Hot starting problems

My normally trusty husky brush cutter is playing up. Its fifteen years old now. It's starts a treat when cold, but will it heck as like start again even if it's only been running for a short while, or even if it's really hot. I am a bit of retard when it comes to mechanics. Anyone got any tips?

Good cold starting and poor hot starting is usually an indication of an over rich fuel/air ratio. Possibly blocked air filter, adjustment or high float level. Assuming you've checked the normal stuff like oil ratio, spark plug and choke not fully coming off.

Good luck, Paul

Check the gap in the spark plug  If its too wide when it heats up the gap gets bigger and the spark cant jump.

Thanks, I will have a look
