First spray a prime down the throat of the carb with the choke in the run position and attempt to start. If the motor hits and runs for a second then its a fuel related issue and you will need to remove and clean the carb. If it wont run or try to run on a prime then it may be an ignition issue. check for spark. If no spark then remove the ground wire from the module and check for spark again. If still no spark suspect the module, if spark with ground wire removed then wiring or switch is the culprit.
And make sure you dont over look little things like... does it have a fuel shut off valve and is it open? Is there a safety key and is it in -place? etc.

Running only on the prime is caused by the main jet in the carburetor being blocked. This can happen if you put dirty or old fuel in it or let it sit for a long time with fuel in it. Today's ethanolated gas goes bad quickly and absorbs tons of moisture which causes water to settle to bottom of the fuel tank, which in turn prevents the main jet from lifting fuel, it picks up water instead, thus causing it to die. So, check the tank for water, drain. Check the gas can, and get rid of the old stuff. If debris in either of them, you may have to take carb apart to clean the main jet.
