Toro Recycler Mower won't stay running

I have a 21" Toro Recycler Mower with a 5.5 HP Briggs & Stratton Engine. The Model Number is 20462 & the serial # is 6905203.

I was cutting the grass for the third time yesterday when the mower just stopped running. I was able to restart it but only after using the primer but then it quits running after a couple of seconds. It will continue to run if U keep pumping the primer button....

The fuel is new and I use a stablizer. I also put a new spark plug in along with a new air filter.

Does anyone have any suggestions?

Many Thanks.

I suggest removing the carburetor bowl and clean it out. There is apparently some trash and/or water in it.
