Abrupt stop on pull cord

I posted this a while back and got a few good mows since (thanks again by the way):

I go out there today and it doesn't pull out at all. Unlike the last time when it let you "wrestle" with it a bit (but still wouldn't start) this time there's no "wiggle room".

Tried the tips in the aforementioned post, no joy.

Any ideas?

Hi, I didn't see your prev. questions or answers but if it wont let you pull out any rope at all pull your spark plug out and make sure you don't have fuel, oil or something else in the engine causing full compression. Did you invert the mower to clean the bottom?
