I recommend not calling for repairs before checking the following:
1. is fuel getting to the carb? You can check this by pulling the fuel hose next to the spark plug. Press the prime button a few times and should start squirting fuel. If there's no fuel, your lines may be frozen or you have an empty tank!
2. is the electric start working? Pull the spark plug cable and hold it with some pliers close to the metal chassis of the thrower. Press the start button, does it spark? If not, try the pull cable. You may need an assistant to verify the spark.
3. is the spark plug working? Same as step 2, but this time remove the spark plug and put it into the spark plug cable. If there's no spark, clean the ends with sandpaper and repeat. If not, then replace the spark plug.
4. Make sure you're on choke and a low motor speed before engaging the electric starter.
