try a touch of starting fluid right into the carburator by taking the air filter off. If it then starts but wont run or stay running, the reservoir below the carb should be removed to clean at and the pinhole in the intake tube above the bowl nut. This is the most common problem with lawnmower start problems, the pinhole can be unplugged with one wire from a wire brush. Be careful with the gas, at least pinch off the gas hose with a vise grips while removing the carb bowl.. Never use a droplight around gasoline.

The Flywheel has a brake and switch assembly on that is item 8 of this link: http://www.ereplacementparts.com/mtd-11a54mc006-2009-push-walkbehind-mower-parts-c-20039_20100_133234_21459.html#part_343018
The switch is made or unmade by the position of the user safety bar on the handle. When the cable between the handle and the flywheel safety brake wears or needs adjustment the safety switch continually grounds the ignition so there is no spark. You may have to adjust the user safety bar cable at the engine flywheel brake switch area by losending the mount screw and moving the cable jacket further away from the switch. Then re-tighten the mounting screw.
If this is the first start of the season you may have to remove the carb float bowl as shown on the bottom of item 14 the above link to clean out the jet orifice in the threaded area of the carb. Make sure you remove all debris in the carb float bowl area. You should also have fuel flow anytime the float is positioned below horizontal.
If none of the above corrects the problem respond here and I will help you.
Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Spray starter fluid in the air filter. This should work.
