    Please don't use all capital letters as it's considered to be shouted and rude

    Have you checked the oil?

    We had a similar issue with ours some years ago, ours had an oil light which flashed when low, ran fine for 15 - 20 minutes then conked

    Topped up with oil, been fine since, probably about time to check it again :D

    If you haven't run it for a while, then the possibility is that the fuel has evaporated in the carb, and left a 'film' which is slowing the fuel supply entry down from the needle valve. Remove the carb, clean out, including both the main and progression jet, and try again after adding a touch of new fuel to the tank. (y)
