SOURCE: Troy built weedeater 70ss gas engine will not run

The needle and seat (esp. the needle) meter the amount of gas/oil that is being allowed into the metering chamber of the carb for use by the engine. Your problem does seem fuel related. These carbs are very temperamental and scare most folks. A guide to how they work can be found here: www.zamacarb.com/pdfs/TechGuide_2007.pdf
This will give you an understanding of what exactly you are dealing with. You may only require a diaghram kit or rebuild kit to get the carb back to the functionality it was designed for. That info can be found here once you know your carbs exact model number.

A troubleshooting guide for these carbs is included in the first pdf file, look it over maybe and see what you think. Post back maybe later after going to school (doesn't hurt to learn how they work). We will be here. I know you want to use this machine (its the growing season) but there are so many things that can be wrong that it needs to be narrowed down...sounds like fuel starvation and just may need to clean the inside of the carb with something like the brake parts cleaner spray. It is non-flammable and doesn't damage the sensitive parts inside these carburetors the way ehanol and harsh carb/chokle sprays and strong solvents due...NEVER soak these carbs in a "Gunk style" carb cleaning tank....it will seriously damage sensitive internal parts and check valves!

SOURCE: have a troy built tb

Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor. Sounds like you have gotten some trash in the cauburetor, check your fuel container to see if more trash is in it.
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.
Please do not forget to rate me,
Thanks
Good Luck,
I hope this helped

SOURCE: My Troy-Bilt TB70SS starts fine,but it will only

Hey... I have the same problem. It will start if I put in on #1, then it will continue to run if I put it on #2... but will eventually stop. It likes to idle between #1 and #2... but it will not run full power on any speed. Relativey brand new. Piece of junk and I will never buy a Troy Built anything even again!

Sorry I could not help with your problem. I can usually fix anything, but this thing is a piece of ****!

My troy built riding mower won't run full throttle it only run at about half throttle


if it runs good at half throttle, it just wont throttle up it sounds like the throttle cable has slipped. you might try to adjust it to get full throttle back .but if when you turn it up to full throttle and it dies then you have a choke, carburetor, fuel line, fuel filter or fuel tank problem. hope this gives you an idea.

I have a Troy built 5550 Briggs and stration generator. It will crank right up but will not feed any energy. What part should I order?


Sounds like the power regulator. Did you check breaker, you may have push or flip type. Make sure brushes are clean, they are between motor and generator around drive shaft. Be careful with them that's what tells gen to work.

Troy-built tb80ec will only run in half choke position


Reality. Place unit in trash. Every post about this model has same gripe. After short usage it: 1) only runs on half choke. 2) won't start after getting hot 3) has inaccessible fuel adjustment other than idle.

The unit is crap.

What engine oil is used for a model 01919, 5550 watt Troy-bilt genertor?


The generator engine is shipped from the factory filled with
oil (API SJ or higher 10W-30). This allows for generator
operation in the widest range of temperature and climate
conditions. Before starting the engine, check oil level and
ensure that engine is serviced as described in Maintenance.
This is from toy bilt manual >Good Luck...

Troy bilt 5550 generator no start please help


fuel, fire, mechanical. Miss one and she won;t run. Are you sure the gas was good? Not some old can laying around that may have turned or become water contaminated? If it was fresh gas, then take off the air cleaner and spray a little wd-40, or ether, or brake cleaner whatever is flammable into the carb throat. Just a 1 second shot is all it should need. Try and start with that. If it starts and then dies quickly, still a fuel problem. maybe a gasket is damaged, or the jet is clogged. When you said you checked for fire, you acutally took the plug out and had it grounded while spinning the motor and saw spark? If you saw a hot spark then you have eliminated fire. Mechanical not likely if it was running well a short time before. If a valve was damaged, it would still run but not too well. My gut feeling is it is related to fuel.

My troy-Bilt 5550 watt generator will not start


First drain the fuel bowl. Any old fuel in there will keep it from starting. Fuel stabilizer is not what it's it cracked up to be. I've worked for 6yrs at a rental yard and had no luck with any fuel stabilizer, the fuel still went bad. If after you drain the fuel bowl it still will not start, you will need to clean the carb. Remove the carb and spray carb cleaner through all the accessible passages. If this does not do it, you will need to replace the carb. For long term storage I highly recommend draining all the fuel and filling just the carb with fuel stabilizer to keep gaskets moist. Then drain the carb when you take it out of storage.

Generator is burning oil and choking out


You have/had too much oil in it. After it is brought down to proper level, it may have to burn the oil that is in areas that it should not be in. Another thing that may cause this, is a dirty air filter, can cause enough suction to pull oil around valves, and other places a clean filter will not. It may have oil in the filter too.
