Rhino won't start!!!!

Well I was driving the rhino the other day and I pulled it into the garage where it was warm. Its about -20* Celcius up here and it fired up outside alright. The next day I went to start it and it would just turn over so I changed my fuel filter and spark plug and still would not start. I was looking at the fuel filter when I was starting it and I noticed that the filter was not even getting any fuel. So I check the hose that goes into the fuel tank and i was clear also. So my problem is that I am not getting fuel to the carb. What do you guys think. Could it have something to do with the fuel pump (STOCK) or maybe the carb. By the way it is an 07 660. Thanks

I had the same issues with the stock fuel pump, replaced it with an electric pump and have never had issues again.

Verve, You said it JUST turned over, maybe look at charging up the Battery, Low voltage condition?, what weight is the oil you are running in the engine, you said its -20c, if you have the 15-40 in there it will be like Liver in the crank case. Just my 2$

put some gas in the carb bowl and fire it, it takes a while to prime with stock pump and new filter

How would I know if the stock pump was screwed, should a guy just take it apart and look or is that a bad idea. I have changed many fuel filters and this has never happened. The last thing I did was start it out side in the cold and it fired up (Very little fuel in tank) and the throttle stuck wide open so had to keep starting and killing the motor to inch it into my warm garage where it could thaw out. Maybe this was the reason I dont know, I put fuel in the carb bowl and it fired up then died again so I dont know. This machine has given me very few problems I just dont know. Is it possible that something got stuck in the carb, like dirt or debris of some sort.

Put your hand over the front of the carb while cranking, this will cause a vacuum and make the pump prime faster. It should not take long to see gas in the filter, or your hand covered in gas.
