Hi, my name is ***** ***** me review the issue, and I will be more than happy to help resolve it as quickly as possible.
Try to spray the carb with cleaner or starting fluid.
If you can spray fuel into the carb and/or cylinder and it will run briefly, you have a carb issue. You will need to remove the carb and clean it internally. The cause is a clogged jet, and it is not able to pull its own fuel to continue running. once carb is clean and free of debris in the jet(s), it should operate as normal. VERY COMMON ISSUE
Carb should be located right behind the air filter and air filter cover. Will need to remove these to access the carb
