Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
This sounds like you have a piece of trash in the carburetor that is getting over the jets causing a restriction, if zig-zag it will keep it from being sucked up into the jet. I would remove the bowl from the carburetor and clean it as well as the jets thoroughly to be certain that this doesn't continue to happen.
