Troy built chipper/shredder won't start

I ran shredder and forgot to check oil. Ran out of oil and had small amount of smoke from oil part. Now the pull cord seems a little slack and the shredder will not start. Is the motor blown. Can I repair it. This shredder is just over a year old.

It takes good gas, good spark, and good air for a gasoline engine to run well. The next thing I would do is put a new air filter in it.

If a branch was already being chipped when it ran out of gas...you must clear the hopper of any chunks of wood in it. Pull the plug wire and use a metal pry bar to dislodge any pieces of wood. when the flywheel runs free, put the plug wire back on and the choke on. Try it now!!!

SOURCE: How do I clean the fuel line on troy bilt 5hp chipper vac?

unscrew the nut on the bottom of the carburetor and remove the float bowl it must be emptied and cleaned , debree and water gets into the bowl and blocks of fuel flow reinstall the bowl and start, some carbs don't have a float bowl requiring you to remove the gas tank and carb which is a more involved cleaning.

Location for adding oil?


Hi,
Most small engines have a cap where you check your oil level. This is also the access for putting in oil.

Here is a link to the Troy-Bilt site for chiper shredders. I don't know what model you have but you can select your model and obtain a users manual.

There is a blockage in the outlet from the fuel tank, there is a filter in the tank and it is dirty. Try it anyway. Stephen.

5 HP troy bilt chipper sherdder will not rev up under load


Either or do one of two things if the motor runs pretty well Start the engine and run it full throttle. Once there if it has a high speed jet turn the screw in to start with until the engine stumbles a bit and then turn it back about a half turn. When you turn it in you should here the engine peak out. .If it is blowing black smoke out the exhaust it means the high speed screw is to far out so turn it in until it smooths out.If the engine smooths out then you have cured the problem. Good luck.
