Imurray 22" psuh mower will not stay running

I can start my murray 22'' mulcher push mower after pulling the cord, but it will not stay running. I tried about 20 times over the course of 2 days. The air filter and spark plug are new. I have used it this season, just mowed about 5 days ago. Any idea?

    carb needs cleaning and/or adjustment.

    Remove the air filter and spray it down good with carb cleaner.

    Wait a few minutes and try to start again without the air filter.

    See if the butterfly plate moves closed after starting. If not - you will need a complete teardown and rebuild of the carbeurator.

Did you remember to prime it first, if there's a primer button? also can try spraying ether directly into the open carb, closing the choke, and pull-starting. if it runs a little then shuts of, try saking the air filter in ether too. if it continues to shut off, it mean that you don't have gas getting to the cylinder.

Murray 22in throttle-free push mower

Throttle cable probably needs adjustment. If not adjusted properly it wont go to the shut off position. There is a clamp that should be on side of the engine, loosen the screw on the clamp, then move the cable-try pushing it forward or backward, but not more than 1/4 inch at a time, tighten after each adjustment. Engine is shut off while adjusting, once tightened crank the mower and see if that improves it. You will just have to try each direction until you find which way it needs to go.
