SOURCE: Troy-Bilt Chipper Shredder won't start

It takes good gas, good spark, and good air for a gasoline engine to run well. The next thing I would do is put a new air filter in it.

SOURCE: Describe your Troy Troy-Bilt® Briggs and

I Have a MTB chipper shredder, model 24A-464B062 (sometime between 2000 and 2002), which appears to be a Lowes model. In my case, I left the shredded blade on and backed off the main bolt holding on the impeller so that about 1/4 of an inch of threads were showing. I then attached my harbor freight automotive pulley puller (Pittsburgh - item#66868), with its shaft pushing on the head of the main bolt and its arms hooked onto the shredder blade. I then torqued the puller hard until the shredder blade was bending pretty good. The impeller did not come off. I then used a cold chisel and a hammer to pound around the center cylinder of the impeller (there are two small spots where this can be reached). Still the impeller did not come off. I then used my plumbing torch (with MAPP gas), to heat up the center of the impeller, for about 5 minutes. Still the impeller did not come off. So I returned to the cold chisel and hammer, and after a few hits, the impeller popped loose. I removed the automotive pulley puller (be careful, it is hot), and then the main bolt, and the impeller came right off. After inspection, I noticed that there is no key and that the impeller is attached by a press fit taper. So it looks like what I did is most likely what everybody else would have to do for my model.

Why won't the pull cord budge?

My first idea is that the engine was shut off before the chipper or the shredder had not finished. First remove the spark plug. Next remove the covers on the chipper area and the shredder area. Now remove all material from both areas.Replace all covers, put the sparkplug back and try it.

My chipper shredder lawn vac will not start

If it has set with fuel in it for 2 months or more the fuel has spoiled. Drain the fuel and put on fresh fuel. There still could be old fuel in the fuel line so spray some starting fluid in the carb to pull the old fuel through the line. Also check for spark. I have a spark checker that is put between the spark plug and the spark plug wire. There is a "light" inside it that is much more easy to see than just the spark at the plug. It cost about 5 bucks. I got mine at an auto parts store.

Engine will not fire or try to start on my Troy-Bilt Super Tomahawk 2 in 1 Chipper/Shredder, 8 h.p., Tecumseh engine. Getting good spark; changed to new gas; no air blockages found.

If your getting spark no doubt its a fuel problem. Does the inside of the cylinder look wet when you removed the plug. The seals in carb go bad all the time. You need a rebuild kit most likely. Very cheap an easy to do. If its a bowl carb it should be done. Should solve your problem. Starting problems are no spark or no fuel. Carb leak an seal get weaker all the time. Gas the way its made today eats the seals away.

REMOVE THE SPARK PLUG. You now can safely take apart the unit to remove the covers over the chipper and shredder blades and remove the material stuck in the blades.

Tecumseh chipper shredder-vacuum After two years cleaned carb. No spark What do I do next?

How have you determined that there is no spark? Have you used a type of spark tester?
What is the condition of the plug. Brown or dark brown is OK. Black or silver is NOT Ok.
If you do not have a spark tester, remove the plug, and with it connected to the wire,
find a portion of metal around the cylinder that you can ground it on, and then pull the rope.
If the plug is black, you may see spark, but you should replace the plug.
*** PLEASE NOTE ; if there is excess fuel in the cylinder or on spark plug, it can catch fire, so be carefull to cover the hole with a heavy rag so that any fuel cannot be exposed to spark plug durning test !!!!

That age of unit should have electronic ignition, so if there is a 'no spark' condition, I would double check safety switches that are found on snouts, shrouds, bags, discharge chute, ect.
Get back with me on how this issue works out.
thanks, rwvanlue

MTD yardman chipper wont start get spark need manual

I am successful too at using the starting fluid in the carb or directly into the clinder. That is how I start my MTD 5.5hp chipper. My problem is I have to hold down the primer bulb to keep it running. If not, the engine will stall.

I have a Huskee chipper/mulcher that won't start.

Engines need 2 things to run. Fuel and spark. Pull the spark plug, re-connect it to the wire and hold the base of it near the motor. Like about 1/8" near. Pull the cord (you'll probably need a helper). See a spark? yes? Ok that eliminates that.
Fuel is where the problem usually is. Is the fuel in it from previous seasons? Did you put stabilizer in it? Dump the fuel, put in a little fresh fuel and pull over and over until your fresh fuel can get into the carb. Still not popping? Your carb is likely clogged from the residue left from stale fuel. The easy way to deal with that is to replace it, but that can be $60 or more. The next easiest way is to get a carb kit and replace all the gaskets and parts it provides (that apply to your particular carb) while cleaning it along the way. The harder but cheapest way is to take it apart and clean it, trying to re-use all the parts. If you could do this you would not be posting here. If you are the put-in-gas-and-oil-and-pull-the-cord type, bring it to a shop.
