Default Problems with Mantis tiller

I have a 2-year-old Mantis mini-tiller with the 2-stroke engine.

I can't get it to run! It starts easily, and can idle forever, but as
soon as I give it throttle, it dies.

I've replaced the fuel filter, checked the air filter, it has fresh
gas, proper mix ratio.

What else can I do? This is the latest I've ever planted.

I had the same problem several years ago and gave the [email protected]#$%^ thing to
the local thrift store and went out and bought a Troybilt Pony. Never
had a problem again.
