With proper maintenance, your Troy-Bilt equipment should last for years. Occasionally, though, your lawn mower or other yard-care tool may require a replacement part or two.
Here are just a few of the Troy-Bilt machines that may need some routine maintenance:
Wood chipper: If your Troy-Bilt wood chipper isn't chipping wood properly, check the blades. They can become blunt over time, and the solution may be as simple as sharpening them. If the blades are in bad condition, it's time to replace them.
Line trimmer: If your line trimmer runs rough or gives you a lot of resistance, try cleaning the carburetor with a carburetor cleaner. Sometimes, the carburetor becomes clogged if fuel is left inside for too long. If cleaning doesn't work, you may need a replacement carburetor or fuel filter.
Pressure washer: If your high-pressure hose is leaking, examine the O-rings for signs of damage. You can remove old O-rings using a flathead screwdriver and then just replace them with new ones.
Snow blower: If your blower won't start, check the spark plug. If it reveals signs of a cracked insulator, a burned electrode or carbon buildup, replace the plug.
When your mower isn't starting, first check that there's fuel in the tank and that the fuel hasn’t broken down from sitting too long. If it has broken down or you believe the fuel may be stale, replace the fuel to see if that will help start the motor. Be sure to also check your spark plug to see if it's covered in oil or other deposits. This can stop the motor from starting as well. If you check these issues and they all seem to be in working condition, it may be time to change out some other parts.
