Hi, I'm Wayne.

I'll be assisting you with this issue today.

Thank you for coming to Just Answer

Your Question is as important to us as it is to you.

I am sorry to hear you are having this issue.

What you are describing is a stuck or clogged float in the carburetor.

Remove the spark plus, add a teaspoon of gas into the cylinder, if it starts and runs 1-3 seconds, the issue is clogged carb.

You can rebuild that or replace, your choice.

I hope this helps you.

Wayne
