My Weed Eater push mower 20" 300 series won't start. It ran

This answer was rated:

My Weed Eater push mower 20" 300 series won't start. It ran fine for 2 1/2 months. It has oil and gas. I prime 3x, pull cord and it doesn't even attempt to start. What can I do.
Take the air filter off of it and put a little bit of gas down into the opening and then put the filter back on and try to start it. If it starts and then quits then you likely have a bad diapram in the carburetor.
