I'm not usually a Lawn Mower Expert, but I think I may have an answer for you. Assuming your craftsman rotary lawn mower is similar to this self propelled craftsman mower (they should have the same basic parts), this video should help!

The lawnmower won t start after pulling the start up cord . changed the spark plug it still won t start

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.

You will have check the carburettor. If you cleaned the air filter, the right under it. Or if you follow the fuel pipe from the fuel tank it will run straight to the carb. Remove the round bowl at the base, it is held on with a small screw at the bottom. Clean this out and blow out the carb. with air. You may have to remove the whole carb. to clean it right. Good luck, Stephen.
