Started electric tiller for 1st time this year. It ran a few inches then stopped. Tried reset button, still won't start. Tested cord and it's good. Any suggestions?


Double check to make sure nothing is binding or blocking tines.
Unplug see if you can turn tines by hand ever so slightly. How old is the tiller? warranty? troubleshooting in owner's manual? Customer service may be helpful.

DRAINED GAS FOR WINTER IN CRAFTASMAN REAR TINE TILLER. PUT GAS IN WOULDN'T START. SO PUT GAS IN CARBURETOR, WOULD START BUT DIED AS SOON AS USED UP GAS. TRIED SEVERAL TIMES. SAME THING. IT'S LIKE IT ISN'T...


You drained the fuel but sounds like you did not run fuel out of carb. the carb is probably just clogged either take off carb and clean thoroughly or just try to take off the screw on the float bowl and clean it there are little holes on it that are most likely plugged up. Good Luck...

We have a rototiller, craftsman, bought new at sears several years ago. Model No. 944627591, Craftsman 9 HP, 21 inch tine width, rear tine tiller with counter rotting tines. Pinion input gear is sheared...


The model ID starting in 944 indicates your tiller was manufactured by Husqvarna. This division has since been purchased by AYP. A quick online search finds that www.needlawnmowerparts.com lists having one for $55 plus shipping. I have not dealt with this company, so I can't recommend or not recommend them.
It is very common for tiller makers to not offer internal transmission parts. Transmissions are difficult at best to repair and reassemble. Used tillers are available from time to time, check your local classified ads or www.craigslist.com to find one. If you decide to go with a new tiller, i would recommend trying www.northerntools.com or www.mytsc.com to start your search.
As far as longevity on the new transmission, Sears won't guarantee any of their parts longer than 1 year. However, you should expect a replacement part to last as long as the first one did.
Sears doesn't give year models for their equipment, but usually supports replacement parts for at least 10 years. Most equipment manufacturers don't build their units to last longer than 10 years....they want you to buy another one.
I hopethis has helped.
Good luck!

First pull your spark plug out reconnect to the plug wire and ground tot he engine body
Pull the starter cord and see if you have a good clean spark that goes to the electrode and not to the side of the spark plug.
If no spark check your off/on switch

take out plug and try to turn tines by hand and check the tines for free movement if free try to pull start it if still seized spray cylinder with penetrating oil and let sit if still wont turn over possible internal breakage-crank/piston rod

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.
