There are two main things to check. One is the "tickler" at the bottom of the float bowl. Sometimes they can be a little stuck, or need a new seal. The other thing to check is the fuel inlet valve which is located inside the carburetor. It might be fixed with a shot of carburetor cleaner, or even just compressed air. I would suggest removing the carburetor to work on it, but it is possible to do it while it is still on the engine. First shut off, or drain the fuel, then remove the float bowl by turning the nut at the bottom. There will be some fuel present in the float bowl, so be aware of that. When the bowl is removed, the float will have dropped down and be hanging from a hinge pin. Remove that pin along with the fuel inlet valve and shoot some carburetor cleaner into the hole where the fuel inlet valve was. Inspect the fuel inlet valve to make sure it isn't pitted, and replace it if it is. Put it all back together and be sure that you have the clip on the fuel inlet valve onto the tab on the float. Be careful with the float bowl seal too.
