Edger/trimmer I have a troy bilt 31cc 2-cycle edger/weed trimmer. As I was pulling on the cord to start it, it went up half way and that is as far as it will go. Is there a solution to this problem?

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.

I just had this same issue. I found out that you have to take the cord out of the handle then put the spool in. You then rotate the spool back in and align the spool with the spring and fish out the cord which will put a small amout of tension on it. You keep the tension on it and put the handle back on.

SOURCE: cannot get the housing off so that I can change

If you are holding the unit where the drive cable goes in, there is a screw in there. It is a #15 or 20 TORX screwdriver. Take out the screw and it will allow you to get to the starting spool. Good luck...Lee

I have a troy bilt string weed cutter 27cc TB21Ec and need to know the oil gas ratio. I just read that it takes straight gas but my cap on the weed cutter where you put the gas says gas/oil mixture


Don't know that exact trimmer, but I always run 40:1 in all my trimmers, chainsaws, etc. That is 3.2 oz. of 2 cycle oil to one gallon of gasoline. I rebuild these machines daily and run that mix in everyting, except when it's actually specified on the machine.

Only used my trimmer 5 times since I had, trimmed my hedges 2 times last year & twice this year. After done doing my hedges, I put on my weed trimmer when finished & holding my trimmer in idle it...


Some disassembly may be required to get to the starter/recoil unit to fix this. The unit has Torx head fasteners and some level of mechanical skill is involved. Check your warranty?
