Echo PB770

I have an Echo PB770, runs great. But when it gets hot it dies, and won't restart. Anybody have an idea what I should look at?

Check for spark. Just set the unit up in the shop and run it wide open until it stops then check spark.

Hmmm I don't have that exact blower, but I do have an awful lot of Echo products.
When a carburetor is dirty or starting to go bad (all the new ones seem to be pointless to service and just end up getting replaced) my trimmers especially let me know by just randomly quitting when they get hot. Then they can't be restarted until theyve cooled down.
