Mower won't start spark plug turns black

Black carbon fouling on the plug is a sign of the engine running too rich, start by replacing the air filter and plug and try again.

Toro 6.5 tecumseh won't start

replace your spark plug. it takes a Champion J19LM. If you left fuel in your tank over the winter then drain your tank and your float bowl. Add clean fresh fuel and it should go if not you need to clean your carb

Tecumseh 4.5 hp engine won't start

First thing to check on a Tecumseh; pull the half inch bowl nut (main jet) out of the bottom of the carburetor. Give it a good cleaning with carb cleaner then pay special attention to the teeny tiny hole that is right at the very top of the threads. It's so small you can hardly see it and if it clogs, your mower won't start. Best of luck to you.

My toro mower won't start. new air filter, new spark plug, etc. could it just be stale gas?

The Toros have a Tecumseh engine and are famous for this. I'd suggest you do a thorough cleaning of the carburetor, but there is a little known secret that I've learned about this particular carb. Pull the bolt from the bottom of the float bowl on the carb (1/2 inch wrench; the "main jet"). Be sure that all the little holes in that jet are clean and you can stick a wire thru them. There is a microscopic hole at the very top of the threads on that brass bolt that often gets clogged and your mower will not start. I use the wire from the needle valve inside the carburetor to stick thru it, as it's about the only thing that'll fit. (note: if you have 50 year old eyes like me, you can't even see this hole w/out specs). Hope this helps and best of luck to you. (also, be sure you put the float bowl back on the right way; there's a bevel in the back that needs to go toward the hinge in the float or the float won't work. Learned that one the hard way as well. )

My toro recyler starts easily but dies after a few minutes. It seem to be starving for air or fuel.

If it's a Toro, then it probably has a Tecumseh engine and carburetor. Probably needs a good carb cleaning, but here's a tip for ya that you can perform yourself.. Take the bottom bolt out of the carb float bowl (the main jet) with a 1/2 inch wrench. At the very top of the threads on that bolt, there's a tiny tiny tiny hole you can barely see that gets plugged up. You'll need a very very very fine piece of wire to stick in it and unplug it (or perhaps a very thin sewing needle). then spray some carb cleaner in there and all over it. Also check the other two larger holes on it and spray and clean them as well. Perhaps this will help. Best of luck.

My 3 year old 22 inch walk behind mower will not start, I replaced the spark plug, there is no spark when I pull the hand start

Replace the flywheel key by removing the rewind housing, the flywheel nut and then remove the flywheel by using a small engine universal puller (cheap) and install a new key.
