SOURCE: My lawn mower tries to start but then dies shortly thereafter.

Probably. Does it start after you push the primer and then die? If so, yes, it's the carb. For any more info, I'd have to have the model and type #'s off the engine. Dwain

SOURCE: lawnmower is spewing white smoke

white smoke means that there is water in the fuel air mixture during combustion. a bluish white smoke means oil is being burned during combustion. take another look and make sure which one it is. since all mowers ive seen are air cooled the only way water can be getting in the fuel air mixture is through the gas cap. check your gas tank and gas can for water. may be best to empty both and start over with fresh fuel

SOURCE: brand new honda lawnmower starts and runs fine then backfires

There should be 1 or 2 screws on the carb. You will probably have to remove the air breather to get to the screw(s). I've been seeing a lot of these types of questions, new equipment not running properly. Factory settings were not set properly.

When you find the screw(s), screw in a clockwise direction until it stops; DON'T SCREW DOWN TIGHT, JUST UNTIL IT STOPS. Then unscrew counter clockwise 1 1/4 turns. Try starting.

Continue this process, 1/4 turn at a time up to 2 1/2 full turns. If you forget where you are at on the turning process, start over by screwing back down. Then pick up process where you left off.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Toro personal pace mower will not stay started?


If ir starts and runs for only a few seconds it's a dirty carb/bad gas. Drain the fuel system and use FRESH gas; change out your fuel supply monthly to avoid "phase separation" issues. If it runs for several minutes and then dies it is possibly a sticking valve. Do a compression check cold and after it stalls to confirm. Hope this helps

10 year old Toro 2017 lawnmower, suddenly stopped while cutting grass. Oil quite low. Cannot pull cord more l than few inches.


When you pull the cord does it hit a hard stop and not go any further or does it get really difficult?

Lawn mower ran out of gas, after refilling it will start, run for a few seconds and cuts off. There is no primer button for this model.


It would be best to take this machine into a dealer like www.arcolawn.com and have the thermostat checked out. There were some early autochoke thermostats that would stick and cause problems.Best wishesJoewww.barter-joes.com

I have a Toro self propelled lawn mower with a Briggs motor. It has the "Ready Start" feature that doies not want to work when cold. After several pulls of the starter rope and a few minutes...


There is a common problem with the ready start on early models. They tend to stick once moisture gets in them.

A dealer like www.arcolawn.com can do this under warranty for you.

Good luck

I have a toro lawn mower. Model no. 20352. The drive belt came off the pulley. How do I reinstall?


Go to this URL:

https://icontent.toro.com/smartmanuals/22Recycler/Proc10806.htm


On the left side of the page there are a few items for maintaining your mower. One shows how to change the drive belt for a front drive and one shows for the rear drive. Click on the one you have and it will show you how to accomplish this task. Be sure to either tighten the belt so it does not fall off again, or if it is bad, replace the belt. Please follow all safety instructions.
