Sounds like it's starved for fuel. Usually this can be fixed by cleaning the carburetor and/or installing a carb kit. What are the model and type numbers stamped on the engine?

sounds like your choke is not shutting all the way. Throttle pushed all the way up should shut the choke, if you can look into the intake of the carb to see if the butterfly is shut and if not loosen the cable sheath clamp and side the cable until it does shut it and make sure the lever is still in the full throttle position

Lawn mower will start when primed but will only run for few secon

It starts because of excess fuel from priming. It usually then gets it fuel from main jet in carb.

You need to find the main jet and run a fine piece of sturdy wire through it. That will restore fuel flow so your mower can continue running after the priming fuel is gone.

This is a good thing to learn. Main jets tend to clog a lot on mowers these days.

Shuts right down after starting , when i prime it , it just makes a hissing sound

If it started and ran well already this season, then it is probably some blockage in the carb. Does it have gas? If you prime it and it starts and dies, it is most likely the carb or float. You have to take the carb off disassemble and clean it out. It is either some debris in the main jet or a stuck float valve. Clean things up with carb cleaner and put it all back together. Should operate fine them. Good luck.

Mower starts fine but won't stay running. I have

Have you checked to make sure the jet in the carburetor is cleaned out. If the mower starts with primed fuel but shuts off after that fuel is burned out, you have some blockage not allow fuel in to the intake.
Good Day.
