Sometimes changing the gap between the spark points helps.

Some of the common problems Ive had and noticed:
-Fuel mixture wrong
--Starting fluid is notorious since it doesnt require as much and some brands are very 'liquidy'.
-Spark Gap
--If your screws are not tightly set, youll have a problem with them moving.
--Electrodes gummed up
