briggs 12.5 engine on crafsman 2 riding mower

this mower was serviced about 15months ago and has not been used.i got it from my uncle brought it home replaced the battery and added gas to what was in fires up and run great when on choke, little below choke or all the way on slow.when i put it in the middle to where it should be it dies or cuts off. I sprayed the carburetor with cleaner and replaced the fuel filter with a new one .It did have trash in it.What should i try next to get it to run right.

There have been detailed directions posted in the past for thoroughly cleaning out the carb. Check the archives and you should be able to find the answer you need.

Sounds like a fuel restriction most likely in the carb.
The first thread (sticky) on the main page for this forum should have the info you need to clean and service your carb.
