Trouble With Briggs and Stratton Lawn Mower

My Briggs and Stratton Weedeater push mower is not starting. It seems to not get any spark and I have a new spark plug, new gas, and oil.
Please help. My lawn is growing wild.

Sounds like problems with the fly wheel, you would have to pull the fly wheel off and put a new key on it. If you do some searches online you can find the instructions on how to do this.
(assuming you are the same person who hit something with the mower, or ran something over), even if you aren't the same person, it does sound like the fly wheel. Hope this helps. (05/04/2010)

Check the key on the flywheel, if it's rotating freely and shaft does not move the key is broken. If it is still good then the gap between the magneto and the flywheel gap is off. Or it it is covered in rust, just clean with a wire brush, rest gap and key and your good to go. If still no spark the magneto might be bad. (06/16/2010)
