My Craftsman Snow blower, model 247.889702 will not start. What can I do to get this started?

I have changed the spark plug and have adjusted to the proper gap

I ran out all of the fuel last spring before storing for the summer

I've followed the trouble shooting guide to get it started to no avail

Craftsman Model # 247.889702 26" Deck Snow blower

I do own a service plan, but I would rather solve on my own. In the past when I've called Sears about an issue with this snow blower, they have said it could be several weeks before they could look at it. It is winter and I don't have that luxury.

I purchased this 1 year ago.

I have purchased some carburetor cleaner, but have not used it due to inexperience with small engines.

I'm somewhat frustrated to be having these problems with such a new machine.

I've tried starting several times and it did fire briefly a few times but wouldn't stay running.

There is fresh fuel in the tank.
