade and if it won't turn then you have a seized engine. If that is ok your recoil has a stuck part possibly something has broken off inside. If it's an older model try shooting WD40 inside the recoil as it could be rusty.

Hi michael, You have most certainly put in too much oil. Try draining a bit off and then clean the spark plug with some paper towel. Leave the mower level for a few hours and then try it again.

Toro recycler mower w/electric start is leaking oil

Blown oil ring. Rebuild or replace engine. Remove spark plug if oily bad rings. Harbor Freight sells 160cc or 190cc replacement engine, Northern Tool also sells engines. Check for proper bolt pattern mounting. Remove blade and cables to carb and replace engine.

I have the same problem. One time this happened and it restarted after a few hours and worked fine for 5 more cuts over a couple of months time. Now again it quit mid cut of my yard and would not restart. When trying to start it would fire for a few seconds and than shut off again. I wated a week to try it again and now it does nto fire at all. This is about a year old mower with only about 10-15 hours of total use.

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.
