It could be a couple of different things. A couple of things that you can check yourself before having to take it to someone to look at it:
1. Open the hood and try turning the engine by spinning the round "cheese grater" looking part that is attached to the flywheel. - it probably won't turn.
2. Remove the spark plug(s) and try again. (Be careful, if the the cylinder is full of gas/oil it will come out as you spin it by hand.) - DO NOT use the electric start to try and turn it over! This sends spark to the plug wire and could ignite any fuel causing severe burns and/or other serious injuries.
You were unable to spin the engine over by hand without the spark plug(s) in it, then you may be dealing with anything from a wedged starter gear to a seized engine. Fuel with ethanol added to it attacks the rubber/neoprene seals in carburetors and often times allows fuel to fill the crankcase and cylinder. If this has happened the above mentioned plan of action will let you know. As always, anytime the fuel mixes with the engine oil, you should change the oil to prevent the engine from locking up under normal operation.
I hope this gives you a little bit direction. =)

if there is a fuel bowl on the bottom of the carb with a center screw take it off and clean it make sure you have new fuel and filter and clean your air filter too

Get a good DIY neighbour with a bag of tools to have a look. If not then see your local garden machinery shop.
