If you didnt treat fuel before storage last season then likely the carburetor is fouled. Try adding a fuel treatment e.g. Seafoam, but likely ithe carb will need a thorough cleaning or replacement.

Let warm up if still does need new spark plug

Try a short burst of starter fluid into the carburetor and promptly pull starter. If it runs for a couple seconds and quits then the carburetor is not delivering fuel.

If it doesnt run on starter fluid then either flooded, insufficient spark, or poor compression / crankcase leak.

I have had the same issue with Toro. Finally took it to a local wizard. AFter about 5 minutes if him trying he suggested it would make a great boat anchor. Once Toro goes out of factory specs, that's just about it. A few lucky folks I know with Toro products either accidentally stumble on the just-right combinations or off to the lake they go.

Check and see if there is a shear or safety pin in one of the drive pulleys that has broken.See if there is a pulley that turns by hand when this happens. Could be one has broken but grabs for a little bit. Also check the drive belt and see if it is slipping Check all the drive areas . BE SAFE BY TAKING THE KEY OUT AND TRYING BY HAND>

check your flywheel key. its probably sheared

what belt did you change? i assume the drive belt. if it is not exactly the right size it wont work. if it is not routed correctly it wont work. it may have slipped off of a pulley.

The deck belt is not adjustable, it is tightened by the number 26 spring. Spring can loose tension or the belt could be stretched.
