Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Carburetor has electric solenoid in the bowl area, this solenoid has to open the main jet in the carburetor as soon as the key is turned on, it has to have battery voltage at all times the key is on. I suspect this solenoid is not opening the main jet! It should click open when you turn on the key, no click, no fuel.
