Stihl ms-250 starting problem

I have a Stihl MS-250 chainsaw. The last time I used (about 5 months ago) it started and ran fine. The first time I tried it this year the rope is extremely hard to pull. I removed the spark plug and the rope pulls fine but when I reinstall the plug it pulls hard again. Any ideas on what the problem is and how I can correct it? Thanks.

I ended up changing the spark plug and it's now starting/working correctly. I didn't get any responses but I thought I'd post my results in case anyone else has this problem in the future.
