Question about Garden
The mower has gas, and the battery is charged, and the motor turns over when the key is turned, but there's no spark so the engine won't start.

Check all the wiring connections on the starting system. Start at the battery. Both posts. Then, check where the ground goes to the body of the tractor. Make sure it's not rusty and making a good connection. Check the wire from the battery to the solenoid. If worse comes to worse, you can take a jumper cable and go from the battery + side and jump right to the starter post where an electrical cable connects. This will let the engine turn over, but make sure you have the mower in neutral and brakes set, with blades OFF!

no,,just turn the key to start her up!,,,if the engine is free to turn i gess it has a stuck starter relay or a jamed starter, or a dirty power/earth lead or joint some were
but check that this battery you charged up is any good first if the battery has been left standing in a discharged state it wont be any good any more,,try a set of "jump leads" from a good car battery!

SOURCE: my toro mower won't start.
The Toros have a Tecumseh engine and are famous for this. I'd suggest you do a thorough cleaning of the carburetor, but there is a little known secret that I've learned about this particular carb. Pull the bolt from the bottom of the float bowl on the carb (1/2 inch wrench; the "main jet"). Be sure that all the little holes in that jet are clean and you can stick a wire thru them. There is a microscopic hole at the very top of the threads on that brass bolt that often gets clogged and your mower will not start. I use the wire from the needle valve inside the carburetor to stick thru it, as it's about the only thing that'll fit. (note: if you have 50 year old eyes like me, you can't even see this hole w/out specs). Hope this helps and best of luck to you. (also, be sure you put the float bowl back on the right way; there's a bevel in the back that needs to go toward the hinge in the float or the float won't work. Learned that one the hard way as well. )

You need to check that there is a 12volt supply from the low tention wire at the solinoid when the key is turned, if there is not either the switch is bad, or the wire from the switch is bad, or the fuse has blown.

Black carbon fouling on the plug is a sign of the engine running too rich, start by replacing the air filter and plug and try again.
