Hello, and thank you for choosing Just answer. My name is***** will be happy to assist you. The symptoms you are describing, indicates that your carburetor will need to be cleaned.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I cleaned the carb over the summer. It ran for 10 mins in the summer till I shut it off and it ran for another 10 min till I turned it off. Today is the first time I have used it since the summer. I purchased gas yesterday and added 2 cycle oil with stabilizer. Once I get this going for 2-3 mins runs great and then cuts off. It will not restart. If I wait 30-40 mins it will then start up after about 3-4 pulls runs for another 2-4 mins. So are you still suggesting a carb cleaning or could it be something else.

Is there some type of adjustment to the carb other than idle?

Can you get the make and model numbers for your engine for me? Due to you having to wait before your engine will re-start, we need to determine if our problem is ignition related.
