Hi there, YES manual VERY misleading, starting it all revolves around the Choke, if I remember correctly, place lever on Choke, start then move lever to on position, good luck

    The choke lever is labeled incorectly! Start the engine with the choke lever in the 'OFF' position then after a few seconds move the lever to 'ON'. My PC3200 is not fitted with a fuel valve either.

Gardening with Rik unboxing and review of the Gardenline Aldi lawnmower
how much work has it done
did you tip the mower over the wrong way and oil got into the valve cover or carby

the carby is a metal bowl with a 10 mm drain nut
undo that see if fuel is clean and flowing

best bet is it needs a carby clean or throttle cable adjustment
maybe even a govenor adjustment

Turn on fuel cock, motor starts, after a few minutes gas starts flowing out of the carb at the air filter

The needle valve on the carbureator float is stuck open or has a little debris stuck in it. You will have to take the bowl off and clean out the seat for the needel valve. A Qtip or small wooden dowel works best.

I suggest that the rings are now soft or broken and not sealing or the valves are stuck open unless it is a 2 stroke. Gen sets have a low oil cut out switch that stops the motor immediately there is insufficient oil in the sump. I wonder why it allowed you to run the engine for 10 minutes as it will not even allow you to start with no oil.

You have a fuel delivery issue that can be dealt with by cleaning carb or replacing it. If you do replace carb has to be adjusted to the motor.(idle, mixture)

Poulan WT usually starts Ok but after it is used for 8-10 minutes it cuts out when when trigger is released. Happens mostly when you're cutting & then release trigger when cut is done.

If the carb hasn't been rebuilt in a few years, often the fuel pump diaphram gets weak or the little flap check valves get deteriorated. Carb kits are about $20.

Check vacuum line from #6 intake runner (port side rear cylinder) to the fuel petcock valve. The valve is vacuum operated for safety. It cuts off fuel to the carbs when the engine is shutdown. Hose could be cracked or diaphram in valve is cracked. Easy to inspect the valve.

Cuts out after 10 minutes

Sounds like fuel tank vent problem , air has to get into tank
sometimes its vented by fuel cap but a lot of hedge trimmers use
a duck bill valve right thru tank or hooked to hose .
To test if this might be the problem loosen gas cap when it starts to die .
good luck
