Question about Honda 25cc 4-cycle Mini Tiller
It had problems starting after just a few days, but now it will almost never start, and when it does, it won't run at idle speed and eventually cuts out at full power.
Id say if its that new I would return it .Otherwise was it ever stored upside down or was it laying on its side
Its unlikely its a air filter issue with that low of use but you may want to check there to see if the oil is being siphoned up thru the breather line in the air cleaner area. lf the engine had been ran dry initially then there could have been damage done to the cylinder walls and the oil could be passing what is left to the piston rings,if this is the cause the unit would need to be overhauled .

You need to check your engine oil on a very level surface.
Its all too easy to over fill these engines with oil and the results can spell disaster if not rectified. On a level surface, with the machine level (not tipped forward) the oil should just be reaching the top of the threads for the bung. Any more than that and you have to much in.
This symptom can also be caused of incorrect storage .ie the machine being left on its side allowing oil to fill the exhaust box.
Check your oil level first then run the machine until the left over oil in the exhaust box has been burnt off. I would then advise either replacing the spark plug with a new one or cleaning your existing one and checking / replacing your air filter
