I have a Honda GX35 eater. It runs for about 15-20 minutes

Customer Question

I have a Honda GX35 weed eater. It runs for about 15-20 minutes and then dies. We notice there is no fuel in the primer bulb. If you prime it, it still does not want to run. If you leave it sit for awhile, it sometimes runs. Last year we replaced the carburetor, and it ran fine after that. This summer it has a problem. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you kindly.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?
Customer: Since this spring. Ran fine last year.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: If we can. We live in a small community in Alaska.
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: No. Just need to get it to work!
