ya float is stuck down, bounce the ped a bit maybe restores the closed position.

I would adjust your float level

Check an make sure the float is operating the needle valve. Take it out and see if there is a bit of gunk preventing it from closing. You can test it with the bowl off and fuel going to the valve. it should stop the fuel if you hold it up.

Don't try this indoors or while playing with fire, too.
