the tiller won't turn much soil if it won't move or turn the tines. i found two similar questions that may offer some help while you wait for the expert response. i attached the links below. i hope this helps move those times.

thank you for your question.
i am sorry you are having a problem with the tiller. i recommend pushing the tiller while you shift the sifter. if you can push the tiller through all of the gears, i suspect the problem is a broken gear or chain in the transmission. if this is the case, the transmission has to be taken apart to determine what is broken. if you decide to take the transmission apart, be sure to note the location during the tear down. if you have a camera, i recommend taking pictures as you go. if you need to order parts, you can do so from the following link. craftsman tiller parts
