Hold the start button down for at least 15 seconds...it's not fuel injected and when it sits after running, heat builds up and vaporizes fuel in the float bowls creating a small vapor lock. Just keep it cranking and it'll fire. Do not ever give it throttle.
You can also remove the O ring on the main jet holder to help as well.
Since I went to pods 8 years ago, I've never had an issue either.
It could also be time to do a complete tune up and carb synch......
