I'm thinking you probably have already answered your own question.
Your standard fuel system usually consists of either a gravity fed system, whereby the tank is elevated on the chassis, fuel flows through the line into an inline fuel filter and then into the carb. In some systems, a fuel pump is needed to supply a better flow of fuel. You are basically saying, you took the filter off the line going from the pump to the tank, fuel flows freely which leads me to believe this may be a clogged fuel filter.
For this particular model however, there are literally dozens of potential causes, anything from a clogged fuel filter to improper fuel being used in the machine. Potentially, it could also be clogged or faulty injectors, in which case you are probably better off taking it in to a dealer to have them test that out and repair it if necessary.
Sometimes the injection pump shut off valve can be the cause as well, it doesn't reset like it's supposed to. The only way to really test that however is to simply switch the key back to the off position and then switch it back on, and see if it fires up.
Clean the carb, gas tank and fuel line (s). Replace air filter with a new one, I wouldn't recommend that you run it without the filter because that allows dirt and grass debri to enter the carb, fuel line and gas tank. Replace the plug with a new one that is recommended for your engine. Check oil level.
sounds to me like you have a head gasket leak. white smoke is caused by coolant leaking into the cylinders and being burned along with the gas. take it to your local repair shop and have them take a look.
needle valve is not seating right and needs to be replace. If you don't want to do that then the only solution is to go to a mower repair shop and get a fuel line cutoff . Cut the fuel line. insert the valve and shut it off whenever you stop mowing.
It sounds like the carburetor is running out of fuel.First make sure the tank is full then loosen or remove the gas cap when it starts sputtering to see if that corrects the problem. Then with engine off remove the fuel line that goes from the tank to the fuel pump,hold it low and see if any fuel flows out of it,if not lightly blow air backwards to the tank,(with fuel cap off),then see if the line is plugged. Next remove the fuel line that goes to carburetor from the fuel pump,crank the engine and see if any fuel flows,if so the carburetor should be cleaned by removing it and disassembling it.
a lawn mower is not much different than a car, you still need 3 things to make it run: fuel, electricity, and a spark. you say it doesnt stay running, Before trying to make any repairs, ensure that you are using the correct fuel, also make sure the fuel lines are not leaking or crimped. if the lines seem fine, check the fuel filter and/ or fuel pump. though the mower is new, they can still have faulty componets.
The best way to check the mower is to follow the fuel system first, and then the air system.
I know you've checked some of this, but its easier to go step by step from the beginning anyway:
Fuel System Check: Fuel Level, age of fuel, quality of fuel. Drain the lines to check for plugs in the lines. If your mower is equipped with a fuel filter, check the filter for clogs (Usually inline on the fuel line)
Check the priming pump and the fuel pump/suction hose. A lot of push mowers run on suction, and a small leak can be to blame, look for wet areas along the hose to trace for leaks.
Air System: Check the air filter for clogs and clean it out while you've got it out (always helps extend the life of the mower), check the air lines for clogs and debris. Check the carburetor, make sure the throttle cable is working and all parts are functioning.
If I had to make an educated guess as to the source of the problem, I would lean towards the air/fuel mixture. It sounds like the mix is too rich. A telltale sign of this would be a significant amount of smoke on start up. Try playing with the choke (if equipped) or carburetor to lean out the mixture a bit (Adding more air and less fuel) and give that a go. If it starts, I would doubt it would be the coil or part of the electrical system.
