Check your Main fuel relay, I had the same problem, and when a mechanic fixed/replaced, it ran in hot weather again!

I agree with the above. This model uses a 5 watt resistor inside the sealed relay,
and overtime the heat dissipated may cause a solder break. Electrical contact
cold, expansion with heat breaks contact.
