Echo TC-10 tiller issue: Difficult to start, and then when it starts, it runs for about 5 secs and then stalls. Plenty of gas. Checked spark plug and it's full of oil. What does that mean?

SOURCE: mantis tiller sv-4 echo engine: no spark from coil

There are only 4 parts to the 2-stroke Mantis ignition system: the spark plug, the "kill button", the flywheel with embedded magnets, and the coil with integral plug wire. There are no "points" to clean or refurbish. If you've tried a new spark plug, unplugged the wire leading up the handlebars, and the magnets on the side of the flywheel are strong enough to attract a screw driver blade, then it must be a bad coil. That's all it could be. End of story.

Cruising the internet I see where these Echo coils go bad all the time. You can order the coil, but if the machine hasn't run in several years the carb will also need cleaning. So one thing leads to another. The gear box grease also needs replacing each year. What I'm trying to tell you is these are disposable tillers and due to length of time, incomplete care/ storage, ....whatever, this one's time is up.

Sorry.

Sounds like it's flooding either from over choking or the inlet needle in the carb is leaking. Have you removed the plug and blown out the cylinder and plug with air and then tried to restart? Be careful not to keep cranking with the choke pulled out. When it 'hits' ONE time, move the choke halfway in and crank again

How to start Echo ppt-266


Fill with correct fuel/oil mix. turn switch to I. Pump primer bulb 4-5 times. Turn choke on. Pull starter until engine fires. Turn choke off. Pull Starter until engine runs & allow to warm up for 10 secs before trying to engage throttle. If it doesn't start after 3-4 pulls with no choke then try same sequence again. May have to use 1/2 choke after engine fires. If it still won't start then something is wrong with it & it will need to be checked by a service agent.

I'm unable to start my tiller. The primer pump is cracked. Could this be the problem?


Yes. Here is the parts breakdown.

http://www.alamia.us/Mantis_Parts_s/152.htm

You can get the same part at Home Depot because the bulb is very common (Echo and Ryobi, etc.). The engine is made by Echo so there are many common parts.

Whenever the mantis is to sit for a while run the carb out of fuel first. If it does sit, add a 2 ounces of 100% acetone to the fuel tank and run the tiller for a while.

If it starts but will not run reliably then watch this video and do as stated. It is not very difficult to maintain.

When started will not throttle or dies afetr a minute of running


i love the manits tiller they are very strong and dependable.....they are the same as an echo tc210 i parts will interchange.

your issue is more than likely a plugged fuel syetem, flush the fuel tank, replace the tygothane fuel lines with echo 90014 fuel line, and tank grommet, clean and rebuild the carburetor, install a new tank vent for good measure....untill should spring back to life.....hope this helps and good luck ;)

Tiller starts then stalls


The air filter should be replaced. Also remove the old gas and put in new from the gas station. Finally, if you didn't change the spark plug from last seaon, do so as it is a small amount of cash for a lot of easy starts.

Stalling


Check your batteries, they might be ready to die. Stalling is a sign your are not getting enough power to the scooter and when you do, it runs until they run low again. Kinda like a cell phone batt, ones it dies and you wait awhile you can get it started but only for a couple of minutes before dying again.
