    Maybe all the high grass isn't being eliminated by the blade and the deck and you are getting some clogging underneath. That could explain the overheating, but the starting issue will require some diagnostics to get at the root of the problem.

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

Mower wont start changed plug still wont start checked gas line seemed okay but what is that plastic piece in the line never seen one before


Getting a mower out of its winter slumber takes some time. Start with fresh gas, new oil, and air filter. Sometimes carbs get gummed up(varnisized gas). Donyboy73 on youtube shows how to remove Briggs n Stratton in tank carb systems and clean the parts and passages.

Toro Recycler engine doesn't rev up when control arm is engaged


check the throttle spring in the front of the engine.It is hooked to a loop and when going near a bush it will push in and slow the rpms down.If you locate it pull it out and the RPM"s should increase.

I have to prime the toro mower every time I empty the bag to get it to start?


  1. what is the model, manufacturer and year of mower?
  2. has any maintenance been performed on this mower?
  3. if no, try replacing the spark plug and air filter (it's possible the spark plug could be fouled and/or the air filter is clogged) be sure to follow the manufacturers recommendations for oil, gas, filters and plugs.
routine maintenance involves:
  1. sharpen/replace blade
  2. oil change
  3. replace air filter
  4. replace spark plug
  5. new gas
