Remove the air filter and set aside.
Take a can of carburetor cleaner and spray the inside of the carburetor.
Let it set for a moment and then try starting the engine. It should run a few seconds. Repeat. When it starts squirt a small shot of cleaner in the carburetor to keep it running. That should remove the varnish the gas leaves as it evaporates over the winter.
If it still won't keep running then there is trash in the float bowl plugging the needle valve seat and the jets.
1) Turn off the gas or remove the gas line and plug it with a small screw or stick to keep it from leaking out of the gas tank.
2) Look on the bottom of the bowl for a nut .
3) Remove the nut and drop the float bowl.
4) Carefully remove the pin holding the float and needle valve assembly.
5) Take the carburetor cleaner with the straw it comes with and spray every hole in the carburetor to clean the jets . (up through the needle valve seat, down top of the carburetor , see a hole, spray it with the cleaner.)
6) Clean the float bowl.
7) Reassemble and make sure the gas isn't leaking and try to start it again.

Pull several times with choke set full if spark plug is not wet you have carborator issue. If spark plug is wet you probably have a bad connection to spark plug in boot or issue with spark lead. Pull spark plug, replug into lead, lay on head and pull rope to see if you have spark. Do not hold onto plug or you may get shocked.

With out the model # of engine or plug not 100% certian but 99% of those mower engines run a .8 or .9mm plug gap you will be preety safe setting it at that
