    I am having the same problem. After about 20 tries, and leaning it backwards once it sputtered to life I managed to get it warmed up and it ran but the motor seems to run at a lower speed than my first use.

SOURCE: can't get the nut off.. is there a secret to blade removal

Hi these are usually the opposite way to which the blade turns but you may have to use a rattle gun to remove this. If you have a look at the thread you should be able to determine which way it comes off. Just remember to fix the blade so it wont turn and take your fingers off.

SOURCE: troy-bilt gas edger trencher won't start. Spark

Remove spark plug and pour 5mls or one teaspoon of premixed gas in the engine. Depress trottle to full with choke on "run", pull starter about 10 to 12 times If it starts and run for a while and then shuts off your carb needs servicing. If not remove muffler and look for a spark arrestor screen. This could be plugged up with soot. If it is, replace and this would have been your problem. While the muffler is off slowly pull starter rope and examine the piston if gas and oil oozes backwards as the piston moves to the top then the piston and rings need replacing.

You probably have found the solution by now I would assume... TB won't tell you this because they want you to buy their stuff..
You probably are looking at the 0.08" diameter that's just a bit smaller than the 3/32". Hope this helps....

SOURCE: problem with my B&D LE500 lawn edger. Will run

Check the switch, it could burnout. The trigger switch made on this model are very cheap and can not supply current to motor for a long time without burning out. So it could be that switch has melted, and plastic is covering parts of the terminal.

Starts up when choked then dies. Has a new carb and using 4 cycle fuel that is fresh. Ran great till 3 weeks ago then this.


I just went through the same problem with my Yardworks trimmer that is identical to this. If it starts when chocked after priming but stall immediately would usually indicate that there is no fuel getting to the engine. I also found that switching to non-ethanol premium fuel made all the difference in the world.

I can't get it started and I"m following directions on side of machine.


Those direction are not accurate all the time, I usually prime mine 4-6 times. put mine on full choke with the trigger pressed and pull 1 time any more will usually flood it, If you have the choke that kicks off after you press the trigger, put the choke back on to half and pull the cord pressing the trigger, Then pull the cord until it starts without pressing the trigger. As before if you press and hold the trigger during the start it will flood these trimmers..This should start the trimmer. You may have to let the trimmer set for about 15 min if it was flooded.

Hard start tb475ss troy built weed wacker when i close the cold start lever it starts but its 75 degrees out its like the primer ball is inop but i see fuel moving through the lines when priming did not...


These 4 cycle trimmers need to be primed 10x before a cold start. The bulb will feel *firmer* on the last two or three depressions and you'll know that the carb is primed.

Full choke and and full throttle on first tug should see it hit once with a puff of smoke. Second start attempt should be in choke position two (half choke) and with full pressure on the throttle. Should rev to life on start attempt. Let the engine IDLE for 30 seconds, moving the choke to off at the end of the waiting period. Let engine idle to warm another full minute with no choke, then set to work!

Troybuilt cultivator/edger won't start


There are two starting procedures - initial starting after long storage or running out of gas calls for squeezing the bulb (note - squeezing the sides together - not pressing the bulb in) 6 times, poulling cord up to 10 tiimes, rapid pull. If that doesn;'t work, wait 15 minutes, do not press bulb, but pull cord 10 times again.

Normal starting after first use and w/gas in the tank calls for 2 presses of the bulb.

I found that I was not priming the engine well, but also it should not be as much of a pain as it is. I still am successful in starting on every third attempted use, get frustrated and say %*&% it most of the time. These things are made by MTD (for Troy-Bilt) and that, in my experience, stands for Machine Typically Dead.

Hope this helps.
