Question about Troy Bilt 5.5hp Self Propelled Mower
Snapper electric start won't start. it turns and then stops. then again and again after waiting a couple of mins. HELP please i have a ton of snow
If it is stalling, first change the plug as it could be flooding because you do not have hot enough spark. Never hurts to change plug anyway. Make sure you gas is good if it is old this could cause this..
Another thing to check is if you have spark and it starts and stall right away you could have a bad key under the flywheel . if this is broke it will throw the timing off. a good way to check this is this, take out the plug and remove the cover around the flywheel. this is the cover that has the rope on it. after you remove the flywheel cover and the plug you can stick a pencil in the cylinder where you took out the spark plug, then turn the flywheel by hand and as the magnet turns by the coil or magneto your pencil should come out of the whole indicating the piston in the up posistion. When the magnet on the flywheel passes the coil this must be on the up stroke of the motor or compression stroke so to say. when the magnet passes this is what causes to plug to fire. If your key is broken the flywheel will slip and it may try to fire when the piston is not all the up(timing off) the motor will never run. This is a fairly simple job and should only take an hour or so. you may need a wheel puller to do it or be very careful.
