Honda Lawn Mower starts after 5 minutes

Mower doesn't start right away-if I wait about 5 minutes, then it will start. I am mowing weeds and dirt so I am guessing it is dirty inside. My friend has offered to spray the carburetor. Your thoughts are greatly appreciated. Model No. HRS216K3PDA

Carburetor may need rebuilding not just something sprayed into it.
Have you at least changed the air filter an spark plug? When the last time the oil was changed.

If you wait 5 minutes from when? From the time you shut it off? Or from first attempt to start it? I don't see how it matters when the oil was changed last, but the air filter could have an effect on the problem.
