20 Most Recent Troy Bilt 175HP Manual 42" Riding Mower Questions & Answers


If you didn't put fuel stabilizer in gas before letting the mower setup all winter, your gas has gunked up your carb.
You can verify this by removing the air filter and spraying starter fluid in the carb. If it cranks with the starter fluid, the carb is dirty.
Pull the carb and clean it out

Your owner's manual indicates to change the oil and replace the oil fitler on page 19 as part of the regular maintenance schedule. Whether or not your exact engine application does indeed have the filter is the engine manufacturer's option. Here is your manual.

Normally this caused by a leaky float needle valve in the carburetor; although, if you have a vacuum operated fuel pump it internal may ruptured.

This sounds like your Deck Belt drive has come off or has stretched & needs replacement.
This is normal wear & tear, easy to look for under the machine, you may be able to slip it back, on see this site for full descriptions.

Belts dont move mower back and forth, there is a bar that engage the hidrolic transfer, perhaps you move it and you have not tracking power, or, there are a series of rods that actuate the hidrolic, coud be that any of those rods came undone, if any of these to scenarios is happening to you, consider have the hidrolics chec out.
Good luck to you.

Those belts do not tighten you will have to replace it,sorry.

Check your battery and see if its fully charged. I had a battery that the charger said was fully charged but a cell was dead. Take it to a battery store and they will check it free of charge.
If that's not the problem check all the battery cables on both ends for being tight and clean. If that's not the problem you could have a bad starter.
