First drain the fuel bowl. Any old fuel in there will keep it from starting. Fuel stabilizer is not what it's it cracked up to be. I've worked for 6yrs at a rental yard and had no luck with any fuel stabilizer, the fuel still went bad. If after you drain the fuel bowl it still will not start, you will need to clean the carb. Remove the carb and spray carb cleaner through all the accessible passages. If this does not do it, you will need to replace the carb. For long term storage I highly recommend draining all the fuel and filling just the carb with fuel stabilizer to keep gaskets moist. Then drain the carb when you take it out of storage.

'Vent is leaking while running': can be caused by varnish on the inlet needle/seat and debris in the float bowl.
Fuel Starvation - Float Bowl Carburetor
1) remove air filter assembly
*be cautious of tearing the mounting gasket. If it does tear, you HAVE to replace it. It is part of the priming system
2) remove the float bowl fastener. This is the main jet
3) carefully remove the float bowl, the rubber o-ring/gasket will not be able to be used if it is removed, you WILL have to replace it
4) using a spray 'carb cleaner'
spray up thru the center of the carburetor
spray and clean the main jet with cleaner and 'tag' wire
(tag wire is very thin, and can be used to clean the hole in the center of the main jet)
5) clean any debris from inside the bowl or carb body
6) re-install bowl and center bolt, air filter assembly
*if you need gaskets, your Briggs dealer can supply. The kit is cheaper than individual gaskets, and all the parts needed to finish the above repair are in the kit.

This overflow can be caused by:
1. The float sticking
2. Gas inside of the float air chambers
3. The needle and seat have debris in them or a r damaged.
It is not a difficult fix but it does mandate removal of the carburetor float bowl.
You could probably do this yourself. It is much easier if you place the generator on a high work area so you can see the float and needle once you have the float bowl removed. Just make sure you do not drop the float assy so far that the needle comes out of the seat unless you have to remove the hinge pin SCREW for the float to clear the debris near the needles' pointed rubber head.
Thanks for using FixYa

When you are pull starting or cranking over the engine with choke on due you smell any fuel (Flooding of the Engine) if not then try removing the sparkplug use a small amount of gas and pour into cylinder. Reinstall the spark plug and try starting if it starts briefly then dies it is most likely fuel. Check filter and fuel lines (rubber fuel lines grow weak and can collapse not allowing the fuel to pass. If It doesn't start check the compression by placing your thumb over the spark plug hole if there is little push back the you have a compression problem should then verify with a compression tester. Overhauling the engine then might be necessary. I hope this was helpful, please give a rating if the answer was of help. Good luck and have a great weekend.
