    Do you have the choke lever that sort of locks in place? The old style didn't, the screw would slowly back out, and the lever would fall at times.
    If not, my money is on the fuel filter. Easy and cheap to replace.

    Check the spark arrestor in the muffler, it tends to get clogged up and takes away power, runs real crappy.

    Bring the blower back to the dealer. I think they did a recall on the choke.

    There is a factory upgrade on the choke assembly. It is covered under warranty.
