Model number? Rider or push mower? If you remove the spark plug, and ground it, do you have spark? If it has spark, put a teaspoon of fuel direct into the spark plug hole, re-install the spark plug and see if it will start for a few seconds. If it does, try draining the carburetor.

Never mind. I went up to Ace Hardware to get a new spark plug. They let me borrow a wrench, but couldn't get it out. But, then perhaps by futzing with the plug the mower ended up starting so I am good to go.

Thanks! Please reverse the $13 (I thought it was only supposed to be $5). I just got a Fraud Alert Notification from my bank on your firm.
