Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !!Remove the spark from the trimmer and with the plug grounded to the metal of the engine, pull and look for spark. If no spark, check the kill switch, it may be grounding out the spark from dirt or debris. If it has spark, put a small amount of fuel direct into the cylinder, re-install the spark plug and see if it will start.
