Craftman 917 376290

Hello, I have a 4 cycle craftman mower model 917 376290.
I am able to start the engine after priming about 11 times; the engine runs then turns off. I have changed the filter, spark plug, and solid state ignition.
Any ideas what can be the problem?

You need to clean out the carburetor. Something is clogging it.

Also check your gas. Could have water in the gas.
