my brother in law had this problem,turns out the float was sticking,Ithink if you take the carb apart and clean it with a quality carb cleaner it will solve your problem,take everything apart in the carb so you don't miss anything.

jrowe06 is 100% correct. Take the bowl of the carb off and spray the float with a good carb cleaner. Move the float up and down with your fingers to make sure it is freed up.
