Question about Garden
Was running and a root was hit and mower will not start. It ran for a while and vibrated bad. But now it won't run at all.
If this is a push type mower, most likely is has sheared the flywheel key and bent the bent blade caused the vibration. The blade will need replaced and likely the flywheel key.

Sounds like a bent shaft, or bent blade.
Also sounds like the part that holds the blade to the shaft is sheared, and allowing the motor to run faster than it would if it is turning the blade properly.
Hope this helped,
Please rate me

Testimonial: "Your response was very helpful. Is there a repair manual or instructions online that I could get to describe the process to repair the mower? Again thanks for your response. "

If you are sure the oil level is correct then it sounds like it's about to die, unfortunately. A pine cone shouldn't cause any damage, but a large branch may do so. Was it smoking before you shut it down? The vibration could be caused from a bent blade. It could also be caused from a part breaking in the motor. I wish I could have given you better news!

Try taking the float bowl off and clean out the orfus. It will eather be in the nut holding the bowl on or in the end (sides) of the pickup tub the nut scews on.
