Question about Craftsman Garden

1 Answer

Sears Super Start Front Tine Rototiller won't start. No instruction manual for how to start it. Got it at garage sale last year. Started perfectly for the owner. He had to adjust a couple of screws so wouldn't be rich in gas. Took it home and put in storage building. Took it out today and can't get it to start. Is very old and the choke, fast and slow are wore off so can't tell what drive it is in.

Choke may be causing flooding of the carburator.
Change the Choke.

SOURCE: rototiller won't start

There are a number of thing that it could be, so lets start from the beginning. Check these off the list as we go:
1. Does it have fresh gas?
2. Check to see if the fuel line(s) are in good condition; (no cracks/breaks).
3. Make sure the fuel filter is not clogged.
4. Do you still have the original carburetor guts in it?
5. Make sure that the carb. is good and clean. Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152), to clean all the small portals/jet. (Use carb. cleaner)

If you have any other questions, just let me know.

SOURCE: have a rototiller it moves ok but the tines do not

Seems to be a fairly common problem with these units. If the big pulley is turning which I assume it is as the drive wheels work, it is most likely a problem in the gear box. The shift mechanism in these units leave a lot to be desired. You can try to repair it your self or take it to a service center. Labor will be high due to the amount of time required to separate the engine and transmission.

We have a rototiller, craftsman, bought new at sears several years ago. Model No. 944627591, Craftsman 9 HP, 21 inch tine width, rear tine tiller with counter rotting tines. Pinion input gear is sheared...


The model ID starting in 944 indicates your tiller was manufactured by Husqvarna. This division has since been purchased by AYP. A quick online search finds that www.needlawnmowerparts.com lists having one for $55 plus shipping. I have not dealt with this company, so I can't recommend or not recommend them.
It is very common for tiller makers to not offer internal transmission parts. Transmissions are difficult at best to repair and reassemble. Used tillers are available from time to time, check your local classified ads or www.craigslist.com to find one. If you decide to go with a new tiller, i would recommend trying www.northerntools.com or www.mytsc.com to start your search.
As far as longevity on the new transmission, Sears won't guarantee any of their parts longer than 1 year. However, you should expect a replacement part to last as long as the first one did.
Sears doesn't give year models for their equipment, but usually supports replacement parts for at least 10 years. Most equipment manufacturers don't build their units to last longer than 10 years....they want you to buy another one.
I hopethis has helped.
Good luck!

Yard Machines rototiller front tine- having problems starting


Sounds like you are either losing your "prime" or your carb needs either, cleaning, rebuilding with a kit. Probably a cleaning will do it. Watch U Tube there are wonderful people who film the whole process from tear down, to replacement. Com'on! Get into it its easy and it don't take long. Then you'll always know how to do it!

Rototiller pull start won't pull


First thing to do, if you haven't already, change the oil, and remove all 'old' gas.
Then, after that's done, remove the plug, in order to de-pressurise the cylinder.
Then try to crank it again.
If it turns, then clearly, it's not ceased.
Remember, don't loose you're patience, just take your time.
Good luck with that:)
