Hey... I have the same problem. It will start if I put in on #1, then it will continue to run if I put it on #2... but will eventually stop. It likes to idle between #1 and #2... but it will not run full power on any speed. Relativey brand new. Piece of junk and I will never buy a Troy Built anything even again!

Sorry I could not help with your problem. I can usually fix anything, but this thing is a piece of ****!

Weedeater repair


Its possible that the drive shaft is broken or the end of the shaft is worn where it hooks into the gear head. The trimmer head has a hex fitting that meshes with the gear assembly in order for it to turn, its possible the hex is worn on the cutting head from usage, which would require replacing the outer spool assembly. Here is a link to a parts breakdown. http://www.partstree.com/parts/?lc=troy_bilt&mn=TB70SS+41ADT70C711&dn=769014720002

TROY BILT TB 70 TRIMMER-NEW CARB KIT-NEW PLUG. NEW FILTER- NEW GAS--STARTS FINE IN CHOKE #1 POSITION- RUNS IN POSITION #2- WHEN SELECTOR IS MOVED TO POSITION #3 ENGINE DIES- ALMOST LIKE FUEL...


If you rebuilt the carb did you turn any of the screws on the carb while cleaning or take out, you might have just the low idle screw closed a little to much open half turn and see what happens. If you look at the carb where needle screws are located on the side,if you have two screws it will be stamped with an " L " and?or an " H " next to each screw. If you only have one screw then turn that one, to left to get more fuel. Good Luck...

The string on my Troybilt tb70ss just keeps coming out of the spool when I try to weedeat. I am pretty sure I have followed the directions. What is the problem?


there should be a small hole to put string in on center of spool.
you might be winding the line the wrong way around try winding line in other direction.

Troy-Bilt TB70SS will not start


Hi. Go to any auto parts store and get a can of starter fluid. Have a helper squirt a little into the air cleaner while u start it up. Then continue to squirt the starter fluid to keep it running until the engine sounds good again. J.

Cannot get the housing off so that I can change the pull cord on my troy bilt tb70ss grass trimmer


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 TBP6040 XP 4 cycle weed eater with the spring assist starting. The pull cord broke and I am trying to replace it but I can't seem to get the cord to go all the way back in. I need help....


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.
