Lawn Mower. 22 in. Personal Pace with Blade Stop System…
Hello – My lawn mower died while mowing my lawn. I changed the oil filter, dumped some oil out and I have plenty of gas. Everything appears to be normal but the mower just starts a little bit and then dies. Not sure what else to do at this point.

How to Identify and Fix Common Gardening Problems ?
We provide a variety of viewpoints on how to identify and fix common gardening problems. Our sources include academic articles, blog posts, and personal essays from experienced gardeners :
A dirty filter chokes off air to the engine making it hard to start so check to see if yours needs to be replaced. If you need a new filter be sure to use the original manufacturers part or the correct Toro replacement. These can often be purchased at your local Toro dealer or a home improvement store.
Disconnected, dirty or fouled spark plugs are common causes for engines that won`t start. For small engines, spark plugs typically need to be replaced every season or after 25 hours of use. You should also check to make sure the spark plug gap is set correctly.
The most likely cause of a no-start mower after running out of gas is dirt in the carburetor, but other possible causes include: Air locked gas system. Faulty carburetor. Contaminated gas.
A dirty carburetor is one of the most common causes for a lawn mower not being able to start after sitting unused for months or years at a time.
So can you push a self-propelled lawnmower? You can push a self-propelled lawnmower, it won`t damage the transmission in any way. However, it may be difficult to do so, self propelled mowers are a little heavier than a regular push mower.
Their Briggs & Stratton 22 HP are small engines that rely on a number of components in order to effectively run. Common issues that can arise on Briggs & Stratton 22 HP engines include old spark plugs, a disconnected solenoid and an inaccurately spaced air gap.
If your vehicle won`t start, it`s usually caused by a dying or dead battery, loose or corroded connection cables, a bad alternator or an issue with the starter. It can be hard to determine if you`re dealing with a battery or an alternator problem.

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.
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.
I have trouble starting a toro walk behind mower
All, I thought my carb was shot, so I replaced it. Still, start but no run (and had to use starting fluid). THEN!!! I noticed the spring to the “rev limiter” (just below and towards rear of carb) was not “tight”. The stupid bracket that holds the end of that spring had been bent down ~1/16″ and that caused all this heartache. CHECK YOUR REV LIMITER!!!
Why wont my mower start and gas comes out of muffler
Carb is flooding out ether bad plug or your carberator needs rebuilt
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
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.
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.
Mower won’t start. Toro mower..engine won’t turn over. Cleaned sparkplug…checked air filter..weather cool. Followed instructions for cold engine…prime witrh three pushes of the bulb..wnon’t even hint at a start..
Something everyone over looks is oil. Did you check the oil? You seemed to mention everything else but. If you have a low oil switch with low oil it will not start
