How do I fix a mantis tiller that wont start


First, check your fuel lines to ensure they are not brittle from using gas with ethanol. I had to replace my fuel lines last spring.

Prime the carb and pull a couple of times. Pull the spark plug and see if it is wet or damp. Dry and clean the plug. If you have some starting fluid, give it a shot - replace the plug and wire, and give it a pull.

Prime bulb should it be full of fuel on mantis tiller


No it don't have to be, mine does not fill completely. I have a trimmer that never has anything in it but it runs great. Good luck!

Gas is coming out of the exhaust and vent tube.


The float in the carburator might be stuck and it is flooding.

Starting manual for mantis


all of the mantis tiller manuals can be found here:
http://mantis.com/mantis-owners-manuals.asp
just pick out the appropriate one and away you go.

as far as starting it goes, make sure the switch is set to "I" and not "O" (top handle.) be sure you have gas in it, pull out the choke knob (front of the tiller) and depress the bubble once. pull the engine cord until the machine tries to start, then push in the choke and pull again - the engine should start within a couple of pulls. let it warm up before you try to do any tilling, and you're good to go!

Hi there is a small stone fuel filter in the tank. this filter stops fuel from running back into the tank from the carb check to insure it still on and make sure there are no cracks or hole in fuel line that should fix your problem

Mantis tiller will not start. Cannot get primer bulb to draw fuel.I replaced all of the lines,primer bulb still won't work. Tiller will start by priming cylinder by removing spark plug. Help?


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.

How much gas to mix the oil in?


First check that your Mantis needs an oil/gas mixture, most of the newer Mantis tillers have four-stroke motors meaning they have oil in the crankcase and use straight gas. If your Mantis needs oil mixed in the gas use a 50:1 ratio. That's usually 2.6 ounces of two-cycle oil (it's sold in bottles that size) to one gallon of gas but read the oil bottle to get the proper mix ratio.

Mantis tiller starts but will not stay running


Carburetor problem. Two stroke engines use oil mixed with gas. Old fuel or setting over the winter will cause varnish and sludge in the Carburetor. Start by buying a can of carburetor cleaner and mixing a new can of fuel.
1) Dump the old fuel and check replace it with new.
2) Remove the air cleaner.
3) Pump the prime bulb 3 or 4 times, set the choke, spray the insides of the carb with the cleaner and then try and start it . It should sputter and run for a few second but chances are it will take a few sprays to clean the jets
