I have a Troy-bilt tb30r riding mower. Was cutting the grass fine, I turned it off for a minute and it wont start back up. Any clue? I've checked gas, oil, plugs, and battery.

Did you disengage the mowing deck when you shut it off? If the mowing deck is engaged, it will not start.

yes they have a charging system, not like a car but a charging system one the less. as i said before either under or around the flywheel. some newer mowers also have an electronic regulator.

Make sure that when you check the oil that the mower has sat I say for at least 5mins. Your mower might have an oil sencer. If not I think it might be the coil gettin hot and shorting out.

many of these units use the starter motor as the generator to re-charge battery. check voltage regulator & wiring.

SOURCE: craftsman riding lawn mower won t cut grass

Does it die when you attempt to engage the cutting deck? If so the you might have a clogged fuel filter, bad gas, dirty air filter, bad spark plug.
Or the mower engage switch may be faulty. They are located in different places on different mowers. But should be attached somewhere along the main pivot of the engage lever. Let me know if you need more assistance. Good Luck!!

Troy-bilt riding mower won't move in forward or reverse


I had a similar problem with my TroyBilt 50 inch zero turn mower. Was cutting grass when it stopped going either forward or backward even though it would start and the PTO would move the cutting blades. Turned out the tensioner spring for the belt that drives the motors near the rear wheels had gone missing. Searched the yard where I had cut and moved the machine but couldn't find it. A new one cost me about $7.50. Put the new one on and it worked fine.

It may not be charging due to a bad connection to the battery or to the generator on the engine. The generator on the engine may be going or has gone bad.

I hope this helps.

Our Troy bilt lawn tractor wont start. It seems like a short


Unless something catastrophic has happen internally, fuel and spark are about all you need. If you are sure of the fuel supply, pull the spark plug lead and let it arc to ground so you can check ignition health. You should have a bright blue spark visible. If you do, then pull the plug and replace it; the insulator may be cracked and robbing some of the high voltage. If it still doesn't start, you may have flooded it and when this happens to me, I make sure no spilled gasoline is present but I then pull the plug and use a charcoal or fireplace lighter and place it in front of the sparkplug hole. It should pop and help exhaust the excess fuel.

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.
