Change the spark plug, blast the carb with a VERY LITTLE shot of carb cleaner (aerosol, not pour liquid). Spray for not even one second, wait and run for ten seconds, then another quick shot of carb cleaner. Repeat four or five times, if necessary. Clean the air filter, it's in the little black plastic box, on the outside of the motor. clean the throttle linkages, on outside body of the little carburetor. You can also use the carb cleaner for this as well ($5.00). Slap her back together, and away ya go. By the way, DON'T FORGET TO ENSURE THE SPARK PLUG IS PROPERLY GAPPED FOR THAT PARTICULAR MACHINE. Good Luck.
