Thank you for your question.  I am sorry you are having a problem with the tiller. Based on your description of what is going on I suspect the problem is fuel related. First, be sure the duel you are using is less than five weeks old. If the fuel is fresh, I recommend tying to clean the carburetor again. I found a video that shows how to properly clean the jets in a carburetor. Click here to watch the video. After you clean the carburetor check the operation. If it still does not run correctly, I would check the fuel flow through the fuel line to the carburetor. If it is good, I recommend replacing the carburetor. The parts for the unit can be ordered from the following link. Replacement parts for engine model 126432-0251-E1.   I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance. Thank you for using Manage my life.Mark

Thanks Mark, The fuel is fresh as I got it from the gas station within the last few days. The gas line to the carburetor is cracked and need to be replaced and might contribute crude getting to the carburetor. Thanks for your advice and the link to the video. I'll replace the fuel line and re-clean the carburetor including the jets that I did not look for the first time.

Bob, You are probably right on the fuel line. If it is cracked, it could be causing a problem in the carburetor. I suspect once you replace the line and clean the carburetor it will run like new. Please let me know how the repair goes. Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark
