Question about Troy Garden

1 Answer

I have a Troy Bilt TB90BC. It starts fine but doesn't want to run unless the choke is on or the engine is revved all the way. Any thoughts?

Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor a few times, and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower/weedeater is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, You will first seat the jet screws and count the number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns they were in/out.

I recommend cleaning the filter with gasoline if its foam or replacing it if its paper. If this doesn't fix the problem you should remove the carburetor (in between the air filter box and the engine) and cleaning it thoroughly with carb cleaner from your local parts store.

Only runs on full choke


You can try to open the high speed jet a little on the carburetor. This may fix the problem.
