Check the fuel lines for a breakage or the primer bulb for a crack. Sounds like it is sucking air instead of fuel

SOURCE: how can i get my mantis to start?

Hi again,
the I / o switch is for i = ignition or ON - the O = off

not seeing the choke you will need to push the control one way or the other - using memory push the choke control full one way and try to start the unit - it if fires off pull it back about 1 quarter of the way back away from full on choke.
As for pushing the bulb - if the unit has not been started for a month or more - push the bulb 10 times. - if you're restarting the unit after a short pause in use then 3 times.
Best of luck with this.
Also you might just want to drop by a Lowes hardware and they will help you if you need further help.

Thanks for choosing Fix Ya

Make sure there are no leaks in the bulb. Did you reattach the fuel lijnes correctly? You should feel resistance after pushing 3 or 4 times to ensure fuel is getting to the carb. If necessary replace the bulb. Otherwise check with Mantis at www.mantis.com or give them a call for troubleshooting assistance.

My mantis tiller with a honda gx22 engine starts then shuts off after approx. 30 sec.


If your unit has a primer bulb, start your engine . When it starts to die push your primer, if the engine comes back to life you have a carb issue.

Vapor lock


The tank vent is a bronze plug inserted into the tank casting--the caps are not intended to vent. Check the fuel filter for plugging and the condition of the fuel lines and primer bulb. You should be able to fill the bulb with fuel after several pushes of the primer bulb. Have the fuel lines been changed? Hope this helps!

After it starts its over heating cause vapor lock?


You do not need to press the primer if the machine has been running, over heating is another issue, the boiling sound could be the gas just super evaporating when it hits that hot cylinder, if its getting that hot there is some other issue. Maybe your fuel mixture is to rich, check to see that your fuel to oil ratio is correct.

PRIMER GAS BUBBLE CRACKED & LEAKING


Carefully unsrew the two screws in the plate holding the primer bulb down and just remove it while holding the rest of the carb down. Take the bulb to a parts/repair shop and buy another bulb for a Zama carb and reinstall.
