Question about Cars & Trucks
Sounds like a blocked passage somewhere in the carburetor. If you are unsure how to disassemble and clean a carburetor (there are a lot of small parts inside) you can try to clean the entire carburetor by removing it, tipping it from side to side to drain whatever gas is still inside, then submerge it in denatured alcohol for at least 3 hours, agitating it around about every 1/2 hour. Then, drain the alcohol out of it and reassemble back on the mower. If you still have the issue, have it cleaned at a mower shop. Do not use acetone, as some carburetors use plastic parts in them and acetone will destroy them.

SOURCE: truck starts and then stalls
I have a similar problem. The engine run fine at idle but hesitate if increase the rpm with no load. If I pump it hard it is ok. I am not able to find the problem yet.

Ihave the same experience try to remove the idle jet located next to the starting jet. But be careful in removing it as it will break easily ( you will need a flat screwdiver to do it ) clean it with a wire that closest size of the jet. change your fuel filter ang drain all the fuel inside before putting it back. make sure to put some air pressure on each holes on the carb so it flush all unwanted particles inside and pls dont use silicone in sealing the rubbers inside.

Yes there could be a problem with the IAV valve. What happen's is the screen get's clogged up with carbon all you need to do is pull the valve off and clean the screen see if that help's.
