Question about Craftsman Gas Mini - Tiller/Edger

Sears Mini 2 cycle tiller runs but won't turn the tines.

Sears Mini 2 cycle tiller starts and runs fine, however the tines won't turn. I already cleaned and check all around the tines, there is no debris. I can rev up the engine, but nothing turns.

SOURCE: Craftsman mini tiller starts good but will not idle nor run fast

i'm having the same problem. cleaned carb but didn't help. I found that if I spray starting fluid on the gasket between the carb and the motor it speeds up. I'm going to try to find a new gasket, I can't tighten it anymore.
Good luck

Sounds like you will need to replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instrucitons you get with the carburetor kit.
If the mower/weedeater is over a year old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to seat the jet screws.
But before you seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.

Your situation is puzzling and in fact on the Sears site with your tillers' parts list, they state the manual is no longer available with no replacement either. See item no. 92 on parts list.
Here is the parts list and diagram if there are any help to you.

Don't fear. Here is a link to a 6.5HP Craftsman tiller that I also hope will help. This model is a close relative but has rear tines.

Just bought an older Mantis 2 cycle tiller. The tines engage when the tiller is started. Of course that makes it hard to start with the tines on the ground! I don't believe it was doing this when I...


if the idle is too high the tines wont stop due to the tiller tines are run by a "centrifuigual clutch" which means when you increase the throttle speed the tines will start to turn : there are 2 adjustments you can try,1) adjust the idle screw under the carburetor where the throttle adjustment and a triangle piece of metal touch(your throttle cable wire will be attached to this triangle) ,if the triangle and idle adjustment don't touch and there's a gap between these 2 pieces close the gap by adjusting the 10mm adjusting nut,this will correctly set the idle #2) adjust the idle adjustment screw talked about above till the tines dont turn with throttle set at idle or lowest speed setting

While operating the Honda FG-100 mini tiller, the tiller suddenly stopped turning. The engine runs fine. I couldn't find any advice in the manual. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


If the tines become jamed, the tiller will stop. This is especially true if you are preparing your lawn for seedng without doing an preparation of the ground. Also, check you accerleration line, there may be a loose connecton.. Otherwise, sounds like a service issue.

Tines turning, mantis 2 cycle tiller


sounds like a piston seizure. are you using correct oil and ratio. carb could be going lean and causing the cylinder to over heat, adjust high speed mixing screw and hope no damage has resulted.

Tiller tines will not turn. Engine runs fine...


Well hopefully it's not the transmission, as sometimes these tend to go. Another common but cheaper repair are the two bearings where the tines connect to the unit.

MORE THAN LIKELY.. The bearing is located above the worm gear housing, the part connected to the tines beneath the guard. This removal can be somewhat frustrating but if you remove it and remove the engine flange you'll be able to manually spin the drive shaft and see if it's the worm gear housing/lower bearings or if it's the more likely bearing on the clutch drum or the clutch itself.

Honda GX25 HG110 mini tiller, tines won't turn.


Mine did the same thing....two things to check: 1) air cleaner, make sure that it is clean 2). gas filter in the gas tank. Take a short piece of wire and fish the black line out. On the end is a small fuel filter. After I flushed mine fuel filter out it ran fine.
