I am guessing you mean the float is sticking and leaking gas? If so, remove the carb and have it sonic cleaned. The jet that the float opens and closes and should be inspected for wear. In some instances, the float should be weighed for fuel saturation. That may prevent proper floatation in order to fully close the fuel flow once the bowl is full allowing the fuel to continue flowing.

If you are certain the spark plug(s) is in good condition and correctly gapped, and the magneto is working normally, then you may have a fuel system problem. A quick diagnosis of fuel system issues is to spray a shot of starter fluid or WD-40 into the intake through the throttle body. If the engine fires for a bit then quits, it's a fuel system issue. Small engines do not do well with old ethanol-containing fuel. If it's turned yellow, drain it out and replace it, and remove any in the carburetor float bowl also.

Air leaks in the carburetor or intake manifold gasket may also cause hard starting. A sticky carburetor float or float valve is another possibility, especially if the engine was sitting for a long time with ethanol fuel drying out in the float bowl. A dirty air filter will also cause starting issues.

Sounds like one of the wires on the loom might have come undone, just run through the loom, especially all the wires to the ignition.If that fails, looking at the model, could potentially be a CDI failure. Good luck
