Friend, As the device has been idle for sometime, it needs to be clleaned/serviced. The fact that it starts but has to be pushed to keep running means that its fuel line is dirty or clogged. Please clean the fuel system or get it done and it will be just like a new one.

    OK. The answer is still the same. Also add cleaning of spark plugs to the list. Basically it is the fuel not reaching the carb. And if it doeas then the spark plugs do not have the blue spark due to carbon deposits or improper gap. When it gives a blue spark and has enough fuel, the machine will work.
    To be on the safe side also clean the air filter as the machine has been lying idle.

Troybilt trimmer primer bulb collapses. it will start occasionally but will only run a few minutes.i have replaced the primer bulb and gas lines and still have the same problems.


it should have a small vent in the fule tank cap if its blocked the primer bulb will be sucked in as the fule pump can **** any fule from the tank
check the tank cap first,,,,,

You can easily get a new primer bulb for it...most small engine repair shops will have what you need, and if you want, you can most likely snag one on Ebay....DON'T THROW IT AWAY, ok?

Won't start


drain fuel tank. keep depressing the primer bulb until it is clear. drain tank again. remove carb cover and disconnect lines one at a time. keep depressing primer bulb to get rid of excess gas. remove spark plug an turn engine in a position that the spark plug inlet is facing the floor, pull starter rope a few times to get rid of gas in the engine chamber.
