Hi I have a...

Hi I have a toro 20095 and I’ve notice the engine gets flooded but I don’t know why since there is no choke on this model

Just over a year old and it’s just started doing this within the past 2 weeks

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Yes

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Need to remove the carb and clean with carb cleaner and rebuild it as the needle is not sealing when needed and allowing more fuel than what can be burned off. What color is the plug when you pull it out?
