Question about Troy Garden
Troy bilt tuff cut 220 Smart Speed, self propelled drive cable severed (must have been a big rat?). I replaced it, and mower worked great, until it ran out of gas. When I put new gas in, it wouldn't start. Tried changing spark plug. Put it in tight, and tried it in loose. It won't start.
It used to start on the first pull.
It is older, but only used a few times....still has the nice white sticker on the mower deck.

belts usually come off for a few reasons.
They become loose...stretch or the tensioner moves, Make sure that none of the tightening bolds are slipping. You can dab them with a bit of paint.
when the pulleys are not in alignment or crooked or bent. Eyeball the path from one pulley to another, also make sure the tensioner is in alignment and there are no other obstructions.
good, high quality belts are required, and they must be real drive belts...not regular v belts. If there is a way to watch the belt in operation you can usually see what's going wrong.
On my lawnmower I had to grind some metal away where the belt went from the motor to the transmission. Good luck

SOURCE: Its starts but will cut off
The problem you are having is due to dirt and gunk in the carbeurator. Spray a carbeurator cleaner into the air chamber [remove the air filter] and run it a couple of times then let it sit for two hours while the carbeurator cleaner does its job of dissolving any debris. Then start it up. IF this does it, great, if not repeat the cleaning technique.
If all of this doesn't do it, then the carbeurator will have to be removed and either replaced or rebuilt.

You turn the mower over, remove the blade with a 9/16 or 5/8 socket. There is a bolt holding shroud on, 3/8 or 7/16, there are two screws by the rear wheels, 7/16 that need to be removed. Once the shroud is removed, belt can be removed and new one put on.
