Mitox won't start

I have a Mitox Brushcutter 3600 UX that won't start I have cleaned air filter in petrol and dried it before replacing, replaced the spark plug, cleaned the fuel filter and fuel goes to the bowl with no problems, stripped the carb down cleaned with carb cleaner spray, replaced diaphragm and gakets with new but still will not fire up I have had it for about 3 years and always starts after as full pulls it has been brilliant up till now anyone got any ideas?

    Could be electrical - are you getting a spark?  The easy way to tell is to use a spark plug tester - google that and you'll see them on ebay for about 2 quid.  If no spark, it might be a faulty ignition switch or HT lead/cap.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
