After the muffler is cool, tap on it with a large screwdriver to loosen carbon and blow out with air. If you are concerned, light the fire with a long stick.

If you have a acetylene bud for a torch set, that is an option for the fire process.

It's not often that I find a carbon loaded muffler but I did have one in earlier in the week.
Okay, before you go lighting things on fire, try to start it without the muffler. If it runs fine, muffler, if it doesn't , not muffler.

You took the carburetor apart, did you see the wire mesh filter, and clean it? I hate this particular carburetor, I had one that gave me fits. There is a way to adjust it but way to difficult to describe, sorry.

I buy them at home cheapo for this exact reason. When they stop running I just return them. The employes couldn't care less what's wrong with it. They exchange them every time.

How are you getting a lifetime warranty on the units?

I took off the muffler earlier and started it up fine. Put it back on and ran it for 5 minutes until it shut off again.

I need one of those lifetime warranties lol.
