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.

My mantis tiller with a honda gx22 engine starts then shuts off after approx. 30 sec.


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.

My 5 hp craftsman tiller won't stay running changed gas sprayed carb new plug started it ran ok next day starts won't stay running dies fast like no fuel but can smell gas.


when it dies see if it will restart using a shot of starting spray in the air cleaner if it starts or sputters, sounds as if you have a plugged up carb you will need to dissasemble and soak in white vinegar for a few hours to un clogg (carefull with any gaskets)
if still nothing even with spray then you have a weak/defective coil or dammaged spark plug (start with plug replacement)

Earthquake tiller viper 43cc engine will not start


I have the same issue, I thought it was the carburetor so I cleaned it and put it back together, same issue, I put a new carburetor on it same issue, has great spark, if I spray carb cleaner into it, it will start and run for a few seconds even throttle up, but then it dies, and will not start again without carb cleaner spray, and fuel is fresh and properly mixed, very confusing indeed.

Honda fg100a wont stay running full of fuel and oil


I had a similar issue. Tiller starts and runs for 20 secs. or so then dies. Found the problem! In turning the tiller on its side to check model numbers etc. the fuel line had shifted inside the tank and was stuck just about at the TOP of the fuel level. When I gently pushed the fuel filter and line back to the BOTTOM of the fuel tank, the tiller now runs beautifully! So, check that the fuel line placement inside the fuel tank is correct.

MANTIS TILLER WITH HONDA GX25 ENGINE STARTS FINE BUT WHEN GIVEN THROTTLE DIES OUT. ALSO A LITTLE WHILE BACK OIL WAS COMING OUT OF CARB BUT THIS HAS NOW STOPPED. THIS IS A 4 STROKE ENGINE WITH APPROX 4...



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.

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.

Viper engine on my earthquake tiller starts fine cold then dies after fifteen minutes and wont restart


You probably need a new coil, if it is a 2 stroke then it will almost certainly be the coil. The defect is very typical and recognizable.

Tillers what type of motor?


* Engine Options -- Tillers come in four- and two-stroke models. o Get a four-stroke engine if you can. + Easier to start up than two-stroke models. + Require less maintenance and are more convenient because they don't require any mixing of fuel and oil. + Produce less exhaust. o The more horsepower, the more powerful your tiller will be. + Rear-tine tillers generally have more horsepower than any other kind. + You'll appreciate that horsepower when you have hard soil to till.
