If it has a carb adjusting screw open it up a little to give it some gas.

Technical service bulletin TS-269

Your dealer has it and he will fix your trimmer.

Check the spark arresstor screen. It may be carboned up (although 2 weeks would be a little soon).

TSB-269

To improve hot restarting issues in extreme temperatures a new insulator
block kit is available. Poor hot restarts can be caused by heat transfer
from the catalyst exhaust system to the carburetor a few minutes after unit
shutdown. The kit contains a 3 mm thicker carburetor insulator block, a
combination gasket/heat shield and stainless steel mounting screws. This
kit also comes with a new air filter element for your convenience. Installation
instructions are provided with the kit.

Beginning serial number:
T231, T231X.................. 4110001
T231B, T231XB .............. 4113088
LE231 .......................... 4114446
M231.............................4114446
AH231........................ .. 4113119
P231 ...................... ..... 4111231

There is no carb adjustment and the screen isn't plugged.

Still, I'm thinking that's what's wrong.
