SOURCE: pull-start rope won't pull

This has happened several times for me and is usually caused by a peice of word jamed in the input hopper and half cut by the blades. Always make sure there is no wood in the input chute before stopping motor. remove the collector bag and use a long pry bar to reverse the flywheel. if this moves backwards you may then be able to remove the peice of wood jammed in the blades thru the input chute. Long Skinny arms is required to reach down the chute. Use a Flashlight to see if this is your problem.

The drive belt may be the wrong size if there is no play in the clutch. I have a 10 hp, but there is a common manual for the 10 and 8. My belt is a 4L380.

If you don't see an inline filter then the only filter is a screen in the fuel tank. Sounds like the engine is not getting the fuel it needs. Check the tank and clean as nessesary the screen maybe plugged. If you leave fuel in the tank for long periods of time with out using a fuel stabilizer your carb may need cleaning. Old untreated fuel turns into a varnish like substance. Check your fuel bowl and make sure there is not any dirt in it. You don't mention the engine manufacturer but, mine has the carb adjustment on the bottem of the fuel bowl. I have always used a fuel stabilizer and keep the tank full (filling it with a screened filter) with a added inline filter. In 20 years of my chipper-vacs life never have I had fuel problem.

Sounds defective. Even if you could fix this problem something else is bound to go wrong. Troy-Bilt has a reputation for quality products and I'd suggest, since it's brand new, you get it replaced.

How do I trouble shoot an engine that won't start?

Hi, Frank and the usual suspects are:
1. Ignition Switch not in the "ON" position.
2. Engine Run Switch in the "OFF" position.
3. Discharged battery, check battery terminals for damage or corrosion, check the battery cables at "BOTH" ends for loose, corroded, or broken connectors, "INSIDE" and outside the cable harness, perform connector wiggle test and check cables with an ohmmeter if necessary.
4. Bank angle sensor tripped and ignition/light key switch not cycled to the "OFF" position and then back to the "ON" position.
5. Faulty starter button/switch.
6. Faulty jiffy stand or clutch pull in switch/sensor.
7. Security alarm needs a reset.
8. Starter control circuit, relay, or solenoid faulty.
9. Electric starter shaft pinion gear is not engaging or over-running starter clutch slipping. Good luck and have nice a day.

Electric start on craftsman 9 hp snow thrower won't start engine it sound like it's turning but engine won't start. I can start engine with the pull rope. Started last week with the electric start.

Sounds like you need to replace the gear drive on the starter. If the starter turns but the engine is not turning you have starter problems.

Check the reset button on the GFCI plug to be sure it's in. Once you pull the trigger keep holding it for at least 10 seconds to let the water push the air out and then it should start running.

I have 9 hp Craftsman chipper vac with a manual pull start I want to upgrade to an electric start What is involved? Is there a kit to do this?

If it has the option of electric start all you need to do is puchase the starter from Sears and bolt it on. No to hard at all. But for a more definite answer you need model and serial #'s
