Hi John my name is ***** ***** well . Welcome to Just Answer. It sounds like the carburetor could have the main jet partially blocked , or water or debris in the bowl , have you drained the bowl etc yet ? Also how long has it been since it last ran good ?

I drained the fuel tank and then replaced the older fuel with new gasoline. Exactly what do you mean by "bowl"
Expert:  Briggs-Fan replied 1 year ago.

Behind the air filter housing is the carburetor. The carburetor has a bowl that has fuel in it

When did it last run ? ?
