Hi, my name is ***** ***** me review the issue, and I will be more than happy to help resolve it as quickly as possible.

If it was starting and running briefly, then the carb needs to be pulled and cleaned. You can try removing the bolt on the bottom of the carb and just cleaning out those holes, but it is best to clean entire carb. You have a clogged idle jet and that is why it will not run long once started.
