SOURCE: My Mower won't start.
the problem is that your carbeurator is gummed from from sitting idle all winter with gas in it. Get an aerosol can of carbeurator cleaner, remove the air filter and give the air intake two squirts of carb. cleaner. Then start the mower. When it stalls again let it sit for an hour while the carbeurator cleaner works at dissolving some of that gum. Repeat the process until the mower runs again. Sometimes there is so much junk in the carb. that you have to remove it and soak it in cleaner for about three hours, and then rebuild the carb. with the proper little kit. hopefully you won't have to take this step.
Next fall let the mower run out of gas and stall then you won't have the gum in the carbeurator in the spring.

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

Hi r s jensen
Check/Clean/Replace your fuel filter if you have one.
If the mower/weedeater is over a couple of years old, then I recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instrucitons you get with the carburetor kit.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to lightly seat the jet screws.
But before you lightly seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to lightly seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.
