Bought this second hand. Appeared to be in good condition. Ran initially, then started stopping every 10-15 feet while edging. Now have trouble starting it as well. What should we try?

The carb probably needs a good cleaning, however you might get lucky, the nut holding the carb bowl on it the main jet, clamp off the fuel line, remove the bowl nut, turn the jet screw to seat(clockwise) counting the turns so you can reset it to the original setting, now clean all the holes and passages in the nut, the hole near the top is usually the problem and is usuall missed, I clean it with the wire from a twist tie, check the pic below for reference. Have a good one. Geo
