    No solution, only a little advice. Toro warranties this mower as "Guaranteed To Start" for 2 full years from date of purchase. Go to www.toro.com to find your nearest servicing dealer. Let the dealer figure it out. It might be something simple, like needing a lighter weight oil.

This is covered by the Warranty. Take it to a local dealer like www.arcolawn.com and have the thermostat replaced.
The first generation thermostats are known for sticking.

Good luck

Where is primer on craftsman platinum push mower


It may not have one. Some mowers auto choke using spring tension on the choke plate in the carb. They open the choke when the engine speeds up after starting.

Hard to start n cold wheather put new battery in it still having trouble


I suspect the choke isn't closing fully. Remove air cleaner down to where you can see the choke butterfly. With the controls in choke position that butterfly should be completely closed. If not you can adjust it. If this is cable operated, adjust it by loosening the screw that holds it on the bracket and slide it until choke closes. This is done usually on carb end. I am also assuming it runs fine after start. Hope this helps.

New honda hrr auto choke hard to start


sounds like it may need the carb clening out, but it could be the auto choke not closing when cold. there was an issue with some of the early auto chokes on the gcv135/160 engines so check to see if the choke flap is in the closed position when starting from cold, run the engine for approx 10-15 minutes and see if the choke flap has opened fully.leave it to go cold and see if the choke flap has returned to the closed position

Toro riding lawn mower. 12 h/p is hard to start


Hi there, It is most likely that the choke isn't closing fully. The throttle cable will need to be adjusted to cure this. The cable is clamped where it joins the engine. Simply slacken the bolt and move the outer cable out a bit. When you operate the throttle control you should see the choke start to operate near the start position. Make sure that the choke control rod operates to its fullest extent when the control is fully on the start position.
