Troy-Built TR360. Will not start. Has spark, fuel and clear air intake.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have fuel in the tank? If so, is the shut-off valve open and the fuel clean?

Had it just serviced and have used it three times

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

Hope to if I have time

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

Not that I think of....Have pulled the plug several times making sure it was not fouled and each time it was wet at removal.
