Your engine parts list can be found here: http://www.briggsandstratton.com/maint_repair/manual_and_more/docsearch.aspx?enginelookfor=12h887-2314-E1

There are 3 different carb variations on this unit.

Primer type
Choke type
Auto-choke type?

On the Primer type with the plunger on the side of the carb the primer bulb gets a pin hole in it that allows air to be drawn through the primer bulb. So the engine will start an then die after priming.

On the Choke type carb debris in the bottom of the float bowl AND bowl nut will cause this.

On the Auto Choke type there is a diaphram under the carb that can get damaged and allow airflow where there should be fuel flow.

I am pretty sure that your mower has the float bowl on it. remove the bowl nut... take some carb cleaner and spray directly up into the hole the bowl nut screws into and clean it. Then also spray around the float needle.

If your still having problems.. just fro grins remove the fuel supply line to the carb and check for fuel flow. If there is little or no flow either the fuel slector is off or the fuel tank outlet has debris covering the tank outlet hole inside the gas tank.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Clean the carburetor. The needle and float are stuck closed, passage blocked or a jet plugged with debris. Give it a good cleaning.
