B & S model 9502-97041-01 starts fine but won't run unless the primer is constantly pressed. It has a new gasket/diaphram but is starving for fuel. It is clean, just doesn't pump fuel. I'm lost.

Could you verify the model number for correctness.

Use these links to clean your carburetor. Look closely at the main nozzle.

Removed carb. Removed main jet screen but was unable to press jet out from carb throat. Checked main jet by inserting small drill. Removed prime button. Sprayed every orifice with carb cleaner and blew it out with high pressure air. Reinstalled and it now operated normally. Tnx Airman
