Craftsman Weedeater will not stay running

I have a craftsman 21 inch weedeater that when you prime the engine it will run and then shut off. It will not stay running after the prime gas is burned. It has a brigs and staton 5.5 hp engine. I have change the plug and ensured the gas was fresh. Any help is appreciated.

Are you certain this is a briggs engine? Sure sounds like a tecumseh. What is the engine model#? In either case, you'll need to do a little carb work.
