Question about Troy Bilt 5.5hp Self Propelled Mower

1 Answer

We just got a new mower. The 1st we used it it

We just got a new troy mower. The 1st we used it it started right away. It has got worse since we have had it 6 weeks today I can not even get it to start. We have had it in the shop once already. This is ridiculous what is the problem. We have already been told new gas is a must. We have done that.

Depending what type of carburetor is on the mower, it may need to be rebuilt or a new diaphragm to help pump fuel. Plus check replacing the air filter, If it is paper filter, change it, If it is foam clean it out with soap and water and dry it out before putting it back in.
Also try a product called "Seaform" in your gas, you can get it at an automotive supply store.

Clean air filter and replace spark plug. If it is wet when you pull it out let it sit and dry out before putting new one in.

Mower Running Very Poorly


Before I got into the carburetor, I would let all the oil burn out. It's mostly in the muffler and no, that didn't hurt the cylinder/rings. I would put a new sparkplug in as that one is oil fouled. See how it runs. I would change the oil to make sure no fuel seeped into the crankcase. It may need a carb cleaning, especially if you weren't using a fuel stabilizer (such as STA-BIL).

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!
