How old is the unit, How many seasons?

And is the fuel filter clogged?

Did this start from the 1st time you tried to start it this season?

Do you use a fuel stablilzer like Store-n-Start or Stabil?

You'll need to check the condition of the fuel lines and primer for cracks/pinholes. If they are bad, replace them. If not, the carb needs to be removed and cleaned.
