You will need to pull the top cover off the mower and follow the spark plug wire to the coil. when you pull the rope it turns a circlular drum that when it rotates near the coil will create a spark. you need to take some sand paper and clean the drum and the coil. there is probably some rust or film causing no spark.
hope this helps.

SOURCE: how to prime a rover i5500 engine lawn mower

Fuel Starvation - Float Bowl Carburetor
1) remove air filter assembly
*be cautious of tearing the mounting gasket. If it does tear, you HAVE to replace it. It is part of the priming system
2) remove the float bowl fastener. This is the main jet
3) carefully remove the float bowl, the rubber o-ring/gasket will not be able to be used if it is removed, you WILL have to replace it
4) using a spray 'carb cleaner'
spray up thru the center of the carburetor
spray and clean the main jet with cleaner and 'tag' wire
(tag wire is very thin, and can be used to clean the hole in the center of the main jet)
5) clean any debris from inside the bowl or carb body
6) re-install bowl and center bolt, air filter assembly

*if you need gaskets, your Briggs dealer can supply. The kit is cheaper than individual gaskets, and all the parts needed to finish the above repair are in the kit.

SOURCE: replaced blades duel deck high

Try leveling your deck beacuse it sounds like the right hand side of the deck is too high causing the high spots. move the mower to a flat surface, drop the deck to its lowest point and measure the deck height with a tape measure.

Spark and gas??? Must have both. Pull spark plug wire and check for spark. If you have spark, check gap on spark plug. Check the bowl on carburetor. loosen bowl screw to see if gas is coming out. If you have gas coming out, carb needs to be taken off and cleaned or rebuilt.

Engine will not start, no spark


Try taking of the engine shroud and cleaning the magnets on the fly wheel. Also clean the two little prongs that are really close to the fly wheel. Use fine sand paper or emery cloth. Then check the spark plug wire for rust (clean if any). Try replacing the spark plug if it is old.

Let me know if this helps.

My lawn mower doesn't start and when it does, smoke comes out of exhaust


you may need to change the oil and/or empty the old gas and replace it with new.

This thing happens when you don't take care of your lawn mower for too long.
