Yamaha 15hp 4 stroke 2012

It starts eventually but if I shut it down and try to restart it won’t. Smells like it’s flooded. I actually see some gas coming from the carb. I had this issue last year at the end of season so I took carb off and cleaned all the internal parts well. Only used it once after that and never shut off to try. Now this year I’m in the same boat, sort of speak. Thank you

Sounds like your Idle jet is clogged. Not saying you did but don't use any silicone. It can squeeze into ports. Also rebuild the carb wit new parts. Your WOT settings on the carb seems like it's getting fuel but the idle jet seems like it's not working.
