I have a Shindaiwa C350 weed wacker. It started normally and after a few minutes of operation it cut off while on max throttle. I tried started it many times afterward and it wont start. Has this happened to anyone and is there anything I can do to fix this?

I'd suspect the coil, pretty common failure these days. But I'd also try a new spark plug first.

I have a Shindaiwa T-235 & that has never happened. (to date anyhow)..

But for yours I'd pull the spark plug, put it back in the boot, & hold it to the engine & yank the rope. You (of course) should see a nice blue spark.
If not try a different spark plug. if still nothing. Then I would start suspecting the coil.

How old is this machine? Sometimes an older unit will have the little gas line break off in the tank where it attaches to the filter, could maybe cause this. Probably not but wouldn't hurt to check that fuel line.
