Well Tennis these electric mowers use brushes in their electric moters and they have a tendace to go bad after a few years of heavy use. I would guess you have a nice size yard. The origanal equiptment isn't always the highest quility. You nmay just need new motor brushes and clean the armature. Hope this helps. Farmer Randy From Guthrie

Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, and letting it
run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,
but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you
buy and install a new carburetor repair kit, because the diaphragm will
get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, count the
number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns
they were in/out.
Please do not forget to rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this helped

Continuously stalling and extreme difficulty restarting.

The brass "Bolt" that holds the "cup" on the bottom of your carburetor is also the main fuel metering jet for the engine. Get yourself a can of automotive carb cleaner, the aerosol type that comes with the small red plastic tube on the side of the can. Remove the "Bolt" and "cup". (Tip: tilt the carb side of the mower UP about 45 degrees and support it with whatever you have, wood, bricks etc. This will help stem the flow of gas from the tank while you have the "cup" removed.) Examine the "Bolt" and you will see one or two small holes in the side of the "Bolt" between the hex head and the threads. These are the metering orifices. Use the carb cleaner to throughly clean the "Bolt" orifices. (Tip: DO NOT attempt to 'drill' the orifices clean) Next, use the red plastic tube to spray carb cleaner up through the hole on the carburetor that the "Bolt" screws into. Be liberal with the cleaner. Finally, clean the "cup" with the spray one more time for good measure. Put everything back together. (Tip: easy does it on tightining the "Bolt") Level the mower, check for leaks and verify the oil level is OK. If the plug and air filter are up to snuff you should be good to go. (Tip: how old is your fuel? You should keep it around for only about 30 days unless you use fuel stabilizer. These little engines LOVE fresh fuel) Good Luck.

Toro Electric Start Mower Barely Turns Over

this is easy to point out the problem. if it is still under warranty get warranty replacement of the starter is not you might be better off just buying a new mower might be easier and cheaper because if your not still under warranty with it it will cost you quite a bit of money if you can't replace it yourself it will cost you the amount of the new starter and it will cost you the amount that the shop's labor fee which can vary a lot depending on where you take it.

If it is clicking, the solenoid is activating as it should so there is either a wire loose on the solenoid, a wire loose on the starter motor or the starter motor needs new brushes.
An old trick if the starter motor needs brushes is to hit it with a lump of wood to jar it.
