high pitched noise...need help please

Hi all,
I'm new to this forum and need some advise.
I have a Honda HRR2166VXA mower that when the blade is not engaged its emits a high pitched sound like a bearing (my guess)....if you engage the blade, the sound stops and mower runs fine...as soon as blade is disengaged, the loud sound begins again.....any suggestions of what to look for here? thanks for the help....I do appreciate it.

If you are in the land of the insanely stupid then it is probably the bearing in the blade clutch.
If you are in rest of the world where they do not chop their hands & feet off with their lawnmowers it will most likely be the upper bearing wearing allowing the pull start to foul.

Most likely its the lower bearing in the clutch....I would just not worry about it...Mowers are for mowing, meaning the blade is engaged and cutting the grass...simply shut it down when not mowing...
