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

We have a troy bilt snow blower 1 yr old and we are trying to start it. When we try to prime it, the primer bulb does not seem to be moving any fuel. It just sounds like air. It will not start. We have...

Are there two tubes connected to the back of the primer bulb?
If it is connected, then the primer bulb itself could be cracked, allowing air to enter, but not fuel.
See if you can gently pry or possibly unscrew the bulb for replacement. They are readily available.

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.

I am going to go out on a limb here.. Most of these troy-built trimmers use this carb with primer bulb.
PN 753-1225

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.

Troy bilt mower. starts but shuts off within seconds.

sounds like you have a primer bulb if you take the bolt that holds the float bowl off and take a tip cleaner that they use for welding tips and clean the holes out of the side and the top it should let the fuel in again that will save you a trip to a service repair shop
