Customer Question

troy bilt jumpstart 27cc tb22ec won't start...I followed all the instructions on the machine but it still won't start.
It worked fine part of last season and then one day we just couldn't get it to start.
What can we try before having to take it in somewhere?

If you remove the spark plug and ground it to the metal of the engine , do you have spark when cranking?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.
If it has spark, try putting a small amount of fuel direct into the spark plug hole, re-install the spark plug and see if it will start.

How do I ground it to the metal of the engine?
Expert:  Curtis B. replied 1 year ago.
Just try and lay it back in the hole , or get an alligator clip and make a wire so you can clip it to spark plug and metal, to the engine.
