I ran into an issue today with my LA115. I had it running fine and hoped off of it to move a small tree branch that had fallen, by the time I got back on it, it did not want to idle or run with throttle. I could get it to run on choke but that was about it. I realized it was low on fuel so I added fuel and still the same result.

Now here where it gets tricky for me, It seems to be intermittent because after letting it sit for a few minutes it seemed fine. But then a few moments later it did it again.

Any insight will be helpful.

Thank you.

Re: LA115 Running/Idle issue

Try loosening the gas cap when it starts to have the problem. If that helps then the vent in the fuel cap is clogged.
