CHANGED FUEL FILTER DID NOT CORRECT PROBLEM

good morning my name is ***** ***** ill see what I can do to help. It sounds like you have covered the basics by changing the filter which is good. I see this issue a lot and the first thing I always recommend is trying a fuel additive such as K100 or sea foam. the gas that we have now is very hard on small engine carbs and it tends to gum up the internall components. basicly you don't have enough fuel going into the engine. try running a tank of treated fuel threw the engine and see if that helps. if it doesn't you will have to remove the carb and have it cleaned

hope this helps
