Question about Poulan "" Push Mower
Sounds like the main jet in the carb is clogged. It will operate on the choke circuit but not on the main circuit. The main jet needs to be cleaned.

So many possibilities, so little data... <grin>
When you say "clean gas", do you mean that you added "fresh" gas, or that you emptied the tank, and refilled it with "fresh" gas?
a. remove the "float bowl" screw, and put a regular "bowl" or pan underneath to catch ALL of the gas as it comes out.
b. if the gas is totally "clear", then it (probably ain't the gas), but... if it's "yellow", it's old and/or contaminated; alternatively, if there's any water (which may appear as a grey-ish liquid) then it's contaminated; also, don't forget to check the gas from your "storage" can, the same way...
c. re-install the the screw, and put some *FRESH* gas in the tank.
d. pull the spark-plug, and clean (or replace) it.
e. prime it, and crank it, and it should start right up.

Does it turn over? If it does, what happens? Does it sound normal when its cranking? I need more information to help. Is it a push mower or riding mower? Does it start by key or pull start?

SOURCE: mine will not start without
If you are putting fuel on to th fillter and it fires it sounds like the choke is not working right. Take of the air fillter and look to see if the butterfly is fully shut when pulled on. If it is a primmer pump look in to see if there is any fuel comming up when pumped if they are both working then try putting fuel into the plug hole and see if it fires if it does then it is a fuel problemTake off the carb again know you said it is clean but remove the main jet valve in the centre of the carb and clean it every hole blew out and 100% spot less rebuild carb and refit to mower hopefully that should short you outl davidson lawn mower tech
