Question about Craftsman Garden
In order to start and run an engine needs compression, timing, the correct quantity of fuel and a good spark. An engine that doesn't start has one or more of those requirements missing.
The fact it runs for a second with the ether spray indicates it has spark, compression and timing, though it must be remembered ether is more volatile than petrol so if the spark or compression is weak, ether might work but petrol might not.
The main indication from your description is fuel is not reaching the combustion chamber or the wrong quantity or perhaps the fuel isn't fresh. Revisit the basic requirements and if nothing is discovered, strip and clean the carb.
