If you know for sure that it's not getting fire, then I would take it back to where you purchased it. It sounds as if it has a bad ignition module.

I have a weed eater trimmer that wont start. ben sitting for a couple years and i replaced the fuel lines andcleaned the carb. still nothing, what do i do?


Try cleaning the spark plug, make sure it sparks. Put some fresh gasoline in the tank, check start stop switch.
A easy way to check whether the problem is related to carb or not is:
remove the spark plug put some fresh gasoline in the cylinder, put the spark plug back
pull the starter a few times if it starts for a few seconds it means is related to carb.
Be carefully when handling gasoline.

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.

Trimmer won't start after following instructions


Might need a new spark plug if it's more than a year old. I had mine a year and after the winter couldn't get it to start. Replaced the spark plug and it's good as new.

Troy-Built TB70SS, 1 year old, will not start even after carb cleaning


check to see that the kill button is not stuck in the contacting position, and if it is, try to get it unstuck. WD40 should help. if it's not, then disconnect the kill wires. now try starting it. if it still doesnt start, then the spark generator is bad. if this is the case, you'll need a new trimmer, or have a small engine mechanic replace the generator. i think its called the coil, not sure at the moment it's 4:00 am for me. anyways, whichever is cheaper is best choice.

Trimmer will not start.


Yes. Your carbeurator is gummed up. Get some new gasoiline and add some carbeurator cleaner to it, usually one ounce per gallon. Dump the fuel u have in there and put in the new fuel.

Also, get some spray carb. cleaner, remove the air filter and put a couple of squirts into the air intake chamber. Then start it.

Finally if it still won't start, use a squirt of starter fluid to get things going and get the carbeurator cleaning into the system.
