First we need Model number and any other identification you can find before we can help very much. Have a good one. Geo

Ensure you have: Spark (ignition); Compression; And, fuel delivery to the combustion chamber.

Another check is to see if the cylinder is tight to the crankcase. There have been a large number of these units that have come into our shop with the bolts that hold the cylinder to the crankcase either loose or broken. With this condition the fuel is not getting drawn into the unit and eventually into the combustion chamber. You may have to remove some of the engine covers to check this. Good Luck
