check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. check the primer bulb for pin holes and seating/sealed properly. if that doesn't work have the carb repaired at a service center or replaced.

SOURCE: mantis tiller sv-4 echo engine: no spark from coil

There are only 4 parts to the 2-stroke Mantis ignition system: the spark plug, the "kill button", the flywheel with embedded magnets, and the coil with integral plug wire. There are no "points" to clean or refurbish. If you've tried a new spark plug, unplugged the wire leading up the handlebars, and the magnets on the side of the flywheel are strong enough to attract a screw driver blade, then it must be a bad coil. That's all it could be. End of story.

Cruising the internet I see where these Echo coils go bad all the time. You can order the coil, but if the machine hasn't run in several years the carb will also need cleaning. So one thing leads to another. The gear box grease also needs replacing each year. What I'm trying to tell you is these are disposable tillers and due to length of time, incomplete care/ storage, ....whatever, this one's time is up.

Sorry.

SOURCE: Mantis 2-stroke tiller won't start

This could be one of several problems...
• Last year's fuel. Get some fresh gas.
• Every 2-stroke needs a new spark plug each year... you know what that means.
• Clogged carb jets due to storing the tiller over the winter with fuel in the system. Never, ever do that. Now you'll need to pull the carb apart and clean it. Most of the orifices are so tiny you can't see them. Good luck.
• Engine is so old the crankshaft seals have hardened with age. This is one reason no 2-stroke lasts longer than about 8 years. If the seals are shot, then it will cost more to fix than a new one costs. Time to toss it.

SOURCE: trouble starting old Mantis tiller 9012 - don't have a manuel -

Mantis has the owners manuals in pdf format available for download on its website. The tillers are here (I hope the link to the tiller group works...if not, just go to the main site and look for "owners manuals" link.

Also, you can call a number and get a representative who usually can help at the numbers listed there, find authorized service people if its not something you can do yourself, order parts and find detailed schematics in the owners manuals. My dog actually ate mine. LOL. But they are free, the owners manuals, unlike other places that charge you for them like they were a "part".

SOURCE: My 2 stroke mantis tiller will not prime.no fuel

also try checking to ake sure that the engine is at the right angle to get fuel in the bulb. try seeing if the bulb is getting a vacuum seal. I had to put oil on the seal and retighten the bulb screws to get any suction. make sure the fuel lines are inserted far enough into the gas can, check to see if there is any airflow (try when gas tank is EMPTY)

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!

2 stroke Mantis Tiller 1) Very difficult starting, when started, high rev works, but 2) Engine dies on deceleration. Carburetor is signed C1U K4589A. The priming pump does not suction, gasoline...


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

My mantis starts easily - but then dies. it sometimes doesn't even rotate. i can do about 3 seconds before it dies. help. what do i do?


The Carb is either cracked or needs to be rebuilt - OR - you might get luck and just blow it out with a professional dose of AIR from a larger compressor like used at mechanics shops.

I have a mantis 2 cycle tiller. it starts and runs for a minute then shuts off.


do a fuel system overhaul...but always w a 2 stroke pull the muffler and inspect the piston and cylinder if its not scored and you feel good compresion most likley its your fuel system. if it is scored it gets metal to metal and the hot metals expand.

No spark probably need ignition coil


Before you replace the coil, I would like you to know that the output spark charge (on 2 stroke engines) is so small, that it is undetectable by eye or felt simply holding the wire to receive a shock during start up. I have two of these units. I'm not sure how long you have had yours or what type engine, but unless you pull that starter cord in very rapid pulls...one after the other, these engines will not start. Fuel system will have to be up to par of course,Let me know what you find after using my previously mentioned technique.

How do you start a 2 stroke Mantis? I lost the book. Will


first, push the primer bulb a few times to get fuel circulated and air out of the carb. Turn on the switch, put the choke on full. Pull the rope until you hear it fire. Then put it on half choke. Pull the rope; it should fire within a few pulls, and should run. Take the choke the rest of the way off once it's running well. This is a standard starting procedure that works well for every kind of 2-stroke engine used in the garden.
