You may want to check the gas cap to see if it clogged with dirt. If the gas cap is clear, you more than likely have a carburetor problem. If you need tips on carb. cleaning, feel free to ask.

SOURCE: ENGINE KEEP'S DIEING, PUSH PRIMER BULB AND STARS,

Carburator issue. If you have some mechanical abilty you can pull the carb off else take it to a shop. You probably left gas in it off season. Either the main jet is clogged or the float valve is stuck. Either way, remove the carb, tae off the bottom cover and clean everything out with gum out or a carb cleaner. reassemble and eveything should be fine.

How to replace troy built tb25cs primer bulb?


The primer bulb has two clips that fit into a slot. You will have to squeeze both clips to pull it out. Make sure you remember which fuel hose went on each nozzle of the primer. There are two nozzles. Make sure you put the fuel line back on the same way. The part # for the bulb if you need it is a Walbro 188-512-1.

New primer bulb but engine won't prime


remove and clean the carby. clean out the main jet. ensure that there is nothing stopping the primer circuit from working. There are two valves under the primer bulb and a spring. when you push in the bulb fuel is squirted into the manifold When you take your finger off the bulb the spring pushes it out and new fuel is drawn past a valve to fill under the bulb. Pushing in again closes that valve and opens a second valve which allows the fuel into the manifold again

Where is the primer ball


It may not have a primer ball. If it does, it would be attached to the carberator. If it starts, but won't stay running, that could mean your carberator needs to be cleaned/serviced.

Primer bulb does not work


if you have gas in the primer bulb its working. gas is sucked from tank to carb , out return tube to primer bulb and back to the tank from the primer bulb. most likely dirt in carb or hard diaphram not opening needle valve allowing fuel to be sent. carb kits are around 12 bucks . but carbs for troybilts are usually only 20 bucks. I would just replace the whole carb if the case. if the bulb stayed empty I would look for broken fuel line in the tank that holds the fuel filter. they rot and break off within a year or two.

Not drawing fuel into carburator.


The primer button draws fuel into the carb. Once started the carb acts like a fuel pump and draws in fuel on its own. It sounds like the carb needs a new diaphram. It's not that hard to replace if you are a do it yourselfer. Just watch where the fuel lines are hooked up to.

I am going to go out on a limb here.. Most of these troy-built trimmers use this carb with primer bulb.

What usually happens to them is the primer bulb on the bottom of the carb gets a pin-hole in it and then air is drawn into the carb vs fuel from the tank.

You can try to get just a primer bulb at your local lawn mower parts supply. You may just have to bite the bullet and replace the whole carb.

Have to start on starting fluid, won't stay running. have replaced gas line and filter and primer bulb. What next?


You will have to pull your head to see if the valves are seating. If the exhaust valve is not seating it will send blow back through the carb.
