Hi Remove the fan housing with the starter mecanism.Pull the starter and check if it works properly.Try to turn by hand the flyweel.It is normaly to feel dificulty only when the piston comes up in the cilinder.If you feel difficulty all the time there is too much preasure on the cilinder walls(piston rings friction.Easy kick the end of the crankshaft with a hammer until the piston moves easier in the cilinder
please leave a rating.Thanks

Stiff usually means good compression. So, pump the fuel bulb, put your foot on the flat in the handle, lock the throttle open using the button on top, set choke all the way out and pull. It should kick after a few pulls. Then close choke half way, and pull until it starts, then push choke all in. If it doesn't start, disconnect spark plug and take it out. Have someone watch while the sparkplug is held against metal engine to see if there is a good spark at the plug. If not maybe needs new coil. look at plug to see if it is wet, ie, gas is getting to it to isolate problem to carburetor.

sound like hydraulic lock,try leaving the spark plug out and pull it quite a few times with the spark plug hole facing the ground, this should shoot the offending fluid out.
might work ?

The only way to test an ignition module on any small engine is on the machine. Simple and easy.First remove the spark plug , then remove the wire that connects the module to the kill switch, its located right next to the plug wire above the laminations. Put a spark tester in the pkug boot and ground the other end. Pull the rope and look for a spark. Its that simple. If you have a spark, check the switch and wire, if you dont,check the grounding screws that hold the module to the block for a clean contact.If you still have no good spark its time to replace the Ignition module (coil).If you dont have a spark tester, ask someone dumb enough to hold it. If they jump and cuss you out you know you have a good spark
