Defective Fuel Shut-Off Valve

After having issues with my 1 year old Premium 24 stalling and dying after about 15 minutes of use, the dealer diagnosed that the fuel valve wasn't opening all the way, thereby starving the motor for gas. A new valve is on order and covered by warranty.
The valve had always felt 'rubbery' when I turned it, but I figured that's just how it was supposed to be...all my other machines have more of a positive feel when opening and shutting the valve.
Hopefully this will solve my problem.
