Battery charged?,sitting on the seat?, starter or solinoid working? Take out the spark plugs and try turning the engine underneath by using the pulley. Is the oil fresh?

Mtd removing rear wheels from axel

Be very carefull, if you pull the wheels hard enough the half shaft will pop the circlip on the inside of the gearbox and come away with the wheel, this will then require a gearbox strip down, leave it soaking in penetrating oil and try again.

Ok this may be a simple fix. it has a high chance that the fly wheel key has sheared, this will cuse the timing to advance and bite your hand with the rope.
remove the pull starter and the cup ontop of the fly wheel, if you look straight down at the fly wheel nut you can see a cut out in the crank and fly wheel they should be aligned up if not it has sheared. use a lever under the fly wheel and put some pressure on to to lever it up then hit the fly wheel oposite side of the lever AWAY from the the magnet. and the fly wheel should pop up. replace the key and of you go..Make sure you use the OEM brigbs and strat key it is made out of alloy. The cause of this is the blade hitting a kerb or somthing hard,

Snapper rear engine riding mower won't turn over.

First take off the engine shroud and clean the magnets on the fly wheel. Also the two little prongs that are really close to the fly wheel. I use fine sand paper or emery cloth.
Second take the sediment bowl off of the carb and use carb and choke cleaner to clean out any varnish that has formed. If the bolt that holds the bowl on has a little weep hole clean it also. You can spray entire carb and any little ports in it and use an old tooth brush to give it a good cleaning. Reinstall the bowl and then try starting it.

Good luck and let me know if this helps.
thanks roundo4

Engine will not start, no spark

Try taking of the engine shroud and cleaning the magnets on the fly wheel. Also clean the two little prongs that are really close to the fly wheel. Use fine sand paper or emery cloth. Then check the spark plug wire for rust (clean if any). Try replacing the spark plug if it is old.

Let me know if this helps.
