Check the oil level. There is a safety device in a lot of small engines that will either kill the motor or not allow the motor to start if it is low on oil

SOURCE: I just purchased a troy

remove the spark plug.  And pull the cord again.  if the carb float is stuck down or you overfilled the oil you could be hydro-locking the engine.  Check.

SOURCE: How do I change the belts on a very old troy bilt

It's an old one, for sure. Best thing to do is get an owners manual, in which the belt replacement is fully explained. Basically, you'll have to find something to support the engine, take out the two bolts and bushings on the forward/reverse lever, pound out the two engine mount pins (after you loosen the retaining bolts), slide the engine forward and do you best not to chip the reverse disc. You will likely need to remove the battery mount bracket, it'll make the job easier. Also, you'll need to take off the throttle cable. Getting it back together is a barrel of laughs, you'll need some long screwdrivers to make sure the belts get into the grooves on the pulley. Put the belts on the engine pulley first and slide the engine back into place. Watch out so you don't chip that reverse disc.

In this case, the owners manual would be a big help. It should have pictures which would explain this procedure much better that I can here.

SOURCE: Rototiller pull start won't pull

First thing to do, if you haven't already, change the oil, and remove all 'old' gas.
Then, after that's done, remove the plug, in order to de-pressurise the cylinder.
Then try to crank it again.
If it turns, then clearly, it's not ceased.
Remember, don't loose you're patience, just take your time.
Good luck with that:)

Always start by checking the spark plug. If you are getting spark and still not starting, it's probably a carburator problem.

Electric start on Troy Bilt 21" single stage snow blower doesn't work. Recoil starter does. Electric start worked last year, but today, nothing. All cords good, power, etc.


The starter could be bad. Remove starter and see if it will turn over when 120v is applied.Check the wires to starter first! Good-Day!
