You might need to change the friction wheel. I looked up your model number and the part number for the friction disc is PN# 240394. You might be able to get the part locally from your small engine repair shop.
To replace the disc you will need to drain the oil and place some plastic over the gas tank and put the cap on so no gas will leak out. Then you will have tip the blower forward so it is setting on the augers.
Then remove the bolts on the access cover on underside . Once removed you will have to remove the wheel and see what else you will to remove. It is pretty easy to figure it out. If you have to take out the rod that moves the friction disc from side to side (gear shift rod) MAKE SURE IT IS IN PLACE AND WORKING BEFORE REASSEMBLING. Put in fresh oil and remove plastic. It should be up and running.
Good luck let me know if this helps.

Electronic Ignition was introduced on many engines about that time frame. I would need to have model and type numbers from the engine to fully determine that question. However, have spark is still the issue. If the unit has a switch installed on the operator's console, it should be disconnected at the engine so that any safety switches are not masking or causing a problem that is not engine related.
Let's investigate a few basics first.
a) How have you determined that there is no spark?
b) Have you used a type of spark tester?
c) What is the condition of the plug. Brown or dark brown is OK. Black or silver is NOT Ok.
*If you do not have a spark tester,
a) remove the plug, and with it connected to the wire,
b) find a portion of metal around the cylinder that you can ground it on, and then pull the rope.
c) If the plug is black, you may see spark, but you should replace the plug.
*** PLEASE NOTE ; if there is excess fuel in the cylinder or on spark plug, it can catch fire, so be carefull to cover the hole with a heavy rag so that any fuel cannot be exposed to spark plug durning test !!!!
Get back with me on how this issue works out.

First I would take out the spark plug then try tugging on the rope. If no success take a ratchet and a deep well socket that fits the nut on the flywheel tighten and loosen the nut with out restricting the flywheel does the engine turn over? Does it move then stop after you loosen the nut? If it does then check the oil. If it is low or none in there then the motor froze up and needs replacement. If this was no help check in the shoot for obstructions like a newspaper stuck in the auger or the thrower.
