SOURCE: starting my petrol mower
depending on age of machine set the throttle to maximum revs,and pull the starter cord but newer models have a primer button located on carburettor which is locked just under air filter (black or red colour) push it three times( you should hear it inject fuel) and then pull starter cord,some of these engines have a pre-set throttle ,main concern is that if it has not been used for some time you will need to clean carburettor out,replace diaphragm and remember to use fresh fuel(not older than 90 days) this should cure your problem

Check air filter, check screen in bottom of fuel tank,
New spark plug and also check the spark.
If there is a weak spark, the coil may need to be replaced.
If you have good spark, clean air filter, and clean fuel tank screen, then the carberator will need to be pulled of and cleaned out with solvent

As far as I can tell, there are no downloads available. I eventually gave up and bought a copy from a mower museum. You will need to know the approximate age, as several diferrent engines have been fitted.
If you have the old red engine, the choke lever should be at right angles to the line of the carb IE pointing straight back.
The newer green engines are usually marked, but of not, remove the air filter and look into the carb throat. When the choke flap is CLOSED, the choke is ON IE cold start position.
As soon as the engie starts, move the choke to approx 50%, then fully open after 30 seconds or so.
If in good order, these engines are a 1-pull start. Fit a new plug, then spray WD-40 or similar into the OPEN carb thoat. If there is no sign of life at all, you have a coil failure (or possibly a points problem if it's ancient).
