Check the fuel filter, air cleaner, and muffler for plugging. Inspect the fuel lines for decay or other damage. Make sure the carburetor is fastened securely to the engine. If you still have problems, go to: for a 12 page article on Walbro carburetor theory and troubleshooting. This information applies in a general way to other carburetor brands as well. Hope this helps!

    Had this problem. Solved it by removing the spark arester screen from the muffler 7 years ago and its run great ever since.

It is most likely the diaphragm needs replacing. This is the cheapest and easiest thing to try first. If this doesn't it may require a new carburator, or you may can rebuild the carburator with a kit. The kits are very inexpensive.
