I think some of the extra cranking is normal on these machines, at least if they sit for any period of time. Sometimes it takes time for the vacuum fuel pump to get fuel up to the carburetor since the vacuum is created off the compressions of the motor. Mine will usually start somewhat quickly if I've been running througout the day. But other times it will take a few cranks if it ever sits for days.
