SOURCE: tilller will not run
Get the model # and serial # off of the sticker. Got to the Troy Bilt site and use the owners manual link. Need to leave off the last 3 numbers of the model #.
If that site does not have the manual, I've found them on the MTD site. I enter only the first 2 numbers of the model # and then hunt for my manual from the list.
If all else fails, you can call Troy Bilt at their # provided on the site.
Hope this helps.

Sounds like you need to take the carb. apart and clean it. I like to use a Den Tek Brush, (used for cleaning teeth), to clean the small ports in carb. they work great for this job. Make sure to either clean or replace the small screen in thcarb. as well.

You just have to pull the lever back, like it was on the saw, until it clicks/unlocks. It may be hard to do, but thats what has to be done.

Empty out the gas and replace with proper gasoline mixed with oil in the proper proportion. Always use a good quality 2-cycle oil that contains a fuel stabilizer.
To start the generic chainsaw, follow these steps:
1. Pull the choke all the way out
2. Press the fuel bulb serveral times to prime the carb - you can feel when the fuel flows into it.
3. Set the lock on the trigger to full speed.
4. Now, pull the starter rope until the saw sounds like it tried to start.
5. Press the choke in to the 1/2 way position.
6. Pull the rope until it starts.
7. Release the trigger lock and push the choke all the way in.
If starting it when it is warn, skip steps 1 and 4.
It is unlikely that the spark plug is the problem. If you replace it without properly setting the gap, you may make it worse. If you start trying to adjust the carb without knowing exactly what you are doing, you will make it much worse, You can try spraying some carb cleaner into the carb and pulling the rope to such the cleaner into the jets.
In the future, always add fuel stabilizer or oil with a stabilizer to you gas/oil mix. This prevents the varnishing caused by aging gasoline.

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.
