SOURCE: Maxim tiller won't run
Try better quality gas. I had the same problem. Ethanol too high in lower grade gas. Buy better grade or ethanol free. Mine works fine with better gas.

Take the carb apart and clean it. Carb spray should do the job. Check the little holes in the brass part that goes down thru the float bowl. Run the engine out of fuel at the end of the season, don't let gas sit in the carb too long.

Hi.....I am assuming that you have a bowl type carberator on that tiller. If so, the bolt on the bottom of the bowl, is the main jet. If you remove it, you SHOULD, see a hole drilled from the top down to a hole cross drilled thru, near the bottom. Run a small wire thru these to be sure they are clean. Other then this, I'd install a new needle and seat. You can purchase just a needle and seat set, no need for a complete rebuile kit. You will also need a bowl gasket, and if you have a primer bulb, you will also need a new intake gasket or the primer will not work worth a darn. Hope this is of some help, good luck

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.
