If the engine will idle but dies at full throttle the main jet in the carburetor may be plugged. You can repair a plugged main jet by cleaning it, replacing the jet, or replacing the carburetor. If you choose to clean or replace the main jet, you will also want to clean the rest of the carburetor.
The primary reason why your lawn mower might be revving too high is that the engine is receiving too much fuel or air. This can be due to various factors, including a clogged air filter, a malfunctioning carburetor, or an issue with the governor.
The most common reason for a surging lawn mower engine is a blockage in the fuel supply, but there are other possibilities: Bad gas. Bad spark plug. Dirty/faulty carburetor.
(1) The blades should always be turned on at full throttle if the mower has a electric P.T.O. switch.
Most often, over-revving occurs not because of a deliberate attempt to push a vehicle, but rather as a result of missing a gear while shifting. When a manual car accidentally downshifts, a rev limiter will not be able to react quickly enough to prevent the engine from over-revving.
For a high-revving engine, you want a short stroke, since it means each piston will travel a shorter distance to reach that ideal average speed.
A full gas tank and oil reservoir are the essential first steps when checking why the lawn mower won`t stay running, but the problem could also be a dirty filter, clogged carburetor, improper fuel mixture, or a dirty spark plug.
Your lawn mower turning over but not starting due to several reasons, such as a faulty or disconnected plug, a disconnected spark plug wire, a clogged air filter, or a contaminated fuel tank. A faulty carburetor, a dirty cutting deck, or a dysfunctional flywheel brake can also cause this.

How do you change the transmission in a 20067 toro personal pace lawn mower
I followed this video and it was pretty accurate. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eSaNVZaUi-k This is for a newer model mower but most steps are the same.
Throttle running too slow
I have the same problem. The mower is great—always starts and runs good, but it runs to slow and you can’t speed it up. I even took it all apart. There just is no throttle control. I imagine it is designed this way to keep people from working on their mowers and to require an expensive trip to the service center. It will be my last Toro for this reason.
New toro personal pace. Smokes a ton when first initally starting after overnight rest. Sometimes even afer mowing a few lawns it might not start then if let sit for a while will start again
Sounds like a piston ring or valve issue. If it is still under warranty, I’d think about a return.

Toro Personal Pace self propel problem.
Your self-propel is probably belt driven. Belts can make an awfully lot of noise when unhappy. Possible it has rolled over and is running on the wrong side of the belt or is worn and just needs replaced. Hope this helps.,

Lawn mower will start and run for 5 seconds and shut down
Will it stay running with your choke on? if so then clean your carb. if not then look for a blockage from tank to carb. ie fuel shut off, deteriorated fuel line. plugged filter etc
First start is excellent when cold, will not restart again warm
It sounds as if your engine may be getting too hot. I suggest that you check under the covers and make sure that all the debris is cleaned out. These are air cooled engines and as such need to be kept relatively clear of debris, especially anywhere there are cooling fins.
