If the auger has been out in the cold and hasnt been started bring it in and let it warm up good and check the plug.A lot of times the plug is frosted up enough or wet so it wont fire.Another thing you can try is pull the plug and give it a shot of wd-40 or spray loose and put plug back in and try it.I use wd-40 instead of starting fluid

It's tough to get a carb un-varnished without disassembly. You could try putting in fresh gas and some sea foam. If there's any fuel flow at all, this may eventually clean it out. Otherwise your best bet is to get the bowl off of the carb and remove the jet and clean them both with a good high strength carb cleaner.

Final options pick up carb kit for 15-20.00 and install. If uncomfortable doing this yourself bring to auth dealer.
