Chances are you have an internal blockage in the carby and the diaphrams may be hard as well.

SOURCE: I have a Cub Cadet cc4125 string trimmer not starting

need a little more information .. but look for the following .. take out the spark plug and look inside with a flashlight ... if the piston is moving with the rotation of the flywheel then you likely have a blown head gasket .. if there is no compression there wont be a load on the pull cord .. a cracked or damaged piston can also do this .. ... if the piston is not moving when you rotate the flywheel then you likely have a bad "shear key" sometimes called a "shear pin" .. thats usually a half moon shaped small metal part that keeps the flywheel locked rotationally to the crankshaft .. it is designed to shear off if there is an excessive sudden load on the engine .. the flywheel will then spin without turning the crankshaft .. the same thing will happen if you have broken the connecting rod .. (a rod failure is often preceded by lots of clatter from the engine) .. the head gasket or shear key are much more likely to be your problem .. if you cant see in the spark plug hole you might try using a straw to feel the piston motion .. its possible that without the spark plug in place the piston might move even with a bad shear pin .. because with no compression the piston will move freely .. if thats the case you can stop the piston motion with a wood dowell thru the spark plug hole .. if it moves in spite of your dowell resistance then consider the head gasket option ..

If the head is shot, go to Home Depot and in the garden center, you will find many replacement type heads. They may have one that will fit your machine, because they carry universal replacement string heads. Check them out because they are cheaper than the small engine repair shop.

SOURCE: I have a cub cadet

The carburator is plugged.
1st check your gas can and make sure the gas is not contaminated... no rust no dirt etc as it doesn't take much to plug those little carbs.
Go to a home center store and purchase a can of small carburator spray cleaner
Remove and disassemble the carb and soak the parts in CLEAN gas for about 15 minutes agitating every 5 minutes or so.
Using the spray nozzle blow out all the ports and then reassemble the carb.

2 other alternatives
1) Take it for service ( they'll probably replace the carb)
2) replace the carb yourself
You didn't include a model so I cannot provde part numbers
