It seems you do not have enough spring tension. Remove the starter housing and grab the slack rope and wind the pulley two or three times in the tension direction until the slack gets pulled into the pulley by the spring. Hope this helps. Donnyb60

If you stored it with fuel in it, the piston and cylinder may be stuck together. The old fuel turns to a gummy varnish. spray some WD-40 in to the cylinder through the spark plug hole and rock the flywheel back and forth to break it loose. Then flush the fuel system and carburetor. If that isn't the problem, remove the muffler and inspect the piston, rings, and cylinder for vertical scoring, if scoring is present a top end rebuild may be necessary.

My son just bought a new Toro self propelled 22" recycler and has had problems on two different occasions. The mower just bogs down to a stop and when he tried to pull the starter cord, it was very VERY difficult to pull. At first I thought the engine had seized up for some reason (no oil?), but we found the problem.
First, disconnect the spark plug wire from the spark plug (to avoid the engine starting); tip the mower on its side and check very carefully the pulley and transmission belt. In his case, a piece of wood had gotten stuck between the belt and the pulley. Removing it fixed the problem (now he mows a little higher so as not to get so close to any debris). (We did have one further problem after that - the engine would not start - not even fire. After pulling and pulling, checking for gas, and checking that the air filter was cleean, we decided to check if the cylinder was flooded - we removed the spark plug, wiped and dried if off, and replaced it. It started right away.)
This belt 'n pulley arrangement isn't the best idea, if you ask me.
