You have a fuel restriction. Usually you have to disassemble the carb and clean it, but sometimes you can remove the air filter, rev up the motor, somehow, and place hand over intake. this sometimes will **** the restriction through.

SOURCE: mowers is not getting gas
Check your float ... it might be sticking in the upward position when the fuel well fully fills? This would cause the mower to run on the fuel that gets inside the line when you prime it, but since the float stuck in the upward position would close the intake line from the gas tank, your mower would die after the priming fuel is spent.
[The float is located inside the metal bowl beneath the carburator usually, and can be opened by removing a single bolt/screw in the center of the bottom of the bowl. Be careful to pay attention to how the valve-pin attached to the float is attached; usually it's just hooked on very loosely. Thouroughly clean the float, pin & inside of the bowl, then reassemble after making sure the float moves freely.] If the problem isn't solved by this, you might have an obstruction (like a leaf-cutter wasp nest) in your fuel line between the gas tank & carburator? Check the float first.

Try removing the brass bolt that holds the float bowl on the carburetor and cleaning ALL the tiny holes in it. Use no metal objects on it as it is also the main jet of the carburetor. Carb/Choke Cleaner aerosol spray works well here. Pay close attention to real small holes near the top in the unthreaded portion of the bolt. Remember, no scraping with metal and no metal wires thru it.
