Sometimes, unfortunately, the chemicals and solvents used in a "dip" and/or cleaning solution are too harsh. They tend to "swell" the very sensitive check valves inside the carb. The idle fuel circuit has one, the high speed main nozzle has one, and there are one or two inside the primer pase assembly on top of the carb. You state that it won't idle, but does it run otherwise. If it does, some carb adjustments may be required on the L and H screws to get it to idle.

    Always only use WD-40 and low pressure air to clean this small sensitive carburetors. Strong solvent cleaners and high PSI air can and will damage the check valves in them, causing idle and running problems.

    It is quite possible that your carburetor is now in need of the periodic replacement of the gasket and diaphragms inside it. ALL these carbs require this at some point. A (G & D kit) they are called; is relatively inexpensive and will restore ALL functionality to the carb is it hasn't been damaged by strong solvents or high pressure air.

I have a Troy-Bilt XP grass trimmer...only run on full choke, I replaced the fuel filter because there was plugged.Still no help. I ordered a new carb and replaced it and still had the same problem.


When you installed the new carb did you adjust it for your engine? Idle control, idle mixture, fast misture? Running only with choke indicates that engine is not getting enough gas routinely via the main jet.

Troy Bilt edger dies as soon as its under a load--like edging my driveway.


The only real explanation for this is that a tiny piece of dirt has gotten into one of the tiny fuel jets. Remove the carb and blow it out thoroughly with compressed air.

I have a 2 cycle Troy-Bilt TB90BC line trimmer. Won't idle. I've had the carburetor dipped, installed a new carb kit, replace the gas lines, but will only run at full speeds. Dies out easily....


One of three things is occuring here. The IDLE SPEED SCREW (Phillips head) on the throttle plate is screwed in way too far. The L and H mixture screws are open way too much allowing the carb to use excessive fuel, even on startup. Those 2 screws may need adjusting. The metering lever in your carb is not adjusted flush with the carb body flange and is holding the gas needle open constantly. Check these things and post back.

Ive got a troy-bilt gas trimmer tb25cs it has always ran perfect,until now when i start it up aqnd give it gas it stops running and leaks gas


Check and clean your spark arrestor located behind a diverter plate on outside of muffler. You'll need a #25 Torx, or one slot screwdriver and wrench to take the plate off. Clean it with carb cleaner and wire brush and re-install. If this screen gets clogged, it could lead to fuel spray coming out of carb throat. Clean and re-oil the sponge filter while you're at it. Hope it helps!

Troy Bilt in Hell String Trimmer TB465SS Running Problem


You need to clean the carb. or you may need to buy a carb. kit. But do a cleaning on it first. If you need tips on how to best do this, just let me know. Also check the fuel lines for cracks. As they age, they become brittle.

Troy Bilt TB 465SS Pony 4 cycle weed trimmer won't start


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.
