If so, are you moving your choke lever to choke position, before attempting to start your engine?

Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

This is only a troubleshooting question. We can continue from here. Thanks!

Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

I do have some suggestions for you, that may help to get your engine started.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
that is the model, yes we moved the choke lever
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

Thanks for your reply. How old is the gas you are using?

That is the correct model and yes the choke lever is in the correct position

Gas one week old
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

I would like for you to try something. Do you have some carburetor cleaner in a can, or starting fluid?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
No
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

No problem. Do you have a spark plug wrench?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
we do
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

The reason I asked, is because we need to prime your carburetor. We can do this by spraying carburetor cleaner directly into your carburetor, or by removing your spark plug, and putting about a teaspoon of gas into your spark plug hole.

Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

Do you have your throttle lever in fast/rabbit position??

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ok my husband will try the spark plug advice..yes the throttle lever is in the fast position
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

Thank you. Let's see if this works.

Spark plug done..still not starting..husband thinking it's not getting gas
Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

If your engine will not start after you put gas into your spark plug hole, then you are likely not getting a spark to your spark plug.

Expert:  Donald replied 1 year ago.

Is your husband familiar with checking for spark to your spark plug?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
he is
