Toro Recycler 22 won’t start

Toro Recycler 22 won’t start. Fuel, being not enough for consumption, won’t let it start. The electric plug doesn’t give current to the machine, and the recycler won’t start.

The electrical system problem won’t allow it to work. The start of Toro recycler being faulty is a pretty common headache.

On Sunday, I decided to mow my lawn. The grass and other plants were giving it a jungle experience. I took out my Toro recycler and brought it to the lawn.

I then tried starting it, but it didn’t start or even budge. I tried to use force, but the mower still won’t start. Feeling lost, I contacted a technician. He instructed me to follow his steps, and I fixed my Toro recycler by doing so.

Even the guide didn’t have such tricks, and the technician didn’t ask for money. But all technicians aren’t so kind. I noted his tricks in this article.

Read the article. Your Toro recycler wants to work.

Toro Recycler 22 won’t start
why toro recycler 22 won't start

In case there isn’t a subtle amount of fuel required by the Toro recycler to work, the mower won’t even start. Fuel is absolutely necessary for the mower to start.

Then comes the spark plug. It gives current to the electrical circuit and starts the consumption of the fuel. The spark plug ignites the fuel by providing it with shock.

The electrical circuit that gets current from the plug is next. The circuit provides stable energy to the mower and helps equalize power to the components.

Its failure causes no starting of the mower. Air to the engine is also a major reason for the lawn mower by Toro to not work.

There are reasons like a bad gas cap that cause mower problems. Let’s study them.

Fuel problems

defective carburetor

If enough fuel isn’t given to the mower, the mower won’t start. Getting fuel to start the mower is inevitable. The problem also stays if the wrong type of fuel is used.

You can’t use a gasoline mower by using diesel. The mower fuel problem goes the other way too. Not wrong, but impure fuel is another reason. A blocked fuel path is a problem too.

You may give a good amount of fuel, but the mower isn’t starting either. The fuel may leak from the fuel tank or pipes supplying the fuel.

You need to fix the tank and pipes. You may need to add more fuel if it isn’t enough. Check if the mower works on diesel or gasoline.

Add the fuel that suits it. If you have inserted the wrong fuel, take it out. Add the required fuel later. In case you are using the right fuel, you need to check if it’s pure.

If not, get good and pure fuel for the mower. Unblock the fuel path if it’s clogged.

Stuffed Spark plug/circuit

Spark plugs supply current for starting the mower. If the spark plug is broken or it has been damaged, it won’t work. There might not be a fault in the spark plug, but the oil and dirt combine and get in the plug.

The oil and dirt stop the flow of shock the spark plug is supposed to give. A loose spark plug won’t let the current reach the circuit, or the motor and the mower won’t start. The circuit can also be a problem and won’t allow even the flow of current.

wet or faulty spark plugIf the spark plug has dirt or oil in it, use a cloth to wipe it clear. If the spark plug was just loose, you just fix it harder so it’s tight.

If the spark plug is damaged, replace it. Circuits need professional replacement to work. It’s dangerous to do by yourself as the mower might lose all function.

Motor problem

If the fuel is just right and the spark plug is providing proper sparks, and the circuit is also giving even current, then check the mower’s motor.

If the motor won’t start, then there isn’t anything to start in the mower. Motor coils don’t work after some time. The motor may get faulty because of the uneven current from the circuit.

The replacement of motor coils or the whole motor will start with the Toro recycler.

The last word

The mower problems are caused because of the above reasons. While they aren’t all, they are most common. The gas cap needs venting, and fuel filter problems are some other reasons.

The fuel problems are easily solvable. The spar plug issue can be fixed too. If the motor is the problem or the problem isn’t located yet, consult a professional. The guide isn’t helpful, but it still has data that may be useful.
