try using a can of carb cleaner or starting fluid to keep it running when it goes to die out. This will tell us if it is carb/fuel related or spark related. If the machine will keep running when sprayed into the carb / intake, the carb needs to be removed and cleaned. If not, the machine needs to be looked at further and we can troubleshoot from there
