If it was produced in the last three decades it is almost certain to have electronic ignition, probably from a self contained ignition module.

It isn't possible to check very much other than to ensure the flywheel magnet is still powerful, the air gap is not excessive, that any ground connection is clean and secure and the wiring to the engine stop is not short-circuited. If a resistor-type suppressor spark plug cap is fitted it should be checked for continuity.
If all is in order the module should be replaced...

    As an afterthought, Honda and other engines tend to be fitted with a low oil sensor that will prevent engine damage by cutting the spark and stopping the engine. It would be wise to temporarily disconnect it and test it.

Tiller will not continue to run. It has good spark. It will start if primed through the carburator but once the prime burns off it dies.


If fuel sits in the gas tank 3 months, the fuel deteriorates and it gums up the filter in the tank. You need to put stabil in the tank. This has happened to me over and over. It is best to dump out the gasoline if you don't use the tiller within one month. Some people who use chain saws commercially dump all the gas out every day and start over the next day. The symptoms are the tiller won't run at high speed at first, then as it gums up more
it won't run even at low speed, then becomes hard to start.
The gum is hard to see. Pull out the gas line to get to the filter and change the filter. Filters are only 3 or 4 dollars at hardware stores.

I have a Troybilt weedeater that works great until I put the tiller attachment on. With the tiller on, it dies after a few minutes of use. Any ideas?


Hello dane. Change the fuel filter, install a new spark plug and a new air filter. Then get a can of carburator cleaner to add to your fuel. let that treated fuel run for 5 minutes and you should have your problem solved. If not, you will have to replace the carburator or rebuild it.

Honda 4 cycle cult wont start. New gas primer primes new spark plug. Won't fire.


Check the start switch and the start switch line. If not broken, check the choke switch and try different settings to start it. Last check the gas line for any cracks. This tiller can be easily be flooded when pushing the prime button..

Honda Tiller revs and works for 30 seconds and then shuts down.


Hello. you have some gunk in the carburator. Get a can of starter fluid or carburator cleaner aerosol and a helper. Remove the air filter and start it up. Spray a little starter fluid into the air cleaner to keep it running for three or four minutes and the problem should clear. If it does not clear the carburator will have to be disassembled, cleaned and rebuilt. j.

Tiller won't start.


I recently had the same issue with a tiller that hadn't been started in over 8 years. Turns out that old gas had left a varnish coating in the carburator keeping the gas from feeding. Rebuilt the carburator with new float, needle valves and bowl, new Welsh plug. Fresh gas and two pulls later it went to churning. Took a short time to adjust the two needle valves for idle and full throttle and we went a-tilling.

Honda mini tiller stalls


Sounds to me like your main fuel jet is clogged if it will idle (different fuel supply) but not run with open throttle. When you open the throttle the engine gets more air and not enough fuel and quits.

Solution: Open (disassemble) the carburator and spray carburator cleaner through every orifice. Make sure you actually get cleaner THROUGH all holes. You've no doubt got fuel "varnish" in the jets from letting the equipment sit idle for long periods.

Prevention is the key: Always use a fuel stabilizer (Stabil) in your fuel. Mix as described on teh package for the "long term storage" concentration — generally double the dose of "normal" concentration and you'll minimize future problems.
