Take the unit outdoors. BE SAFE!
Remove the spark plug and pull the rope SLOWLY to expell any excess fuel from a possible flooded condition.

If no fuel, leave the spark plug out and check for bent blade and/or crankshaft. If bent, it is likely the flywheel key is sheared and ignition timing has been affected. If you feel the need for a manual to perform this task then perhaps this is a job for a qualified repair shop.
No offense intended what-so-ever!

If crankshaft is bent, ALL engine manufacturers recommend replacement by an Authorized Service Center.

Hope this helps.

New lawn boy mower pull cord will not pull. Worked first 2x


Did you check the oil before you ran it. They usually come dry and you have to but oil in before running. Sounds like motor might be blown.
