Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Will engine fire on starting fluid? If not, do a spark test to see if there is spark at the plugs. If there is spark , it should fire on starting fluid. That would make it a fuel problem. Check the obvious, is there fuel in the tank, Is the connection secure at the tank , and is there fuel getting to the regulator, test by loosening the fuel line.
