Runs strong and no other issues. When sitting at idle it does perfectly...sometimes for minutes at a time....but then it shuts down as if someone turned off the key. Hit the starter button and the machine fires up directly. May run a few more seconds and the process starts again. It does this randomly and i believe more when its cold. Any ideas?

The carb probably needs taken off and cleaned. It probably has some debris in the idle circuit.

these machines were sometimes plagued with trigger issues , to be sure , see if voltage to battery is more than 15.00 volts , if so, the regulator is not opening up and causing the ecm to shut down

im no expert, but i use tons of gas powered tools (ice augers, weed wacker, mower, etc) and 99% of the time, when the randomly stall out, the carb. needs a good old cleaning.
