Question about Power Tillers & Cultivators

1 Answer

Please Help I have a very serious problem and have waited for a brochure since 03/30/08 on a Craftsman mini gas tiller/edger which I purchased from a Sears store in Altus, Oklahoma. At this time of purchase they did not have the brochure to go with the product I purchased that day. So, I took them at their word and promise that I would get one within a week or two to no avail. I made a couple of calls after this time frame but they just seemed to not care at all since I had already purchased the tiller/edger. They would always tell me they would assure certainity of my receiving a brochure but as of this date 09/01/08 still no brochure. They (3 different employees) at this Sears store all told me I would get the brochure but they never kept their word, their word I took on faith and kept hoping I would get the brochure which they earnestly promised all along I would get. This is a shame that Sears would allow such behaviour. I am 78 years old and living on a very fixed income so therefore I ask that Sears finally do the rightful thing and see to it I after such a long period of time finally I will get the brochure I have been promised all alone. The serial # is 1A266DKD-886, item # 21AS144R799, model # is 316-29Z71D.

If you go to, then go to parts,then type in the model number, then look to the right and scroll down slow you will see a spot that says get manuals for this model and click on view manuals then any manuals they have you can print them out.

Last year I started the tiller and while I was using it it just quit and it wouldn't start again. I replaced the gas and put in a new spark plug and still couldn't get it started.

Did you remove & drain the bowl below the carb. If that doesn't work remove the carb & clean out all ports & passageways. Use non-ethanol gas in the future & remove all fuel at the end of the season including in the carb & fuel lines.

Crank engine a few times. If spark plug is dry carb needs dismantling and cleaning. Probably gummed up.

Does this use mixed gasoline or regular gaso;ine

If your model does in fact have markings on it or in the manual indicating it is a 4-cycle tiller you need to put straight gas in the gas tank. It will also have an oil plug/dipstick on the motor that you have to check to make sure it is full of oil. The oil should be checked every time you fill the gas tank for the safety of your motor.

I own a 2 cycle mini tiller craftsman and I need a manual for it. I want to tune up tiller it's blowing smoke.

Manuals for many Craftsman tools are available here: . Lots of tillers are listed just by searching for Craftsman tiller. If you can find the model number (usually on a plaque on the housing of the tiller), you can narrow down the list greatly.

I hope this helps.
