SOURCE: Ryobi Tiller, model RY60511A, will not start. Air

mine was a total pain. I yanked on the rope so many times, it flew out of the keeper,and when I replaced it I ran it UNDER the fuel tank cutting a slot in tank. I also blew out the primer bulb. AFTER the replacement tank I arrived, I discovered rolling the machine forward helped the flow to carb and did not require priming. Now I need to fix throttle cable. But all in all, a tough little machine.

SOURCE: craftsman tiller engine slows way down and dies when tines engaged then leaks gas through air filter, what do I need to fix?

Hi gelkins056

Sounds like you have dirt/debris in your caburetor jets,fuel passages or a diaphgram that is becoming non-flexible.
Check/Clean/Replace your Air Filter, a dirty air filter can make your engine run to rich with fuel.
Note: ALWAYS USE COMPRESSED AIR TO CLEAN YOUR JETS AND PASSAGES, VERY IMPORTANT.
Note:Before you disassemble the carburetor:
Write down on a piece of paper and or take a picture of how the linkage attaches to your carburetor for later reference when you go to reinstall your carburetor.
Mark each piece with a awl, or some kind of sharp instrument that will make an alignment scratch before you disassemble the carburetor into separate pieces.
That way you will know which way it goes back together when you reassemble it.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or by using a very small shot of 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.
Be sure to check your fuel tank for water and dirt/debris, if there is water/debris then you need to clean your tank.
Check you fuel line/s condition...after a while they will degrade and need replacement.
Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one.
When you remove your fuel lines from the carburetor be sure to make a drawing or take a picture of how the lines are connected to the carburetor.
Also a good time to take a picture for later reference for reassembly.
If the mower is over a couple of years old, then I 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.
The diaphgram may look good and flexible, but it can be deceiving and not act as a fuel pump as it should because it has become too hard and will cause hard starting,start and run and shut off, etc.
When you clean your carburetor, I recommend that you use a laquer thinner type cleaner to clean and dissolve the laquer build-up in the float and needle jet passages.
Be sure to remove all plastic and rubber parts before using the laquer thinner because it can dissolve the plastic parts and render them unuseable.
Be sure to use COMPRESSED AIR to blow out all the fuel and air passages.The higher air pressure is needed to blow some of the trash/debris from the fuel or 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.
Keep in mind that the float (if you have one) for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instructions you get with the carburetor kit, or you could also ask the parts man that you get your kit from.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly 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 lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their original position before you started.
Once you have your carburetor cleaned/rebuilt that should solve your problem.
Please take time to rate me

Looking for the part number of the air filter on craftman edger model # 53685648


On the Sears Parts Direct, they show no air filter. I would recommend taking the filter to a small engine shop so they can match it up or just go to Home Depot and match it up with one of their filters they may have in the lawn and garden. Lowes has a small engine section too, most of their stuff is Briggs and Tecumseh. Here is your parts diagram, with no air filter shown.

Hard to start and oil soaked air filter, smokes and loses power


It sounds like it got tilted on its side. The air filter needs to be cleaned or replaced and the carburetor needs to be removed and cleaned.

When the tiller gets tipped over toward the air filter, oil will run out into the filter and the carburetor.

If the filter is foam you can clean it with gasoline, if its paper just buy a new one.

The carburetor is between the air filter box and the engine, it should come off with a few bolts, just remember where the springs hook up.

Open it up, take it apart and spray everything with carburetor cleaner from your local auto parts store. When you put it all together it will run like new!

I own a 2 cycle mini tiller craftsman and I need a manual for it. I want to tune up tiller it's blowing smoke.


Manuals for many Craftsman tools are available here: http://www.managemylife.com/mmh/owner_manuals . Lots of tillers are listed just by searching for Craftsman tiller. If you can find the model number (usually on a plaque on the housing of the tiller), you can narrow down the list greatly.

I hope this helps.

I have a Model 29270 REV B00 Craftsman 4 cycle mini-tiller. Can't find a spark plug or air filter. Appreciate some direction.


Craftsman part numbers will help on this search. Typically 3 digits separated by a '.' such as 345.45687

If you can find these, please re-post the question. :)

The needle valve is sticking open. The carb needs cleaning and diaphragm replaced. Probably best taken to a shop unless you have experience with diaphragm carburetors. Dwain

Need a downloadable copy of owners manuals.


my 17 in dual tine tiller fouls up the air filter with oil and the spark plug. The prefilter, I can't tell if I put it in backwards or not. Also, the manual says to "fill the oil reservoir almost to overflowing." I don't believe that was right, because I am not sure if that is the reason oil is entering the filter box or not, but I am not going to do that again. I don't know how much oil to add, but it certainly won't be to overflow level. I am going to reverse the prefilter(screen/foam) in the filter chamber and pray that the oil does not foul up the spark plug and filter chamber again. Does anyone agree or disagree?
