    I thought it might be a switch, but it kind of makes a noise like its bound up!
    Any input would be helpful!

    What model mower do you have?
    I would remove the deck belt and see if the PTO engages then, if it does then you have a bearing somewhere on the deck that went bad or you have something lodged in the blades.
    If the PTO clutch was locked up your engine wouldnt turn.
