toro personal pace leaks gas

My toro personal pace lawnmower works fine except when I am finished mowing and put it away in the garage. Then it leaks gas. Gas can be seen dripping from the air cleaner cover. When that is removed, gas is seen dripping from the air intake for the carburetor. Anyone know what the problem is?

Worn carb needle and seat. Carb float set too low or sticking. Dirt or debris on needle. Etc.
If it starts and runs OK and you don't want to work on it, just turn off fuel supply a few seconds before shutting off engine.

Start using Seafoam in your mower gas can. In the meanwhile, pick up the carb side of the mower about 6" and let it drop - might shake the float loose.
