check the fuek lines for hole and leaks, check the fuel filter and clean if necessary. remove the carbuerator and inspect the gasket; it should be soft and flexible, if it seems hard or brittle replace it. clean the carb with carb cleaner sray (available at any local auto parts store) and compressed air. make sure you get inside the small fuel rail holes. check the primer bulb for pin holes and seating/sealed properly. if that doesn't work have the carb repaired at a service center or replaced.

SOURCE: mantis tiller 2 cycle seemed as if it was running out of gas

Check fuel filter and lines, if thay are good I would get a carb kit and set the adjustment screws at 1 turn out from lightley seated to start. Don't lean high speed screw too much.
You might check muffler & cylinder port for carbon first.

SOURCE: when i press gas lever it dies --mantis tiller

Try checking the spark arrestor inside the muffler. They often get clogged and will not allow the exhaust to escape easily. I had this same issue and spent bou coup cash trying to fix the carb and intake side, then when I was going to check the compression, I removed the 3 screws on the muffler cover and 3 more screws on the spark arrestor and found the little screen was clogged. I cleaned it with carb cleaner and ... VOILA...problem solved. I hope this helps. If you call the company they will recommend a carb kit. Try the spark arrestor first (cheaper and easier, too). I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Mantis tiller starts but will not stay running

Carburetor problem. Two stroke engines use oil mixed with gas. Old fuel or setting over the winter will cause varnish and sludge in the Carburetor. Start by buying a can of carburetor cleaner and mixing a new can of fuel.
1) Dump the old fuel and check replace it with new.
2) Remove the air cleaner.
3) Pump the prime bulb 3 or 4 times, set the choke, spray the insides of the carb with the cleaner and then try and start it . It should sputter and run for a few second but chances are it will take a few sprays to clean the jets

Hi anon, if it's starting your 2/3rds of the way there. You have fuel and spark. Try and clean the air filter first and if that fails to keep it running then check that the choke isn't staying out. If all thats ok then it may be the carb gaskets.

Stan, I would suggest checking the air filter is okay first. It sounds like its struggling for air intake.

Mantis only runs with choke half on.


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

My tiller will run with choke on but soon as i shut choke off it dies. How do i solve this problem.


First make sure the fuel filter is clean. Check the carburettor is attached tightly to the engine. The passage ways and jets in the carburettor may be gummed up. Dismantle the carburettor while ensuring that you don't damage any gaskets. Spray carburettor cleaner into the orifices and then if you have a compressed air gun, use it to blow out the carburettor.

My tiller will only idle with the choke on once I open the choke it dies out. I just replaced the diaphrams and gaskits but it won't idle without the choke. I attempted to adjust the mixture screws but...


If it has been sitting for a while empty fuel tank. Prepare fresh fuel/oil mixture to fuel tank. Add two ounces of 100% acetone (available at Walmart) and attempt to start several times. Let sit for several minutes. Repeat until it acts like it wants to start.

Then watch this video and do it:

Never let tiller sit with fuel for any prolonged period of time. Run it out of fuel before storing or sitting. Acteone will remove varnish from inside.

Will run with full choke on but once i turn choke off it dies


The carb jets are clogged, it will have to be removed and soaked in carb cleaner. Sometimes that will not work either, and the carb will have to be replaced. Reason is, some of the carb passages are as fine as a human hair, so it's hard to get gunk and bad/dried gas deposits out.

You could try running something called Sea Foam (mixed in the gas)from Walmart through the tiller for a while, that MAY help somewhat.

Mantis tiller sv-4 echo engine no spark from coil mantis 2cycle tiller i got it running tryed to start it 4hrs latter same old problem wont start, plug wet with gas wont start. coil was checked by shop...


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

The carburetor needs to be removed, soaked in a cleaner fluid for a couple of hours, reattached and then adjusted.
