Take the plastic cover off that covers the muffler and cylinder head. I've had 2 cylinder heads crack. The trimmer still ran but had little to no power and would not throttle up. First head cracked at the head bolts. The second one cracked above the bolts. The side that has the carb and fuel tank is harder to see and you must remove the carb and fuel tank to check. Also I've read online that this trimmer has a problem with the fuel line cracking at the bulb and in the tank.

Husqvarna weed eater starts , but blows alot of smoke & then stalls out


Rod, Carb. may need adjusted, try loosening gas cap and start to see if cap vent plugged, there is a in tank fuel filter that you could fish out and remove to see if it is plugged. If still not running remove muffler and clean spark arrester screen, if screen plugged the trimmer will do this.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

I have a Troy Bilt 4 cycle trimmer, TB475SS. The small fuel line in the gas tank has come off. I is about 6" long with a filter at the end. The trimmer can not **** any gas. How can I reattach it...


i would suggest to change all you fuel lines. troybilt uses specific fuel lines that they sell. you cant use your regular tygon fuel lines.

Troybilt trimmer primer bulb collapses. it will start occasionally but will only run a few minutes.i have replaced the primer bulb and gas lines and still have the same problems.


it should have a small vent in the fule tank cap if its blocked the primer bulb will be sucked in as the fule pump can **** any fule from the tank
check the tank cap first,,,,,

What is the fuel line size for Troy Bilt TB525CS Trimmer?


Yes, something special to know. If the new fuel line is going into the gas tank, be sure to cut a steep angle on the end of the line going into the gas tank. This will allow enough of the line to get into the tank where you will be able to grab it thru the gas fill opening with needle nose pliers and pull it thru.

Troybilt cultivator/edger starts, but dies under load


yes if it is a 4 cycle
with trimmer LEVEL Take out the plug and the oil level should be at the bottom of the threads where you took the cap off.
sae 30 weight is the oil to use
It can be a problem if you have no oil in the crankcase.
Be sure your stop button is where it belongs and go thru the procedures listed on trimmer to start it
fresh gas and if it is a 4 cycle you need not to mix oil and gas for this trimmer

My TB475SS starts and then dies right away. i


It usually wont idle very well when it's cold, Goto #1 on the choke give the rope a couple of "quick" tugs, and then move it to #2 Give it one or 2 more tugs with a little throttle, now it should be running witha little throttle, let it run like that for a minute then move it to #3 kinda still pumping the throttle a little and it should take off fine. If this is the 4 stroke, mine did the same thing until it was broke in good. (About 4-5 uses), now I have to say its more reliable than any 2-stroke I've owned and I use it commercially. 1st or 2nd pull everytime and is ready as soon as it fires! Hope this helps!
