Question about Garden
Did the rope break, or is it hung up? if it broke, you need to take off recoil cover and manually rewind spring until existing rope can be pulled through the cover to compress spring. use the same size of rope and feed new rope through hole with spring about fully wound. If hung up, you need to clean the cover that is on of the crank case top. Do not use oil because it will make the ball bearings seize up. is it a briggs or other? I explained procedures for a briggs.

remove the spark plug and try to pull the rope. Sometimes the coil can get loose and wedge against the flywheel. if that's not the problem then pour a little oile in the spark plug hole, let it set a bit, if it still won't turn over then you have an internal engine problems. Not very common but it can happen

SOURCE: ROPE ON MOWER WON'T PULL OUT
I agree, it sounds like the mower is fouled with foliage at the blade. Pull off the spark plug wire and tilt the mower on its side opposite of the carburetor, check the underside of the mower for impacted grass clippings.

make sure you can turn the blade by hand, make sure grass isn't stopping the blade after that make sure the break cable isn't bad, sometime's the cable don't disengage the break from the flywheel. Hope this works.

There should be 3 -3/8 or 7/16" bolts on the side of mower (where the spark plug is, there should be one) the other two will be just opposit of the two. Remove bolts and housing should be free.You might to remove any cables to free up any slack.
