Customer Question

I have a TORO RECYCLER rear wheel drive.
Mower is less than year. Never had any problems with starting engine. Always started on 1st or 2nd try.
Would not start yesterday. Have not mowed lawn in about 6 weeks. Oil level is good, replaced air filter, and replaced spark plug.
Still does not seem to be firing when pulling rope.
Please HELP.

Do you have any carburetor cleaner in a can?

Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

If so, spray a small burst directly into your carburetor, then try starting your engine again. Let's see if your engine will start up and run briefly.
