I had the exact same problem. There a few things you need to do first.
1) Make sure the fuel line knob is turned to the Open position; this knob is located under the gas tank.
2) Turn the power switch to on : it is a little red switch located near the pull-handle on the front of the generator. It needs to be on 'I' not on 'O'
3) Turn the choke lever on: it is a little steel lever with an arrow at the tip. Move the lever in the direction the arrow is pointing.
4) Make sure you have gas left in the tank: it may have evaporated or gummed up if you did mix in a fuel stabilizer before putting it away for storage.
If none of these things work , then you carburator may be full of water and gas lines gummed up.
These Gens need to be started up at least once a month to make sure they keep working properly.

replace the pink plastic jet and two O-rings (center of carb) and clean out the shaft they are in with Q-tip and solvent, blow out with compressed air prior to assembly, make sure a old O-ring is not down in the hole as this is a very common mistake made by many who make repairs, one O-ring will remain in the shaft after you pull the jet out. 4 out of 6 gens that surge have this problem especially if you hear a small amount of backfiring . the bottom jet must be very clean as well if it is the newer model without the thumb screw.
