Your worm shaft or tine shaft and gear assembly are probably shot. Welcome to the club. Long live American manufacturing.

The motor runs but the tines no longer turn


Does the drive shaft turn and the tines just spin around it ? if not then on the drive shaft there is a gear box and you need to open that up (without the machine plugged in) and check to see why the gears aren't meshing properly.

MTD series 410 rear tine tiller drive wheels slip


I have the same issue with one I am working on. It appears the keys in the drive shaft are not rotating far enough out on the drive gear side to fully engage in the gear. I have studied and studied this and so far I have been unable to determine why. If I find out I will let you know. I am also trying to figure out what is supposed to pull these keys out of the till engagement gear.

Ryobi ry60514 tines won't turn


there are shear bolts that hold the tines on. they are designed to snap when u hit something big such as a big rock or pipe or something like that. they are designed to snap at so much pounds of pressure so u dont break any gears or gearshafts. a lot of times people dont realize this and put regular screws or bolts in it and run it. when they hit something they ussually snap the gearshaft inside the tiller. i have replaced this on my fathers tiller cause he did the same thing. so either u might need to put new shear bolts in or if u had a regular bolt in u probably snapped a gear shaft or a gear.
