Hello my name is ***** ***** I will assist you. The problem you are describing is normally caused by a dirty carb or a broken diaphragm in the accelerator pump. What I suggest you do is to get the carb cleaned rebuilt. To do this you need to get a rebuilding kit and take the carb off. Dismantle rte carb slowly and clean using carb cleaner and compressed air. Use the new parts from the kit and instructions to assemble. Reassemble and you should be ok. If you require dither assistance let me know.
