hello,
i'm sure you are going to be asked to provide a little more information like the model/type/code of the motor and model number of the mower. without a little more information it will be tough for the folks to answer better. with that information i would check the seat switch but hang in there, the pros will be along soon.
does the mower otherwise run fine?

At this point we don't know if it's a push mower or a riding mower.

Does the blade not turn with the engine?? Honda is the only one I've seen with a blade clutch....

i'm kinda lost but i'm going to try and help with some questions to clarify....oh, since its a pushmower i guess my seat switch idea isn't it.
I had a toro push mower years ago and like hopkins said, the blades turn when the engine turns. are you holding the blade brake against the pushbar or are you releasing this because that will kill the engine.
You should be able to look on the back of the mower,left side near the discharge chute for a sticker to tell you what model this is. Is this a new mower? New to you? Was it working last season? Is this an electric start model?
Exactly what do you mean when you say 'engage the blades'? The only things to engage I know of are the blade brake and the self propel things.
Sorry for all the rambling questions but I think we are lost and I want to help.

It only has one blade, and it is engaged all the time, whether the engine is running or not. The only thing I can guess is that it dies when you try to engage the self propel?

Any chance the OP misunderstands the kill bar? He holds it to start, doesn't realize the blades are turning when the engine starts, then he thinks he actually needs to release the bar to engage the blades but he of course is just stopping them and killing the engine spark.
