Sounds like you have a Fuel Blockage, or a Carburettor problem. Check your Fuel supply, to carb, then check that the "Jets" are clean, and float bowl is OK.
First, check if you have gas. We've all made this mistake, and we've all kicked ourselves later.
Next, pull the air cleaner off. Inspect it to see if it's clogged with dirt, and if so, try starting the engine with it off.
If you're still hunting, grab a can of starting fluid and give the carb a squirt. This is a highly combustible material that gives the engine a short shot of fuel, even if the carb is plugged up and not delivering gas.
When the engine starts with the starting fluid, but dies quickly you'll know that you've got a fuel delivery problem, or a fuel/air mix problem.
Carb ProblemsFor delivery problems, pull the carb off and disassemble, looking for problems and clearing all passages. Most often the problem is just "gunk", but their could be a diaphragm problem, seal problem, etc. Check with a dealer or good book for your carb if you clean it and still have problems.
For the fuel/air mix, pull the needle valve screw out and inspect. Careful not to wrench these down, be gentle. B&S usually call for 1.5 turns out from the seated position.
Use good gaskets on the carb to tank and carb to block connections, otherwise a vacuum leak could be getting you.
