Such problems are almost always fuel related, as TB mentioned. We have had similar episodes and found that it often means pluggage in the jets of the carb. Old fuel or dirty fuel can lead to particles becoming lodged in these very small passages.
Fortunately these carburators are very simple devices and tearing them down to clean them is relatively simple... just don't lose any of the bits.
