primer bulb

This is about a 4 cycle quatto lawn mower, briggs engine/It has a bulb which you prime to start. I can start it and cut part of the grass, but then it stalls.- When this happens, I notice that the bulb does not come out like it should when primmed. I called and someone said itwould not do any good to buy a new bulb. It sounds like the diagram- what do you think? It is about 3 yrs old.Thanks in advance.

Hello greencgk!

I think you are right on the money. The diaphragm is probably the cause of your problem. Clean the carb well when you change the diaphragm too. Make sure the screen on the pickup tube is clear. Let us know how it goes!
