Sounds like you will need to clean the carburetor or replace your carburetor internal rubber parts like the diaphgram and O rings.
Be sure to use compressed air to blow out all the fuel and air passages.
Be careful when blowing out the passages, because there are sometimes small rubber type seats in the bottom of some of the passages.
Sometimes you can get by with priming the carburetor or using starting fluid and letting it run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
Keep in mind that the float for the carburetor must be level when you go to reassemble the carburetor or follow the instrucitons you get with the carburetor kit.
If the mower/weedeater is over a year old, then I also recommend that you buy and install a new carburetor repair kit,because the diaphragm will get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, you will first need to seat the jet screws.
But before you seat the jet screws count the number of turns it takes to seat the jet screws from their original position.
Be sure to mark the turns down on a piece of paper.
That way when you put the jets back in, you know to seat them first and then turn them back out to their orginal position before you started.

This sounds like the float is sticking in the carb causing it to flood . You need to take the carb off and clean it and put a kit in adjusting the float per the instructions

I have a 25 cc Craftsman weedeater. Using fresh 40:1 gas. I've replaced the fuel lines, cleaned in tank filter, cleaned and rebuilt carb and getting spark, but it still won't start. Also cleaned...


the other possibilities you have is a bad crank seal, or a flywheel came loose and its out of time, will it fire on carb cleaner sprayed in the carb, If it runs for seconds and , then I would say it's not getting fuel, If it only farts once or twice then I would check crank seals cause if they are leaking then your crankcase cannot draw vacumn which in turn causes fuel pump in carb to draw fuel, If you have to check flywheel pull it apart and take flywheel nut off and pull flywheel off and inspect the key that is built into flywheel to see if it is sheared off or messed up, also while checking muffler check for the opening that the mud dobbers havent put mud in muffler pipe, good luck
