    6.5 toro recycler not starting when hot

    my mower works fine first two pulls when it's cold, but after cutting one side of the yard or stopping to move something etc it wont start again when it's hot.

    Is it getting too hot? not even sure how it stays cool just via oil and fuel? I changed the air filter, oil, and plug and didn't fix anything. It also blows a bit of smoke in the first 2 minutes now

    Any suggestions?

    Sounds like your choke is shutting when the engine is stopped. If its a Briggs its probly the thermostat behind the muffler that tensions up and controls the choke . Its not hard to figure out, pull the air filter and check to see if the choke is closed after hot shut down. Common break down on Toro Briggs as well as others with this type engine.

    Thumbs up Re: 6.5 toro recycler not starting when hot

    I have a toro 20039 personal pace rough running and a whooping sound, I found the flywheel key sheared(fixed), A hole in the head gasket (fixed), cleaned carb, starts but stalls and is hard starting very frustrating, come to find out the wrong primer bulb was replaced with a solid bulb and not the correct one with a hole in it p/n 694395 used on non adjustable carbs, it now starts on the first pull 👍

    Well if you are trying to help someone that is no longer here then you are beating a dead horse so to say. Most of the post you posted to had already had an answer which is also beating a dead horse. If you want to tell everyone about your own experience, then you start a new thread and post it as informational. Lots of those post are on here. It is a lot easier to search for as well.
