SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: I have a Toro model 20007 recycler with a 6.5HP Tecumseh engine

This almost sounds like a pinhole in the primer bulb but I need to know if you did the following. Did you remove the jet and venturi tube in the bottom of the carb. and clean the BRASS orifice hole and BRASS tube holes? If you did not then It will act just like the symptoms you described. Also check to see if your float bowl nut has holes in the side of it. IF it does then make sure the hole(s) are clean. Also make sure the fuel selector is all the way ON. Adittionally if the carb to block mating gasket is torn or not secure it will also perform as you stated.

Lastly the open the fuel air mixture screw on the side of the carb about 1/8th turn and see if the performance changes.

If the problem persists ....
This is dangerous due to the risk of fire but....

If you have any carb cleaner you can give it a quick shot in the nmating areas just after you start it before it gets hot to see if it speeds up. If it does, you have a vacuum leak. It is better to use an unlit propane torch if you have one.

Thanks for using FixYa,

Kelly

P.s. If the problem does persist I will need your complete engine number to proceed in troubleshooting.

Toro Power Clear 418 ZE Snow Blower won't stay started


The main jet of your carb is clogged and you need to open carb and clear the obstruction - spray carb cleaner on the bolt that holds the gas container to bottom of carb - also spray all the innards along with any tube that protrudes into the gas can.

Then using air compressor blow the sucker out and reassemble. That should do it.

I called my local Toro dealer about this problem and he immediately said "Oh, you've got a clogged carburetor". He directed me to tip the mower on it's left side, remove the air filter and just spray carb cleaner into the carburetor without removing the carb. He said it is common for a blade of grass to get in there and clog it. The pressure from the carb spray will usually dislodge a blade of grass. He also cautioned against removing the air cleaner assembly unless necessary. He said they warp easily and once you remove them, they rarely go back on cleanly ie without leaking, and you'll need to replace it. Also, if it's not too dirty, just adding Seafoam to your fuel can be very effective. For the $10 cost of a can of carb cleaner and a can of Seafoam, this worked for me.

The engine is starving for fuel, that is why it will keep running while you force the fuel to the engine with the primer button. At this point, the carb will have to be removed,disassembled and cleaned. I'm sure you will find blockage and dirt in the carb and also in the small orifices for air and fuel flow.

hi paul,

sounds like you have a dried out diaphram in the carburetor. depending on your model mower it will be located on the carburetor on the side attached by screws or it could be on older mowers underneath the carburetor if the carb is mounted to the tank. in any instance priming the bulb then it dying out is a sur indication of this. i woild replace the diaphram (inexpensive fix) cople dollars or so and that should work. you can take wd 40 and spray carefully around the carb base or around the cover to the diaphram and see if it will run a little longer if it does sometimes this will lubricate a dryed diaphram and will allow it to continue to run at leastuntil it becomes dry again. but it may allow you to get some mowing done until you can relpace it. hope this helps!
