Every petrol lawn mower owner will experience this issue at some point: The starter cord won`t pull or is very hard to pull. This problem is usually caused by the engagement of the engine flywheel brake. Check to see if the flywheel brake is pressing against the handle before pulling the rope again.
Electric start (also known as key start or push button start) is a lawnmower feature found on petrol lawnmowers, which allows you to start the engine at the push of a button or the turn of a key instead of pulling a recoil starter rope.

MAKE TAKE ANOTHER SET OF HANDS OR A WEDGE TO STOP RETRACTING OF SPRING. PULL ROPE THROUGH AND TIE A DOUBLE KNOT AT END SO IT WONT PULL THROUGH.

Try removing the spark
plug and squirting some carb cleaner or starting fluid in the
cylinder. Pull the starter cord several times for the piston to drive
out the oil. Clean the plug and replace it. Try to start as normal.

Is there an easy way to put the pull cord spring back on?
No, you have to connect it at the inner point, then wind the spring around keeping it fairly tight all the time. You will eventually be able to reconnect at the outer point on the spool. Usually, it’s best to remove the starter cord from the spool until the spring can be attached. Wedge the spool so that it can’t unwind the spring and refit the cord (make sure it is in good condition). Usually best to remove the handle to facilitate the stringing process. Make sure there is enough slack in the spring so that it can be tightened at least 4 turns more (when pulling the starter). Melt the cord ends a little to prevent the knots from pulling out with use. This is something like setting a bear trap, so use care at all times. Good luck!
