Question about Garden
This sounds like a fuel delivery problem. If fuel filter, fuel lines, air filter and muffler are clear...that is probably the case. The fuel pump diaghram in the carb maybe has failed and it would need to be replaced. They have diaghram kits and complete carb rebuild kits available for the name brand carbs. Some Ryobi machines have been known to use a Chinese made "knockoff" carb on some of their products which has the same design and features, but you would have to cross-reference model 3 to carb model for your machine. Hopefully it has a ZAMA or WALBRO on it. Check all the items listed above and remove the carb and check for debris inside (esp. In the little round fine mesh screen on the side with the square-type cover (metering diaghram side). The fuel pump diaghram is on the oppposite side of the carb. These get brittle over time and don't flex enough to do the job and cause problems like you have.
