Question about Garden
Sounds like the blade hit something solid when it was running & then it had problems soon thereafter. It may have sheared the flywheel key & is not firing at about 7 degrees before (TDC) top dead center. Pull out the plug & put your thumb tightly over the spark plug hole to feel for compression as you slowly rotate the blade or pull on the starter cord. About 7 degrees before TDC is when you should get a spark. Maybe you can download a repair manual for it or have a friendly repair shop tell you when it is supposed to fire the plug.You may have to pull off the shroud over the pull cord/flywheel to see where the magnets are at TDC. I had this happen to my Lawn Boy after my grand son used the mower. A $3.00 new key solved the problem BUT it was a pain to take the top covers off. apart
