Having this happen to your tool can be really concerning. While you are waiting on an expert to answer your question, a suggestion I have is to visit Sears Home Services website to set service with a Sears technician. I have attached the link below. Hope this helps!

Thank you for your question.
I am sorry you are having a problem with your tiller. I have looked up the model number you have submitted. I suspect the forward and reverse cables have been connected backwards. I have provided you with an image below showing how the cables should be connected. Please view the image and double check the cable connections. If the cables are fine, I would recommend checking the cables on the other end.
I hope this is helpful. Please reply below with more details if you need further assistance.

I just purchased a Craftsman Tiller Model 29930 with counter rotating tines. My tiller seems to be in reverse when the tines are engaged. I have to push it along. The tines only take less than 1 inch of soil of the surface regardless of the depth setting. It just skins of the grass. When I pull the reverse lever the tiller surges forward rapidly even when I the idle position. It will out run me when the engine is set to idle when the reverse lever is pulled. This is a personal safety issue. I was sold a floor model that was pre-assembled. I was handed a manila envelope with copies printed of a personal computer for a users manual.

Mickey, I am sorry you are having a problem with the new tiller. I suspect the problem with the tiller is the shifter and/or the shifter rod is not shifting the transmission, as it should. Seeing as this unit is new, I recommend having it serviced. The technician will be able to quickly diagnose the problem and fix it for you. Even though the unit was a floor model, it should have the same warranty against manufacturer defects. Please call 1-800-469-4663 to find out how to receive service in your area. I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance. Thank you for using Manage my life Mark
