These 4 cycle trimmers need to be primed 10x before a cold start. The bulb will feel *firmer* on the last two or three depressions and you'll know that the carb is primed.

Full choke and and full throttle on first tug should see it hit once with a puff of smoke. Second start attempt should be in choke position two (half choke) and with full pressure on the throttle. Should rev to life on start attempt. Let the engine IDLE for 30 seconds, moving the choke to off at the end of the waiting period. Let engine idle to warm another full minute with no choke, then set to work!

Primer bulb will not prime


Hello Tony Galvan, I had to replace the fuel lines to keep from sucking air when I pressed on the primer bulb. Also, I took the carburetor apart and found the gasket was good by holding it up to the sunlight, no light came through indicating holes in the gasket. Then I took a magnifying glass and looked at the bottom half of the carburetor and noticed that a soft film of what looks like lint from a dryer had accumulated on a screen mesh type of filter. Once I cleaned the debris away, the weed wacker started every time. I pulled with a full choke and partially wants to start. Then moved the choke to half choke and pressed on the throttle fully and pulled, it started! But you must at least hold the throttle close to full until 10 seconds for the engine to warm up. Then move the choke to idle. Hope this helps.

My troy bilt weed wacker started to make a rattling noise from the engine a couple of weeks ago. Now the head has stopped turning, it appears that the drive shaft is not turning.


sounds like something came look in the clutch assembly. you have to remove the shaft from the power head and take a look inside the cover.

Weed wacker runs then quits and won't start for hours


Sounds as if the issue is related to heat. Possible ignition failure when hot. (I see that alot in my shop.) If the unit is new take it to an AUTHORIZED repair shop and it should cost you nothing. Locate your nearest repair shop HERE.

Hope this is helpful,

Troy Bilt TB 465SS Pony 4 cycle weed trimmer won't start


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.

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!
