My craftsmen leaf blower starts great when cold, will run perfect

Customer Question

my craftsmen leaf blower starts great when cold, will run perfect until you shut it off. while hot machine will not start for several hours. This has been a problem from the day I bought it. I should have taken it back, but the sales were final due to store closing.
Thanks, Dan
