    What is the engine model number on your mower? i.e. Is it a Briggs and Stratton, Honda et al? Honda model numbers are on the base of the engine near the oil filler tube and B&S are on the air shroud. Also ewhn it shut off does it act like it is running out of fuel or that it appears to be instatly losing spark?
    I can help you but need the engine model number as Toro uses at lest 2 different engines on this mower depending on year of manufacture.
    Thanks for choosing FixYa.

There could be a problem with the "dead-man switch" and the wiring to it. When you release the "bail handle" on your mower, you have activated the switch. The wiring to it goes very close to the flywheel and is known to sometimes rub and go bare, thus grounding out the coil. Check the switch and wire from the switch to the coil. Make sure it is insulated (no chafing) and tucked away from the flywheel. Also, make sure the brass bolt that holds the float bowl on the carb has all its holes open as it is the main jet for the carb.Vibrations while running may be getting to the dead-man switch wiring etc.

    The cable from the bail handle to the dead man switch assembly also controls the flywheel brake. It could be out of adjustment and the brake is dragging on the flywheel when it shouldn't be. It works in conjunction with the dead man switch when the bail handle is released upon shutdown.

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.

I have a Toro 22 in Recycler Lawn Mower Model No. 20331 I can't pull the starter cable, it seems locked. My boys were mowing the lawn earlier, some very high grass, and the mower stopped


Hi. It's not locked. The piston has siezed up maybe for lack of oil or sitting too long. It is time to retire it. If your son or daughter or grand kids has some mechanical in them. They can tare it apart and fix it. Good luck.

Toro super recycler mower will not stay running, has fuel and oil and air filter was just replaced


Try replacing the fuel and spark plug. Gas may be bad. Get some fresh from the station not from the can sitting in the garage.
Drain the fuel system and put the fresh gas in.

Good Day.

Toro self propelled 22 inch recycler lawn mower start pull cord is "stuck"


Casey,

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.

Good luck.

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.
