Welcome to JUST ANSWER small engines, let me try to help you !! Why was starter solenoid replaced? Same reason? Remove the spark plugs and see if the engine will spin? If not, see if you can turn the engine by hand, using the flywheel screen up top.

Seems that engine is locked up. Person that was operating the mower at the time it quit said it started smoking and suddenly shut down. Few minutes later it started back up , ran a few minutes and quit.

!! I was afraid of that. Probably a lack of oil! Or oil that was thinned by gas contamination.

There was plenty of oil and it shows no sign of gas contamination.

but engine is seized and can't be turned with wrench on the flywheel nut? Usually does not seize for no reason!??? Drive pulleys under the engine not bound up?
