Pull carbs and thoroughly clean them. Be certain all jets are cleaned or replace with new. Float possibly stuck, needle & seat, etc. but need to go through them entirely. I do not agree with Sx on the use of heet to solve this. Fuel degrades at an extremely fast rate and if using anything with ethanol it's much worse. Fuel sitting in floatbowls for as little as 1-2 months will turn green and form "varnish". Been through it too many times over the last 40+ years.
