Question about Toro Lawn Mower With Toro Power Tools

2 Answers

Brand new mower. I can empty the bag and restart it successfully 6 to 8 times. After that, I pull the cord and get nothing. If I leave it sit for an hour or more it will usually start again. There is no manual choke or bulb on this new model. Pulled the plug to check for any signs of "fouling" and saw nothing. After 40+ years of lawn mowers, this has been the worst on "out of the box"!

You need to clean out the bowl on the btm of the carb. Use some gas treatment to stableize the gas

GT,
Please see if any ventilators are blocked by something. It seems that the mower get heated up and needs a rest after that. Or may be its HT coil gets heated up and needs some cooling. When it dies out, please check if there is spark coming in the spark plugs. If no then it is the HT coil. Needs replacing and as it must be under warranty, it should be replaced free. If there is spark (blue spark jumping the plug points) then it must be the carb that needs fixing. The air and fuel jets to be adjusted.

Hi I have a brand new Victa Mustang with the Honda GCV160 4 stroke. Hve fuelled up, added oil, turned on fuel tap but it won't start. Any ideas?


Has it been sitting? Has the gas been sitting? I'm sure the carb is all clogged and gummed up with stale gas and dried ethanol. Buy a new carb, GCV160 carbs are like $20 shipped on eBay.

Not getting any spark


Clean the Plug and replace the Seafoam gas with fresh. Althiough the Seafoam is a cleaning agent, it cuts back on the gasolines octane and it can slightly foul plugs.

I have a Troy-Bilt Mower - Model 834. It has a Honda GVC 160cc engine. It is supposed to start after two pulls when cold and did so since I bought it in 2006. But, just recently it takes 6-10 pulls to...


sounds like the throttle cable has slipped on the side of the engine if they dont pull the choke all the way on they wont start too well. one way to find out is take your air cleaner and outer cover off so you can see in the front of the carby the put your throttle on start/choke position the choke butterfly should be closed if not check your cable.

Cannot pull the cord more than 6 inches to start Toro lawn mower.


Hi Patti, If you can not pull the cord more that what you said, try removing the spark plug and see if that makes a difference, if not, leave the spark plug out to prevent accidental starting, raise up the front of the mower and see if you can turn the blade if not...it only gets worse from there. If you can't turn the blade from under the mower, the engine is more that likely seized up, sorry
