SOURCE: Troy Bilt Self Propelled Lawnmower drive belt

belts usually come off for a few reasons.
They become loose...stretch or the tensioner moves,  Make sure that none of the tightening bolds are slipping.  You can dab them with a bit of paint.
when the pulleys are not in alignment or crooked or bent.  Eyeball the path from one pulley to another, also make sure the tensioner is in alignment and there are no other obstructions.
good, high quality belts are required, and they must be real drive belts...not regular v belts.  If there is a way to watch the belt in operation you can usually see what's going wrong.
On my lawnmower I had to grind some metal away where the belt went from the motor to the transmission.  Good luck

You may want to check the gas cap to see if it clogged with dirt. If the gas cap is clear, you more than likely have a carburetor problem. If you need tips on carb. cleaning, feel free to ask.

SOURCE: Can't find the oil drain plug on Troy Bilt with 5.5 Honda engine

You may want to look under the deck. They sometimes put them there. And if it is a self propelled, you will probably need to remove or loosen the plastic cover that protects the self propelled belt.

You are looking for a nickel sized plug that has a square peg. Use an extension piece for a socket set if you don't have the proper plug removal tool.

SOURCE: troy bilt lawnmower not starting

In most cases it's not enough to just dump the gas out of the float bowl. The problem is that the gas has turned to varnish and varnish is sticky. It will put a nice coating over all the the interior of the carb. The only way to clean it is to dismantle it completely. This means removing the float bowl and float. Along with the needle.The important thing is that both the float and needle move freely and both the high and low idle screws are clean. Depending on the type of fuel filter you may also need to remove and clean it as well. If it is not an inline filter it most likely is located inside the tank. As long as your careful not to tear the float bowl gasket you shouldn't require a rebuild kit for the carb.
Hope this helps.

Your local lawnmower shop may carry them or your local hardware store might sell them as well. If they don't have it, then you might have to go on line and go to Troy Bilt website and special order from them. Ebay might even carry it.
