Briggs and Stratton 675E runs then dies within seconds

I purchased a Huskee Front Tine Rototiller, CARB Compliant machine May of 2012. It has a Briggs and Stratton 675E Series 190cc motor (6.75 ft lbs), 126M02-0335-B1. I used it in June of this year, and didnít try to start it until last month. It started and ran for about 20 seconds. After the 20 seconds it just stopped and I could not restart it. I pulled the plug and it was fouled. I cleaned it, checked to make sure it would spark and put it back in. It started and ran for 2 seconds, then died. I pulled the carb and cleaned it, and replaced the needle and seat with new ones. It started ran for a couple seconds and died. I taught I screwed up the carb, so I ordered a new carb. I put that on and it ran for 3-4 seconds and died. I was unable to restart it. If I wait a day or so, it will start and run for a couple seconds. After that it will not restart. At this point I think I should replace the plug. It is a Champion rj2yle. I googled this plug and it seems like it can be troublesome. Can anyone recommend a replacement for the rj2yle? Have I overlooked something, and am going down the wrong path?

Thanks in Advance!

Definitely change the plug. I don't know what plug your motor manufacturer recommends but you should find out and use that one, gapped correctly. That, however, is unlikely to be your problem.

Try to run it with the gas cap open to ensure the gas tank is properly vented. Other then that I cannot suggest much since I am not familiar with your motor. If there is a choke I would attempt to make sure it is working properly. You said the motor was carb compliant which probably means that you cannot adjust the jets, however, if you can you could attempt an adjustment. You might be running too rich.

I should have mentioned I tried it with the gas cap off, made no difference. No adjustments on the carb, but when I pull the air filer, I could see the choke would move everything correctly. The Champion plug is "recommended" but I think it is only for CARB compliance, I have a feeling I need a hotter / colder plug.

Did you drain the old gas? It sure sounds like the bowl nut(main jet) is clogged even though it is a new carb it wouldn't hurt to check it, the pic below shows the holes to clean. Have a good one. Geo

Yes, old gas was drained. I made sure to clean out the jet on the old carb. The new carb I haven't pulled apart yet. I think I'll do the plug, and then check the carb to make sure the float is working correctly and hit the bowl nut with carb cleaner before I reassemble.

So I grabbed a new plug on the way home. The auto parts guy cross referenced the plug to a champion ez start plug. Fired right up after I installed it. Looks like the rj2yle plugs can be the problem in these motors.
