Have you checked to see if the float has a hole in it allowing fuel to weight it down? Possibly the needle valve is sticking and not the float. Could also be the float needs adjusting. You need to open the carburetor up and see what is going on.

Why can't you hear a sound when you wave your hand back and forth?

Because you can't wave it fast enough. You'd hear a sound if you could do at least 30 or 40 complete back-and-forth waves every second, and keep that up for a few seconds. That's exactly what's going on when you hear the buzz of a fly, or the whine of a mosquito. They don't wave as hard as your hand does, but they wave a lot faster. If you wave it close to your ear you can hear the sound.
