Logic would dictate that the starter motor is burning out, drawing far too much current, and that the current overheated the solenoid and toasted it. Now the starter is almost a short circuit and while it spins it has no power. A spendy part to be sure. Perhaps you can find a used one from your friendly neighborhood repair guy.
A compression release is found on old diesel's, but not on gas engines.
Starters can fail from cranking on them for extended periods. They are designed to handle short periods of use, maybe 20 seconds on followed by several minutes (like 15) off. If you have had starting problems and kept cranking to get it going that would explain the fried starter.

SOURCE: Can't get the sparkplugs to
The starting solinoid would not pull in if the safety switches were failed open. So starter would not turn. Did you replace the spark plug or test on another machine to verify spark? If so, when you replaced the coil were you careful to get the proper spacing from the flywheel. I have heard that you can use a business card to act as a feeler guage to set the coil distance from the flywheel. Too large of a distance will ensure that there is no spark.
If really helpful, please rate.
