If you get out the arc wait till it idles down then start again it's fine! What can I do to search for this problem?? I was a Lincoln guy and bout this machine for 400 and really like it alot, use it more now but really need to figure this problem out
    If it is gas i would bet the governor is acting up, will need to check the linkage to be sure its free, and be sure the governor is working correctly. Also i assume you have an otherwise good running engine...ie serviced.
