Difficult one, normally they have carburettor problems.

The first thing I do is clean the air filter with clean petrol.

The machine looks quite old, so give it a good clean.

If it doesn't start after cleaning or replacing air filter you can buy a kit to renonovatev the carburettor on Amazon.

There is a good video on utube on how to rebuild the carburettor.
