Winter methanol fuel is problematic for small engine.
Add small amount of methanol will help.
Check the manufacture spec for the gap and re-gap it to the min. gap to get the strongest spark.

It seems you do not have enough spring tension. Remove the starter housing and grab the slack rope and wind the pulley two or three times in the tension direction until the slack gets pulled into the pulley by the spring. Hope this helps. Donnyb60

My son just bought a new Toro self propelled 22" recycler and has had problems on two different occasions. The mower just bogs down to a stop and when he tried to pull the starter cord, it was very VERY difficult to pull. At first I thought the engine had seized up for some reason (no oil?), but we found the problem.
First, disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug (to avoid the engine starting); tip the mower on its side and check very carefully the pulley and transmission belt. In his case, a piece of wood had gotten stuck between the belt and the pulley. Removing it fixed the problem (now he mows a little higher so as not to get so close to any debris). (We did have one further problem after that - the engine would not start - not even fire. After pulling and pulling, checking for gas, and checking that the air filter was cleean, we decided to check if the cylinder was flooded - we removed the spark plug, wiped and dried if off, and replaced it. It started right away.)
This belt 'n pulley arrangement isn't the best idea, if you ask me.

Easiest way is to remove the complete blower housing assembly, remove the old rope, then twist the rope pulley around and around until the spring is tight, ease it back until the hole in the pulley for the rope lines up with the hole in the recoil housing and stick a small screwdriver through the pulley and the housing to hold tension on the spring. Next, take your new rope and feed it first through the recoil housing, then through the hole in the pulley, tie a good solid knot right at the end of the rope and pull it back out until you feel it pulling on the pulley. Now holding tension on the rope, remove the screwdriver and let the spring tension slowly pull the rope back into the the pulley until it is full, pull it back out about a half turn on the pulley and tie a slip knot against the outside of the housing to hold it in place and reassemble everything. Hook the end of your rope through the rope guide on your handle if it has one, slip the handle on and tie a knot to hold it. Cut off the excess, pop out the slip knot and it will pull up tight and you are ready to go

I believe your carburetor needs to be rebuilt or replaced. The carb has thin rubber diaphragms that meter in the fuel to combustion chamber. If the diaphragms get hard (from gas sitting in carburetor for extended time or from hot weather) they won't allow enough fuel in to keep up with the demand. if you need parts email email@example.com.
