Dirty carb. Remove screw on bottom off carb exposing the carb float. Clean the float bowl. Ensure the float is working by pressing up on the float fuel flow stops, let it fall down, fuel flow. Observe the screw that you removed from the bowl, Look for to see if it has a whole thru it. Clean out the whole if it does. Bread wrapper wire with 1 in plastic cleaned off wire works good. Observe center fuel port, use wire to clean out port going to bottom of carb. Remove pin that holds float and meter needle, use wire to clean out port. Reassemble. Ensure free movement of float. Float up no fuel flow. Float down fuel flow. Use carb cleaner to clean carb inside. Ensure choke opens/closes properly. Always use Stabile in gas.

Toro ride on wont start


Battery required? Charge battery or replace. Replace air filter and spark plug. Dump out old oil and replace with 30w oil. Electric start may have a fuse blown. Dump out old gas fill with new with Stabile always added to gas. Try spraying starter spray in carb at air cleaner with filter removed. All mowers have a low oil sensor to prevent starting on low oil. Remove bowl from carb, should be full of gas. Pinch off fuel line with pliers or turn fuel valve off. Check float should be hanging down allowing fuel flow. Float up stops fuel flow.

Dump out old gas. Fill with fresh gas. Always use Stabile in gas. Clean or replace park plug and air filter. Check oil level. All mowers have a low oil start cutoff. 30w oil. If any grey in oil moisture contaminated, dump out old oil and refill. Check fuel line for cracks or leaking. Check primer bulb for cracks, replace if required. Clean outside of carb with carb cleaner to ensure easy choke operation. Remove carb bowl from carb, ensure float hangs down freely. float down fuel flow, float up fuel flow stops. Check bowl screw for hole thru bolt, if so clean out hole.

Fuel over flows thru overflow tubes only when motor is running. motor off ignition on it stops.


Hello
Your gas tank petcock is diaphram operated.
there is a vacuum line coming off the intake, that goes straightb to the petcock.
when you turn the motor over a vacuum is created, pulling the petcock diaphram back and allowing fuel to flow to your carburetor. when you turn the motor off the vaumm is gone and the spring behind the diaphram pushes it closed and stops the fuel flow to the carbs.

Now the reason the carbs are overflowing is because the floats valves are not closing, in other words the floats are sticking.
Usually a good carb clean will cure the problem, especially for that year.
the older ones usually require new float valves/seats that are usually found in a good carb rebuild kit. You shouldn't need one.

If your really broke try tapping on the bowls of the carburetor lightly, while the engine is running, sometimes the vibration will vibrate a particle loose that may be holding open the float valve.
if it works then the fuel should stop overflowing while running.

if you know how to work on it, try this, with the engine off.
open the carburetor drain screws so that fuel will run out the carb. drain. flush out the carb.
get a container to catch the gasoline.
while fuel is flowing tap the carb bowls a few times then closed the drain screws.
clean up any spilled gasoline .
start your bike.see if they stop leaking and the floats are closing.
if it still leaks, you'll need the cleaning.

Happy Riding
Best Regards

B&S 875 mounted on Troy Built Pressure washer: fuel leaks with throttle off - no fuel shutoff valve on this model. Only 1 year old. Always stored at room temp in insulated shed. Any ideas?


I am going to assume that the fuel is leaking from the air filter area....coming out the front of the carburetor or out of the primer bulb. This is an indication that the float in the carb is not closing off the fuel internally in the carb. Most of the time this is caused by storing the unit with gasoline in it. Gas will turn thick and varnish the inside of your carb in as little as 90 days. The carb will need to be cleaned. Usually this is done by removing the carb and cleaning it with an aerosol carb cleaner. Sometimes you can get by with just removing the bowl from the bottom of the carb and lightly spray clean the float pivot area, the inside of the bowl, and the brass jet that hold the bowl on. The float should pivot freely and pushes up on a needle valve that closes off the fuel flow.

To prevent this in the future, use a fuel stabilizer in your gasoline. Or, when you are done using the equipment, run it until all the fuel is gone.

Your Troybilt unit is probably covered by a 2 year warranty, but old varnished fuel in the carb would probably not be covered.

Good luck!

I have a John Deere LT133 w/13hp Kohler motor. Problem


I had the same mower in my shop with the same prob. Last week, here is what i did to correct the problem, take the fuel line apart at the fuel filter, open the fuel cap and drain the gas from the tank, once it stops i took couple old walmart bags and compressed air to slowly blow air in to the tank to blow the residue and trash out of the fuel tank. Next using compressed air to blow through the fuel line from where the filter was toward the carb. Next unbolt the carb and remove the fuel bowl, take the small pin holding the float out and slowly remove the float pulling strait up as the needle will be attached via a small channel on the float. There is where you will find the seat which the needle you extracted sets in to stop or allow the fuel to flow. Clean these parts and area WELL. i usually take the air screws out and use carb cleaner to clean those areas as well. Reinstall the needle and float, pin assembly and the bowl. Reinstall the carb , and make SURE to install a new fuel filter not exceeding the last filters micron flow, double check all connections, clamps, and hardware, add new FRESH gasoline with no less than 89 octane at any time, engine should fire and run as intended.

It means that either not enough gas is getting into the engine. The gas you pump in when you prime is enough to start the engine but not to keep it going.


There could be several things that cause this.
1. Old fuel:
Solution: Replace the fuel. Dump out the old stuff. If it is a year old it won;t work.

2. A dirty carburetor:
Solution: Clean the carburetor.
Easy carb clean:
Pull the bowl off and use carb cleaning solution to clean it. (you can buy carb cleaning solution a Wal-Mart in the automotive section. I have also heard acetone will work but I have not tried it.) Make sure not to loose the little parts like the pin.

Better carb clean:
pull the carb off the machine and clean each part with carb cleaner. There is a youtube video someone else posted on how to do this.

3. Your gas/air flow is not adjusted properly.
To check:
Pull off or out the air filter. Try to start it.
Solution:
If the machine runs longer there are two options: The air filter is dirty so replace it, or the air flow is not adjusted proberly. There should be a screw like thing sometimes called the "main jet" that you turn to adjust the air flow. It is on the carburetor side or bottom.
If the machine dies faster or won't start there is probably too much air flow and by removing the filter you added more air. Adjust the "Main Jet" as above.
