Usually caused by the needle not sealing in the seat. May be foreign material. You can pull the bottom of the carb off with 4 screws, check the bowl for debris and check the needle looks ok. Might want to change the fuel filter and the hose.

Turn the fuel OFF, run the engine unti it quits {including the choke}, turn the fuel ON and start the engine. This may wash any debris past the needle valve so it will seat properly.


...check the tank vent is not blocked. This will pressurize the carb when the engine is hot.
