SOURCE: troy bilt mower won't stay running to cut lawn

You may want to check the gas cap to see if it clogged with dirt. If the gas cap is clear, you more than likely have a carburetor problem. If you need tips on carb. cleaning, feel free to ask.

SOURCE: Troy-Bilt Briggs & Stratton 550 restarting

Troy, Unless you are using old fuel (it breaks down after 1 week) it sounds like you have a faulty spark plug. Replace this first, drain any old fuel and replace with fresh fuel (premium unleaded). A faulty plug will work one minute but then fail like you have described.

SOURCE: front wheels lock up when pull mower backwards

Typically self-propelled mowers are propelled using the front wheels, which only turn forward. Pulling the mower back while the front wheels are turning will damage the drive gears. It's best to raise the front wheels slightly off the ground before pulling back.

SOURCE: how do you tighten the control cable on a Troy Bilt mower?

Usually near the end of the cable there is a squeeze clamp on the side of the cable. Losen the mounting screw (DO NOT remove it) and slide the cable in the direction that will expose more cable. Tighten the mounting screw and test the control. It is really pretty simple.

Thanks for using FixYa.

SOURCE: where is the oil plug located on a troy bilt mower?

Tilt it over so the oil cap is on the bottom...it'll rest on the handle and hang there...put a container under the oil fill pipe...something shallow like a glad sandwich container works perfect...get a paper towel, and reach under an unscrew the cap...all the oil runs out into the container...it'll fit !!

Wipe the dipstick off clean, and put it aside...take this time to look at your blade on the other side...it "should look" similar to wood chisel at the last 5 inches of the blade on both ends followed by a wing under it...BTW: their $12 bucks new...and worth it !!

Go back and look at the container and be sure the oil is finished draining...take the lid for the container and snap it on and move it out of the way (no body likes an oil spill)...wipe off the oil fill spout, and re-fill...takes about a half a quart, so don't over fill it !!!

your done...

I am guessing you did not run a gas stabilizer through the unit. Start the unit and run it while spraying carburetor cleaner in spurts into the carburetor. What has happened is that the small amount of gas has dried or what we call varnished causing internal parts to stick. If that fails, removed carb and disassemble and clean, reinstall.

Troy-Bilt Mower is running real slow like its clogged dont know not a mower expert, need help please before I take it to a mower expert.


If you can, check the flywheel key. If it is bent but not quite broken, it can cause slow operation. To do that, take the starter off the top of mower. Take off the big nut on the flywheel. Find a nut of the same size and place on the thread you took the nut off, but only a few turns. Hold the flywheel with one hand, lifting a little, and tap the nut with a hammer with the other hand. The flywheel should come off. Look at the key, it holds the flywheel to the shaft. If it is bent or broken, that is the problem. Replace it and go about your day! Good luck...Lee
