Engines need 4 things: Spark, compression, fuel, exhaust
1) Does spark plug have spark?
Take out plug, put plug wire back on plug, hold plug threads against metal part of engine, pull cord, do you see spark between plug and engine?
2) While spark plug is out, put finger over hole and pull cord. Do you feel suction that shows compression?
3) What about the exhaust port? Is the screen blocked with carbon deposits and dirt? Soak it in WD-40.
4) Do you have 2-cycle oil in gasoline? Do you have fresh gas? Did you leave gasoline in tank for several months? Is the carburetor clogged with gum?
5) What about the air filter? Does it fire up without air filter? Will it fire if you spray WD-40 into carburetor? Can you keep it going while spraying WD-40 into carburetor?
If it fires with WD-40 but won't keep going on it's own, then the gas is not getting to carburetor or carburetor is clogged with gum.

I have the same model purchased last spring from Home Depot. I finally learned to prime it 6 times instead of 3 like it says on the mower. After pushing the primer 6 times mine starts fine. It usually requires priming even when the engine is warm to get it to re-start unlike any mower I have had in the past.

Hunting is caused by a lean fuel condition in most engines, this can be intake leaks or a carb or fuel injection problem. We have little or no info on any Chinese products like this, they are sold and after that they don't real care..
