    Make sure the gas cap is vented.

    Check the fuel filter if it has one.

    I would give the same advice as RaT but add that a dirty carburator or fuel can do some strange things.

    Just a couple of more questions though.
    Will it start right back up or do you have to wait a while?
    Did it run OK last season.

    You need to give us more info. All you can think of and more.

    Sounds like it could be in the fuel system, like it was said before, check the gas cap, fuel filter and carb for obstruction, sometimes the needle valve will stick if its dirty. If all this fails, try a tune up with a new condenser. A bad condenser will drive you crazy.

    Try running it and then loosen the gas cap just about the time it cuts out. If no air gets into the tank, it will starve the engine of gas even if the engine has a fuel pump.

    Good chance then you need to pull the bowl and check the float. I have a similar engine and that is where the problem was. Water corroded the bowl area and the float/needle valve were messed up.
