You may not need to change the ignition module. The "air-gap" on it may just need to be adjusted. That is, the distance between the pickup legs of the ignition module and the magnets integrated into the flywheel. You would have to remove the exterior cover and any sheet metal cowling (directs air flow off the flywheel around the engines cylinder). Then, the coil and flywheel should be visible. I use a standard business card as a gauge. Slide it between the coil legs and the magnet area of the flywheel. You should feel just a slight little rub. If it won't slide or the gap is large, no spark will be produced. You will have to loosen the screws holding the coil in place, double up the card. let the magnets pull the legs in against the card with magnets behind and retighten. Then recheck for spark. Post back if needed.

Toro lawnmower Wiil not start


Remove carb float bowl. Clean bowl. Observe float bowl screw, look for hole thru bolt, if present use thin wire to clean out. Float should be hanging freely and gas should be flowing, raise float gas should stop. Pinch off gas line or use shut off valve. Remove pin from float, remove float and needle meter. Use thin wire to clean out passage were meter needle is inserted, wire should pass thru to behind choke. Replace float & meter needle. Replace float bowl. Pull rope half way several times. Inspect primer bulb for cracks or leak. Try to start, may take 5 or more pulls to prime.

Starts and runs great(when engine is cold).\r\nafter 15 mins the engine dies. will start up again, but will only run about 5 sec. and then dies. toro super recycler 5.5 hp GTS5


I would check the gas cap. If the gas cap is plugged or pieces missing from inside it will not allow air into the tank and the fuel will not flow properly to the carburetor. Just loosen the cap and try it, if it does not change check for dirt in the fuel line.

check your oil is it up to full, then I would check to see if you have compresson, pull your plug and roll over and feel with finger ,but don't touch spark plug wire or you will light up! next I would check for spark, then for fuel, make sure the carb is getting fuel,,,check your hoses and fuel cap and clean your carb and needle/seat and make sure gas will run through the fuel line. Also you could have sheared a flywheel key

the choke out you are talking about could of been a lean condition and smoked the eng rings
Good Luck compresson test should tell all 2StrokeJim

Make sure that the doggone brass bolt that holds the carb bowl on was cleaned as well. It is the main jet and has tiny holes that get clogged from evaporated fuel/varnish and debris (if no inline fuel filter is used). It has holes on the bottom and the smooth part of the sides...it needs to be clean and shiny! If all is well and the motor is an OHV, then maybe the valves need adjusting.

Toro super recycler mower will not stay running, has fuel and oil and air filter was just replaced


Try replacing the fuel and spark plug. Gas may be bad. Get some fresh from the station not from the can sitting in the garage.
Drain the fuel system and put the fresh gas in.
