Question about Garden
Most pumps on this type of machine are vacume pumps, they will have a third pipe that connects to the engine ( usually the rocker box ) where it takes a positive and a negative pulse from the engine, if the pipe is not connected or cracked it will not work, the pump itself is normally seale and non servicable, the engine may also have a fuel shut off solinoid in the bottom of the carb float bowl, if this is faulty or is not gettinf a 12 volt feed it will stop fuel to the main jet.

Sounds too lean.
Can you cover the air intake with your hand 90% or use the choke a bit and then load the engine to see if it runs better?
If you ever find a carb with manual high and low mixture adjustments that will fit yours......put it on and keep it on.
You can usually get then from older tractors.

If it starts cold and runs for 10 min then it sounds like the fuel cap is not venting properly, try runnin engine with fuel cap loose and see if it dies. 9 times out of 10 the fuel cap is the culprit. Let me know

Sounds like you may have a problem with Choke adjustment, or perhaps a broken choke cable. Do you have a workshop manual?

Obviously, you are running out of diesel supply from the supply tank.
1. check to see the level of gasoline, acquire some more when necessary to be refueled.
2. Give the ignition another spark, should power on.
consider how the power button is turned on. The kind of engine could require several switches before the engine powers on completely.
The engine is not expected to malfunction without any external situations causing damage. For an engine situation, could be due to storage for extensive periods after usage. For diesel engines of very economic engines, would require several ignition attempts to ignite after storage the equipemtn for a while.
Mean while, check to see if all fluid are in proper quantities, than power on once more after performing fluid top ups.
Note; consult the previous operator of the device. Possible solution the problem could be made available.
Consult a technitian if possible.

It sounds like you have a stuck valve on the carb. I recommend taking the carb off, taking it apart and cleaning everything well with carb cleaner. When you remove the lower bulb on the carb there will be a float valve inside. Check the tiny needle valve for any residue. If it still looks bad (the valve) after cleaning you may need to replace it.
Usually a good cleaning once every year or two will take care of any carb problems.
