Does the engine turn at all? If it does, the you probably need to replace your fuel filter, air filter, and spark plug.

On small engines, when they get turned over like that, oil tends to go places it shouldn't. Usually that means that your filters, and carburetor, and from there into your cylinder, fouling your spark plug.

Check those items, and replace any that have traces of oil in/on them.

How do i lock blade so i can un screw the bolt. I need to resharp the blade


I use a piece of 2x4 . Tip mower onto it's left side, stand 2x4 between deck and blade and remove bolt. You will need to use your leg to keep mower from rolling back. This is just a simple and inexpensive way. You may also buy a special tool to hold the blade while you remove the bolt.

Runs but when u engadge the blades it dies


I would try bypassing the safety switch on the mower at the bottom of the blade control stick. It's meant to prevent starting the motor with the blades engaged but it or another safety switch can be bad. You may have one for reverse, the seat and brake.

Lawn mover will not start, was flipped over


The clicking noise may be the blade hitting the side of the mower or it was not put on properly. It needs a balance to the aluminum flywheel on top of the engine. The blade adapter and blade provide this balance for the engine to run.
Good Day.
