SOURCE: Troy Bilt Self Propelled Lawnmower drive belt

belts usually come off for a few reasons.
They become loose...stretch or the tensioner moves,  Make sure that none of the tightening bolds are slipping.  You can dab them with a bit of paint.
when the pulleys are not in alignment or crooked or bent.  Eyeball the path from one pulley to another, also make sure the tensioner is in alignment and there are no other obstructions.
good, high quality belts are required, and they must be real drive belts...not regular v belts.  If there is a way to watch the belt in operation you can usually see what's going wrong.
On my lawnmower I had to grind some metal away where the belt went from the motor to the transmission.  Good luck

SOURCE: Little spark

check the gap on your plug. .030 is what it should be. also make sure that your
kill cable is working properly and not grounding the engine out.
the gap for you magneto should be set to .010 to .012
loosen up the magneto insert a standard business card or 3x5 card
then turn the flywheel so that the magnet on the flywheel pulls the magneto into it. then tight the magneto mounting screws down. try spark now. always use fresh gas. -no-water- if in doubt throw it out.
gas is BAD after only 30 days.

SOURCE: ENGINE KEEP'S DIEING, PUSH PRIMER BULB AND STARS,

Carburator issue. If you have some mechanical abilty you can pull the carb off else take it to a shop. You probably left gas in it off season. Either the main jet is clogged or the float valve is stuck. Either way, remove the carb, tae off the bottom cover and clean everything out with gum out or a carb cleaner. reassemble and eveything should be fine.

SOURCE: How do I replace the primer bulb on my lawnboy

You must remove the engine cover (three torx screws) then you can pull the line off the plastic bulb disk and remove it from the cover by pushing the side clips.
Put silicone on the bulb disk and force the bulb on to the disk. I had to use a vice to hold the disk, it is a very tight fit. When you get the bulb on the disk, reinstall it in the engine cover and reattach the hoses. The gas tank hose will probably need to be pushed on to the carberator and the gas tank also. This is hard work but is the only way you can instal the bulb.

Where is the primer bulb o my toro lawnmower


Typically a primer is only used on 2 cycle engines not on lawnmower engines, so it would not have a primer bulb.

Yardman snowblower won't self-propel


Do not start to do this but put the blower in gear like you would run to drive its self and try to turn the wheels by hand and if they turn easily then you may have a shear pin that is broken or missing in the drive pulley.
Just a thought.

Can't find a replacement belt for Scotts Self propelled


It should be a MURRAY part number 37X84 ( NOTE: that is read 37 "ex" 84 NOT 37 "by" 84, it is a part number not a measurement) but without knowing the exact model number of your lawnmower, I can't say for certain.
