SOURCE: where is the carburetor on
The carburetor would be located BEHIND the air filter housing and air inlet tube. The air filter housing should have a removable (by screw or clip) cover.

You turn the mower over, remove the blade with a 9/16 or 5/8 socket. There is a bolt holding shroud on, 3/8 or 7/16, there are two screws by the rear wheels, 7/16 that need to be removed. Once the shroud is removed, belt can be removed and new one put on.

remove the front black plastic plate that is stamped self propelled and replace the wheel drive belt that attaches the engine pulley (above blade) to the transmission pulley (found under the cover). When you buy the belts, pick up two or three as I seem to go through a couple per season. Hopes this helps

Carburator issue. If you have some mechanical abilty you can pull the carb off else take it to a shop. You probably left gas in it off season. Either the main jet is clogged or the float valve is stuck. Either way, remove the carb, tae off the bottom cover and clean everything out with gum out or a carb cleaner. reassemble and eveything should be fine.

Hi , it can often be something as simple as the engine needing a oil change as oil looses viscosity/thins with use ( use correct grade ), replace or clean the oil filter and a good service or something more complex which requires a full engine stripdown like worn piston ring/oil scraper ring causing oil to flow up the cylinder walls and fouling the combustion chamber or oil leaking up through the valve stem oil seals , also storing the machine tilted can cause oil to collect in the chamber or petrol to leak into the sump causing the oil to thin.
Hope this helps , please rate accordingly
