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: How do I clean the fuel line on troy bilt 5hp chipper vac?

unscrew the nut on the bottom of the carburetor and remove the float bowl it must be emptied and cleaned , debree and water gets into the bowl and blocks of fuel flow reinstall the bowl and start, some carbs don't have a float bowl requiring you to remove the gas tank and carb which is a more involved cleaning.

check for fuel try starting fluid if it fires on that then you have spark if it does not then you have a spark problem and seeing the command engine has two coils check the safety switches on the mower side

I have a 18 hp briggs and stratton engine that will not start


A few more things to check.
1. The oil level. If the oil level is low the oil level sensor will ground the ignition.
2. Check the wiring from the seat safety switch to make sure it is connected.
3. Follow the black wires from the ignition control module to make sure none of them are chaffing and do not have a chassis ground.

If you still have problems disconnect ONE lead from the oil level sensor and see if you have spark. Most of the time these oil level sensors are the common failure.

Troy-bilt TBP6040 4-cycle stalls out after about 10 minutes. Started doing this the 2nd time I used it. After it stalls out it will not start until it completely cools off. Fresh fuel in it. Arrestor...


I have the same model from Troy-Bilt. I have only had it about 4 or 5 months. Mine has started using a LOT of oil. I noticed a significant increase in temperature compared to my old Husqvarna 2 cycle. Mine does not completely stall, but it does start to sputter when it gets hot. I am going to take mine back to Lowe's where I bought it. So far I am VERY unhappy with the TBP6040.

Our Troy bilt lawn tractor wont start. It seems like a short


Unless something catastrophic has happen internally, fuel and spark are about all you need. If you are sure of the fuel supply, pull the spark plug lead and let it arc to ground so you can check ignition health. You should have a bright blue spark visible. If you do, then pull the plug and replace it; the insulator may be cracked and robbing some of the high voltage. If it still doesn't start, you may have flooded it and when this happens to me, I make sure no spilled gasoline is present but I then pull the plug and use a charcoal or fireplace lighter and place it in front of the sparkplug hole. It should pop and help exhaust the excess fuel.

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.

10 hp Troy Built chipper pull start frozen


If a branch was already being chipped when it ran out of gas...you must clear the hopper of any chunks of wood in it. Pull the plug wire and use a metal pry bar to dislodge any pieces of wood. when the flywheel runs free, put the plug wire back on and the choke on. Try it now!!!
