1 Year Old Trimmer not starting

I have a Homelite Trimmer that I got last year NEW and for some reason this year it's not starting. I put a new spark plug in it, cleaned it up and still nothing. It pulls fine and strong, just will NOT turn over.
I pulled out the airfilter for the carb, cleaned it and still nothing. The only time I get it to turn over (and only for 3 sec.) is when I spray starter fluid in the carb.

I don't want to throw it away... it's still NEW... what can I do?

Model UT20004B
