Question about Troy Garden

1 Answer

I have a Troy Bilt Weedeater Model # TB415CS Here is the problem my wife decided to use this unit while I was at work one day and broke it. When I go throught the start up routine and go to pull the start cord 5 x the cord now pulls with no tension whatsoever I hear a spinning noise it looks like something is spinning up behind the trigger under the engine cover but the motor will not start. I mean not even a cough or backfire or hiccup its like its pulling the start cord not engaging the engine at all while pulling the cord. The cord rewinds back down into the unit. Please help this is the best and most powerful unit I have ever owned.

If the rope recoils back into the starter, at least the starter spring is not broken...but...if you can break the unit down to where you can get a good look at it, you may find that the ratchets on the starter pulley are not engaging with the pawls on the flywheel...The pawls are spring loaded so they engage and then drop out of the way when starting, See if you can break the machine down to that point and post back,

Weedeater Head won't Turn?


I had the same problem with a Troy Bilt tb65ss. It sat in my garage for a year until I decided to tear it apart. I pulled of the head, removed the debris shield with a Phillips screwdriver, then removed the upper head assembly from the shaft. The inner flex cable is shaped like a square and had wiggled up the shaft until it was no longer engaging. I pulled it down and reassembled the upper head assembly with it engaged. It was a simple fix and took less than 10 minutes. It looks like a terrible design and a repeat problem. If it happens to me again I'll probably jb weld the flex cable in place. Good luck! You can always call the manufacturer and haggle over warranty and haul your trimmer all over town to an authorized dealer who will put it at the back of their pile because you didn't buy it from them or you can fix it in 10 minutes!

I have a Troy-Bilt 31cc 2-Cycle Gas Powered that doesn't start


Coil bad or wire to coil bad. I tell everyone what Ill tell you,when it comes to small engines,troy bilt,poulan,weedeater brand all JUNK,JUNK JUNK! Theyre made cheap,not built to last,theyre throwaways. Carbs are made in china. If youre ever in walmart next time go back to the garden section and pick up a weedeater or poulan brand chainsaw or trimmer. Look at the package good and look at the factory life expactancy. Its not in months,not even days,but in hours. If I was you I would tell myself NO MORE! I would buy a dolmar or stihl,pay the extray,cause you wont be aggrevated in the long run. P.S. Dolmar offers a 100% coverage for ONE YEAR on all equipement.

Can not remove troy bilt weedeater head


Once all the bolts are removed, tap all the way around, (with a rubber mallet), where the head meets the bottom portion of the motor. It should come right off with a little coaxing.
