Follow the h t lead and then pull it off the spark plug.  

Is the lead on the plug tight as it needs to be on tight .how old is the mower ?

also last time you used it did you run all fuel out of it or leave some in ,if you’ve left some in the fuel can go off and block the  carburettor  Etc

You really need someone ( neighbour?) who is able to remove it and perhaps clean it, a spare plug is a good idea with these engines.

Good point on the possibility of blocked carburettor.

How does the engine run, ie, mis-fire enough to prevent you using it? Does it start ok?

It starts ok it just sounds different, I’m able to cut the grass but the noise is annoying

Maybe you might be better with an electric mower?

You bought it a only a few months ago.It sound different now.

 

Can you ask your neighbout to check  the following.

 

If the mower has a 4 stoke engine, it will need oil and must have enough oil in it.

 

If the mower has a 2 stroke engine it will need a small amount of 2 stroke oil adding to the petrol at each fill up.

 

If you run it without oil, it will pack up completely.
