Question about Troy-Bilt 4-Cycle Curve Shaft Gas String Trimmer #41ADT41C966

1 Answer

Trot Bilt 4 cycle weed eater catches, but wont run.

Pulled apart the carb, cleaned it, did it again, found a gasket/screen with junk in it, cleaned it. Now it will catch for just a second,but wont run. I cleaned every port I can find. Acts like a fuel problem, because when I prime the bulb, it will run for just a second. Some background: cleaned off the contacts on the spark plug, new air filter, good gas. This weed eater has seperate gas and oil. 4 cycle. I was running and weed eating when it just slowed down and quit. I found some sediment in the gas that I traced to the washers on the fuel filter, and have been working from there.

25cc weed eater, will only idle


double check your carb as it should have a screw for the fuel mixture. some carbs have a plastic piece over them that only lets you move the screws so far if you need more extreme adjustment they pull out about a 1/8th of a inch then you can turn in then push it back in, same principals as making a flame on a bic lighter bigger, if you cant find it take some pics of your carb and email them to me @ prerunnerrngr@yahoo.com and i will point them out

Weed eater won't run


Sounds like you may just have a dirty carburetor.

Youwill need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carb.cleaner.Make sure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to seedaylight through it.)

Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152),to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.

If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.

If you need further assistance, just let me know.

My gas Craftsman Ez Fire 25cc 17 inch weed eater wont start!


The carb must be cleaned. take the carb off put it on a work bench and pull it apart layer by layer... be careful as there is a spring that will jump out. pull all of the gaskets off and clean behind them. make sure all of the passages are clean. Use brake cleaner from the auto parts store! do not use carb and choke cleaner as the gaskets will instantly expand and be useless. there is also a brass cylinder in the carb you need to remove it and clean it well. There should be a very small hole in the center. put it back together and you should be good to go

Troy Bilt TB 465SS Pony 4 cycle weed trimmer won't start


Sounds like you need to take the carb. apart and clean it. I like to use a Den Tek Brush, (used for cleaning teeth), to clean the small ports in carb. they work great for this job. Make sure to either clean or replace the small screen in thcarb. as well.

No Gas to Primer Bulb


It sounds like the carburetor needs cleaned. Take the carb. apart and clean it with carb. cleaner. Use a Den Tech Brush, (used for cleaning teeth), they are perfect for cleaning the small ports in carb. If that still doesn't work, you may need to buy a carb. kit for your weed eater. If so, replace the gaskets and valve needle, and also make sure to replace the small screen. this should all come in the new carb. kit.

Weed eater does not start


I had a similar problem with my troy-bilt weedeater. I tried replacing the sparkplug, replaced the fuel filter and etc. It still would not start. I looked at the troubleshooting guide in the owner's manual and it listed a possible cause as a clogged spark arrestor. I cleaned out the spark arrestor by taking it off and cleaning it with a wire brush. Now it runs like brand new again. I hope this helps.
