It seems the carburetor is flooding and overflowing into the crankcase. This is a common problem. Need to determine what type of carb. you have: Walbro or Nikki to suggest a fix. Some simply put an in-line shut off valve between the tank and the carb. and turn the fuel "off" when they are not using the mower. You will need to change the oil and oil filter (if you have one). Hope this helps.

Ariens snowblower won't start


Did you drain the gas from last year? Gas is only good for a few Months. You should always run the machine dry at the end of the season or add Fuel Stabilizer at the end of the season. Id start by getting all the old gas out of the tank and the fuel Bowl on the carburetor. You will also want to check for spark. to make sure there are no electrical issues. Check oil level also. Depending on machine it may not start if oil level is to low alot of machines have a oil pressure switch.

Toro GTS 20332 (bought it 12 months ago) won't run


I believe that Toro Guarantees to start 1 Pull, was gas left in it all winter?, If so this is'nt covered under warranty, cause gas is to be ran out or dumped out at end of season this will prevent any gumming up of carb . did you completely disassemble carb? does it have a primer on it, those gskts need replacing, clean out the jet in bottum of float bowl,small holes,sometimes missed and remove and check your needle/seat to make sure that when float drops gas runs out then lift float up and gas should stop. hope this helped you,another thing spray carb cleaner in carb and pull over and see if it will start that way enough to keep running with choke to see if it will **** gas into it

If replacing the carb fixes the issue it is likely just dirty or bad fuel in the old one. make it a habit of running your mower out of fuel at the end of the season and ALWAYS use a fuel stabilizer in your outdoor power equipment fuel

Billows of white smoke when Toro lawn mower runs


You overfilled the oil. If the mower runs, just go ahead and mow grass until it runs the oil out of the gas tank. Or you can empty the gas tank and fill with new gas. White smoke is not a serious problem. Only a hassle.
