Try this: Replace the fuel with fresh, change the spark plug, check and replace the air filter. The carb may have problems but try those things first. Also replace the oil in the crankcase. Do all those things and let us know how it went. Good luck...Lee

Mantis only runs with choke half on.


Try fuel with 30% injector cleaner (or 25% auto transmission fluid) Something is clogging the fuel route.

Worm gear has a hard spot, and doesn't turn freely. Tines will run for a short period of time and then stop.


You will probably need to replace the worm gear and any other worn parts in the gearbox. Check your owners manual for part numbers. If extensive repair is needed and your machine is several years old you may be better off with the Mantis trade in program for a new tiller. I found this to be the case with my own tiller last year. Call or go to www.mantis.com.

New mantis worked perfectly last season. Stored it for the winter. Tried to start it this spring. Pull cord is frozen up. Can't pull it out.


First, call Mantis and get their advice. It may be covered under warranty (I believe it comes with a 2 year warranty). If not under warranty remove the spark plug and try to pull the starter rope. If you can pull it out squirt a little 2-cycle oil in to the spark plug hole and pull it out several times before reinstalling the plug. Then try to start it again. If you can't pull it out after removing the plug try removing the engine cowl that contains the starter rope and see if you can pull it out then. If you can't then there is something wrong with the starter rope mechanism. Try some oil or Liquid Wrench on the spring to see if you can free it up. If you can then the piston may be seized. Again, squirt a little oil ni the spark plug hole. Take a ratchet wrench and socket to put on the crankshaft nut. Try to turn it. Do not apply to much force. I would send it back to Mantis for repair or replacement unless you are mechanically proficient enought to take the engine apart. If you have been using the correct fuel/oil mixture this should not happen.

White smoke honda mantis rototiller


You're okay the white smoke is the oil burning off the muffler. In time it will stop, just park it somewhere and let it run until it's done. If the problem persists check your air filter and make sure it's not stained with oil, if so you can wash the foam part with soap and water but the paper will need to be replaced. (DO not put foam back on unit until dry.) The oil level should be up to the bottom lip of the dipstick access when the engine is evenly horizontal.

Mantis to stroke start not very easy once it starts use for five minutes then it stops and doesn't start again I bought this from the ebay in February 2009 and I paid under £175 when I bought it the person...


either the choke is still on

or


the air filter is so dirty that it is acting like a choke

either way, replace your spark plug and air filter

if your air filter is foam, you can clean it in gasoline, just be sure to air dry it before refitting it and tring to run the mantis


the carburator can be dirty and or having the screws out of adjustment.


thy the spark plug and airfilter first
