Try testing with a new plug. I had JD do that. The customer ran the engine with the choke on and ruined the plugs. New plugs and it ran fine after I retrained him on how to use the choke.

Next, would be to check the "trigger" if it is a Kawasaki engine.

If Briggs or Tecumseh engine, check with kill wire disconnected. If still has condensor, check points and condensor. Could be bad magnetto(coil).

If Kohler engine, check points and coil.

Should be a small thin sqaure box on opposite side of engine of carb.

I do not know how to test it. They can be pricey if guessing that is the issue.

I would pull the shroud first and make sure a mouse didn't chew wire or leave a nest on top of sparkplug wire. Then, I would try that box.

The one below is for a motorcycle but looks similar to the mower module. The mower module/trigger might have 2 or 3 wires.
motorcycle module/trigger.
