Mower Cord Has No Tension
My lawn mower cord retracts, but the rectangular piece that the cord housing sits on turns. It has no tension and just spins. Consequently, the engine won't turn over. I believe the rectangular piece to be the flywheel or it is connected to the flywheel. It is in line with the center of the lawn mower blade, which is at the opposite end of the vertical assembly, with the rope at the top.

Your recoil spring is broken. As these can be dangerous item to replace, I recomend that you have it serviced by a qualified mechanic.
