Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! When did it last run? It sounds like the fuel is not getting to the cylinder in the required amount. Do you have good fuel flow to the carburetor? If you do, remove the float bowl and check the float and needle valve. The needle valve may be sticking or the needle seat may be swollen from ethanol. Or the float may be sticking.
