Remove the fuel line at the carburetor to see if fuel will run out--it should run in a thin stream, but if it just drips or nothing comes out, then check the fuel filter, fuel line, and any shut-off valve for plugging. If fuel does flow out, the remove the carburetor and clean the interior with spray carburetor cleaner. Remove the float and float needle--check the passage behind for any plugging. Make sure any screw-in jets are not plugged. Make sure the air cleaner and muffler are not plugged. The spark plug should be about 0.025". Hope this helps!
