Shin T-230 "flooded"?

    Got a question.

    After I've been using my 230 for a while and I run out of gas, when I try to start it up again, I'll either have to pull the spark plug out, or at least crank it over 5-6-7-8-9-10 times with the switch turned off, the trimmer wants to act like it's flooded.

    If I pull the plug out, and crank it over 5-6 times with the plug out, then put the plug back in, it'll start right up.

    Don't matter at first if I have it choked or not, still "floods" out.

    Is my idea right? Is it flooding out for some reason when I shut it down after using it for 15-30 minutes?

    Never had a Shin before, always ran Echo and have never had this problem.
