Our mower, Model #12AGA2A6711, does a great job of mulching

Customer Question

Our mower, Model #12AGA2A6711, does a great job of mulching leaves. We prefer not to bag them, but the mulch is blown back on the mower and engine. Is there a way to prevent that happening?
JA: What's the make and model of the mower? And can you guesstimate how old it is?
Customer: Troy-Bilt Model #12AGA2A6711, purchased last month.
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Yes
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: Don't think so

Hello welcome to just answers my name is ***** ***** try to solve this together.
I'm not quite understanding what you mean it's blowing back onto the engine... Are you saying that when you're mulching the debris is coming out from around the deck and being blown onto you and the mower?

There is gas's in it right? When you push on the bulb look at the fuel filter does it bubble?
