    remove the muffler and clean out the exhaust port into the cylinder with a sharpened piece of hardwood. also remove the spark arrestor screen if you have one.

    :blob3: i agree w/ khouse 150%, also may want to change the plug and gas filter, also give the air filter a look

    Was this machine ever dropped??

    Sometimes w/ redmax equipment, if unit gets dropped, the isolator/insulator (plastic piece between carb and block) will get a small crack in it and suck in too much air. Clean this black plastic piece and inspect for a hairline crack.
