Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Remove the spark plug and see if it is sparking? Is it fouled with black carbon? Sounds like the carburetor is not delivering fuel through it. Remove the carburetor bowl and check for fuel coming through the needle valve and check the float, it may be stuck .
