    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.
