I sounds like it sucked up some debris in the bottom of the fuel tank and obstructed fuel flow somewhere. Start by blowing out the in-tank fuel filter (You will have to fish it out with something), then load the line with carb cleaner (wear safety glasses) put fuel filter back in line and crank it a few times to pull the carb cleaner into the carb. This may dislodge the obstruction. If this doesn't work, you will have to remove and cleant he carburator. Hope this helps.

Disconnect the small spade terminal wires from the coil itself and test for spark. If you do not have spark replace coil. If you do have spark check those small wires for insulation damage and grounding. If wires are OK check kill switch.
NOTE: DO NOT START MACHINE with small wires unplugged! Only test for spark.

Over the past 8 years, the FS55 has had at least 5 different carburetors, and they have at least 3 different systems with different adjustments. Many of them do not have much of an adjustment and will not cure running problems. If you are experiencing poor running conditions, I would suggest some basic checks first. The spark arrestor screen is a big culprit on this model.
Basics to check:
1) Spark plug - brown or dark brown - OK
a) is it carbon or fuel fouled
b) is there spark
2) Muffler remove for inspection
a) exhaust screen clean or plugged
b) inspect cylinder wall/piston as the flywheel is slowly rotated
3) Check cylinder compression
Fuel starvation - 'lean fuel' condition
Basic things to check:
1) spark plug
2) spark arrestor in muffler
3) fuel lines and tank filter
4) turn adjustment needles out (counterclockwise) 1/4 to 1/2 turn
5) check impulse tube and intake boot for cracks or leaks
*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
6) replace gaskets/diaphragms
a) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb
b) fuel pump diaphragm goes against the carb body,
then the gasket towards the outside
c) metering gasket goes against the carb body,
and the diaphragm goes towards the outside
