Small Engine Troubleshooting Problems? Ask a Mechanic Now.
Hi, my name is***** will be assisting you.
Your symptoms make me think that there is a piece of trash in the carburetor that is being sucked up onto the fuel jet and restricting the fuel flow. When the engine dies this trash would fall back away from the jet and allow the unit to run again for a while until it was sucked up onto it again. Since you say you can restart it right away when it dies then I would eliminate a fuel pump problem or ignition problem. I believe that you will need to remove and thoroughly clean the carburetor and make certain that there is no trash in it(be certain to clean the small holes in the jets).
