Either itís flooded, or has no spark or no fuel.

My N15 SSS can be a bugga to start after several cold starts in a row - e.g. back out of the garage, start washing it, then move it so my other half can get her car in, then move it again, finish washing and start it again to put it away.

It runs very rich on a cold start and after a few such starts in a row, the engine tends to flood. Solution (works for me, but might not be technically correct) is to hold the throttle wide open while cranking until it starts firing.

Does the exhaust pipe smell of petrol after you've been trying to start it? If it doesn't, I'd be looking at fuel problems.
