Toro Personal Pace recoil cord won`t pull

My 3 year old Toro 22" Personal Pace just decided not to start!! I try to pull the recoil and it barely budges. I`ve turned the mower over and I cannot see any sticks or debris that would prevent it from starting. I`ve removed the spark plug and can turn the mower blade by hand, I`ve even changed the spark plug. Just frustrated now any help?

Most likely either the engine brake cable is broken or stuck and not releasing the brake, or the mower was tilted and oil got in the cylinder. Take the spark plug out and see if it will turn easily. It might shoot gas or oil out the plug hole, so keep this in mind when choosing where you do this.
