Engine starts but won't stay running

I have a Briggs & Stratton 18 H.P. Twin Engine on my riding lawn mower. It starts but won't stay running. I am getting a steady flow of fuel to the carb or should I say the "fuel pump". Could it be that the diaphragm in the pump needs replacing?

An easy way to know that is to start engine and give it a shot of starting fluid ,if you can keep it running by this method I would replace diaphragm.

    Thats how we kept it running, not getting fuel supply. Fuel pump replaced, still same issue. What is the electronic device on bottom of carb? Don't have book, but I bet it has something to do with it.

Varnish in the carburetor not allowing efficient flow thru the jets.

Lisa, Make sure fuel supply shut off is on and fresh fuel in tank. Could be clogged fuel filter, fuel pump issue if equipped or a fuel shut off solenoid,dirty carburetor, etc. Check the attached links,instruction and guides on trouble shooting no fuel to engine. Good luck
