Good fix, mrfixit-jerr! Also, if you remove the rear cover (4 screws) you can stabilize the crankshaft by inserting a screwdriver between the lobe of the shaft and the counterweight.

I have had this exact same problem with the same model after just one hours use.
Returned it a week later and after 2 months the replacement did the same thing.
Returned that one and got a third. A week later that ones doing the same thing again after only an hour or so use.
Obviously some defect in them.
I'll be getting my money back and visiting the local mower center to get their help rather than doing the guess work my self and ending up with a dodgy model

remove the starter housing, usually only 3 or 4 bolts or screws. on the inside should be a large white or black wheel, hold the outer case with one hand and rotate the wheel counter-clockwise with the other as many times as can without force. on the inside of the wheel should be a small hole, rotate the wheel to line it up with rope guide hole on the outer case/housing. use a nail or small screwdriver to help hold in place. feed the start rope through the 2 holes and tie a knot at the end, single or double depending on the size of the hole. if the end of the rope is frayed, use lighter to melt and twist to a point to make it easier to handle. when reassembling you may need to jiggle the handle for realignment. it works on an inner spring coil tensioner system, so if the cable has no tension when rotated or doesn't recoil back, the starter assembly will need to be replaced.

I had the same problem. I opened up the blower by removing all the Allen screws, 4 mm wrench.
Then pull the motor, need a Torx T-25wrench. You then need to wind up the recoil which is part of the case on the motor side. Wind it up all the way and then put a screw in the slot that is in the recoil.
Thread the cord through the tube through the triangular hole in the white disc. Type a big not that won't slip through the hole. Pull the screw that is holding against the spring.
Remount the motor, wiggling it until it slips into place. Make sure it ratchets.
Reassemble and you shold be good to go. Only took me 3 attempts to get it right.
