Just stopped running, changed fuel tank,spark gapped at .025 , air filter, added new fuel still won't throttle up and is hard to start. What's next?


If you have a fuel bowl on the bottom of carb remove the cup and clean well and clean the fuel jet as well. If its even partly plugged The engine will not run right.

I have a craftman 4 cycle mini tiller, running to slow. need to run at a faster speed. do not where to adjust.


If the carb has the "fixed" throttle control. Find the governor control lever with the small, long coiled spring attatched to it in the middle. It may be hooked to a metal tab that is on the back carburetor bolt. Bend the tab to your left to increase set speed or to the right (towards governor lever) to decrease.

I have a sears mini tiller,2cycle and i can get it to start,but when i try to throttle it up it dies


try it with the choke on, if this helps then clean the carb and check fuel filter if it has one,if all that doesnt help then open up low speed jet and try that, another cause could be muffler screen plugged w/carbon, remove and clean

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. :)

Tines run slow/stop even when engine is at full throttle


What is the task you are doing with the tiller? There are some uses where the tiller will stop.

Craftsman mini tiller. Are you selling this unit, giving it away or what. Your information is somewhat meager to say the least.

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

My Mantis Tiller 4cycle engine starts well but when I press the throttle completedly, the tines turn very slowly. This is a brand new tiller, used only twice. The engine is sitting all the way down on the...


I had same issue with my 2 year old 4cycle. Check if the carb is moving full stroke with throttle movement. I had almost no movement at carb at full throttle, found the trigger in throttle handle was cracked and bent rather than pull cable. I called mantis and they promptly sent a new handle bar ***'y with new cable, throttle ***'y Etc and that solved my problem.

BTW: If you cannot wait, I did figure out that if I pushed the carb to open with the throttle trigger fully pulled it would run at high, but when you let go.....LOL
