Troy-Bilt Riding Lawn Mower Repair Pine Bluff AR

Before you break out the toolbox to repair your Troy-Bilt rider, let our lawn mower repair experts take a look at it for you. We want to carefully inspect it to determine if it is working as it should or if there are other issues that need to be sorted out. A thorough inspection is very important to determining what the problem is and how to go about fixing it.

Lawn mowers are hard working machines and they operate in very dirty conditions. All this dirt takes a toll on the engine and chassis and can clog up air filters and wear out bearings and blades. This dirt build up can also overheat the engine and transmission when it coats the cooling fins and fan. The deck must also be kept clean to prevent it from rusting out over time.

By doing your job of keeping the mower clean, it will make it last for a long time and make it easier for our shop to troubleshoot the problem. Sometimes a problem can be hidden under all that dirt such as an oil leak that needs to be repaired.

From tune-ups to teardowns, our shop is ready to help you when your Troy-Bilt riding lawn mower in Pine Bluff Arkansas is not running its best.

With the tough conditions that a lawn mower is subjected to, it is no wonder why they breakdown and need repair occasionally.

My Lawn Mower Will Not Stay Running

This is another frequent problem with a lawn mower. It will run for a while and then dies. It could run for a few seconds or it could run for 30 minutes and decide to conk out. It really doesn’t matter to you of course as you want it to keep on running!

A few things you can check is to make sure your fuel is good. Your mower needs clean and fresh fuel to run. If you can take a fuel sample, it should be clear, not have any discoloration other than a slight yellowish color and not have any debris or particles in it. The odor should be strong and not stale.

If you determine that your gas is bad, it will need to be removed from the carburetor and the fuel tank and fresh fuel added.

Another problem is a carburetor that is plugged up. It will run on choke but when it transitions to the main jet, it will stumble and die because it is not getting fuel through that jet. Cleaning the carburetor is the solution for this problem.

Your choke could be stuck closed and cause the mower to run for a short period of time and then die. You can tell this by looking at the open end of the carburetor and seeing if the butterfly is closed or if it is opening as the engine warms up. A stuck choke will cause your lawn mower to not stay running every time.

The last thing is the ignition system. Your ignition coil could be heating up and malfunctioning. When an ignition coil breaks down, it will stop producing power to the spark plug and it will die at that point.

By checking these items one by one, you can narrow down what the problem is and get your lawn mower running once again.

My Mower Runs For A While Then Dies

This is an all too common with lawn mowers and I will give you some tips on how to resolve this.

A lawn mower that runs and then dies quickly is generally caused by a fuel issue. When a lawn mower first starts, the choke aids the carburetor in getting an extra amount of fuel to get the engine going. While the engine is running in this choke mode, fuel is being routed through the choke circuit primarily.

As the engine warms up or speeds up for engines that have a air vane lever that is moved by the spinning of the flywheel, the carburetor transitions from the choke mode to the main jet.

Here is an easy test. If the mower will run on partial choke and continue to run, then this means your main jet is plugged up and not letting fuel through it and therefore starving the engine.

What needs to be done is the carburetor must be disassembled and cleaned very well. First remove the carburetor bowl and the bottom. It should have a 10mm bolt or a 1/2″. It may also have a fuel shutoff solenoid on it that needs removed and then a 14mm bolt that goes through the bowl.

Then you can remove the float and needle assembly by pulling the small dowel pin that holds it to the carburetor. Set that aside on a clean paper towel. Now depending on what the bowl looks like inside, this will determine if you continue or you buy a new carburetor. If the inside of the bowl has corrosion or fuel that has adhered to the inside of it, this would be one that you want to replace. Also dry and powdery looking residue in the bowl is a sure sign that you should consider replacing the entire carburetor.

If things look fairly good inside, then remove the main jet and emulsion tube that are inside the fuel tower that runs up and down through the carburetor. You will need a standard screwdriver with a thin blade to allow you to get to it.

If you have a brass bolt that held the fuel bowl on, this is your main jet. Now clean these very well with carburetor cleaner or brake fluid and be sure that the tiny ports are cleaned out. You can use a welder’s tip torch cleaner to aid in cleaning them. Just don’t enlarge with the file like end of the tip cleaners. You will also want to clean the needle and seat. A Q-Tip works well to push down to the seat and twist. A soft bristle brush and carb cleaner works fine for the needle.

Spray some carb cleaner into the ports inside the carburetor body and then blow everything out with an air compressor if you have one set to low pressure. Make sure the carburetor bowl has been cleaned out as well and then reassemble everything.

One thing you should do is also take a fuel sample in a clean glass jar to ensure that the fuel is good in your lawn mower and not contaminated with water. It should look crystal clean with a slight yellow appearance and have a strong odor.

After you re-install the carburetor and test run the engine, it should run at a steady rpm with no surging. If it does surge, you can either try to clean it again or opt for replacement. You can also try to snug up the carburetor bolts to make sure it seals well. Be sure to replace the gaskets on both sides of the carburetor if you replace it.

By giving your carburetor a thorough cleaning, it should resolve my mower runs for a while and then dies issue.

My Lawn Mower Locked Up

First lets determine what the term “locked up” actually means. When an engine is locked up, it means that the crankshaft will not rotate and is stuck or locked up in that position.

Is the engine low on oil?

There are different things that can cause a lawn mower engine to get locked up and the first one is a lack of oil. When a lawn mower comes into our shop one of the first things we do is to check the oil and if there is none on the dipstick or it we barely see any, it usually is not a good sign.

Running any engine low on oil causes the bearing surfaces to not get any lubrication and they become very hot and wear quickly. If they become hot enough, they will actually weld the connecting rod to the crankshaft or the piston pin. In that case, the engine is most likely junk and it is cheaper to replace it or the lawn mower.

If there was a small amount of oil on the dipstick, the engine may have only partially seized up and is still usable. It will just need to be broken loose by removing the spark plug wire and gently turning the blade on a push or self-propelled mower. If it breaks loose without a great deal of effort, then you will want to add oil and run the mower and then change the oil again. Running the mower for a while to ensure that it is not making any knocking sounds or is down on power is important as you don’t want to throw a rod out of the block.

Are the push rods connected to the rocker arms and adjusted correctly?

An engine with loose push rods can cause the engine to lock up. One push rod will fall off of the rocker arm and then the cylinder will have high compression and no way to relieve it.

Is there raw gas in the cylinder?

A cylinder can also fill with gasoline that is leaking from the carburetor and cause the engine to hydo lock. You turn the key and try to start your riding lawn mower and it turns 180 degrees and then stops is a sign of a hydro locked mower engine. First you need to repair the carburetor that is causing this issue and then remove the raw gas out of the engine cylinder.

Is there something that is stopping the blade?

Other things that can make the engine lock up are a large amount of grass under the deck or a rock or stick caught in the blade. Check under the deck and be sure to pull the spark plug wire off before you do.

Is your pull starter or electric starter broken?

Your pull starter or electric starter can break while it is engaged and cause the engine to lock up. On a riding lawn mower you can remove the blower cover and see if the starter is stuck in the engaged position. You can do the same for a push or self-propelled lawn mower.

Is something inside the engine broken?

This is something that is an unknown because you cannot see if the camshaft or something else has broken and is binding inside the engine. This will require disassembly to determine what is damaged and needs to be repaired.

By carefully looking for these clues, you can determine why my lawn mower locked up.
