Question about Garden
When I put fuel in the tank it quickly leaks out. It fills the carburetor and comes pouring out. I think it may be the float and or float needle that is the issue? Anything else you think it might be? I have been all over the internet trying to locate parts for it and can't find one single carburetor or carburetor part for this model. If I could at least find the part numbers I could cross reference them if need be for an aftermarket.

The switch you are talking about is an anti-after-run solenoid. It shuts off the fuel flow when you turn off the key switch.
To check its operation is easy, turn the key on and off a couple of times and listen for a click, if you don't hear it, hold the switch between your thumb and forefinger to see if you can "feel" it click on and off.If you neither hear or feel the switch working, you will need to use a test light or meter to check to make sure it is getting voltage to it to make it operate.
If you just recently filled up the tank, it is possible that you have gotten some contamination (dirt or moisture) that has gotten to the carburetor. You will need to remove the float bowl to check this. You will need a very thin 1/2" wrench to remove the solenoid (electrical device) from the bottom of the carburetor to get the bowl off after you unplug the wires from it. Use some sort of small tray or cut off the bottom of an oil container or whatever to catch what is in the bowl to inspect it for contamination.
If you have a plastic in-line fuel filter look at it at its lowest point to see if there is any water in it. Water will look like a seperate bubble within the gas and floating at the bottom of the gas. Before removing the float bowl you might want to rig up something to plug or pinch the fuel line to stop the gas from flowing out of the tank while you are working on it
