SOURCE: Hello, My Troy Bilt Snow Thrower will not start

Check for fuel and make sure the fuel shut off valve is open to allow fuel flow. If you left your gas in for the summer, it may have gone bad and caused your carburetor to clog up. A cleaning will be required.

SOURCE: I have a Troy bilt


You need to remove the carburetor float bowl and clean it. The needle and seat also need to be cleaned. The best thing is to totaly remove the carb. and soak it in a commercial/professional strength cleaner.

Your problem is fuel related, but just to make sure, remove the spark plug and spray some carburetor cleaner in the hole, replace the plug and give it a pull. If it fires up then quits..... The fuel system is to blame.

Hope this helps, Matt

SOURCE: Need to find correct spark plug for Troy-Bilt

Several engines were available, you need to look for the number on your current plug - easiest method.

otherwise, you will need to give the motor manufacturer and nameplate info (Tecumseh SnowKing 8HP?)

Brand new wont start

Hi Jim:
I would not hesitate in contacting the sales company and asking for some coaching. Trying to do anything that is not in the "Owners manual" for initial startup could void your warranty.

Snow thrower starts then shuts down after a few minutes

Hmmm... THAT sounds like you have an obstruction (ice???) in the fuel line or in the bottom of the tank.
