SOURCE: Electric starter won't engage with the engine.

I have just taken apart my Troy-Bilt Model 5521 so now I can see how all the bits fit together.

The electric starter is a separate device that engages with the cogs on the outside of the engine flywheel.

The cord pull engages the flywheel at the centre.

The fact that the cord pull starts the engine is a good thing.

If you dismantle the blower and take of the top cover (very annoying with many bolts all over the unit, take a look at the spare parts guide to see the exploded view) the starter it comes away with the power cord.

You can plug this in to the main supply and press the start button and you should see the small cogged teeth turning about 200 rpm. Keep your fingers clear.

I am guessing that this is not working at all. Either that or the cog wheel has shaved the teeth off or it is jammed.

This is a good do it yourself project for someone who doesn't mind getting their hands dirty.

It should take about 3 hours to take the unit apar and another 2 to put it back together.

Troy Bilt doesn't sell the starter motor or the engines (mine had an engine seize with a broken main bearing and a broken piston).

I suspect that the resellers don't have these parts either. But someone does.

Good luck

SOURCE: snapper electric start snow thrower won't start

If the engine has a float type carburetor, remove the float cover and see if the float is hung in the down position. If so free it up and make sure it will now operate freely up and down. If not and the bowl is full of crud, you will have to remove and clean the carb.

SOURCE: troy bilt mower won't stay running to cut lawn

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: Can't find the oil drain plug on Troy Bilt with 5.5 Honda engine

You may want to look under the deck. They sometimes put them there. And if it is a self propelled, you will probably need to remove or loosen the plastic cover that protects the self propelled belt.

You are looking for a nickel sized plug that has a square peg. Use an extension piece for a socket set if you don't have the proper plug removal tool.

There may be a cracked fuel line, cracked primer bulb, loose carburator, dirt/trash in the carb....it sounds like a fuel supply problem. Hard to tell with out hands on.
