    I just had mine looked over before leaf season and had to have idle adjusted, but no other problems! I also have a PB 4300 and no probs. with it either. Had both for 2 years

    My EB4300 was doing this early this season. It was the spark arrestor screen in the muffler clogged with carbon. You can replace it, or throw it away. I threw it away, and the unit ran perfectly after that.

    I had the same symptoms happening to mine. I took out the plug and wire brushed it and it ran fine. I put a new plug in it and no more problems at all. Strange, but it fixed the problem.

    I run the all mighty 6200, I have never ever had a problem with this unit. This is its third season and shes got some hours on her. I even ran it half over with my trailor this season. All that happened was the plug broke off. Put a new one in and she fired right up. My buddy has the new 7000, I think my 6200 out shines it. Anyone else notice this
