How long are you waiting to restart 15-30 mins? Clogged fuel filter will prevent flow and after sitting the debris will fall away and allow it to restart and run until its clogged again which is about 10-20 minutes of running. It doesn't have to fall perfectly in between those times, they are the most common.
