Question about Mantis Tiller
Thanks for accepting my bid!
The first thing I would check is the gas cap. The gas cap breathing holes can become blocked with dirt, not allowing the carburetor to breath, choking out the motor. The best way to test this is to loosen the gas cap right before the motor dies. If it starts to run again, then you know the gas cap is clogged. If it dies anyway, then you know it's not the gas cap.
Check the fuel lines for cracks/breaks. If they are o.k., then:
You will need to disassemble the carburetor and spray with carburetor cleaner. Make sure the small screen is free of debris. (Should be able to see daylight through it.)
Use a Den Tek Brush, (http://www.drugstore.com/products/prod.asp?pid=165357&catid=1152),to clean the small portals in carb. These portals can become blocked. Reassemble and start.
If the carb. parts are more than 4 years old, you may have to replace them.
If you need further assistance on:
1. Fuel line replacement or
2. Carburetor kit replacement
Just let me know.
