We carry replacement parts, repair parts and accessories for 20 Snapper Tiller models
Gardeners trust in their Snapper tillers to prepare their growing areas for the season, easing the burden of cultivating land by hand. But when their tillers smoke, misfire and sputter, it can transform a peaceful hobby into a back-breaking chore. If your tiller's engine runs roughly, use these troubleshooting tips to get your equipment operating smoothly again.
The first tiller troubleshooting step is changing the gasoline. Stale gas leftover from last season acquires moisture, making it difficult to burn properly. If you stored your tiller in the fall with gas inside, drain the tank and add fresh fuel.
An engine tune-up for your tiller requires tiller repair parts, such as a spark plug and air filter. In addition to replacing these components, you should also change the oil, clean the engine, adjust and lubricate all moving parts, and adjust the throttle and choke controls. Barring any defective parts, this simple step may restore your tiller's engine to peak operating condition.
Varnish built up in the carburetor can prevent the air/fuel mixture it creates from powering the engine correctly. A severely clogged carburetor can be taken apart and cleaned and rebuilt if any components show excessive clogging, damage or wear, but it's most often more cost-effective to simply replace the carburetor with a new one.
