Question: The Primer Button
Can I order just a primer button for my Troybilt trimmer model number TB465ss?

Yes, you can. You can find them relatively inexpensive on Ebay also. They may have some in the garden sections at Home Depot and Lowes. You probably have a Zama, a Walbro or one of the Ruiing carbs (even though most Ruiings are on Ryobi products). The part is real cheap and VERY easy to replace.
Question: Trimmer Starts Fine But Dies Aft...
Glen Carter, Sr.
This trimmer starts fine but dies after 15 seconds. It will only start again after pushing the primer bulb 5-10 times, then dies again.

Hi Glen, Those are classic symptoms of a clogged carburetor. The carb can become clogged by dirt coming in from the air filter or the fuel filter. It can also clog if gasoline is left in the machine for more than a couple of months. The gas breaks down and forms a varnish on the internal parts of the carb. You should be able to make the repair by replacing the carburetor, Part #753-1225. You will need a new gasket and o-ring part #791-182732 and 791-181751. It is a good idea when replacing the carburetor to also replace the air filter (part # 791-181757) and the fuel filter (part #791-182353). This will help to ensure that no dirt gets into the new carburetor. All of these parts are available from http://www.ereplacementparts.com. Good luck and I hope this helps with your repair! -Mark
