lawnmower problem

hello again, I wrote before about my ariens ls21 selfpropelled lawnmower that was leaking gasoline fro the mufler. I fixed that problem but now is another problem when I want to started doesn't started rigth away. Started after the eigth or ten pull. Is kind strenge that after start runs fine, wait five minutes started again and is fine. but if i wait couple hours doesn't want to start
again. You think if I change the spark plug I can fixed the problem.

Change the plug and make sure the carburetor has been properly rebuilt by someone.

Does the carburetor have a primer, or a choke? It sounds like either the choke is not closing fully, or the primer is not priming as much as needed, which you may be able to overcome by pressing the primer several more times than usual before starting.
