Hi and welcome to the site, I’m Louie. Sorry you had to wait awhile but I’ll do my best to help.

Initially, let's review and/or try the basics and determine general area of possible fault. Proposed preliminary tries (if have not been done) when the symptom shows up again:

  • • open the gas cap and attempt to start again;
  • • carefully remove the spark plug;
  • • check the burn color of the ceramic to the tip;
  • • crank and note if fuel enters the combustion chamber;
  • • cautiously perform a spark test.
