Question about Poulan "Poulan" Push Mower
Mower is less than three months old, less than 6 hours running time, so I assume there is no varnish buildup. Gas is fresh.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Assuming it is a B+S engine, if it starts fine and runs rough and smokey as it gets warm and will not get enough speed, the problem is with the Diaphragm between the carb and fuel tank, it costs about £3 and is easy to fit if you have a 10mm and 13mm spanners and a cross heded screwdriver, ver annoying but relatively cheap and simple fix. Max.

Sounds like a common fuel problem you need to remove carb & fuel tank and unless you can get a compressor they need a good blast out you may even take carb apart & check diaghram they have very small jets in fact most lawnmower shops have a sonic bath for this

these carb /air filter housing gaskets were notorious for warping? there are 2 screws behind the air cleaner remove those and disconnect the throttle cable pull the black square housing off and replace the gasket with a rubber one from local mower shop?

Check air filter, replace if needed.
Check engine oil level and condition. Add/change as needed.
Check spark plug. Clean and re-gap if needed (.030 gap)
Drain the fuel and replace with fresh premium grade gasoline. If your local station has a notice on the pump regarding Ethanol content, drive to another station!
Most owner's manuals specify 89 octane or higher and most warranties become void if E85 fuel is used.
And finally, Oxygenated fuels are not your mower's best friend. :-)
Hope this helps.
