The float in the bottom of the carburettor is stuck. The primer feel different because the float bowl in the bottom of the carb never seals. Try tapping it gently with the broom handle again, just a sharp tap. If that doesn't work, you need to remove the carb and remove the float bowl on the bottom.

take the belt off and be sure the pulleys turn freely. sounds like you mowed through water and they may have some rust on them or the bearings in the spindles are bad. just take the belt off, turn the pulleys and find the one that is bad and repair it.
