you didn't mention the engine but I am assuming it has a B&S v twin ??? check and make sure you have battery voltage at the red wire at the voltage regulator... if yes, suspect it's bad, if not, look for a blown fuse

Everything should then be fine....

SOURCE: lawn boy 2 cycle mower won't start

Replace the spark plug and retry.
If a new plug does not work push the spring button on the bottom of the carburetor to make sure fresh fuel is in the fuel bowl.
if this does not work remove the spark plug and squirt some light oil (like wd 40) right into the spark plug hole; roll the engine over slowly a couple times using the starter rope. put the plug back in and snap the plug wire in place. If the mower now starts after a couple pulls it means the rings are worn, replace the rings.

SOURCE: just bought a 10 year old lawn boy 2 cyl mower fro...

What is the model number of the mower? The picture posted by your question shows the 4 cycle Briggs & Stratton powered mower.

Did you run it for a long time? Five years would allow all gasoline to evaporate, but not the oil. You might have double the oil in the system.

If this is has the Lawn Boy OMC motor, excessive smoking can be caused by:

a worn crankshaft seal

a carbon-fouled muffler

carbon-fouled piston exhaust ports

a defective fuel primer circuit (sometimes disconnecting the primer button hose will stop the smoke ...carb work needed if this is it)

a fouled plug (causes incomplete combustion... and smoke)

weak reed valves (a constantly wet air filter is a sign of this)

Where is drain plug for oil on Troy bilt Tb230

It does not have a drain plug. You can remove the dip stick and tilt the mower to pour out the oil, or you can use one of those hand pump syphon units to pump it out.

Drain sump oil

What kind of oil did they put in? The drain is on the lowest part of the engine, a small plug either in the block or at the end of a pipe, just find a container to fit under there and pull the plug, then fill it back up with the fresh oil. Don't forget the plug!

I have a troy bilt mower with a briggs & stratton engine. How do I change the oil?

There should be a drain plug on the underside of the mower deck. Raise that side of deck, remove the plug and drain the oil. Replace the plug and add new oil. Hope this helped.
