Is it 2 cycle or 4 cycle? Meaning, does it take plain gas, or mixed gas?

Clean the plug, clean the carb with either choke cleaner (4 cycle) or wd-40 (2 cycle) by spraying it into the choke hole after you take off the air filter.

You may also want to spray some of the choke cleaner or wd-40 into the gas tank with the gas to help clean out the whole fuel system.

Only use choke cleaner for 4-cycle regular gas units. For mixed gas, use wd-40 in place of choke cleaner.

Try to start it and then go back and forth from half choke to full choke until it starts picking up.

We have a Troy-Built 21 Inch Self Propelled Mower we bought in August of 2010. We used it 2 times. This year it will not start. It tries then dies as soon as it even makes a starting noise. The problem...


Gas these days has shelf life of about 20 days. The ethanol. Drain old gas clean plug and then try. Also be sure air filter is clean. If that dooesnt take care of it u may have a fuel jet clogged do to old gas or a float sticking in up position. This would require you to remove carb and clean with spray carb cleaner. Also look for obstrucction.

Is this a two speed or a 4 speed ... it is a MTD built Troy or a Troy built Troy or do you know?

There were two versions of Horse built in Troy, New York bu Gardenway ... the two speed and the 4 speed. The two speed used two belts the same size while the 4 speed used one belt on different sized pulleys. There was also a variation that used a slip gear ... this model was built to accomodate other accesories ... log splitter and generator.

If yours is a Troy Built from Garden Way, I can help you. If this one is from MTD, I'm not so sure. Can you ID your machine for me please?

My fujitsu split system blows warm air after about


There is not really enough information here to properly answer your question. I can make a couple of observations for you though. 1. Compressor, yes this could be the problem, but it is not quite that simple. Is the compressor running when the hot air starts to blow? 2. Capacitor, no I don't believe this is the problem, as if it were a capacitor problem, chances are the unit wouldn't even start. 3. Gas leak, again no, if it were a gas leak, then you wouldn't get an hour of good run time when the unit starts up, repeatedly. Hope this helps.

My Troy-Bilt TB70SS starts fine,but it will only rotate the spool if it`s in half choke.If i put it on run it stops rotating.


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 ****!

You may have a pully that is not spining freely. Or you may have a pully that is not positioned straight. Ariens had a problem with that. so your troy built may have the same.

Sounds like the governor is stuck. My pressure washer speeds up when it has to pump. Don't know if yours uses vacuum to trigger governor or direct linkage. Good Luck.

Troy-Built TB70SS, 1 year old, will not start even after carb cleaning


check to see that the kill button is not stuck in the contacting position, and if it is, try to get it unstuck. WD40 should help. if it's not, then disconnect the kill wires. now try starting it. if it still doesnt start, then the spark generator is bad. if this is the case, you'll need a new trimmer, or have a small engine mechanic replace the generator. i think its called the coil, not sure at the moment it's 4:00 am for me. anyways, whichever is cheaper is best choice.

I have a troy built snowblower that has sat for 7 years.


hi roaddoctor86; I suspect that your carb is the source of your problem in the fuel system. I always drain the fuel in my 2 cycle and even 4 cycle engines and then start them and run them dry, before I put them up for the winter/. I would suggest you drain the tank or at least take most of the gas out and then add a can of gas treatment/solvent and see if that helps. Something like Heet I think is one product.

Hope this helps good Luck Loriongh ps Please leave a rating if appropriate Thanks
