It is probably your throttle cable freeplay. If there is too much freeplay the enginge thinks the cable broke and tries to shut it down. Try taking away some of it. It is easily done by pulling back the rubber boot that covers the cable adjuster. I think it should have about 1/4" at the most of freeplay. It should say in the owners manual.

Does the cooling fan ever run when the engine is hot? If not, you may have a problem with the fan thermostat.

For the record, spray carburetor cleaner does no good if it's sprayed on the outside of the carburetor with the engine running. That's not what it's for.

I have seen this on a few machines. Start tracing wires. Ground wire from the key is the first on Id check. Grounds on these machines go bad from vibration and rough terrain. Not to mention silt in the water.
