Check the Float bowl assembly.

Below the carburetor, there is a rounded metal object about 3 inches in diameter. Find the hex nut at the center-bottom of the bowl and unscrew it.

Pull the bowl off, being careful not to twist the float which hangs from the carb. Clean it out well, check the gasket for good seal and replace.

Then check the priming bulb, that round flexible thing you press on to prime, and make sure it is not torn.

Lastly, Try running the mower without the air cleaner for awhile. If it runs good that way, you need a new air cleaner element.

It starts and runs but gets hot and quits


the only way for an air cooled motor to get hot is from the cooling fins on the head and cylinder to be blocked from straw and mud
remove the cowl on the motor over the fly wheel and clean it all out

Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, 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.
If the mower is over a couple years old, then I also 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.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, count the
number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns
they were in/out.
Please do not forget to rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this help
