Question about Garden
Place you hand on the top of the engine (the screen looking round'ish thing) and try to physically turn the motor. If it turns, it's not seized - just for grins and giggles, try to crank it now - this simple turn of the engine corrected a problem on my almost 20 year old B&S and my Father-in-laws <1 year old B&S - both are 12.5 HP.
I hope this helps...

Have you checked the starter motor? It sounds like it is bad. You might be able to remove the blower housing cover and physically turn the starter teeth and then try to start (after putting the cover back on). If it tries to start then you have a bad starter (dead spot on the winding). Just replace the starter and you should be good.
