Question about Garden
Remove the impeller and check for loose motor mount screws. With the impeller off and the spark plug removed and the pull start functioning properly; if it still wont pull then its likely internal and due to be replaced.

Sounds like it has seized up. If the pull cord won't pull then the motor is locked up. Did you run gas/oil mix for the fuel its a 2 cycle motor...

SOURCE: pull cord came undone
sounds like the spring might have broken. Sometimes they are a pain to rewind. Might want to see about a new pull assembly. But first take off the shroud to see if the little pieces of metal or plastic that engages the assembly on top of the fly wheel are ok. If so untie the cord to the hand hold and remove rope from the pulley inside. Then turn the pulley a couple of times and let it go(but watch your fingers). If it spins pretty fast then turn it again till you get some tension and I put a screwdriver through the fins so it doesn't unwind (but line up the hole where the line goes through first) then put the line through the holes and tie a knot. Then pull out the screwdriver and slowly let the line rewind. If it rewinds reassemble and it should work fine for you.
Let me know if this helped.

My $350 Echo PB-500T seized up. I almost cried.
The solution was to drain the fuel tank.
Refill fuel tank with an 2-cycle Oli/gas mixture.
40:1 =3.2 oz to one-gallon gas, do not use Alcohol base gas.
Remove the spark plug.
Pour approximate 1/8 oz 2-cycle Oli into the spark plug hole.
Remove the pull cord assembly (4-bolts)
This reviled the crank shaft-Pull cord bracket
I use a large monkey wrench to turn the shaft (CW) Clock-wise.
Complete approximate 20 revolutions.
Reassemble, but don't install the spark plug yet.
Complete approximate 20 more revolutions
by pulling the pull cord.
Use q-tips to swab the top of the piston, as much as possible.
Install the spark-plug and crank, it will smoke for amount 7-10 minutes
