Toro CCR Powerlite won’t Stay Running

I've checked everything I can think of and the blower won’t stay running. This is what I've done:

• It has fresh gas
• The gas cap vent is open
• Cleaned the sediment bulb
• Float is not cracked
• The gas line is clear from the fitting on the bottom of the gas tank to the carburetor. I stuck a wire through it.
• Gas is getting to the carburetor but not the sediment bulb.
• I sprayed carburetor cleaner into the air intake area.

When I spray starter fluid on it, it runs for 15-20 seconds until the fluid is used up. Suggestions? Any help would be appreciated.

Is this a newer 4 stroke (87cc I think????) or an older 2 stroke? I'm guessing newer style since you mentioned sediment cup. I haven't seen one to really comment accurately if it's the newer one, and don't know how easy it would be to get to the carb. The old 2 strokes were right at the back and easy to get to . My guess is to try spraying carb cleaner directly up the center stalk of the carb with bowl removed. If it runs with fluid sprayed directly into the carb, fuel is not getting from the bottom of the carb to the top. The emulsion tube is likely plugged from old gas or particles. A straight shot up that tube of carb cleaner may be the ticket to get you going. If not, removal of the carb and real cleaning is likely in order. Your needle and seat may be stuck closed also. Not familiar enough with that carb to comment really. Simple check for flow is to pull the bowl and view the float, it should have dropped down as soon as you removed the bowl and fuel should flow. Lightly press up on the float to level and the fuel should shut off. If the float hangs there, the needle and seat are sticking closed.
