    You need a new control cable. It's probably not stretched, just corroded inside and won't slide enough. What is the model # on the deck close to the bottom of the handle and I can tell you the cable part #.

Check to see of where the canles connect to the linkage, there are usually thumb nuts you can adjust similiar to that of the brakes on a bicycle handle bar.

My new 10.5 HP 30in. Troybilt riding mower just quit running after trying to go in reverse and forgetting to disengage blades.Cannot get it restarted for anything. Help?


One or more safety switches are not working. Engine off, put it in neutral, disengage the blades. Now sit on it, and try to start it. If that doesn't start the engine then take a multi meter and check for continuity on all the switch locations.

Troybilt push mower will not start


Might be bad gas. Empty tank refill with fresh gas with Stabile. Might have to remove carb bowl clean and reinstall. Flush out tank with a little gas before refilling, disconnect fuel line to flush.

Husband says thinks it is starter cable has stretched and needs new one...does this sound correct and how to install it on Troybilt self-propelled push mower?


I'd love to help you, but I think you need to rephrase your question. There is no "Starter Cable" on this mower. Sorry.
