SOURCE: Honda FG100 Tiller - Tines wont move

I took the transmission apart and the gears were fine. The friction pads on the centrifugal clutch don't seem to make full contact with the drum. Does anyone know what the thickness of the friction pads are suppose to be? I used some belt dressing on the pads and got some movement on the tines. With no wear on the gears, I guess I'll be replacing the clutch.

You need to check your engine oil on a very level surface.

Its all too easy to over fill these engines with oil and the results can spell disaster if not rectified. On a level surface, with the machine level (not tipped forward) the oil should just be reaching the top of the threads for the bung. Any more than that and you have to much in.

This symptom can also be caused of incorrect storage .ie the machine being left on its side allowing oil to fill the exhaust box.

Check your oil level first then run the machine until the left over oil in the exhaust box has been burnt off. I would then advise either replacing the spark plug with a new one or cleaning your existing one and checking / replacing your air filter

SOURCE: Honda Tiller revs and works for 30 seconds and then shuts down.

Hello. you have some gunk in the carburator. Get a can of starter fluid or carburator cleaner aerosol and a helper. Remove the air filter and start it up. Spray a little starter fluid into the air cleaner to keep it running for three or four minutes and the problem should clear. If it does not clear the carburator will have to be disassembled, cleaned and rebuilt. j.

SOURCE: i have honda fg 110 a mini tiller it starts fine

I have a similar problem.
The first time it was cause by the ethanol in the gasoline. It deteriorated the carberater rubber membrane so that it had a crack in it. The carberater would run lean. Take off the primer bulb and there is a plastic cover that goes over the rubber membrane. Remove that cover, and check the membrane. If this has a crack, you can order another from a honda dealer. It is about 14 dollars. After that just use ethanol free gas. Search the internet for a local source.

The second problem I had developed a little later. The engine would start, but if I gave it full throttle, it would quit. It got worse and worse till it would run at all. I noticed when I loosened the Gas cap, then the engine would run. And when I loosed the cap, I heard a whoosh, like air being sucked in.
So I figured the cap wasn't breathing like it should, which cause a suction in the gas tank. So I took a diaper pin and went through the holes on the inside of the cap, and through the little rubber plug in the center of the inside of the cap, several times. This allowed the cap to breath. Now it runs great.

I have had the same problem.
The first time the solution was to replace the rubber membrane underneath the primer bulb. Take off the bulb, then remove the plastic part underneath the bulb. There is a rubber membrane underneath that. The ethanol in the gasoline tends to deteriorate the membrane. The honda dealers sell them for about 14 dollars.

The second time the problem was caused by the gas cap, not properly venting. In this case the engine would start and run, but when I gave it full throttle, it would quit.
It got so bad that it wouldn't even run. I noticed when I loosened the gas cap it ran great.
So I took off the cap, removed the inner parts, and got a diaper in and pushed it though the holes in the plastic part underneath the cap, and through the rubber plug in the center. I did this a few times and check with my mouth to see if I could pull some air through the cap. When it breathed satisfactorily, I put the cap back on the gas tank and it ran great. Now it runs better than new.

If your unit has a primer bulb, start your engine . When it starts to die push your primer, if the engine comes back to life you have a carb issue.

I also have Mantis tiller for 2 years. From the very beginning I had a problems. I was referred by Mantis to the repair store and was charged $90.00 for oil drainage. The second time I was waiting for handle replacement for ~ 1 month. This tiller can't handle even little jobs and the warranty doesn't worth a dime. Maybe I will be more successful using it in my living room . I have an equipment with Briggs and Stratton engines and I never had a problem.

To me Mantis mean big advertisement and waste of money.

check your fuel lines for clogging if it ran fine last year means you have a clogged fuel line somewhere or the carb itself is stopped up disassemble the carb and do a visual inspection also use B12 chemtool carb cleaner use both the spray and the fuel cleaner treatment i know for sure your problem is related to ethanol fuel hope this helps good luck and always run your equipment completely out of fuel for long term storage or between seasons

sounds like the carburetor's getting plugged up. First, sta-bil doesn't burn that great, so you may want to dump it and start over. If the fuel has already sat for that long, sta-bil won't help it anyways. You want to start with fresh gas, with the proper mixture. If that doesn't solve it, you can look at the wide open mixture screw and see if you can tune it better.

Engine won't keep running when using the throtle.


Hi Don. There are two adjustment screws on the carburetor. Start the engine and while it is idling, turn the screw closest the engine (low speed adjustment) counterclockwise until it starts to falter, then back a 'hair' and try the throttle again. If that doesn't work, I would recommend doing what I usually do... put a new carb on and be done with it! Carb is a Zama C1U-K54A
