SOURCE: starter rope on Troybilt TB575SS

try removing the starter housing, inside will be a large white or black wheel, visually inspect to make sure the componets are not damaged and that nothing jamming it. try using a lithium spray grease to lubricate the componets. if it still doesn't work the inner coil is probably damaged or came off track. it is very difficult to fix or replace this coil. i suggest taking to your nearest service center but if you would like to try it yourself, let me know and i will give you further instructions.

Your carburetor needs cleaned. Disassemble carb. and spray with carb. cleaner. Make sure that the small screen is free of debris. Use a Den Tek Brush,
(http://www.dentek.com/shop.php?target=products&product_id=7), to clean the small portals in the carb. Reassemble and start. If this doesn't work for you then you will have to buy a carb. kit and replace all appropriate parts. If you need further assistance, just let me know.

Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor a few times, and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower/weedeater is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, You will first seat the jet screws and count the number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns they were in/out.

SOURCE: I have a TroyBilt trimmer Model TB25CS 2 cycle. I

first remove your muffler and check to see if screen is plugged in exhaust..this will cause it not to rev. Also if you rebuilt your carb you neglected to pull your jets out and flush them out, pull both caps off adj screws with small screwdriver and try to adj "H" turn counterclockwise 1/8to 1/4 turn and see if it improves any if so keep turning till rpms start to slow back down then slowly turn back clockwise just till on edge of rpms speeding back up ,also did you change your fuel filter? hope this helps you!

Km90 starts but won't run on full revs


The KM90 is a 4mix engine that has valves. You may need to check the valve clearance, using the clearance tool.

Changed filter and fuel lines, poulan 31cc 250E. starts fine but dies when accelarated


My chainsaw was doing this.The carburetors on these small engines have a fuel inlet screen that clogs with tiny bits of debris.Remove the carb,and take the portion off that has the fuel line attached to it(if you're careful,you can reassemble it without needing a new gasket).The screen is about 5/16" in diameter.Spray some carb cleaner in there to clean the screen out.(this is mt best guess,because it sounds like a fuel starvation problem)

Let the engine warm at idle adequately before applying full throttle. With the engine warm, slowly bump the throttle and see if the response is good: if the engine wants to die again, let it continue warming at idle. If the problem persists, check that you are mixing your oil/gas mixture at the correct ratio: too much oil and you risk clogged the works.

I have a 6hp briggs and stratton that i just rebuilt the carburetor on. I can get it to start but it just chugs along at low idle. what adjustment am i missing.


There are two adjustments. 1) Idle speed ( the screw that contacts the throttle plate. 2) The high speed. Location depends on carb, if it's a venturi-jet (not attached to tank, it's on the bottom, start at 3/4 turn out from seat, adjust in or out until motor goes from idle to full throttle without stumble. There are only two screws so they shouldn't be hard to find, idle is where your throttle cable hooks.

Trimmer dies when you apply throttle


Sounds like it might be getting to much gas. What position is the choke in during all of this? If you're giving it throttle it may be flooding itself out.

Engine starts but dies when I pull throttle trigger


you need to adjust the high speed needle turn it out in 1/4 increments as you throttle it, low speed may have to come out alittle but do high speed first. I had to answer this as I use to have a pastor john in sturgeon bay, miss him alot.

Starts then dies stihl fs45/weedeater


I sounds like it sucked up some debris in the bottom of the fuel tank and obstructed fuel flow somewhere. Start by blowing out the in-tank fuel filter (You will have to fish it out with something), then load the line with carb cleaner (wear safety glasses) put fuel filter back in line and crank it a few times to pull the carb cleaner into the carb. This may dislodge the obstruction. If this doesn't work, you will have to remove and cleant he carburator. Hope this helps.

Mighty lite 26ss starts fine, but needs half choke for a long time. Runs for 10-15 mins. and seems to starve out. Acts like an air leak at carb or downstream. Any ideas?


I fixed one of these with the same problem yesterday. Theonly thing I've found wrong with this little saw is the carbs are terriblyadjusted from the factory and the mixture screws have a 'proprietary' head.they're a flat-topped cylinder with a notch in the side.

fortunately, there is a way to turn them. The insulation on a blue solderlesselectrical terminal will grip the outside of the mixture screws enough to movethem. you use the big end of the insulation you stick the wire into. doesn'tmatter what kind of terminal it is. splices work the best because theinsulation is long enough that you can grab on to it, but I just pulled theinsulation off a spade terminal and used pliers to turn it, as I didn't haveany splices.

I pulled both mixture screws out and cut a slot across the top with a smallfile so I can turn them with a flat head screwdriver. if you do this, only pullout one at a time, they need to go back in the respective seat they came fromor they won't seat properly.

I also took a file and cut an access notch in the air cleaner housing so Icould adjust the high mix while the trimmer was running. takes 10 seconds witha coarse round file, but a chainsaw file takes forever.

To set your mixtures, screw both mixture screws all the way in until theylightly seat. DON'T tighten them way down, just lightly seated.
now, look at where the notch is pointed and turn them out 1 1/4 turns. turningthem out (counterclockwise) makes the mixture richer. turning them in(clockwise) makes the mixture leaner.

now, screw the idle in a full turn so it idles very high (you'll turn this backout later, but this takes some of the frustration out of tuning the carb). You maywant to take the string head off, as it will 'run' at idle now.prime the trimmer (10 pushes if you haven't tried to startit earlier, 2-3 if you did. you can't over-prime, though, you're just removingair bubbles from the fuel pump)

put it on full choke, grab the throttle with your left hand and pull the recoiluntil it tries to start. if this takes 10+ pulls, turn the low speed jetout(richer, counterclockwise) 1/16 to 1/8 turn. you want to work in smallincrements, or you'll waste a bunch of time overshooting where you want to be.

once you get it to bump over full choke, back the choke off a bit. if you'requick you can usually do this while thetrimmer is trying to run fully choked. most likely you're still going to belean on the high mixture, so having the throttle pulled may kill the saw. if itseems like it's dying when the throttle is pulled, but not at idle, then you needto turn out the high speed mixture screw.Concentrate on getting the low speed jet set so it will idlewith the choke off and the throttle off first. Once you get it so it will idle unattended, you can startbacking the idle speed down. From there, you can adjust the low speed jet whilethe saw is idling. Start by turning it leaner in small 1/16 turn incrementsuntil the speed picks up. If this kills the saw before the idle picks up, youhad it a bit too lean to start. if you get the idle to pick up, richen up themixture 1/16 turn. You want to be just richer than where the speed picks up. Ifthe saw died before it picked up, richen it up 1/2 a turn and start it again. Leanit out as before until the speed picks up, then richen it up a bit. This may sound time consuming, but you can stick ascrewdriver on the idle screw and gently turn it in continuously, so itactually goes pretty quickly once you get the saw to idle.Now that you have it idling nicely, you can adjust the highspeed jet. Start by 'blipping' the throttle. If the trimmer bogs down, richenthe high mixture. Now, if you're WAY rich, it will behave similarly, but with thistrimmer, that's pretty unlikely if you're starting at 1 1/4 turns. One way youcan tell if you're way lean or way rich is with the choke. If it will run fullthrottle with the choke part way on or if it picks up faster with the choke partway on, you know it's too lean. The choke richens the mixture up to compensatefor the gas condensating in the throttle bore when the saw is cold. If thechoke kills it, you're too rich.if it will run, then you can adjust the high speed similarlyto the idle. A leaner mixture will have more power and spin a higher RPM to apoint, but it will also run MUCH hotter and an excessively lean mixture willseize the piston. So, you're going to want to err on the rich side. You'lldefinitely be able to hear the rpm change, a way rich mixture will be almost 1/2the speed of the proper mixture, and a too lean mixture will sound like thetrimmer is going to fly apart at the seams. Once you get the high mixture to the point that you can grabthe throttle and the saw will pick up to max speed in less than a second, thenyou're ready to cut something. You may need to adjust the mixture leaner for abit more power if it bogs down in normal grass trimming, or if it is running througheverything including big weeds without changing speed, you should probablyrichen it up. This is NOT a big trimmer, it SHOULD bog down a bit if you loadit up.A final note about this trimmer, I never could get it to acceleratesmoothly from idle to high speed. It lags for about 1/4 second just above idlethen it picks up as it should. It runs fine once it gets past that hesitation,you can vary the throttle to be delicate around things, ect, but if you let itidle, it does hesitate when you pull the throttle again.I was pretty surprised how well it ran once I tuned itthough, this one is my boss's and he's got a 3-blade cutting head on it that'sa lot heavier than the string head and it will spin it just fine. It will cutdown saplings to maybe 5/8".Good luck!
