From any mower shop that sells parts for the make of engine used
( honda, B&S, Tecumseh, etc ) all you will need is the engine make and serial number to identify the parts

On our Troy built we can't start it unless we use jumper cables to touch battery terminal and then the starter

check switch for corrosion make sure all post male and the female plug are clean. Check power to switch with 12 volt test light if you have power to switch check your soilinoid there is one wire that activates your selenoid to send power to starer. .i would guess bad selenoid.

How come my troy snowblower stalls when I move the choke switch from choke to run ?

Most likely issue is dirty carburetor. Dissasemble and clean with carb cleaner or sea foam (let parts soak in it, if possible), reassemble. Could also be head gasket, but less likely.

The ground broke off of the electric starter of my troy-bilt storm 2480 snow blower. Is there a way to fix it other than buying the $230 dollar replacement part?

You could just connect it as usual but provide a wire with an alligator clip on one end and the other end connected to the bare ground wires in the outlet box whenever you need to start the snowblower. An alternative ground location that is often easier for homeowners to access is to connect it to a cold water copper pipe, the external, visible ground point near the electric service, water main, cable TV, telephone, etc. Some states permit iron gas lines to serve as ground too. Check with your wiring inspector or local electrician to see what is acceptable in your town. Whichever way you choose to access ground, add this wire without disconnecting any of the others.

Once you have it wired up, the procedure is pretty simple really - you would first connect the alligator clip end of the ground wire to an unpainted, solid part of the snowblower's engine, starter motor or frame. Then plug in the power cord the way you did before the ground was broke off (orient the cord / plug as if the ground were still present). Press and hold the start button as usual until it starts. Once running, remove the 120 volt power cord first - then disconnect the grounded alligator clip. The ground clip must always be first on - last off. This way, at no time is the snowblower ungrounded when it is connected to 120 volts.

Of course, some folks will say you don't have to have a ground connected. True, it will work / start without the ground wire - but you do give up a bit of safety by ignoring it. The ground is to protect people from electrical faults - its presence does NOT effect the ability of the starter to function. I wouldn't dream of spending $230 to replace the starter just because it is missing ground wire (because it is so easy to get around the problem with my simple little fix) but I would only start it w/o the grounded alligator clip wire if I had too. For maximum protection, you should be connecting the snowblower to a ground fault protected outlet when using the electric start regardless of whether or not you're using the ground wire alligator clip.

Good luck!

I have a troy built snowblower that has sat for 7 years.

hi roaddoctor86; I suspect that your carb is the source of your problem in the fuel system. I always drain the fuel in my 2 cycle and even 4 cycle engines and then start them and run them dry, before I put them up for the winter/. I would suggest you drain the tank or at least take most of the gas out and then add a can of gas treatment/solvent and see if that helps. Something like Heet I think is one product.

Hope this helps good Luck Loriongh ps Please leave a rating if appropriate Thanks
