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.

I really need your engine number but I am going to guess that it is a 3.5 to 4 HP Briggs & Stratton with a black primer bulb on the side of the carb.
Try this the next start. Take a screw driver handle just a bit smaller than the primer bulb and FORCE it against the carb body trying to make a seal with the primer rubber against the carb body. You use your thumb if you can manage to depress the entire area of the center of the primer bulb agains the carb body. If it runs normally when you do this..... the Primer Bulb has a pin hole in it. (No joy..... read on)
If after doing the above you strill have the same problem remove the air cleaner and tighten all of the screws that mount the carb to the gas tank. Often over time the carb body will warp and then it starts getting air introduced into the diaphram that is between the cab and the gas tank. Tighten the screws. There are usually 5 of them. (Remember the body is plastic.... tight but don't break it) Then try another start.
If that does not work the diaphram between the carb and gas tank is probably damaged and will need replaced.
If you need parts info respond with your engine number or go to www.briggsandstratton.com and look it up for yourself using your ENGINE TYPE MODEL SERIES number found on the air shroud above the spark plug.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.

They are usually held in with either a small, round metal spring clip or a plastic one. A small dental type pick with an "L" shape at the end is often all you need to pry out the clip.
