Question about Troy Bilt Tb70ss Gas Trimmer

1 Answer

Stops running Weedeater worked fine on first two uses. On third use, started fine, ran 5 minutes, made a sound as is something in the carbuerator/ engine area vibrated loose and died. Would not restart. Put in garage and 1 week later tried again. Started fine, ran 5 minutes, sounded like something vibraated loose, engine died and would not restart. Where do I start looking for a problem, or is it too late to retur it for another one?

If you bought it recenly and still able to return or exchange at store, try that first. if not, check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. if that doesn't work have the carb repaired at a service center or replaced.

Sounds like a bad float in the carbuerator. It could also be bad fuel filter. I suggest you run this one by Partstree.com in Austin, Tx.

It sounds like the compressor is reaching the max psi it can hold. At this point can you use a air tool or blower? The reason it comes back on is to keep the psi at running level. It replentishes the lost or used air.

Good luck!

Leave the key in the run position until the security light stops blinking. This should take 10 minutes. Then turn the key off, wait 5 seconds and try to start it. The security light should be blinking again. Leave the key on again for 10 minutes. Repeat this 3 times. After the third time on the the next start it should start and run fine. This will reprogram your theft system.

Once it heats up either the spark plug or the ignition module is breaking causing them not to work. I would first check on the price of the ignition module, Then decide it is to expensive to repair and send it to the scrap man.
Good Day.

Replace fuel lines WeedEater FL 1500 Blower


On the FL1500:
  • The Smaller line goes on the Lower inlet tube on the carborater the other end goes to the gas filter inside the gas tank.
  • The Larger line goes on the upper outlet tube on the carborater the other end goes to a fitting that holds this tube from coming out on the gas tank .This tube is only for Air, it helps fill the primer bulb when pushed.
I hope this helps.
Mechs correct me if I have made a mistake.

Stihl weed eater runs 2min. then stop


Stihl weedeater was running and stopped suddenly. Put in a new fuel filter and cleaner air filter with soap and water. Checked spark plug and it appeared fine. Started the weedeater, ran for a second or so and stopped. Spark plug wasn't gas fouled. Could it be the carburetor needing new diaphram gasket and spring.
