We have a Troy-Bilt chipper and every time we use it, we have to change the spark plug in order for it to start.


Check the gap on your plug when you put a new one and then check it after you run it normally. If it is smashed check your piston for a contact point where it was hitting the plug.

Check your manual for the correct plug type. They my have put the wrong on in and if you just keep putting in the same plug...

Call troy-bilt they are pretty good about service issues.

I have a troy bilt trimmer...it is getting gas,spark,compression,and i rebuilt the carb.... what else could be the problem


You have all the elements of a running engine. Final items to check:

1. Muffler. Can become clogged with insect homes or carbon deposits. Restricts back pressure and it will not run or will run poorly.
2. Your spark could be insufficient in which your Ignition Module/CDI would need to be replaced.
3. Insure that the 4-screws holding the carburetor holder / lower crankcase are tight and that the gasket is in good condition.
4. Spark plug gap may be too large.

Insure the engine will run by putting about a tsp., of premix down the spark plug hole and pull over. If you are not getting it to run for about 5 seconds, you likely have an electrical problem at the Ignition module/CDI nothing out sufficient spark. This would likely be cost prohibitive to repair.

I'm betting on the muffler...

How do I clean the fuel line on troy bilt 5hp chipper vac?


unscrew the nut on the bottom of the carburetor and remove the float bowl it must be emptied and cleaned , debree and water gets into the bowl and blocks of fuel flow reinstall the bowl and start, some carbs don't have a float bowl requiring you to remove the gas tank and carb which is a more involved cleaning.

10 hp Troy Built chipper pull start frozen


If a branch was already being chipped when it ran out of gas...you must clear the hopper of any chunks of wood in it. Pull the plug wire and use a metal pry bar to dislodge any pieces of wood. when the flywheel runs free, put the plug wire back on and the choke on. Try it now!!!

MTD yardman chipper wont start get spark need manual


I am successful too at using the starting fluid in the carb or directly into the clinder. That is how I start my MTD 5.5hp chipper. My problem is I have to hold down the primer bulb to keep it running. If not, the engine will stall.

Troy-Bilt Chipper Shredder won't start


It takes good gas, good spark, and good air for a gasoline engine to run well. The next thing I would do is put a new air filter in it.
