Did... Ran on starter fluid (LOL)...but won't take in fuel. I have a new carburetor to install.
Had the exact same issue with mine which I bought new in 2010. Fired it once last season to make sure it ran, put it away & forgot about it. Oops. After a thorough de-gumming with carburetor cleaner, some fresh fuel & a new spark plug, the beast fired.
