SOURCE: Toro, 21" inch push mower

If the engine compression is too low, it will have problems starting or not start at all, and these seem to be the symptoms you are describing. An easy test is to pour some oil into the cylinder and see if that increases the compression. If this makes a difference, you will need to replace the piston rings and at least hone the cylinder, depending on the wear in the cylinder bore.
You can also try spraying some easy start into the intake and seeing if that makes the machine run for just a short spurt. If it does, you could have a problem with the carb not supplying fuel due to something like a blocked jet or irt in passages etc.

Some have a circuit breaker that cuts out when too much current used when trying to start too much. Usually when it cools, will kick back in. Have you tried disconnecting battery temporarily, if just letting it sit doesn't do it? PS. Sometimes a little shot of WD-40 into carburetor will help start it if it's been sitting quite a while.

SOURCE: Have a Toro LX 465 lawn tractor, won't start;

Could be your coil. Might be bad or it went out of gap. Gap is .10

SOURCE: I have a Toro Model

check your mower for interlock switches that might interupt spark for safety reasons.

A chute switch or something like that. Check your owners manual for troubleshooting.

Unplug the keyswitch and try pull starting to rule out a bad switch.

If it still doesnt have spark you might need a new coil.

The coil is right under the recoil cover and are fairly cheap.

A set of hand tools and $30-50 for the part should do it.

Good luck and be careful.

First disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug. Then use a socket wrench to remove the spark plug. Install the new spark plug into the cylinder head and reconnect the spark plug wire. The Toro CCR 3650 uses a NGK BPMR4A plug gapped to 0.032".

Check the fuel line to the tank, and see if another one is inside, maybe it fell off, or it's filter is clogged.
