Looks like you went offline, I switched to Q+A sorry for the long wait

Hello my name is ***** ***** I can help you with your problem.

The carburetor has a float that opens a little needle valve and closes the valve when the carb is full. This is most likely where your problem is.

You need to remove the carb and open the bottom, make sure the float moves freely and needle valve can close
