Expert:  Larry Welch replied 2 years ago.
I beleive that there is sediment in the bowl and has either fouled the needle valve and/or taken out the fuel shut off valve. Please rate.

How long has it been sitting since it ran last? Do you use fuel stabilizer in the gas? It might be the circuit board, but I would eliminate any other causes first. And check the oil is up to full? Some units won't start if the oil level is too low. Get back to me with this information and I can assist you further. R.J.
