    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.

SOURCE: I have a newer craftsman

Hi.
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.

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.

My mantis tiller with a honda gx22 engine starts then shuts off after approx. 30 sec.


If your unit has a primer bulb, start your engine . When it starts to die push your primer, if the engine comes back to life you have a carb issue.

Here is a link to the parts diagram for your engine. On the top of the carb there should be a red knob (part 215 on the diagram). This is the throttle control. Turn, push, or pull it (I don't know which) to change the engine speed. If the part is missing you can order a new one from that page. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/part-number/Craftsman-Parts/All-Products-Parts/32410/0071/143/Model-143944500/0247/1503500?keySuffixId=&pathTaken=partSearch&pathRender=modelComponent&documentCompId=10031895&diagramPageId=00001&productTypeId=&searchModelNumber=143944500&subCompDesc=Craftsman%204-cycle%20engine&brandDesc=CRAFTSMAN&modelDesc=ENGINE&blt=11&shdMod=143944500&keyId=215

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 bought the Craftsman 4-Cycle Mini Tiller , Model# 29937 at Sears this morning. It did not has a manual. How can I get the manual ? Thanks Le


Your situation is puzzling and in fact on the Sears site with your tillers' parts list, they state the manual is no longer available with no replacement either. See item no. 92 on parts list.
Here is the parts list and diagram if there are any help to you.

Don't fear. Here is a link to a 6.5HP Craftsman tiller that I also hope will help. This model is a close relative but has rear tines.

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. :)
