  1. I followed all the proper steps to get it started but once it got running I forgot to switch over to run. Then the Troy built cut off, now it won’t start back up. What should I do???

  2. I may have seized the engine on Troy Bilt snowblower by adding too much oil. The pull cord will not work. I did also start it with little oil and smoke did come out. I know, this was not my best work. Are there any steps I can to un-seizing the engine?

    Thanks.
