The diaghrams in the carb could be starting to stiffen up holding the needle open. Does it start with no choke when cold? Rebuild the carb to replace stiff diaghrams

SOURCE: Troy Bilt Trimmer 75SS stalls at full throttle. new gas

Hello. Let me assist you. Since your trimmer runs but stalls at ful throttle it is telling you that there is a fuel problem. Not enough gas is getting through the carbeurator to satisfy the engines needs on full throttle. Most likely the carbeurator is gummed up. A common problem. Let's see if we can un gum it by getting a can or carbeurtor cleaner. Go to any auto parts store and talk to the clerk about your need.

SOURCE: Troy Bilt TB 465SS Pony 4 cycle weed trimmer won't start

Sounds like you need to take the carb. apart and clean it. I like to use a Den Tek Brush, (used for cleaning teeth), to clean the small ports in carb. they work great for this job. Make sure to either clean or replace the small screen in thcarb. as well.

SOURCE: Cannot disassemble Troy-bilt trimmer head

There is a round, rotary black part between the metal piece to which the cutting head attaches and the outer plastic seat of the cutting head. There are two square slots, each about a quarter inch wide, on opposites sides of the black piece. Slide an Allen wrench or something similar firmly into the slot. Holding the Allen wrench in a stable position, turn the outer plastic ring of the cutting head (it has scalloped edges that can be gripped firmly) counter clockwise to unscrew the cutting head from the bolt on which it is mounted. Be careful with the tool (e.g. Allen wrench) used to hold the black piece steady, as it is plastic and could be damaged by the edge of the tool.

Puolan pro idles fine but quits when I give it any gas. It's quite new and just started doing this after it ran out of gas and sat a few days before I got some gas in it.


sounds like a float or jet clogged problem. If no carb on this model, then remove fuel line and blow it out. Also check air intake for obstuctions.

How to replace air filter on Troy-bilt TB20CS?


May be air filter but sounds more like your muffler is stopped up. First take the muffler off and see if it runs better without it. If so, burn the carbon out of the muffler and clean the muffler port on the engine. If not, then remove the four screw at the very end and disassemble. The ait filter is in that area. Diagram is located at

Need to clean carburetor of troy built trimmer. Where can I find directions on how to do it?


Go to any auto parts store and buy an aerosol can of carbeurator cleaner. Remove the air cleaner filter and give the air intake a couple of squirts. Pull the cord and turn the engine over a couple of times to draw the cleaner into the carb. Then let it sit for an hour and dissolve what ever is gumming up your carb.

Trimmer will not start.


Yes. Your carbeurator is gummed up. Get some new gasoiline and add some carbeurator cleaner to it, usually one ounce per gallon. Dump the fuel u have in there and put in the new fuel.

Also, get some spray carb. cleaner, remove the air filter and put a couple of squirts into the air intake chamber. Then start it.

Finally if it still won't start, use a squirt of starter fluid to get things going and get the carbeurator cleaning into the system.
