First pull your spark plug out reconnect to the plug wire and ground tot he engine body
Pull the starter cord and see if you have a good clean spark that goes to the electrode and not to the side of the spark plug.
If no spark check your off/on switch

SOURCE: I put new spark plug
Your mower has to have these things all working in unison to start 1. Compression (the engine has to be in good shape) 2. Clean Air (Check Air Filter) 3. Clean,fresh constant fuel supply (Maybe remove bowl of carburetor and clean/check for debris and/or water). 4.Strong Spark (Remove Plug and ground the body against the engine. Pull starter and check for nice, blue spark.
Sometimes, the problem is as simple as the brass bolt that holds the bowl on the bottom of the carburetor is clogged and needs cleaning. That's because this dual purpose bolt is ALSO the main jet. So if you remove it to clean the float bowl, clean the bolt as well. Use no metal objects on it at all. There are small holes in bottom and along the sides that get gummed up when fuel dries.
Carb/Choke areosol spray cleaner will clean the bolt. Remember, don't scrape it up.
Check all these things. To maybe "coax" the engine to run, remove the spark plug and spray a couple of shots of carb cleaner into the engine. Immediately choke it and pull start.
Some OHV lawn mowers are difficult to start because the overhead valves need adjusting periodically. The Briggs and Stratton website have instructions and specifications for doing this. It is not real complicated and allows for easier starting and much better running. Post back if needed.
