Snow thrower won't start

Sears Craftsmen snow thrower w/Tecumseh engine. One year old. Started without any problems when purchased. Started twice this year but stalled both times. Won't start at all now. I left the gas in it last year, but put fresh fuel and a new spark plug in it this year when it refused to start. However, it still won't start. What can I do to make it start?

If you left gas in it the carb needs to be removed, taken apart, check the float for gas in it, soaked in carb cleaner, inspected for bad parts, blown out with compressed air, reassembled and put back on the machine.
