check fuel pump diaphram is not streched or hard, check fuel filter for blockage, or fuel tank cap might be not venting, if none work drain and clean out carby bowl.

Just checked my dad's for same problem. First thought is its not getting gas from tank; line is clean and no holes. On his 22" MTD push, i took off the air cleaner housing to expose the carb. Sprayed carb cleaner in carb throat, checked for smooth butterfly valve action, and also cleaned small jet/opening on left side of carb housing. Put it together and it ran perfectly. Don't buy a kit until you at least try this, its cheaper!

I really need your engine number but I am going to guess that it is a 3.5 to 4 HP Briggs & Stratton with a black primer bulb on the side of the carb.
Try this the next start. Take a screw driver handle just a bit smaller than the primer bulb and FORCE it against the carb body trying to make a seal with the primer rubber against the carb body. You use your thumb if you can manage to depress the entire area of the center of the primer bulb agains the carb body. If it runs normally when you do this..... the Primer Bulb has a pin hole in it. (No joy..... read on)
If after doing the above you strill have the same problem remove the air cleaner and tighten all of the screws that mount the carb to the gas tank. Often over time the carb body will warp and then it starts getting air introduced into the diaphram that is between the cab and the gas tank. Tighten the screws. There are usually 5 of them. (Remember the body is plastic.... tight but don't break it) Then try another start.
If that does not work the diaphram between the carb and gas tank is probably damaged and will need replaced.
If you need parts info respond with your engine number or go to www.briggsandstratton.com and look it up for yourself using your ENGINE TYPE MODEL SERIES number found on the air shroud above the spark plug.
Thanks for choosing FixYa.
