Question about Mantis Tiller 4 Cycle Engine Handy Item Kit #3777 00 02
Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly,
If this is the LNU25 style engine it has an oil capacity of .08 Liters of oil which if not very much. If someone tipped the engine for cleaning or installation of an accessory you can get oil in the cylinder. with the ignition OFF, clear the oil by squirting either carb cleaner or fuel into the cylinder. Make sure to pull the engine through rapidly with the spark plug removed to clear out cleaning agent. Then clean the spark plug, reinstall the spark plug and re-service the engine oil level. Start the engine and let run until warm. When finished using the tiller and the engine is once again cold inpsect the oil level and the cylinder for oil once again. I think you have a one time incident at the moment. If the symptom happens again prior to your next use just respond here and I will help you.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Testimonial: "thank you will try "
When we first bought the tiller, the 2nd time we used it, the piston was locked because of oil in cylinder. Took it back to dealer and he accused us of laying the tiller down. We did not. It still doing the same thing and it is sitting up. It has never been turned over. Oil is getting in cylinder from crank case. It is almost new. It has probably only been used 2 or 3 times because of this problem.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
