I have a two cylinder Mantis tiller. It has locked up and the cord is locked. I am unable to pull the cord. Any suggestions? I was in the process of using the tiller when it felt as if it were running out of gas. It stopped on its own, and then it was locked up and I was unable to pull the cord.
ANSWER : Check the oil, if not full fill it, take the shroud off, should be for bolts, fit a socket on it with a breaker bar or ratchet and turn it a few times, then reassemble and start. Hope this helped Tim

Mantis starts fine then when it warms up it stalls when you pull the throttle. Is it the carb clogged up, or do you have any sugestions?? I have replaced the gas and oil??
ANSWER : Hello. the carb is partially clogged. do this. get a bottle of carb cleaner to add to the fuel. follow the instructions on the bottle regarding the amount.

also get an aerosol can of starting fluid and a helper. start it up and have the helper spray starter fluid into the air intake as you pull the throttle. continue until the clog is cleared. joe

Wont run, not getting fuel. disconnected fuel filter, still nothing. Can spray a shot of carb cleaner directly into carb, and will run until it burns the fuel then dies. Check and getting good spark.
ANSWER : You say it’s not getting fuel? when you bypassed the filter was gas coming out of the fuel line right where it connects to the carb? If it runs on ether, carb cleaner or pouring fuel in the carb then your problem wont be the the carb or motor it will be something like a cracked, dryrotted or pinhole in the fuel line. Or something restricting the flow from the tank to the carb.

My Mantis Tiller won’t start and there is grinding type noise when I try and start it. I recently did some very lengthy trench digging over a period of about 2 months.
ANSWER : It sounds like the clutch springs may be overheated and the clutch shoes rub while you try to start it.If you loosten the screw that holds the engine to the gear box you can try to start it without the clutch and see if that is it.Good luck

My Mantis Tiller 4cycle engine starts well but when I press the throttle completedly, the tines turn very slowly. This is a brand new tiller, used only twice. The engine is sitting all the way down on the worn gear housing.
ANSWER : I had same issue with my 2 year old 4cycle. Check if the carb is moving full stroke with throttle movement. I had almost no movement at carb at full throttle, found the trigger in throttle handle was cracked and bent rather than pull cable. I called mantis and they promptly sent a new handle bar ***’y with new cable, throttle ***’y Etc and that solved my problem.

BTW: If you cannot wait, I did figure out that if I pushed the carb to open with the throttle trigger fully pulled it would run at high, but when you let go…..LOL
