I recommend cleaning the filter with gasoline if its foam or replacing it if its paper. If this doesn't fix the problem you should remove the carburetor (in between the air filter box and the engine) and cleaning it thoroughly with carb cleaner from your local parts store.

could be bad coil. does it stay running with choke on? or half on, if so its a gas problem. could be the main jet is plugged in the carb. Or water in the carb bowl. Remove the bowl nut and let some gas run out the put it back in and try it. just guessing as not much info to go on.

How to start a Troy Bilt Tiller


make sure there is fuel and oil in the engine. There should either be a choke lever/setting or a primer bulb. Push the primer bulb, if there is one, or choke the engine. Make sure it is in neutral, and pull the starter. Should be all there is to it. If there is other info that is causing the machine not to start, please tell model number and what you have done in trying to start.

I have a troy pony 17.5 that cuts off when you engage the blade and the choke is on. what can i do to fix the problem. thank you for any help to fix this problem


does it run ok off choke with blade not engaged can you rev it up ? if not it sounds like the carbs got issues ? if it does check the second wire coming off the igntion coil too the safety switch may be grounding /shorting causing engine to shut off kinda like the handle on your push mower when you walk away and let go of the handle the zone control cable stops the spark and flywheel ? carb rebuilds at your local shop are under $100 well worth it unless youve done it before kit costs like $15
