Have you checked the quality of the gas? is it old from last season? open the gas cap and smell the gas,does it smell like varnish? If your gas is bad it wont start because it has lost it"s flamability.also you don"t what to use old gas because it can damage your engine by causing your valves to stick or freeze up...If your gas is bad you need to drain your fuel tank and carb and replace it with fresh gas..You might want to go and get some fuel stabalizer at the auto store or wal mart and add it to you fuel can you use to fill you mower. That way your fuel will be good for up to a year when stabalizer is added to your gas..Have you checked for a spark at the spark plug? remove the spark plug from the motor, plug the spark plug back into the plug socket and lay the spark plug aganst the muffler, pull the pull start cord and look at the end of the spark plug for a bright blue spark. You might want to do this in the shade to be able to see it. If you don"t see a spark , i would try a new plug first and see..if still no spark then your ignition coil has gone bad,that is the whole unit from your spark plug wire to the coil..check these items first,,,

I have a Troy Bilt 675 lawn mower, won't start.


is the gas in the tank old? if so, try to drain it and put fresh gas in. Pull the spark plug to make sure it is not fouled and replace it or put in a new one. Check to make sure that you do not have the mixture or choke set to run too rich or too lean. If you are at an altitude above 2,500 feet you need to run more lean to compensate.

Always start by checking the spark plug. If you are getting spark and still not starting, it's probably a carburator problem.
