Craftsman mower Model 917.370670, will not start

Had mower since April. Has always started on first or second pull. This weekend the mower would not start at all. Checked fuel, plenty. Checked spark, plenty. Removed air cleaner and squirted fuel into intake. Motor started and ran for about 3 seconds and died. Removed carb fuel bowl and fuel flows properly. Removed carb and checked all ports for clogs "none"... Reassembled, same issue, will not run.

I know that it can be difficult to have your equipment stop working properly, especially when you need to use it. While you are waiting for your expert answer, I have found a link that will provide some information on the issue. Since the mower started with fuel being add to the intake, it is most likely that the carburetor needs to be cleaned. I hope this helps.
