Hows the compression ? Has it been sitting ? It could have a stuck valve .What engine do you have ?Did you try putting a little gas in carburetor ? If so did it run a few seconds ? If so its a carburetor problem ! Remove and clean carburetor .You could also have water in gas this will cause the same thing you can look in the tank and if you see a bubble in the bottom its water needs to be cleaned out and bowl of carburetor also needs too be removed and cleaned,Try these and give me results,hope this helps !

A very common problem with the GX series with Kawasaki engines. The carburetor 'inlet needle' sticks open and fills the crankcase with fuel. When checking the oil, it can be difficult to see the gasoline and the level appears to be OK. Remove the dipstick and smell the oil, you may detect a gasoline smell. Also, drain the oil, and you may find much more fluid than you expect.
The solution on newer mowers was to install an 'in-line' shut-off valve to keep the fuel from syphoning into the carburetor. The inlet needle and seat in the carburetor is NOT replaceable, so a new carburetor is the ultimate solution, but VERY expensive. Installing and using an in-line shut-off valve is more affordable.
Also, this situation is common when machine is transported on a trailer, as the bouncing causes the needle/seat to leak. When transporting, always turn off the fuel supply to the carburetor.
