Could just be the gasket under the screw that holds the bowl on needs the nut tightened a little, or like mine I put just a little gas resistant form a gasket under the seal on the underside of the bowl and retighted now no leaks.

good luck

My 5 hp craftsman tiller won't stay running changed gas sprayed carb new plug started it ran ok next day starts won't stay running dies fast like no fuel but can smell gas.


when it dies see if it will restart using a shot of starting spray in the air cleaner if it starts or sputters, sounds as if you have a plugged up carb you will need to dissasemble and soak in white vinegar for a few hours to un clogg (carefull with any gaskets)
if still nothing even with spray then you have a weak/defective coil or dammaged spark plug (start with plug replacement)

DRAINED GAS FOR WINTER IN CRAFTASMAN REAR TINE TILLER. PUT GAS IN WOULDN'T START. SO PUT GAS IN CARBURETOR, WOULD START BUT DIED AS SOON AS USED UP GAS. TRIED SEVERAL TIMES. SAME THING. IT'S LIKE IT ISN'T...


You drained the fuel but sounds like you did not run fuel out of carb. the carb is probably just clogged either take off carb and clean thoroughly or just try to take off the screw on the float bowl and clean it there are little holes on it that are most likely plugged up. Good Luck...

My Sears rototiller will only start when I put gas directly in the carberator and then stalls out.


Sounds like you need to clean or replace your fuel lines. (Tubing/hoses) that model is pretty cut and dry with how its set up to pull start. Or maybe the gas in the tank is OLD? Try running a tube from a small can of fresh gas, to the carb. If it runs that's your problem!

Tiller starts but dies when you try to run it full speed.


could be dirt in the bowl of the carb or high speed needle needs adjusting (unscrew or out) or gas cap is not venting correctly.

Engine starts easily, but doesnt stay running. removed fuel cap, still the same, pulled off fuel line, its not plugged. With the air cleaner off if I spray in starting fluid it keeps running, but will stop...


sounds like a fuel problem in the gas tank or carb. If bad gas or debris gets into the carb fuel bowl, this will fowl up or clog the jets after you start to run your engine. you need to remove your carb and clean the fuel bowl and jets. use a jet carb cleaner to do this. without knowing what type of engine, make sure all ur jets are clean. use a fine wire to insure they are clean and put te carb back together. also check and clean the fuel valve area of the carb, the fuel line, and the fuel tank. never use last years gas and always run your equipment out of gas before you store it for the winter.

Rough Running


It depends on the type of engine but it sounds like your carbeurator is running lean. there is and mixture adjustment screw on most of the older models, alot of the newer carbs. are pre set to emission standards. try a fuel additive called sea foam, this product has solved solved many of my fuel related issues.
