Welcome to GTtalk. First of all do you have gas getting to the carb? What about spark? Is the plug wet after cranking? Is the air cleaner clear? I don't how many pieces of equipment I've gotten in with the same complaint and I check the air filter and it is plugged up.

Welcome to GTT. It ran for a minute and then died. Did you just add gas? I have to suspect water in the gas. I never buy gas just after a rain or snow storm. That is when there seems to be more problems with water in the gas stations. The engine manuals usually have a troubleshooting guide to help sort through your situation. How much snow did you get? Post some pics please. Good Luck, Rick
