Got it thanks.

Look at the discharge port on the lower cowling. See if it is clogged with dirt, that is the most common place it gets clogged. You can take a wire or an ice pick and gently probe the pot to make sure that it is clear. You may also need to remove the hose from it to clear it out.

Let me know if this is it or not.
