Thanks for the link. Didn't see that one. I had already cleaned the carb, but I just tried it again using the bread tie idea to push through the ports. Still have the same results on the mower. I did notice that the float and needle DID NOT make an obvious clicking noise (as heard on the video form the link). The click I heard was very subtle and the needle valve felt sluggish, though I do not have a comparison for it. I have a feeling that a fuel filter would have helped, if I can get it working I might install one.

Thank you for your question.

Usually when the mower starts and stalls, right away it has a dirty carburetor. First, make sure the fuel is no older than 5 weeks old. I would think the fuel is fresh this late in the mowing season. Next check the air filter. If the air filter is plugged the mower may not run. If the air filter is clean and the fuel is fresh, I recommend cleaning the carburetor.

To clean the carburetor you have to remove the spark plug wire and tip the mower on to its side. Make sure the oil fill tube is towards the ground. Then remove the float bowl nut on the bottom of the carburetor. Some fuel will leak out so do this in a well-ventilated area. Remove the float bowl, clean it with carburetor cleaner, and dry it. Do not get carburetor cleaner on the rubber gasket. The cleaner will expand the rubber and renders it useless. Next, put the straw on the spray nozzle of the carburetor cleaner. Spray the cleaner in to the holes where the float bowl nut came from. These are the fuel pick up tubes. Once those are flushed, clean the holes on the float bowl nut. I recommend cleaning the holes with bread tie wire and carburetor cleaner. Then assemble the carburetor.

Tip the mower back up right and test the operation. If the engine does the same starting and stalling, I recommend replacing the carburetor.

I found a video that shows how to clean the carburetor. Click here to watch the video.

I hope this is helpful.
