Hi there

if you had the carby off and cleaned it out , was the fuel flow from tank to fuel pump ( if it has one ) good , and was the output from pump to carb good on cranking?

if so and the breather in cap is venting , it could be that the governor needs adjusting, possibly have got a spring in the incorrect position and there is no binding , pay to check , carby main jet closly for any obstruction. check the fuel level and float hieght .

most times hunt / surge is caused by obstruction to fuel flow , or governor

try holding the governor in a fixed position if hunt / surge still apparent - carby is causing fault
but if not governor setup is causing problem

When you had the fuel filter off, did gas flow freely from the hose? Sounds like maybe the tank has dirt in it blocking the fuel line. Other than that, maybe there is dirt in the carburetor bowl.

Toro is a great brand, but the Home depot models are for home use. IF it won't start correctly you should troubleshoot the problem as this is a built in safey system for your benefit. There is a switch on both parking breaks, A switch to detect you sitting in the seat. The PTO must be disengaged. Check each of these. If you have your manual you can view the schematic diagram, and test each switch. If not, you can download a manual from Toro web site. According to your model and serial number your deck would only have two blades. They also have what they call "blade stiffeners" . Your results from buying power equipment from a big box store is typical. If you need service, pay a little more, and buy from your local power equipment distributor.

Toro Model# 30169-20000166 - Kawasaki 17 HP. Fuel spontaneously started running through carb into air cleaner. I have shut off fuel, but will run continuously. How do I fix the problem?


sounds like you need to clean out the carby and flush the fuel tank ,your problem would be caused by some dirt or something holding the float needle open.
