Check air filter, check screen in bottom of fuel tank,
New spark plug and also check the spark.
If there is a weak spark, the coil may need to be replaced.
If you have good spark, clean air filter, and clean fuel tank screen, then the carberator will need to be pulled of and cleaned out with solvent

Remove the float bowl located under the carburetor it is a 1/2 bolt some gas will poor out so put a rag under the carb to soak up the gas, you actually may want to use a small container to collect the gas or make sure the gas tank is empty, remove the float bowl after removing the bolt by grasping it and turning, the bowl will most likely have debree and water in it clean with a rag and solvent and reinstall, becareful of the ruuber ring gasket when reinstalling the float bowl, one some movers there is no float bowl if you have this type of engine the tank and carb must be removed disassembled and clean out. Do not store mowers uncovered they must be covered when not in use, water gets into the fuel system and causes this problem.

Sounds like you have dirt and/or moisture in the carburetor float bowl. Remove the bowl and clean it out. place a small pan or bowl under it when you start to remove it to catch the fuel and look for water. It will look like a "bubble" floating at the bottom of the fuel. Get a can of areosol carburetor cleaner with a long tube on it, stick the tube up in the hole where the bowl nut goes and spray it out to remove and fine dirt that may be in there. The following is in CAPS because I cannot stress enough, the safety and hazards of using the carb cleaner:
USE SAFETY GLASSES/GOGGLES AND BE VERY CAREFUL USING THE SPRAY - - IT WILL BURN YOUR EYES AND IF YOU HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN IT WILL BURN THAT TOO

The 'DIPLOMAT' series of WEBBs is bad news, its NOT a WEBB! Webb were swallowed by qualcast-atco-suffolk, who dunped Webbs tooling, & dressed up punches & commodores in thin disguises, dumped the briggs & stratten engine for their own alloy job, & charged a rip off premium for the Webb decals!
The qualcast suffolk alloy engine suffers from a WIPAC electronic ignition unit. As it gets old, it fails, sometimes completely, sometimes as it warms up. Once cool, it works for a while again.
Not too hard to replace, but hard on the wallet, £69 genuine, £40 fake! On the whole its not too bad an engine if cared for & oil changed often. better to look on ebay for a cheap used HONDA engine & transplant! R-E-L-I-A-B-L-E !............I did! ( £35 honda gc series, 5,5hp! )
