SOURCE: My Honda fg100 tiller started

Pull off the float bowl. Clean the bowl and bowl nut. Also in the threaded are where the bowl nut screws in there is a fuel jet / orifice with a tiny pin hole in it. If you have a inlMake sure that pin hole is clear of debris. Pull off the hose going to the carb and make sure you have good fuel flow to the fuel manifold. If you have poor fuel flow check the in line filter and the fuel tank exit port for debris. Use carb cleaner to clean fuel passages. With the float bowl remove the the main fuel line disconnected shoot carb cleaner from the float needle to the fuel hose connection and then from the fuel hose connection to the float needle. Reinstall the main fuel hose, float bowl and nut. Check for leaks BEFORE switching on the ignition.

Additionally make sure the engine Oil is serviced correctly. There is a low oil sensor that will kill the ignition if the oil level is low. For trouble shooting only you can disconnect ONE wire and check spark. If you did not have spark with the oil sensor connected and you have spark with it disconnected then the oil level sensor is either working correctly sensing a low oil lovel or... it is dirty and needs cleaned.

This SHOULD get you up and running again. If not just respond here with your ENGINE number and I will help you

It sounds like a carburetor fuel issue. Which you could try attempting to adjust the carburetor (or have someone else do such) to see if that cures the problem.

Honda mini tiller cuts off when start tilling. runs great when held above ground with no load. cut off seems to be associated with the movement and shacking when tilling ground.

Hi thermo259, sounds like the high speed adjustment is lean, find the high speed screw and turn it counter clockwise 1 half turn and see if that helps. Should cure it.
