Ryobi RY30000 2cy Gas trimme

Shortly after purchasing the trimmer the engine appeared to run roughl at full throttle but appeared to run ok at 1/2. Eventually it would run only at 1/2 throttle and stall out a full throttle. Now, running at 1/2 throttle it runs for 10-15 minutes then shuts off and I am unable to restart the engine.

I have bought and tried to clean the carb with carb cleaner and it appeared that it ran a little better but now it is back to not running.

This engine is only a few years old.

do you have any idea what it may be? Could it be something electrical now that it won't start at all?

That does sound like vapor lock to me. Loosly tighten the cap. If it works well even for a short time try replacing the cap. If it's a few years old you may want to consider a quality trimmer like shindawa or echo
