Mower wont start

My son was cutting the grass and turned the mower upside down at one point. Now the mower will not start. I was told there may be oil in the head. How can I fix this problem?

Turn the ignition off (short the spark plug wire to ground, if necessary) Remove the spark plug & turn the engine rapidly several times with the starter. Replace the plug with a new one, & you should be O.K. Check for the smell of gas in the oil, as this may be a good time for an oil change, Roger
