My Toro CCR 2450 has starting problems. What do I do?

My Toro CCR 2450 won't start. I'm in the middle of a blizzard. Please help!


Thank you for using JustAnswer.

Pull the spark plug out and get the gas out of the cylinder.
Then use the choke to start it.
Once it starts, use it on full throttle.

Sounds like you flooded it or you might have some old gas in the gas tank.

How do I pull the spark plug out?

You need a socket or an open end wrench to get to it.
Look for the spark plug wire.

I am looking for a picture for you now.

yes, try warming it up with a hair dryer

use no choke after you warmed it up with dryer
