Hello dane. Change the fuel filter, install a new spark plug and a new air filter. Then get a can of carburator cleaner to add to your fuel. let that treated fuel run for 5 minutes and you should have your problem solved. If not, you will have to replace the carburator or rebuild it.


Thanks for choosing Fixya!

Craftsman mini tiller runs great for a few minutes then revs up a little and then dies. Restarts after a few minutes and then repeats over and over.

Fuel starvation, try slacken the filler cap to rule out a blocked tank vent, if no better replace the fuel filter in the tank, if no better you will have ti remove the carb and clean the filer under the pump diaphram.

WE have rebuilt the carb and the tiller still runs for a few minutes then runs out of gas. We have put a new bulb primer, and we have new gas lines.

You definitely did good buy cleaning the carburetor and replacing the primer bulb. It is always a good idea to do that every 2 or 3 years.

But it sounds like it is probably a bad Ignition Module. Once the coil gets hot, it will stop working. You said it will run for a few minutes. How many minutes does it run before dieing?

Mower won't stay running

brad, if it runs for a bit and dies it has to be a fuel problem. i would take the carburetor off and clean it real good with carburetor cleaner. go ahead and put a rebuild kit in it. they are fairly cheap. check the fuel lines that they are not dry and cracked. blow out the fuel filter or replace. blow out the fuel tank make sure it is flowing correctly. some have screens in the bottom that plug up. the 2 wire thing on the bottom of the bowl is a fuel shut off valve. if the key is turned off it will push up on the needle stopping the flow of fuel. a anti back fire valve. gently pull up on the black piece you will see sticking up in the bowl. if it comes off easily it will need replaced or cut off. it may be coming off while running causing it to run out of fuel and die. after it sets for a second it looses its suction and falls back in position letting fuel back in the carburetor so it will run for a few more minutes . dont pry it or pull it off just be sure it is not loose.
