I have just inherited the same mower that has not turned a blade for two years. There is no fuel cut off with this machine. I assume it is sparking? Take of the fuel tank and carb. Remove carb from tank and clean small intake filters.. Remote main jet a blow everything through. Replace all and prime cylinder with small amount of fuel and try it. There is also a square cover on the side of the carb that holdsthe diaphragm as it is a fuel suction machine.carefuly remove cove and inspect,diaphragm may be worn or damaged and not drawing fuel from the tank.

i dont understand the pulling the button - do you mean push the primer button - if you mean primer button it sounds like the high speed jet in the carb is dirty and needs service- you can attempt to start and once engine fires have someone continually push primer to keep running it ma clear the blockage - did You check the fuel tank for any water ?

You may want to check the gas cap to see if it clogged with dirt. If the gas cap is clear, you more than likely have a carburetor problem. If you need tips on carb. cleaning, feel free to ask.

Sounds like you tilted the unit enough to cause the float in the carb to open too much and therefore, the needle valve inside is stuck.
Remove the bowl and let it resit itself and then re install the bowl. If that doesn't work you may need to purchase a new kit for the carb to get the needle valve. If you find a small minut ring around the face of the needle valve replace it. That's why it's gonna leak. Good luck

Maybe it's a stuck float valve or a bad float. Had a similar problem on a TORO rider but that turned out to have a pin hole in the brass float, it filled up with gas and let just about the hole tank through the muffler. I changed the brass float and still running to this day! Note: your float may not be brass if it is a newer machine it will be plastic.
