Question about Honda 25cc 4-cycle Mini Tiller

1 Answer

There is oil on the spark plug in my new honda mini tiller (less than a month old). What might have caused this, and how do I fix it? Tiller won't start

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

It sounds like a carburetor fuel issue. Which you could try attempting to adjust the carburetor (or have someone else do such) to see if that cures the problem.

My mother-in-law put gasoline in the oil fill spout. tiller sat like this for 6 months. was not started. I have drained oil/gas, but still can't get to start


This is a new for me. I suspect that removing the spark plug to put a squirt or two of engine oil on top of piston to lubricate and raise the compression would be a good start. Insure that the spark plug is clean and dry and sparking when pulling the starter rope. Reinstall spark plug and try again. If no success remove air cleaner and with choke open and throttle open give a short squirt (1/2 second only) of ether in intake orfice and start right away. If engine wants to fire the carb. is plugged up with old fuel and will most likely need to be cleaned our rebuilt. Note: 6 months in storage with the fuel not drained or at least stabilized is a major cause of small engines that will not start.

Check the start switch and the start switch line. If not broken, check the choke switch and try different settings to start it. Last check the gas line for any cracks. This tiller can be easily be flooded when pushing the prime button..

My honda tiller fg110 do not starts,before it had a lot of smoke


First make sure the fuel is fresh. If it has been in the tiller or the fuel can for a while get rid of it and go buy new fuel. If it is a 4 cycle make sure there is no oil mixed with the fuel. Give this a try and let me know. Wed can go on from there.
