That is a safety feature with a lot of engines, there is a reset somewhere, call your Troy built dealer and ask him, I'm sure he will help. I will be a simple fix.

My troy bilt riding mower wont crank


Check your battery and see if its fully charged. I had a battery that the charger said was fully charged but a cell was dead. Take it to a battery store and they will check it free of charge.
If that's not the problem check all the battery cables on both ends for being tight and clean. If that's not the problem you could have a bad starter.

DOES TROY BUILT PONY MODEL # 394358 HAVE A OIL FILTER 17.5 HR 42" CUT


Your owner's manual indicates to change the oil and replace the oil fitler on page 19 as part of the regular maintenance schedule. Whether or not your exact engine application does indeed have the filter is the engine manufacturer's option. Here is your manual.

My lawn mower is trying to turn over but won't completely. we have replaced the starter, battery, and spark plug. why will this not crank and turn over?


It probably has a faulty starter solenoid which won't allow full amperage to the starter. Also the valve clearances need checking because if they are too loose the built in decompressor will not work and allow the engine to crank over. Regards Phil

How to change the oil in my troy built pont where is the drain plug


Not sure what a pont is, or what motor you have, but on some of the Troy built small engines from Honda the geniuses designed the motor with no drain plug. You have to tilt or flip the engine over to drain oil out the filler

Troy built lawn mower (riding) won't go full


I did not know riding mower had a gas pedal. I know if you leave the throttle control up all the way the engine will choke out. The pedal you are pushing, I think, is the forward/reverse hydrostatic transmission. You may need a new drive belt. The one you have now may be stretched out.
Good Day.

Oil drain plug


may be under the blade plate under the mower, usually a plug with a quarter inch square drive, you can use a ratchet to loosen it if it is quarter drive, maybe a half inch drive
