Do you have petrol in it ?? or have you left the choke on ? check ALL the simple things 1st

As above, also check you haven't inadvertently hit the kill switch on the right next to the throttle.

Good point about the fuel tap, and if it is on try turning it off and to reserve just in case it's got some crud in it.
Do the electrics work? Light horn etc even if the engine won't start?
