Craftsman Model No.917.294250

I have a craftsman rear tine tiller. It is about 4 years old. I was tilling with it when all of a suddent the tires locked up. The tines still rotate and the engine runs good. Does this have something to do with the transmission, and does anyone know why this would occur?
thank you

First check for spark, if you have spark than you can try spraying a little fuel into the carb and try to start it if it starts then dies its the carb

SOURCE: Help, new craftsman rear tine tiller stopped tilling.

It sounds like the belt just stretched. Now you need to move the belt tensioner over to put more pressure on it.

SOURCE: Tiller tines will not turn. Engine runs fine...

Well hopefully it's not the transmission, as sometimes these tend to go. Another common but cheaper repair are the two bearings where the tines connect to the unit.

MORE THAN LIKELY.. The bearing is located above the worm gear housing, the part connected to the tines beneath the guard. This removal can be somewhat frustrating but if you remove it and remove the engine flange you'll be able to manually spin the drive shaft and see if it's the worm gear housing/lower bearings or if it's the more likely bearing on the clutch drum or the clutch itself.

If you cant move the tines by hand then I wouldn't think you sheared the pins, more like a gear box problem.

It appears that the gear case on your model is not capable of being serviced. The cost is over 300 dollars. There is a shear pin or similar connection in the case where the shaft connects to the pulleys. It has broken off and the shaft has no torque now.

I have a craftsman 19 in dual rotating tines, rear tine tiller. # 917-293493. In mid till, the tines quit turning. Won't shift into any gear. Wheels are locked. Any ideas?????


It is going to be a transmission issue. You can try with the engine off, turning the trans pully by hand in the opposite direction that the motor was turning it.
Some gears in the trans got crossed up and locked.

Not sure about this tiller but some others just need oil in the crankcase - tillers tend to lose oil because of the harsh conditions they work under. If you hear squeaking down their it might be a good idea to check it out.
