Briggs & Stratton won't stay running

I have a Snapper mower with Verticl shaft B&S 5 h.p. engine and it starts and runs for about 30 seconds and stops. Chioke it and agin starts and runs and then stops. Has new plub, new gas, . Float bowl screw on bottom of float bowl shoul dbe how many turns out?

Where should I look first?

Hello bobolink!

Sounds to me like you just need to clean the carburetor. If it ran fine before, then the carb settings should be ok where they are once the carb is cleaned.
