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.

The re-coil spring is most likely broken in the housing.
Part Number is: MTD 791-613102
Parts diagram is here:
Image of broken part is here:
Remove items 31, 34 and 40 of the first link to access the recoil. The spring has to be pre-wound during installation. I.e insert spring.. insert pulley.. wind spring mount pulley.
