Tell us more, tell us more--so we will know the score! Your question doesn't tell us much!
Did you hit anything with the blade? Is gas getting to the engine? Did you check the flywheel key? Was the key sheared. If so, it will be out of time, and you can pull yer arm off and it won't start. do you get a kick-back when you pull the starter rope? You will have to do some dismantling of the shrouding and the flywheel nut, to find out if the key is sheared.
If any of these questions pertain to your engine, then thats what to check.
