If the gas is higher that the carb it will not have a fuel pump. Have you unhooked the fuel at the carb to see if fuel is getting to the carb? If it is not you have a blockage in the tank or fuel line or a clogged filter. If fuel is reaching the carb you have a stuck needle.

running rich will make it run colder.....I wouldn't run it anymore til you find theproblem, it will burn your valves. air leak in your intake/carb is more than likely your problem , check for cracks in the intake manifold , leaking gaskets

There are a number of things that can cause this, depending on the engine fitted. Assuming a Briggs & Stratton V-twin...

Check that the carb solenoid under the float bowl is connected, has battery voltage when the ignition switch is at 'RUN', and is functional.

As a quick check, with the engne OFF, turn key to 'RUN' there should be an audiable 'click' from the carb if the solenoid is working.

After that, check that the fuel pump is delivering fuel (disconnect output, and crank engine). SHould be a good flow.

I have a Sears 42" deck mower. It keeps stalling. Sometimes uphill but also on level ground. Gas in filter is present yet just shuts down. What could this problem be?

Most likely this is a fuel pump problem or a float problem in the carburetor. Most carburetors can be cleaned and rebuild but most owners will not
have the proper equipment to do a thorough job. Take it to a good
servicing dealer for his advice and estimate. Sometimes there is a
gasket or a valve problem and a good experience mechanic can
tell a lot by just listening to the engine for a few seconds.
