Ooooh, sounds bad. Can you turn the engine by hand? If not, engine is seized. Can you turn it freely a little and then it hits a hard stop? Then the connecting rod is broken. The good news is a seized engine is not guaranteed to be a death sentence for the engine. There are ways to free it, then inspect for damage. The connecting rod, may have done damage to the block or not, depends on where it failed. The connecting rod requires disassembly of the engine to fix.
You are probably correct by saying the engine is half siezed. Rust will get inside the cylinder if it is not used very often. This is a common problem. You are doing the correct thing by turning the engine over with a wrench while putting oil or penetrating oil down the cylinder. The cylinder usually cleans up after a while of turning the engine. But please note that if this is the case then rust has gotten into the cylinder and it may have caused some damage. I have "broke loose" many engines by using the penetrating oil and turning them over by hand with good success. But this may cause it to use some oil, break a ring, or cause more engine damage. Be careful and good luck. Hope this helps.
What you are actually getting is Chg Oil (change oil). This is preprogrammed in, as a reminder for you to service the engine. It will go back to the hour meter mode after about 1 hour of additional runtime. If you have changed your oil and filter, there is nothing else to do. The oil and filter need to be changed regularly. If the oil breaks down in your engine, it will lose it's lubricating properties and the engine will seize up.
