husqvarna push motor

I have a Husqvarna push mower with a Kohler motor it has me stumped if it sits for a few days the air filter will get soaked with fuel and it will run for a few minutes until it dries out then it won't start I've replaced the plug ,air filter, removed the bowl and fuel tank inspected the hose that creates vacuum from the crank I'm not really a small engine expert so I'm at a loss any help would be greatly appreciated

It would help if you provided the motor information (model number) or even a picture so we know what type engine and carburetor you have. But I would assume you have some type of carburetor problem, possibly a couple different problems in the carburetor. One is allowing fuel to flow when the engine is not running and soaking the filter and the other is possibly a clogged jet preventing the engine from running after the fuel in the filter is consumed.
