Tiller runs great just having a problem with the tines turning plowed my garden last week and for some reason the tines quit turning like its locked or something please help me


Two possibilities. Something has jammed the tines.
Pull the spark plug wire off and tuck it away someplace so as not to touch the plug.
Tip the tiller up and examine the tines for obstacle such as a rock. If there is nothing jammed try to turn the tines by hand. If the they turn freely you most likely broke a shear pin that secures the tines to the axle.Clean the axle and tines and examine very closely for the pin.
If sheared ( broken) you will need to drive the broken piece out and replace the pin.
There may also be a problem in the transmission case. You would need to remove the tines and case to open it

My craftsman 5hp tiller hit large rock, tines stopped, loud noise followed and now pull string won't budge. Why?


most tillers are equipped with a shear pin down by the tines. for this reason. if you hit something it will shear the pin and not do damage to your machine. it don't sound like that happened here. make sure the tines are disengaged. if the rope wont pull it may have sheared the flywheel key. there are videos on you tube that will show you how to take off the cover, the flywheel and check to see if this has happened. it may have locked the engine up at the worst scenario.

Tines wont turn when engaged,made a screeching sound before this happened


Your drive belt is probably broken or has jumped off the pulley.
Make sure there are no rocks or something else jammed in the tines.

The tiller stalled out and now won't crank. Why?


Was there oil in it? Check and see if a rock or other item is wedge in the tines. Take of the engine shroud, remove the spark plug and see if you can manually turn the fly wheel. If you CAN turn the fly wheel pull on the pull rope. It might just be stuck. If you CANNOT turn the fly wheel then the engine is probably blown.
Good luck hope this helps.

I have craftsmen 5HP rear tine tiller,while tilling picked up a rock which jammed the tines and stalled the motor. when i restarted it had loud grinding noise and then locked up stopping me from being able...


If the tiller tines where jammed, the tranny and motor where still trying to turn and there could be a couple different parts broken. The tranny main shaft make have busted, the tranny gears could have jammed. If the motor does start, than that is a good sign. If not than the connecting rod or crank may have snapped.

I am guessing you will probably have to dismantle the transmission and see if there are any broken gears or shaft.
