MAKE SURE THE GAS CAP IS VENTING. SOUNDS LIKE IT,S VAPOR LOCKING
Posted on Sep 24, 2009
The BG55 model is prone to having the choke leaver rattle loose and vibrate itself on which will stall the engine.. have you noticed the choke leaver is in the on position when trying to restart it.

How old is this unit...spark arrestor and carbon prohibit air from entering. Try with the exhaust off...

I have similar behavior. Starts, runs at idle or high speed, then just stops. I replaced the carb and gas line. Made fresh gas. Checked spark plug. I loosened the gas cap to check if venting was a problem. I removed the gas filter to see if that was the problem (have new gas and air filter on order). The screw in spark arrester is missing before we even got the blower.
Not sure what to try next.
