Kawasaki mower engine

Hey guys, I'm having trouble on one of my customers mowers. Its a 25 horse Kawasaki. The customer said it started losing power then wouldn't start back. I have checked the air filter and replaced the fuel filter. All the fuses and safety switches are operational. The fuel pump gets fuel from the tanks to the carb. The carb is clear. I cleaned it already. I am running out of stuff to check. Thanks for the help.

    Also just a side note. I have just opened shop. I'm good with most the common knowledge stuff but still learning the technical stuff

    Is fuel making it to the cylinders?

    I would assume it is. Carb is clear. If not how do I check it? Also maybe fuel solenoid was a thought

    Try to crank it, plugs should have some fuel on them if fuel is making it into the cylinders.

    What about the solenoid on the bottom of the carb? If it's not operational, would it cause it not to fire

    Yes it will cause fuel to not travel thru main jet. You can usually hear it click when turning it on, retracting plunger.

    I guess for the cylinders, if there is no gas on the plugs, then there is a blockage somewhere

    Update on mower. I am getting fuel to carb but not to cylinders. Clogged jets maybe?

    Float valve may be stuck, check for fuel in carb bowl. Fuel solenoid not working or carb still clogged.
