    Looks like you've found the problem and solenoid is cheap and easy to replace. Be certain to clean and tighten all connections.

    Since you say plug is dry. Take off air filter and spray some carb cleaner into carb(choke off). If it fires up then you may just need a carb cleaning, also make sure you have good fuel flow to carb.
