Trimmer dies after engine is warm

Weedeater model GTI 15T

My trimmer starts relatively easily and runs well for about 15 minutes.
The motor then dies regardless of whether it is idling or wide open, and continues acting this way until the motor cools off. After several stalls motor will only run a few minutes. Recently replaced the spark plug and adjusted the fuel mixture screw and idle screw.

Hello RCM!

Try loosening the fuel cap when it gives trouble next time. If the cap vent is not operating, it will create a negative pressure in the tank after a bit of running, and starve the engine for fuel until the pressure equalizes.

Otherwise, at the moment it exibits trouble, you need to check for sufficient spark at the spark plug.
