Try running the machine with the gas cap loose. There could be pressure builiding up in the system due to the cap being too tight. There is no vent on these systems like an automobile. If the gas cap is overtightened this could be your problem as the cap is equipped with a gasket that allows the vapor to vent through the cap. Overtightening could be sealing off your vent

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
*if all of the above are OK and/or do not improve performance then:
5) replace gaskets/diaphragms
b) use a spray carb cleaner to clean jets, holes, and body of carb

First check vent in fuel cap to make sure it is not clogged, then check to see if fuel filter inside the tank is obstructed or if fuel intake line has softened and is possibly collapsing...pump primer bulb and see if it is sucking gas into the carb...next choke engine and try to start...if it doesn't start pull the spark plug to see if cylinder is getting fuel...if so re attach plug to the plug wire and ground plug to cylinder head....pull start handle and check for spark at electrode of plug....or put a little gas in plug hole and re-install plug ....pull starter handle a couple of times and if engine starts and runs for a second, you have spark....Your problem sounds suspiciously like your carb has ingested some trash and is clogged which will necessitate a good cleaning and re-tuning...possibly a rebuild...Hope this helps... ;-D
