Toro 928 won't start

I have a 3 year old 928 and went to start it today for use. First time for this year. Can't get engine to even partially fire although it turns over as expected.

Looking for suggestions.

Where would I spray starting fluid if that's possible on this model?

It had been sitting since last May and has a tank of fresh gas.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

The carburetor will be near the throttle/choke controls, almost certainly hidden behind a shroud. You may be able to spray the starting fluid without removing this shroud, you'll have to look under the shroud, and make sure you can see the carburetor's intake.

You'd turn the choke off, raise the throttle (if it has one), and spray the starting fluid into the carburetor's intake. Turning the choke off opens the passageway so the fluid can get to the engine's intake. Then turn the choke on again, and try starting the engine.

Does the machine had a fuel shutoff valve? It wouldn't be the first time a valve has accidentally been left closed.

If the fuel in it since May did not have stabilizer in it, or some sort of treatment, it may have gone bad and gummed up the carb. But hopefully not, hopefully you can at least get running for now, even if it needed partial choke to run smoothly.
