Silly question, but you do have the safety bail handle pulled to the main handle??? have you checked the oil?? Did it quit on you & you couldn't start it??? Did you hit something solid (servey picket comes to mind for my lawnmower) If you can check these & get the numbers from the engine, the pros will be here soon to help.... Roger

Tie the safety clutch to the handle, remove the spark plug or at least the plug wire and see if you can turn the blade in any direction, report back and someone will get it going. Have a good one. Geo
