I had the same problem. I adjusted the throttle stop IN until I got an idle without touching the throttle.

What kind of engine is it ? Does it have a float carburetor or diapram carburetor ?

Check that the fuel filter is sitting near the bottom of the tank, and not somehow being held near the top of the tank.

Difficulty adjusting carb for smooth idle and full power tilling


Your quickest fix for this problem is to simply replace the carburetor, a Zama K54A. Do it all the time. After that, if you can find a 2 cycle oil, Opti-2, it's the best you can use and it's a one mix for all your 2 cycle equipment (blowers, trimmers, chainsaws, etc.) It's the only 2 cycle I sell in my shop.

Matie 2 cycle will not run when throttle is ful on.


Make sure all of your bolts are tight, especially the ones on the carb. If so you will need to clean the carb.

Mantis tiller 2 cycle seemed as if it was running out of gas


Check fuel filter and lines, if thay are good I would get a carb kit and set the adjustment screws at 1 turn out from lightley seated to start. Don't lean high speed screw too much.
You might check muffler & cylinder port for carbon first.
