Have you cleaned and/or rebuilt the carb recently? That's what I'd look at first.

Ya need to check the carb dude! no mower runs with a dirty carb. Take the bowl off the carb and see how dirty that is then judge whether the whole thing needs to be cleaned. Also make sure your fuel lines arnt clogged

To be honest, I have yet to clean my carb. It's a good thing to do in trying to fix problems. I'm in the process of cleaning a carb from a briggs generator which began running terribly. I'm sure some of my engine problems are the dirty carb I keep putting off to cleam. Laughing Be sure to take everything apart(remember where everything goes)Jets, float, ect. It's also a good thing to replace the gaskets while you have it all apart.

unless they are really worn out, 90 percent of the time, when these engine start to run crappy, it is a carb/fuel problem.
