Lawn mower engine wants to run backwards

When trying to start my mower, it's like it seizes for a second. Can't get it to start at all

Welcome! But you have to be more specific than that. Make, model, age, rider, push? How's the oil? How has it been running? All of this unknown, my first question would be if you may have hit something with the blade(s). Your description doesn't say this, but your title mentions wanting to run backward, which would case me to suspect the flywheel key.

I moved your thread to the gasoline powered equipment forum.

Runs backwards ? Seizes ? Not even an engine brand ?
