My lawnmower stopped, starter cord won't pull out.

My Craftsman Lawnmower Model no. 247.38293 /Briggs and Stratton engine Model 120000 series 675 stopped working. I took it out of the box set it up according to directions, put in gas and made sure enough oil was in it. It started up and I began mowing, but it was a little too low to the ground and difficult to push in the tall grass, and sputtered out a few times. I raised the height of the wheels and now it won't start, the start engine cord won't even pull out all the way, appears to lock out aften being pulled an inch or two. What could be wrong with it?
