Hello Matt:

From your Description it Sounds like Either the Gas Cap is Not Venting the Tank, the Exhaust Port/Muffler is Restricted or the Rings are Worn Out and Require Replacing.
Make Sure the Gas Cap Allows Air into the Tank.
If the Gas Cap is Good, then
>>The Following is a Basic Instruction File for Doing a Diagnostic on the Engine for this Problem. Any Input is Appreciated.
>>**Remove the Muffler and Make Sure the Exhaust Port is Clear.
>>If it is, then Try to Start the engine with the Muffler Off.
>>If it Starts and Runs Properly, then Clean the Spark Arrestor Screen in the Muffler or Replace the Muffler if Required.
If the Exhaust Port and Muffler are Clear, then Most likely the Rings are Worn and Require Replacing.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.
Good Luck

sometimes it's caused by too much air in the mixture---check for leaks around gasket where carb meets head--also, check the jets--make sure they are not clogged

Hi chrisputten...
Try these solutions...

Check to make sure you are getting fire/spark at the plug, if so then do the following:
Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one, normally they will be located in the fuel tank.
If the mower/weedeater is over a couple of years old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instrucitons you get with the carburetor kit.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.

This sounds like a fuel starvation problem. These units use temperamental little diaphragm carburetors which can develop assorted ills and problems. Sometimes, the problems stems from debris in the carb, fuel tank, fuel filter, or inside the carb where there is another very fine filter. You have stated that it runs 30 seconds, but I don't know if it is IDLING for that period or running at speed for that period. At any rate, check the in-tank fuel filter, ALL fuel lines, and if you can remove the fuel pump cover on the carb (it does NOT have a vent-hole), and check inside where the little round fine wire mesh screen is. Check it for debris.
If all the above are OK, then the carb may just require a small adjustment. The problem here being the type of screws used to adjust the Low and High speed mixtures on the carb. Some have splined heads, some have Pac-Man shaped heads, some have D shaped heads, and some have Double D shaped heads. Older ones have conventional slotted screw heads. On the non-conventional ones, you can use automotive type wire terminal spade connectors. Before you put them on though, you need to note the exact position of the mixture screw you are going to adjust. After that, tap the connector onto the head of the screw. If you use a female spade connector (22 gauge or so), then the end of a small flat blade screwdriver will fit the spade and you can turn the screw. I will refer you to an excellent Zama (probably your carb) carburetor adjusting tutorial now.

Try these things and feel free to post back. We will continue to try to help with your issue.

Husqvarna 223l starts but quits before I can even get the choke off, then will not even start again. Has been great until this.

I can assure you it wont be leaking oil, as the only oil it uses is mixed with the fuel.

Lock throttle trigger on,
Start on full choke till it fires,
Switch to half choke and it should fire up on high revs,
Blip the throttle and it should turn to tick over.

If it still keeps cutting out it could point to a carb or fuel takn issue.

My husqvarna 128ld starts and idles fast but only with the choke half on. Give it gas or take the choke off and it dies.

Possibly a fuel starvation issue, incorrect fuel air mix or an air leak within the fuel system
