The tube in the bottom of the carb. is probably clogged. Remove the carb, and bowl and try spraying WD-40 through the tube, it should spray into the venturi if it doesn't try using a tip cleaner to unclog the tube.

Something is causing the float in the carb to stick in a downward position. This float tells the carb when to cut off the flow, and stuck down it keeps the channel open for gas to flow through. Empty the gas and remove and thoroughly clean out the carb, making sure you hit the float bowl very well. Worst case the float could be bad. If cleaning it thoroughly doesn't get it, consider a carb rebuild kit from the engine manufacturer or replacing the carb.

YOUR PROBLEM IS SIMPLE.
FIRST OF ALL THE HOLE IN THE PRIMER BUTTON MUST BE THERE TO POP BACK OUT EACH TIME YOU PRESS IT NOW AS TO THE GAS COMING OUT OF THERE
THE FLOAT IN THE CARB IS STUCK IN THE FILL POSITION AND WILL NOT LIFT ONCE THE BOWL IS FULL TO STOP THE GAS FROM FILLING OR YOU HAVE A PIN HOLE IN THE FLOAT ITSELF.UNDO THE NOT ON THE BOOTM OF THE BOWL WITH THE LAWN MOWER TILTED ON A 45 DEGREE ANGLE SEE IF YOU CAN MOVE THE FLOAT UP AND DOWN IF IT IS FREE MOVING SPRAY THE WHOLE AREA CLEAN WITH CARB CLEANER AND REASSEMBLE TRY TO START ,IF STILL THE SAME PROBLEM YOU WILL NEED TO REBUILD THE CARB AND INSTALL A NEW FLOAT

If it sat for years then its likely a fuel problem. Verify this by spraying a prime in the carb and trying to start it. If the unit starts then its a fuel problem. I would drain the tank and replace with fresh fuel, remove the carb and clean it.
