Sounds like fuel starvation, always start with simple things first, replace the fuel filter in the fuel tank, check the fuel hose up to the carb for signs of leaking.

Recheck spark when the unit cuts out. I am gonna guess you spent a lto of money chasing a bad coil! When a coil starts to go bad they become temperature sensitive. Time does the rest!

Runs good for 2-3 min, then dies

I would try using some solvent to clean the carb. It sounds like the float valve is not moving freely, therefore not letting enough fuel into the carb. Be careful though, solvent can be a bit rough on the engine, so be sure to drain it out of the fuel bowl and replace with the appropriate fuel before starting the engine.

PE 550 Poulan weed eater edger. Replaced gas tank that came with new gas lines and gas cap. Runs on full choke but not off of full choke. Also noticed it will run okay with gas cap off. When you...

A bad duckbill vent (the little green thing) inside the fuel cap will cause a vacuum to be created if it is NOT venting to the atmosphere. Odd that all new ones you have used are bad. Maybe try using your old, original fuel cap and the carburetor needs adjusting or at the least; a gaket and diaphragm kit installed. Carb screws are NOT user friendly, thanks to EPA and CARB emissions regulations. You can get onto the heads of them to turn them by tapping a 22 gauge automotive-type plastic wire connector onto the head, and that will give you enough grip to turn them. I would TRY adjusting the carb before getting a kit, but after 2 years or so, a G & D kit is usually needed due to the internals of the carb drying out. If you adjust the carb, this is how the manufacturer says to:

Forgot to drain the gas last fall and found it had small amount of water in the tank. Drained it out and cleaned the fuel filter, cleaned the carb out and now it starts, but runs only if the choke is on.

I would recommend replacing the fuel filter and spark plug. If this is a 2-cycle engine be sure you are using fresh gas with the proper oil mixture. If your engine has a fuel primer bulb be sure to push it several times until you feel resistance before starting and make sure there are no fuel leaks. Failing that you may need to adjust the carb fuel mixture screws after the engine runs long enough to warm up (1-2 minutes). Check your owners manual for other troubleshooting procedures. Good luck.

for any motorcycle to run you need three things. spark, fuel and compression. i see you've tried to get fuel and spark. if you have spark thats one down. dont pour fuel into cylinder. instead spray tiny bit of brakeclean or carb clean into spark plug hole. i have a feeling if you drained your gas after the carb clean the carb most likely sucked bad gas back up and might need cleaned again. ive seen it happen alot on ols bikes.

Craftsman 25cc edger has trouble starting. once started it will run for 5 - 10 minutes and then shut shut off. Will not start again until it cools down. Changed the spark plug , but it has the same pr

Dump the fuel in the tank, get new gas and new oil and start over. Get a carbeurator cleaner additive for the gas as your carb. is dirty resulting in the sporatic operation.

A spray carb. cleaner that you squirt into the air intake by removing the air filter will also work for you. In fact, when you are getting the carb. cleaner get a new air cleaner and a new spark plug. get back and let me know how u make out.
