Repairing a Troy-Bilt Riding Lawn Mower

July 24, 2020

How do I find someone who can fix a Troy-Bilt riding lawn mower? I need new blades, belts, and a tire replaced. That's all. I need someone who is honest and that I can trust.

Thank you in advance.

You could probably find a trustful repair shop at your local tractor store (if they sell Troy-Bilt and you want only genuine replacement parts).

I'm sure Troy-Bilt has authorized repair shops in your area.

It is not ethical to recommend personal or private repair shops as these can have differences of opinion as to the quality/honesty of that particular shop.
But; whoever you choose, be sure to search for any negative comments on their site as well as general comments.

Specify what repairs/parts you want replaced/fixed and request them to save old parts for you (not tires).
Just be sure to get a written estimate (check space where it says how much they can go over the amount on the form and change or cancel). Also ask for a specified date of finished work/pick-up.

I hit a rock that stalled the motor. It won't restart. It's totally dead. There is no electrical power to the starter.

Please check these things:

  1. If you've hit a rock there is something jammed in the blades of the mower. It needs to be removed and see if your blades can turn freely.
  2. Normally there is a cut off switch on the mower when something like this happens. Find the switch and reset the switch.
  3. Try checking under the mower and in the engine if there is any debris from the rock that you hit that might block the motor or blades from moving freely.
  4. If none of this work, please ask one of the many experts about mowers here: www.mytractorforum.com/.../59397-anybody-into-old-reel-mowers...

My mower won't go forward or backward. The engine runs and the blade turns, but it won't go forward or back when shifting. It quit while I was cutting the grass. Could it be a belt issue?

Why would a CVT Troy-bilt lawn mower with a 7 speed control lever not have any change in speed when the lever is shifted? The lawn mower is 15.5 hp motor and is only 3 years old.

The assembly lever may need to be replaced. If you are handy, you can do it yourself. Here is a YouTube m.youtube.com/watch?v=GnVlcInjExA video

Thanks for answering the questions here instead of just referring people to a repair shop like the Briggs and Stratton answer person does. Short version: I inherited a Troy-Bilt riding mower (18.5 HP I/C). It needed a jump from my car. The parking brake/clutch was set. The choke was on. TPO set and the seat was down. I turned the key and the whole deck "bumps" once like it's in gear. It really bumps hard, too. Then nothing. I turn the key off and try again and it bumps once; then nothing. Am I doing something wrong?

Also, where is the cut off switch you mentioned in another answer to the guy that hit a rock in the ground and the mower wouldn't start back up? You told him to reset the cut off switch, but I don't know where to find it on my mower. The model is # 13AO77TG766.

Thanks.

I was mowing yesterday, disengaged the blade, tried to back up and it kept trying to cut off on me. I ended up just cutting it off and now it will not start. The battery is fine and the belt is fine.

I tried pushing the lever up and down a few times possibly thinking maybe the blade wasn't fully disengaged, but nothing is working. Any suggestions?

Is it possible you have mouse or critter nest (or remnants) that are in the undercarriage? Sometimes they gum up the works and the machine cuts out. They also may have chewed wires and you are experiencing it shorting out...works when the wires touch, cuts when they don't.

There is a nut that will line up with the bracket and allow you to shift gears. Yours may need an adjustment. There is an article that says how here. www.justanswer.com/.../3tgfp-troy-bilt-pony-seems-jump-gear...

It sounds like a transmission issue to me. You probably will need servicing.

You are getting too much air into the mower, which is why you need to put your hand over the air filter. Check the carburetor.

You will have to take the mower apart and see which part got bent out of shape. That is what is preventing your mower from working.
