Sounds like it's flooding either from over choking or the inlet needle in the carb is leaking. Have you removed the plug and blown out the cylinder and plug with air and then tried to restart? Be careful not to keep cranking with the choke pulled out. When it 'hits' ONE time, move the choke halfway in and crank again

Starting manual for mantis


all of the mantis tiller manuals can be found here:
http://mantis.com/mantis-owners-manuals.asp
just pick out the appropriate one and away you go.

as far as starting it goes, make sure the switch is set to "I" and not "O" (top handle.) be sure you have gas in it, pull out the choke knob (front of the tiller) and depress the bubble once. pull the engine cord until the machine tries to start, then push in the choke and pull again - the engine should start within a couple of pulls. let it warm up before you try to do any tilling, and you're good to go!

My mantis tiller 2cycle: Iput new spark plug the on&off switch ok just not getting a spark to the plug. Think its the coil ?


I would say it is the coil, if you have a multimeter you can connect it to the coil and try to start it to see if it producing voltage. Hope this helps Tim

Yesterday it quit running after performing normally for about an hour. Now I cannot get it started. Motor turns over easily, but won't fire.


If you have the 2-cycle Mantis tiller, it uses the ECHO engine. ECHO warrants the ignition coil for life to the original purchaser. If you have VERIFIED there is no spark at the plug, grab you reciept and head for your local ECHO dealership. If you aren't sure where one is and need to locate a Servicing Dealer, click HERE.

Hope this is helpful,

What is left to do but change the flywheel?


check what they call air gap between the coil and flywheel .010-.012 gap
also be sure your flywheel is in time.
you will actually have to remove it to do this and check for the sheared key or be sure the key way aligns with the crankshaft keyway on the flywheel

Mantis tiller sv-4 echo engine: no spark from coil


There are only 4 parts to the 2-stroke Mantis ignition system: the spark plug, the "kill button", the flywheel with embedded magnets, and the coil with integral plug wire. There are no "points" to clean or refurbish. If you've tried a new spark plug, unplugged the wire leading up the handlebars, and the magnets on the side of the flywheel are strong enough to attract a screw driver blade, then it must be a bad coil. That's all it could be. End of story.

Cruising the internet I see where these Echo coils go bad all the time. You can order the coil, but if the machine hasn't run in several years the carb will also need cleaning. So one thing leads to another. The gear box grease also needs replacing each year. What I'm trying to tell you is these are disposable tillers and due to length of time, incomplete care/ storage, ....whatever, this one's time is up.

Sorry.
