SOURCE: my 6 HP Craftsman tiller will not run without starting fluid

Carberator is gummed up and will need to be removed and dismantled and soaked in solvent for an hour or two.

Mantis tiller won't start


Flush out old gas. Check/clean spark plug. Oil filled? Try spraying starter fluid in carb. Carb should not have any oil in it. Change air filter.

Engin runs fine at idle but stalls out at high idle and wont rev up.


Hi 5flash... Get an assistant and a can of starter fluid. Remove the air cleaner and spray some starter fluid into the air intake. Start it up and spray the starter fluid as you move it to high idle, repeat until it works properly. Joe

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

I have fuel and a good spark, but will not start with out spraying starter fluid into carb.


sounds like your carburetor is plugged, or has lost its prime. As I need to know more, please state the brand of engine it has; briggs or tecumseh, and if briggs, is it a quantum (5 hp or greater with carb not attached to gas tank) or regular?(has the carburetor on top of the gas tank.)

4 hp brigs engine on merry tiller sitting around for 2 years and won't run, but will start with starter fluid.


change out the gas in the tank. make sure fuel line from tank to carb is clear. if this is all good then you might need to clean and rebuild your carb, if you are not getting fuel through the carb to the engine.

definately a fuel issue.

Tiller wont get fuel to start


Try disconnecting the line at the carb. Then carefully blow back to the tank. It may have something blocking the outet from the tank. If that doesn't do the trick, the float may be stuck and not allowing the needle to open for fuel to enter the carb bowl. Good luck...Lee

Maxim tiller won't run


Try better quality gas. I had the same problem. Ethanol too high in lower grade gas. Buy better grade or ethanol free. Mine works fine with better gas.
