Troybilt 2100 will not...

Troybilt 2100 will not start. This is the first time i needed it since last year. We have had alot of below zero weather lately. I don't know if that has anything to do with it. Have new gas in it.

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

Where is the shut off valve

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

Yes

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

I am not aware of a shut off valve
