here is the repair manual per your model number this manual is for the engine, as far as the tiller portion iam not aware of any manual that can be bought over the counter. sears is kind of anal about selling manuals, however you can cross reference the sears number to the ayp model number and you can get a manual throught an ayp dealer. hope this helps

Check for condensation in the tank. Fill with FRESH gas, then if no luck, proceed ...
Main jet partially blocked. Undo bowl nut. Some models have the jet in the side of the nut - check and clean. If not, the jet is in the emusion tube of the carb - accessible throught the bowl nut orifice. Clean out & test.

I can think of a couple of things that can cause this problem.
First, it might not be that the fuel isn't getting to the carb, it could be that the float is stuck in the little bowl under the carb.
Another thing could be dirt has clogged the needle valve's pathway, not allowing it to operate properly.
If this is the first time you are trying to use it this year, then that could be your problem.
Another thing, if the tiller has sat for awhile, sometimes the fuel will turn into a gummy like substance in the carb, this can happen if the carb bowl was full of fuel when it was put away last time.
The needle valve has a small spring assembly associated with it, it could be the spring has dirt in it, not allowing it to travel like it should.
A complete disassemble and cleaning of each and every passage, opening, valve, jet, and pathway might just get you going again, just remember to write out the order that you take it apart, that way all you have to do is go backwards on the steps to put it back together again.
I hope this helps you out, and good luck !

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.
