Hi Roy
Sounds like you have dirt/debris in your caburetor jets,fuel passages or a diaphgram that is becoming non-flexible.
Check/Clean/Replace your Air Filter, a dirty air filter can make your engine run to rich with fuel.
Also be sure to check and clean your spark arrestor in the exaust,if you have one installed on your engine.
Note: ALWAYS USE COMPRESSED AIR TO CLEAN YOUR JETS AND PASSAGES, VERY IMPORTANT.
Note:Before you disassemble the carburetor:
Write down on a piece of paper or take a picture of how the linkage attaches to your carburetor for later reference when you go to reinstall your carburetor.
Mark each piece with a awl, or some kind of instrument that will make an alignment scratch before you disassemble the carburetor into separate pieces.
That way you will know which way it goes back together when you reassemble it.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or by using a very small shot of starting fluid 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.
Be sure to check your fuel tank for water and dirt/debris, if there is water/debris then you need to clean your tank.
Check you fuel line condition after a while they will degrade and need replacment.
Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one, normally they are located in the fuel tank of chainsaws and weedeaters.
When you remove your fuel lines from the carburetor be sure to make a drawing to how the lines are connected to the carburetor or take a pictue for later reference.
Normally the big line will be the line the fuel filter is connected to inside of the tank.The smaller of the two lines is the return to the fuel tank from the carburetor after it is pumped thru the carburetor by the primer bulb.
Make sure you are using fresh fuel...and oil if your using a two cycle chainsaw or weedeater with the oil to the right mixture...too much oil as it can cause hard starting and excessive smoking.
If the chainsaw/trimmer is over a couple of years old, then I 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.
The diaphgram may look good and flexible, but it can be deceiving and not act as a fuel pump as it should because it has become too hard and will cause hard starting,start and run and shut off, etc.
When you clean your carburetor, I recommend that you use a laquer thinner type cleaner to clean and dissolve the laquer build-up in the float and needle jet passages.
Be sure to remove all plastic and rubber parts before using the laquer thinner because it can dissolve the plastic parts and render them unuseable.
Be sure to use COMPRESSED AIR to blow out all the fuel and air passages.The higher air pressure is needed to blow some of the trash/debris from the fuel or air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Keep in mind that the float (if you have one) for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instructions you get with the carburetor kit, or you could also ask the parts man that you get your kit from.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their original position before you started.
Note:
The little spring inside of the carburetor goes under the float arm.
That is where your fuel inlet needle/float valve is located...on the arm at the end.
Normally there is a small indention in the carburetor base and a small protrusion on the underneath of the float arm where the spring will be in the right postion for installation.
The spring will set in the indention and you will install the float arm with the needle/float valve and float rod into position over top of the spring,you will push down until it is in position and then you can tighten the screw that holds the float arm assembly in position.
Once you have your carburetor cleaned/rebuilt that should solve your problem.
Please take time to rate me

Will stop running when the triger is pulled


Most 2 cycle engines have 3 choke setting. Place it in 1 and pull until I starts then it will die. Then place in 2 and pull again. It should start and run a little rough for a few seconds. Once it is running flip it to 3 and go. If it still dies when you give it gas try running in the #2 position. The problem is the air/fuel mixture is too high. Locate the screw on the carb and turn to the left to reduce the amount of gas. Hope this helps

Does not have any compression! Was running fine, then gradually started slowing down and loosing power and died. Tried to start it and noticed when you pull on starter rope there was no compression.


Sounds like the rings are gone. Either that or the connecting rod has broken. Probably the rings. You can get a replacement part from a local small engine shop. Good luck...Lee

My Troy-Bilt TB70SS starts fine,but it will only rotate the spool if it`s in half choke.If i put it on run it stops rotating.


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 ****!

New TB70SS used one hour run great started easy. Following week started on run fine for 10 minutes it became sluggish and died. Has not started since. Yes new gas correct mix. check spark arrester for...


If the trimmer is new and giving you these problems, then take it back to the retailer and either trade for another one, or pay a little extra for a 4 cycle. The 4 cycle is a little hard to start too, but will run out perfectly and no more mixing of oil.

The higher price tag is well worth the time, effort and aggrivation experienced versus a 2 cycle engine.

I hope this helps.

New kit installed. Will start then dies and will not restart. How to adjust carbuerator on my tb70ss?


First, check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks.

If they are o.k., then you will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb. cleaner. Make sure the small screen in the carb. is free of debris. You should be able to see daylight through it. Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.
