Model and make? Did not show.
Is engine turning, just not starting? Manual rope or electric start? If you remove spark plug, is plug wet? With spark plug grounded, do you have spark when cranking?
Electric start or manual? Is the engine turning? Just not starting? Have you removed spark plug?
So engine will turn, but not start? With spark plug removed, put a teaspoon of fuel direct into the spark plug hole, re-install the spark plug and see if it will start for a few seconds. If it does, it has spark, and is not getting gas through the carburetor.
Next would be to check the fuel supply to the carburetor and drain the float bowl.
OK> let me know.
I assume it started and died. Did you see the carburetor link I sent? Need to check that the fuel bowl is getting fuel and the float and needle valve are free to move up and down to regulate the fuel.
Check to be sure the fuel is getting to the carburetor, then check the float bowl.
