Try putting alittle straight mix oil (1/2 oz.) in the cylinder through the spark plug hole and let it soak for 1/2 and hour. The piston should be almost all the way up and the muffler off, then with the plug out, work the engine with the starter rope until all the extra oil pumps itself out. Then check to see if the compression has come up to 100 psi +. If the compression comes back up and there are no other issues, it should start for you. Have you checked it for spark ?
But if it dosen't regain it's compression, you are better off getting a new edger.
