Not that i am aware of, however, I suspect that as soon as you load it up it will die again as the load will call for greater speed, and too much fuel from the choke position will cause it to die again.
What I suspect is that your carburator is clogged up at the jets and is not metering the air fuel mxture properly. You may have to disassemble the carburator and clean it. Since the government has mandated that gasoline contain 10% alcohol, it has become a night mare for small engines that are not used very often. The alcohol is very hydroscopic (retains water) and during the off use period, the alcohol evaporates and leaves the water behind to mix with gunk and clog the needle valves.
Try removing the old gasoline. Refill the machine with fresh gasoline and add some "SeaFoam" (an additive) or any other brand additive that will help disolve the built up gunk in the carburator. Remove the air cleaner and try spraying a carburator cleaner down in the air intake while the machine is running, this way the air passages may clear while the new gasoline may dislodge the built up gunk. Note: The carb cleaner will stall the engine.
It is probably wise to run the gas tank dry before storage and only fill when the machine will be used. Stabil is an additive for storage, and it did it's job before the alcohol edict. I am not sure that Stabil will allow long time storage. (more than 3 months) SeaFoam can be purchased at WalMart, stabil is on the shelf of most small engine sales rooms such as Sears.
